What the heck happened?!? Now, I've never been blown away by a VC Andrews book, but go in expected juicy and ridiculous drama that fans all seem to expect. This had your treasure trove of Andrews every single card was thrown. This is where the spoilers are...We have psychotic family member that lives in a fantasy land, tragic accident leading to paralysis, accidental death of a family member, tragic death of the only nice

When I read these novels back in the day I would have given them 3-3.5 STARS and now would say about one Star

I started reading VC Andrews books in the 1991 and stopped about 2003.

I have read:
-Dollanganger Series
-Casteel Series
-Cutler Series
-Landry Series
-Logan Series
-Orphans Series
-Wildflowers Series
-Hudson Series
-Shooting Stars Series
-DeBeers Series
-Broken Wings Series

As a preteen reading these novels was a rebellion and the gothic theme also seemed cool. I stopped reading this author because

3rd book in the Novel series - Great story, great suspense..I've never read a book in this short of time. I couldn't put it down. I Can't want to start the 4th book.
I don't know why I expected these to be any good. The series gets so progressively racist and ableist with both physical and mental disabilities that I wonder if it's even worth putting the effort into the next one, which is blessedly the last one.

I'm going to read the Flowers in the Attic series at some point, which I'm hoping will satisfy my craving for scandalous trash without making me roll my eyes every five seconds and and wince at some other "tragic mulatto" trope the ghost writer decide

I enjoyed the earlier books that Andrew Neiderman wrote after V.C. Andrews' death, namely the Cutler series. But after that, each series he wrote became progressively less like the masterpieces VCA herself would write. The Landry and Logan series were enjoyable, and the Orphans and Wildflowers miniseries were all right. But I was glad when Neiderman announced his return to a full-length series. I read Rain and Lightning Strikes, but both books were disappointing, and this book no less so. VCA di ...more

Loved this book. Looking forward to the next one in the series. I did notice a few mistakes that should have been picked up though like on one page saying Veronica not Victoria. also confused as to why through the first two books Rain calls her sister Beni but in this one calls her Beneatha. .. I know it's her name but still... continuity and all that lol

I remember sneaking these books from my moms book collection when I was 11 or 12. The storyline to all the ones that I have read were pretty terrible but I couldn't stop my 12 year old self from reading them! I can't say I do not like these books because I use to love them! I think I may read one at 26 and see how I feel about them.

In the third book of the Hudson series, Rain has to deal with inheriting nearly everything from her grandmother. Her mother, stepfather, and aunt are less than thrilled, threatening to take legal actions against her until one tragedy after another leaves Rain so helpless that she finally gives into her bossy aunt's demands . . . and what a price she will pay.

This is a re-read--nearly all the V.C. Andrews books I'll be reading are--and I remember not liking this much the first time I read it. I d
After finishing this the 3rd book of the Hudson series I have to wonder if anyone bothers proofreading any of the story before they rush it off to sale. There are numerous inconsistencies by the time you get to the 3rd book and it becomes frustrating to know the story better than the author seems to.
one of the best, most loved series/authors of all time. V.C. Andrews books are something so easily recognizable and new books continue to evolve to go with the times and bring in a whole new generation of loving readers

v.c. andrews books are all absolutely amazing and very easily distinguishable from any other authors. i love the darkeness, secrets, lies, very addicting, i have almost every single book!
Anne Marie
This was the best book in the series so far. It finally had the suspense I was looking for. A character getting killed, another one going crazy, and all of Rain's problems made this a good read.
I'm enjoying this series so far! I haven't checked to see if there is another book in this series or not. But if there is, I will definitely read it. I found the first two books in this series to be not very thrilling, at least nowhere near as thrilling and suspenseful as the "flowers in the attic" books. I am, however, liking these ones, and this book in particular is probably my favorite one in this series. :) :)
I really enjoyed this book. It was filled with time-stopping revelations and strange secrets from Rain's past, present, and future.

When Rain falls off a horse, her life has changed forever. When she meets therapist Austin Clarke, she knows that she has found the love of her life. But there is just one thing: Rain gets pregnant. How can one give birth to a child if the one is handicapped?
This book has been my favourite one out the whole series: I really liked how Andrews incorporated aunt Vic
Angel **Book Junkie**
This is probably my favorite book in the series. I think that it really took me into another world and I really liked the story of Rain and how she coped with all that life threw at her. I always knew she would be a strong person and I am so glad the path she chose to take in the end. It actually was a very wise decision that many would not be able to take. I honestly believed the characters and the story and I am pretty excited to go back in life and read some of the classics I knew and loved w ...more
Very quick read. This was the last series that was in the old tradition of more than 2 books for the series. Was not what I expected, but in a good way. After reading the first 2 books this one certainly had a twist that was unexpected. I found this series better than the ones that are newer. Of coarse I have not read many of the newer series. Got a little behind on V. C. Andrews reads there for a few years. Book was good, but not great.
I was really impressed with the third in the Hudson series of this author. The story keeps moving and turning, it is met with such positivity and optimism despite all the negative things that keep coming at the poor character, Rain. The other characters continue to develop, though with so many died out in this book, goodness knows what will happen in the next one.. can't wait!

loved it rain trys to go on with her life in a wheelchair with the help of her therapist but as they seem to get closer Victoria wants him fired and ruined.when Victoria is in the house alone with rain she starts to act crazy and rain trys to get away from her but being in a wheelchair has put her to a disadvantage.this is the 3rd book in the Hudson series.

This was the last in the series. You got to follow the life of a young girl throughout her trials and joys. The author had you feel her sadness and enjoy her happiness. The ending of the series stopped in her adult years and brought to end her issues finally. She was finally was happy.
i haven't read a V.C. Andrews book yet that i didn't like, and this was no different.

I didn't mind this book but it gets a bit much. Everything that could go wrong, sure does go wrong for Rain!

More suited to young teens.

Recommends it for: Anyone who enjoys V. C. Andrews books.
Recommended to Dawn by: I have read all the books by V. C. Andrews.
This was the third book in a very enjoyable series. This was one of the better series put out in V. C. Andrews name in recent years.
It was an okay read. Certainly not the best V.C. Andrews book, but good enough I'll read the next book in the series.
