    3 stars is a bit generous, but I ll be nice because VH is a fave That said, this isn t her best It drags, drags, draaaags to the pace of a halfwit snail What s especially irksome is that the Big Reveal shows how good stuff is happening behind the scenes, but we rarely see it because Lenore isn t directly involved with the infamous Silk Vendetta she s only a peripheral piece of the

    This is one of Holt s better books Well plotted, well characterised and well written, The Silk Vendetta is about a woman who suffers the trials of being born out of wedlock Her parents are French, but her mother died in childbirth, and her father did not have the guts to acknowledge her existence But Lenore Cleremont had a formidable grandmother, who arranged excellent terms with her emplo

    This book is all about guessing who the hero is Is it Candidate Apro he s a nice guy and he actually marries the heroinecon he actually marries the heroine early on, he s dead meat or a fruit fly, see earlier VH reviews for the life expectancy thereof Candidate Bpro he s a nice guy and he rescues the heroine from her villainous cousin when she s youngcon he marries villainous cousin s sister, he s

    I liked it but the romantic part of it was a little disappointing The book as a whole was pretty detailed but in a mundane rather than exciting way much of the time The story was good though.On the whole, I think the VH novels are under written at the end there is not a totally satisfactory payoff, to me Too many things happen in too few pages at the end things happens too fast and in particular the romance part

    Books written by Victoria Holt are so cheesy, but sometimes that s exactly what you need I ve read a loooot of her books when I was 14 15 years old..that was the last time I ve read them I absolutely loved them at the time I m thinking of reading one of her books just for the old times sake

    Hard to rate, because do I rate it as a fiction read, in general, or within it s specific genre The atmospheric was fun and engaging, although typical in a pulpy way, but the writing specifically, sentence structure and dialogue was stilted and simplistic At least it really did sound like the grandmother was French with English as a second language , as she didn t seem to use contractions. Anyway, if you are looking for a fun ch

    Victoria Holt has such an interesting writing style, very unique Because the stories are never quite like one expects, I always enjoy her books This book is a perfect example It is written first person, from the heroine s point of view, which adds an intimacy with the reader again, a precarious choice and one that must be done well to succeed It is a wonderful combination of romance and mystery and even though the villain is quite obvio

    Dull as dishwater Yet not dull enough for me to stop reading, which is a mystery in itself The plot is..weird Through most of the book, you forget that there is even a plot But at the end the mystery is solved, while you re going like oh yeeeah, there was a mystery, I remember now Most of the characters are boring creatures with boring lives The only exception is the Comte, who only makes an appearance at the very end I didn t dislike this book but I d
