"Satisfaction guaranteed" says The Washington Post. The night before her lavish wedding, Cressida Forrest went to bed serene and happy.

In the genre of juicy literary soap opera, aka women’s fiction, Vincenzi’s prolific pen demonstrates she is a master at presenting melodrama, heartache, and racy details for which readers will happily suspend disbelief. Set mostly in the English countryside, this story follows a sprawling cast of characters whose lives become permanently altered by a simple event. A bride fails to show up for her wedding. From jilted groom Oliver to resentful sister Harriet, from rags-to-riches supermodel Tilly to careless billionaire Theo, from hapless parents James and Maggie to patiently waiting Susie, the many characters may at first overwhelm readers but then slowly begin to edge their way into the complex threads of the plot. The myriad characters eventually endear themselves with their individually fascinating stories, each of which could have been its own novel. Vincenzi’s lengthy epics satisfy like a box of decadent, luscious chocolates. This offering should draw in readers who enjoy the sweeping works of such saga-weavers as Anne Rivers Siddons and Rosamunde Pilcher. --Julie Trevelyan
