    1 thought on “Misfortune's Daughters”

    1. Gripping read! engrossing,betrayal,romance,fun,exciting and an entertaining storyline with some incredible well developed characters by someone who just started her craft in writing such a great book.commend (paperback!)

    2. To be honest, I haven't read the whole book, only about a quarter. but that was enough for me to decide that it's not a book I would like to read. It's like when you find tozic food, and you decide to stop continuing the meal after afew bites afraid that it would hurt your body. I think this bbok is the same for my mind. i'ts pretty cheap, the plot is old, and it's not fun to read. so i'm stopping reading. I'm not proud to have it as my own, and I'm not even going to rate it!Of all the fast food [...]

    3. I bought this book because I was not careful in the store and thought I had found a Jackie Collins book I hadn't read. Yeah once I started reading it I realized that writing style is just another area where Joan differs from Jackie. This was not the fun trashy to read romp I was hoping for. Ah well. I shall be more careful when picking up books in the future.

    4. Wow I was pleasantly surprised great summer read thougt would be just another cheesy soap opera type novel but had good story behind it and Joan manages to throw some curve balls and surprises to the plot

    5. This book was such a chore to get through. Valley of the Dolls is one of my favorite guilty pleasures, so every now and then I pick up one of these "trashy" novels hoping for a bit of light fun. This one however was not fun. It was work. Boring work.

    6. This was a quick book--another I couldn't put down. It was another one of those "lifestyles of the rich and famous". Her character Laura was similar to Grace Kelly--an actress who marries a rich tycoon, from Greece, and has two daughters who lack for nothing. I really enjoyed this one.

    7. This book was a change of pace for me since I read a lot of mysteries. It was okay, not too exciting but I can see how the author put in the effort with a few good stories that eventually tied together.

    8. Juciy and raunchy and very reminiscent of Jackie Collins but not one of the best of this racy genre. Although I did enjoy it.
