4* Review of: Glittering Fortunes Victoria Fox

Glittering Fortunes
If you like Jilly Cooper and Fiona Walker ‘Glittering Fortunes’ is for you. Set in a Cornish coastal town it is packed with interesting characters whose separate stories are cleverly interwoven by the author.

Olivia an artist returns to her hometown after an unsuccessful stay in London trying to establish herself in her chosen career. Charlie Lomax is the eccentric landowner the last remaining Lomax in the town after the tragic disappearance of his parents. His brother Cato a Hollywood A’ lister fled the manor after a drunken car crash which devastated Charlie. Now the scene is set for a reunion of the brothers,in which Olivia becomes entangled.

The plot’s simplicity complements the complex characters making Glittering Fortunes an interesting read. I particularly liked Susanna and Addy; their characters are riddled with flaws which makes them instantly recognisable.

A racy read but less so than Temptation Island another of this author’s books I loved. If you enjoy multi character books you will find this an easy read great to escape the day-to-day grind with.

I received and ARC from Harlequin (UK) Limited via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
