The cover synopsis did not do it justice. I found myself almost immediately wrapped into the story. A young girl, raised in a brothel, goes away to school, determined to escape once and for all her scandalous past, create a new identity and lose "the darkness" that seems to live within her family tree. All of the Pierron woman have been hookers, sinners, evil, and Hope Pierron is determined to break the cycle. Hope tosses away her past like a bad dream, and eventually gives birth to her own daughter. More than ever she is determined that the legacy of darkness will not inhabit her daughter, and what follows is a story of terror and suspense, well-written and enjoyable at the same time. Read Glory's story (Hope's daughter)and find out if she's able to escape "The Darkness". The interwoven love story is moving, the plot enticing, and the the whole book a fabulous read.
good book. New Orlean, 3 generations of women.
a romantic thriller - 3 generations of woman in New Orleans - grandma was a legendary madam - mom who on the fact of it is a welathy hotelier - but secretly succumbs to men - and then there is Glory - will she go down the same path?? unaware of the family secrets she falls in love with a man who knows everything
This book kept me reading gotta try more by this author.
I thought that it would end alittle differently however it was still good.
This book will keep you wondering right up to the end. So many possibilities....Being from Louisiana, it was a joy to read. She definately caught the atmosphere and culture, making this an absolute joy to read.
I really liked this book and would have given it 5 stars if it would have ended a little differently. I don't want to give away too much so I won't say any more, but it is still worth the read!
This one is more like a romance novel, but still has a surprise ending.
Great book. Spell binding right to the end.
One of her best books yet!~
Excellen thriller and mystery novel.
I like all of Erica Spindler books!
A fantastic story and real page turner. Can't wait to start the next Erica Spindler.
Very good, but not her best. Kind of slow, but she really gives you a character to hate, and 2 to root for.
This book was good, but I didn't think it was as suspenseful as Spindler's other "thriller" novels. This had more aspects of a romance novel with a little mystery thrown in. The characters were great though... Hope St. Germaine is downright frightening as a super-strict mother with a shocking secret.
This is one of those you just can't put down. It had so many twists and turns that you couldn't wait til the end to find out how it all turned out.
