My Review:For readers of Elin Hilderbrand, a delicious and irresistible commercial novel set among the high society galas and gossip of Palm Beach.
Amid the glamour and galas and parties of Palm Beach, Faith knows that image often counts as much if not more than reality. She glides effortlessly among the highest of the high society so perfectly that you would never suspect she wasn’t born to this. But it wasn’t always so; though she hides it well, Faith has fought hard for the wonderful life she has, for her loving, successful husband, for her daughter’s future. In this town of secrets and gossip and rumors, Faith has kept a desperate grip on everything she holds so dear, built from so little. And yet even she—the only one who knows just how far she has to fall—never suspects from which direction, or how many directions all at once, betrayal will come.
It should be criminal to compare this book to anything Elin Hilderbrand has ever written. This book did not contain an ounce of joy and its language was so clunky that I felt like I was reading an instruction manual, at times. These characters talked at and over each other, never with one another. I am honestly mad that I finished this one because the ending was so perverted in attempting to be interesting and/or different. That is, it was so bad that it became predictable. I would skip this one unless you want to read about completely vapid characters that are not written well.
A Palm Beach Wife comes out this week on April 9, 2019, and you can purchase HERE. Hopefully you have better luck with this one than I did!
Dreamless. That's what her life has become, Faith realizes an hour after she leaves the shop. She pulls up to the Ritz-Carlton in Fort Lauderdale, parking on the far side of the main entrance, avoiding the valet. By the ocean, south of Palm Beach, the Florida Gold Cost is pacifying. Not her turf, the charm is untainted.
