Way too many characters to keep track of. I had to flip to the beginning chapters several times to be reminded who was who. With that said, it was an interesting storyline and kept me entertained all weekend.

My appreciation for the Sally Harrington novels may have negatively influenced my expectations for Riverside Park, which is structured more like an old-school romance saga from the 70s or 80s. Other readers have called it a soap opera and they're correct.

Read the Sally Harrinigton titles for a truer idea of how engaging L.V.W.'s writing can be.
oh, so lame. i love books set in manhattan, but other than the author throwing in the occasional "They walked up Riverside Drive," you'd never know that's where the characters are. and for a book with an entire subplot about book publishing and editing, there sure were a lot of mistakes!

A predictable story that was a little confusing to follow as each chapter switches to a different set of characters all introduced in the first chapter when I have to admit I did not pay enough attention to remember who was who later on.
This book definitely read like a soap opera, but for some reason I couldn't put it down. There were far too many characters in it, but I eventually caught up. Great vacation read, otherwise I'm not sure I would have liked it as much.
Meh. It was pretty much like a soap opera in a book. I enjoyed it but it wasn't anything spectacular or particularly noteworthy...I literally just finished it and I've already forgotten most of the plot!
Ever watch a soap opera?? That's what this is, the life of the rich and powerful in a book and all their shallow details of lifestyle. Fun, escapism reading.
Clearly, you can only luck out so much when you randomly pick books off of the library shelf. More like a soap opera.
2 stars is generous. I can't believe I read and finished this book. A star above stupid....
A quick read. Love to follow the different characters and how they all interconnect.
Nice interwoven story of several families and their struggles in love.
Read like a soap opera. Mindless read, but enjoyable.
this is soap opera of a book - beee
