Sheldon is an amazing writer and I don't like when someone uses him (or any other author) to sell books with his (or hers) name on the covers. Just try to write something unique.
I think the reason why I gave this a 3 stars as opposed to a 2 stars (like I did for Mistress of the Game) was because I wasn't subconsciously comparing Sheldon's characters and plot with Bagshawe's; something I couldn't help doing with Mistress of the Game since Bagshawe was writing ...more

Tilly Bagshawe wrote it in the same pacing like Sidney Sheldon. Reading the pages when the heroine, Grace B., was in prison, I can’t help but relive memories of Tracy Whitney in Sidney Sheldon’s “If Tomorrow Comes.” The story is based on Bernie Madoff’s ponzi system.
I both love and hate some of the characters. I was caught up in the the fast pace of various twists of fraud and crime, turns of betrayal and revenge, some elements of love and awakening, hooks of suspense, ...more

Sidney Sheldon has been the first ever writer who made me start reading books, and will forever be my hero. And TB, hero's follower, is also amazing. It's a tale with twists and turns, a real page turner, or burner, as you wont get enough, and the pages turning wont be quick enough, ever, if the words flow like this.
But there is something missing the tempo starts loosing some were in-between not tha ...more
