Reviews

Plain's tepid latest focuses on two women--privileged but plain Gwen Wright and beautiful but poor Jewel Fairchild. Their lives occasionally intersect, and eventually Jewel marries a wealthy man and discovers that money can't buy happiness. Gwen, meanwhile, marries a poor but honest man--but she still finds herself drawn to Jewel's husband, and the foursome is soon tangled in a web of deceit. Unfortunately, Jewel and Gwen don't evolve throughout the novel; Gwen is a character that some readers might find intolerably perfect--smart, privileged, shy, well-spoken, with simple needs and a tragic past--but any irritation that one might have with her is eliminated by the calculating and shallow Jewel, who is too pathetic to be a legitimate antagonist and too tragic to really be hated. It functions well as a simplistic morality tale. (Nov.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

For two couples in a little New England town, big corporate greed spells trouble, and one couple eventually crashes and burns. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
