A Daughter's Trust Reviews
Sue - she has some serious issues with not only commitment, but love as well. It didn't help when she found out that her grandmother had been lying to her, her entire life. I'm not going near her other family. She's also insecure and I can't understand her (or her reactions) at all. I didn't like her.Rick - he has deep scars from his childhood. His mother was an alcoholic, and while she was "sober", she always managed to get him back from the foster families he was with. At the beginning of the book, he found out he had a sister he never knew about, after she commits suicide, and that she gave birth to a little girl Carrie. He's doing anything in his power to get custody. That's how he met Sue (she was the foster parent with whom Carrie was placed).Both of them had tragedies in their pasts (view spoiler)[ She had a miscarriage when she was 18, and his daughter died recently (hide spoiler)].The hero's mother Nancy, was a big part of the story, but it was hard for me to like her, mostly because we see her through the hero's eyes, and his memories, which are pretty bad.Heroine's family plays a big part as well. It's a good thing that there's a family tree given in the book, sorting them out would've been much harder otherwise.All in all:2.5 starsThis is the first book in The Diamond Legacy series. The other books are about Sue's cousins Belle (For the Love of Family), Joe (Like Father, Like Son) & Daniel (A Mother's Secret).
The writing was solid and carried quite well the slightly far-fetched plot. Despite my initial reluctance, I quite enjoyed reading this book. Fever does amazing things to a person.I'm blaming the misplaced names on the translator since Joe and Adam don't sound like names that easily confused, but I'm blaming the author for not properly addressing Sue's ingrained bias. Or that's how I felt. In the end Rick had faced his demons and ghosts and started to deal with them, whereas Sue was stuck on the stages of grief and repetitious thought pattern. Maybe that's understandable, but entertaining literature it does not make.Still, it's on the better side of Harlequin romances, especially, if you happen to like babies in the mix.
This is book one of The Diamond Legacy series. The story is complex, not only for this book but setting the story for the next book in the series. Much of the story revolves around foster care and adoption issues. Of course there is romance thrown in, it is a Harlequin book after all! I thought it was a good read and yes there are sex scenes but truthfully the romance takes a back burner when looking at the story overall. I would recommend.
The family dynamics are a bit confusing at first and it's clear that it's the first in a series so there's a bunch of background and set-up at the start, but it improves once you get through the opening.A sweet romance.
Chcela som skúsiť naozaj sladký román pre ženy, či som náhodou nezmenila názor na tieto knihy a zistila som, že.... nie!
May rating is 4good book to read but its too short...
