I admit that Virginia Andrews books are one of my guilty pleasures. Ever since I read Flowers in the Attic when I was in my late teens I have loved them, and read every one since. Yes, there was a change after she died and the ghost writer took over but somehow I just felt I had to keep going.

This one seems in some ways to go back to the old stuff and I felt was less 'young adult' targeted than some of the others (particularly the Orphans series).

It had some dodgy moments. I didn't feel that the central character of Jordan was written as the 7 year old she was supposed to be and I don't feel that the issue of precocious puberty was dealt with as well as it could have been.

Still, a quick summer read with all the usual stock characters you would expect from 'her' books.
