The Midnight Rose (2013)
language
English
4.23 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: I love Lucinda Riley's books, and this one didn't disappoint. Written in the past, Anahita's story was heartbreaking yet beautiful. In the present I found Rebecca's story a little too twee, she was a bit too 'perfect' for a Hollywood A-lister for me. I also found towards the en...
The Lavender Garden (2012)

review 1: Reading this book is the equivalent of watching an engrossing movie, enjoying the storyline and plot (even if it is somewhat predictable, it's comfortable, like a cheesy Hallmark movie), and then right when you think there is a big pivotal confrontational scene coming up, the mov...

review 1: It's only fair to give it 2 stars because I did finish it, but it was the worst plot I have read in a LONG time....and it just goes on and on. It all is so contrived, and there is no depth. It all reminded me of soap operas. I didn't like any of the characters or their implaus...
The Girl on the Cliff (2011)

English

review 1: Prende, bisogna dire. Riesce a variare lo stile della narrazione, a mantenere la suspense per quello che succederà, a mantenere la coerenza dei personaggi, a coltivare buoni sentimenti senza essere stucchevole. Lo stile è talmente semplice e lineare che ci deve essere un grande s...
Die Mitternachtsrose (2013)
language
English

review 1: As I suspected, I really enjoyed this - I tend to have a soft spot for books set, even partially, in India... The shifting back and forth wasn't too disturbing, although it felt a bit frequent to my taste. I wouldn't have minded a bit more about Anni's later life, and the end wit...

English

review 1: Title is midleading but had read the Orchid House by Lucinda Riley and enjoyed it, so took this one from the library. Some interesting history about India and the Maharinis as well as English history. Story deals with a young Indian girl in 1911 to present day...her story, chall...
The Light Behind the Window (2012)

review 1: Very interesting & entertaining read. Part of the historical background of this book was the SOE: F Section who were a group of British women who served undercover during WW2 in France. These heroines helped the Resistance & others to get vital information back to England that he...
Der Lavendelgarten (2012)

English

review 1: The fact that this book was a work of fiction based on historical back-ground made me even more interested in the story. I love how much depth there was to the characters. There were a couple twists in the story that I did not see coming. Something I appreciate as a reader. I lov...

review 1: I have mixed feelings about rating this book..It took me a while to get involved with the plot but I had read good reviews so I stayed the course. The story itself is very good although somehow, the author left me feeling disconnected from the characters...primarily Emilie. I al...
Das Orchideenhaus (2010)

English

review 1: Ok - so I liked the book, but I just keep getting stuck on the fact that it seems to minimalize immorality, because it makes a person "happy" or it all works out in the end {for some people and 50 years later}. I don't think that is what the author was necessarily going for, but ...

review 1: I really wanted to like this book, and I certainly had a hard time putting it down while reading; however, there were some big problems. First, what was with the casual homophobia? I get that this was set at time when being gay wasn't widely accepted like it (kind of) is now, but...

language
English

review 1: This book was good. It was compelling and easy to read, but there were parts of the book that weren't completely worked out. I just seemed like ti lacked depth in some places. That said this was an easy read, and would be a good book for an airport, sun-bathing, or a mini-vacatio...
Das Mädchen auf den Klippen (2011)
language
English

review 1: I liked this book but it was nowhere near as good as The Lavender Garden for me. It had great potential with the back story with Mary and Anna. What kept this book from being a 4 star for me was Matt & Grania's current day story. I felt like Matt was just an outline of a characte...

review 1: It was refreshing and a fun read. The pace was good and the characters were interesting. I just didn't think Grania was very smart. I'm not sure anyone would really run that fast and far and be gone that long, to get away from a man who loved her as much as the author describe...

review 1: A highly enjoyable book ... not quite as good as The Midnight Rose (which I'd give 10 out of 10), but maybe an 8 and a half, if only for its predictability.Rosanna first meets Roberto Rossini when she is only 11 years old, and he is already a rising star of the La Scala opera hou...
