Anice Mayhew is a manipulative little rat and a great villain. She moves to New York and conquers Manhattan with her devious machinations. She gets everything she wants, but we all know that she'll never be happy. Great fun!

Oct 01, 2014 Andrew rated it did not like it
Although technically a romance between Phyllis and Terry, this is mostly 185 pages of pure, unadulterated cattiness and devious bitchiness from her cousin Anice. The romance, such as it is, plays very much a second fiddle to the machinations of the lovely viper as she sinks her poisonous fangs into everyone around her in her amoral quest for wealth and power, leaving me cursing and flipping pages impatiently until I reached the unsatisfactory end.

While realistic I guess, this wasn't what I was h

This was such a brilliant period piece, showing the bitchiness of a woman out to get everything she can out of life, if only to spite her cousin. I wish there had been even more to this story!

I read this in lieu of a chick lit novel. Served the same purpose - love interest, strong female lead character(s), and a good ending! It is definitely more a romance novel then a mystery or crime novel.

This was a very quick read. Nothing amazing, but good little story.

This book is incredible. It's utterly unbelievable, and manages to be entertaining despite there only being one sympathetic character in the entire book and the plot just going from bad to worse. Thoroughly recommended.

Shelves: noirboiled
This is not a faithful reprint of the original novel but a bowdlerization. You should boycott this book.

This is a pretty weak offering in the series of harlequin reprints.
