    5. I came across this book at a book sale and picked it up for a song I haven t read Victoria Holt until now because quite frankly, it never occurred to me that I should buy one of her books I remember seeing her paperbacks in the romance section in the local five and dime all through my adolescence but I was interested in buying magazines Of course, I was going to be a supermodel and would never need a romantic suspense novel unless I needed kindling Was I ever in for a surprise Holt does atmosph [...]

    8. I really enjoyed this book Much like Janet Evanovich, it was just a fun read It was one of those books you like to curl up with for pure entertainment I liked that you didn t find out the whole story until the very end It was done so well, you didn t even know there would be surprises and there were many.Ellen Kellaway, the poor relation to cousin Agatha and her husband Josiah, was never allowed to forget how she got to live in the lap of luxury, even though she never got to touch it per se Her [...]

    9. I began the book with hopes for a pleasant mix of romance and suspense The first two thirds of the book were pleasant and engaging I immediately liked the heroine, Ellen I was attracted to her spirit and determination to look positively at life despite her bleak future Then plot turned, as expected but not the way I expected, poor Philip Enter Jago Now, I had every intention of liking the man He was all that promised romance attractive, wealthy, rescuer, mysterious, and much However, I quickly [...]

    11. The plot works well and many scenes are vividly portrayed Although certain outcomes were predictable, owing to the author recycling storylines from several of her previous works, certain revelations did surprise me.The characters are all well drawn, especially the heroine of the piece.As usual with Ms Holt much of this novel revolves around a long suspenseful build up to a climax that s over too soon I often feel that this author doesn t squeeze the full potential out of dramatic exciting fright [...]

    12. This was my first Victoria Holt book, and it was amazing Ellen was an amazing character so captivating I felt like I was in the book with her I think this book was interesting near the end, where things started to speed up It definitely didn t end the way I thought it was going to, but I was even satisfied with the ending than I would have been otherwise It also kept me interested all the way through I would totally recommend this book

    14. 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.at 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

    15. I read all of Victoria Holt mystery romance books in my 30s Holt books are a higher caliber of romance fiction than something like Harlequins Historically accurate Good recreational reading with something to keep you turning pages.

    18. Well I didn t care for this book The dialogue was unrealistic, the main character drove me crazy, and some of the other characters I just really didn t like The only reason I gave it two stars instead of one is I didn t guess the plot twist kudos for that.

    21. I ll try not to spoil it, but the hero is a jerk Ms Holt is not always successful when she tries to create enough mystery so that we can t tell who the good guy is In this case, the big reveal only confirmed the jerky arrogance of the good guy Plus the plot had a lot of weak points Oh well The island sounded cool.

    22. I had been in a reading slump for a few weeks, discarding books left and right for a slew of reasons Actually, only one reason I just could not get into any of them So one afternoon, I decided to go to my local used bookstore and found three treasures, one of which was a rather battered hardcover of Lord of the Far Island by Victoria Holt I reached for this automatically, knowing that whatever reading ailment has seized me, Holt will cure.Victoria Holt holds a very special place in my heart as Q [...]

    23. Somewhere in my mind I would like to believe that Victoria Holt sat down one day and thought Rebecaa and Jane Eyre are so great, I am going to make stories just like those And then she did In reality, successful historical novelist Eleanor Hibbert probably thought Rebecaa and Jane Eyre are so great, I am going to start writing books like those and make lots of money And she did, after choosing a suitably Victorian gothic writer pseudonym Well, here s another from 1975 It s filled with the usual [...]

    27. Apprehension rules delightfully Victoria Holt pen name of Eleanor Hibbert was a prolific author of romantic mystery and suspense novels with settings in creepy, eerie and freakish locales with people to match Her books were consistently satisfying as proven by how many were published and now, thirty or forty years later, are being reprinted.Comparing this book to Bride of Pendorric, it has similarities the heroine s obscure origin and family relationships are gradually revealed, diaries are foun [...]
