This is the third and final book in the Necklace Trilogy that revolves around an ancient necklace with its own folklore that it will do good things for those who have true hearts. I have not read the earlier books, which I regret because I felt like I didn't have the full story of the necklace. There were allusions to the necklace helping earlier couples in the series, so it made me curious about their stories. This is a second chance romance featuring current possessor of the necklace, Rafael - ...more
The premise is an interesting one. Rafe believes that his betrothed betrayed and he leaves her for five long years. When they meet again it's a function and they still have that undeniable attraction between them.
Unfortunately Dani has become engaged to an American business and she travels with he ...more

FINALLY, the last book in the series, The Handmaiden's Necklace. I am absolutely a sucker for second chance romance and this one is a classic! I mean, it still brought me to tears! Danielle was wrongly set-up by their friend and as a result, Rafe thought that she was unfaithful to him.
Five years later, Rafe is now in possession of the necklace and he finally hires a detective to find out what truly happened on that night. When he finds out th...more
I protagonisti si sono amati, poi hanno interroto i rapporti perchè lui non le ha creduto quando lei si proclamava innocente, l'ha pensata una traditrice e hanno passato cinque anni d'inferno... si rincontrano, lui rinsavisce e dopo varie traversie torna il sereno...
Certo l'inizio non è troppo credibile, lui si impunta per cinque anni poi una frase di ...more
There's plenty of story and a mystery to be solved and a secondary romance which could have been written as an independant story (and might have been more interesting if the action was on screen instead of reported second hand by investigators).
Then there is the part of the ...more
Kat's writing style is very easy going for me therefor allows me to just get into the characters and stories and not get all bogged down. After all, this is a just a funny, fictional romance novel, not The Great Gatsby and should be read as such. Ive seen too many reviews ...more
Bello, movimentato e appassionante, anche se forse nel finale non c'era bisogno di aggiungere la tanto agognata maternità miracolata, rendendo a parere mio, la storia un pò inverosimile ...more
This book is easily a 5 rating for a deep emotional impact. The character of Rafe was adequately described in the first two books so that made a feeling of personal attachment as the book began. I have to say I quickly determined the ending but I do not think it would have been good to have had a different ending. Loved the against books and certainly would recommend this trilogy.
I was so bored that I skimmed much of the book. I hated the heroine's actions and lies. I was not drawn to the hero. This was my first Kat Martin book and will probably be my last. Sexual content: moderate.
