Twists and turns and ups and downs - this book had me going down one path and just when I least expected it, I was catipalted onto a different path. And I loved it! Beyond predictable, but still enjoyable to try to see if I could guess as to where the story would lead. I randomly picked it up from my library's ebook collection and it fit into a challenge I do with a group on GoodReads.

A story of a wealthy father of three children who sent them away at a young age and belittled them from the moment their mother committed suicide. He hung his wealth over their head to ensure that they didn't cross certain lines. With a love child on the side, this quirky story did not end where I thought it would and I am beyond thankful for it. With a who dun it twist, this book was enjoyable to the last page.

A book for young and old, men and women with mystery and intrigue. A great read that I am excited to share with my readers because I had not heard a peep of it!

A power revered by presidents and kings, a fortune unsurpassed by few people on earth: all that ended for Harry Stanford the day he mysteriously--and fatally--plunged from his luxury yacht into the Mediterranean Sea. Then, back home in Boston, and the family gathers to grieve for his memory and to war over his legacy, a stunningly beautiful young woman appears. She claims to be Stanford's long-lost daughter and entitled to her share of his estate. Now, flaming with intrigue and passion through the glamorous preserves of the world's super rich, the ultimate game of wits begins, for stakes too dazzling and deadly to imagine--in master novelist Sidney sheldon's most breath taking and surprising creation ever.

When Harry Stanford mysteriously and fatally plunged from his luxury yacht into the Mediterranean Sea his family was surprised and grief stricken. Almost as surprised and grief stricken as they were when a young woman appears claiming to be Harry's daughter and entitled to her share of his estate.

Good one!

This book is definitely a page turner that I had a difficult time putting down. The story takes its twists and turns involving murder, revenge, blackmail and greed. The way Sheldon details his characters makes you want to love, hate, trust and pity them. The way this is written makes you want to know the story. I finished this book in one sitting.

Its epigraph may be from Rimbaud, but the rest of this mega-soap opera is pure Sheldon (Nothing Lasts Forever): a twisty, turbo-paced yarn of international intrigue set in the "champagne wishes and caviar dreams" world of the super-rich. When ruthless billionaire Harry Stanford is found drowned off the coast of Corsica, his three legitimate children gather at Rose Hill, the Stanford estate in Boston. They are Woody, a polo-playing playboy who likes to abuse both drugs and his ex-waitress wife; Tyler, who has parlayed a first-rate legal mind into a Chicago judgeship; and Kendall, whose success as a fashion designer is marred by her dark secret and the blackmailer who knows it. The mogul's will dictates that his fortune be divided among his "issue"?including the beautiful young woman who, hearing of her father's death, flies to Boston to at last meet her half-siblings. She is Julia Stanford, the tycoon's cast-off love child, now an enterprising executive secretary in Kansas. Of course, Julia finds herself cast as an object of suspicion by the doubting Stanfords. But even as she is drawn into the web of deceit that surrounds the family fortune, the troubled lives of the other heirs and, it turns out, Harry Stanford's death, she finds, in typical Sheldon fashion, enduring romance. This isn't Sheldon's finest. The narrative is a bit choppy and the characters less than lustrous. But his plot hooks remain sharp and it's the rare fan who's not going to be ensnared once again by this perennially bestselling author. Major ad/promo; Literary Guild main selection.

This is the first Sidney Sheldon book I have read. I picked the book up based on the suggestion of a co-worker. My co-worker thought I would enjoy the book since it involves a wealthy man's estate and the probate of his will.
There are some nice plot twists and some things that come as a shock, but the characters are not well developed and the dialogue and characters are not very believable. Sheldon focuses on the plot but not on developing the characters. I compare this to a Dan Brown's Angel's and Demons or DaVinci Code, but with less believable characters. Some of the dialogue is downright hilarious it's so contrived and unrealistic.
If you are looking for some light reading for the beach this book will do nicely.
