I second the "Disaster" comment
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
This is the best sort of book to read in paperback on an airplane. If it's left behind, it won't matter. No one would miss the writing and the story is one we've all read before. The story recalls any of twenty other books written - and written better - by anyone from Jeffrey Archer to Danielle Steele. No one expects Sheldon to be dense, provocative, or philosophical. Readers do, however, expect a Sheldon book to be accurate and well-plotted enough to lead readers to suspend disbelief, and never look back. A Sheldon book is written to convey to readers a palpable degree of tension, and an engrossing story. This book is none of these. I agree with the other reviewer that the author seems not to have done enough research into any of the subjects he/she was writing about. This is a superficial read with a contrived plot and forgettable characters. I wouldn't bother.
Has Sidney Sheldon's Mistress of the Game turned you off from other books in this genre?
Reading this has certainly turned me off anything co-written by Tilly Bagshawe.

Yuk, I wish I could give -stars
There is not a character here I can stand. No one I would waste my time with. Just weird motivations for actions that I just can't relate to at all. Glad I got it on sale.
