    One thought on “Heiress”

    1. I could handle the predictability of many parts of it, since they were at least handled well (at least, after the stilted beginning). But that ending!!! I kept hitting the page down button on my Palm, not believing that was how she was actually ending it!I was actually shocked at how melodramatic it was. And yeah, the whole book was pretty much a soap opera. But I didn't expect a soap opera ending!Made me go from wondering if the author's more recent books were any better (it is from 20+ years a [...]

    2. Said to be one of the greatest romance novels of all time. As I am only on page 99 of 475 I have a bit to go before I can form a judgement but so far so good (for a very obviously dated 80's novel). I feel like I have entered Dynasty and DAllas all over again. HA!

    3. first of all, i cannot say that i love the immoral fiction, such as this one (Janet Dailey is my first start of reading novel, i love her jobs, i collect all of her works as most as possible to find out). Love is all the heart of most classic romance novel, but not the immoral, Rechael's mother to the mistress of Dean although she do its as she love but why love can solve everything, Dean has wife, as JD always told in the book that Babb is so so. But i always feel awful, he should divorce befor [...]

    4. Predictable. Daddy has an affair, and keeps families totally separate. Creates trust fund for weaker, illegitimate daughter who grows backbone with money. Legit daughter left with bankrupt estate but pulls up her panties and gets to work. Lots of familial fighting with 'tragic' end that brings two sides together.

    5. This book is a bad soap opera in a novel. I found the rivalry between the half sisters to be unbelievably irrational and overdone. The "romances" were not romantic. The ending was pathetic. I was obviously expected to cry over it but instead I was rolling my eyes.

    6. I liked the character Mac , but again this book failed to entice me as he was the only likable character. A sad ending in the book though!

    7. Okay, sigh. I read this because I've been collecting trashy 80's epics and from the cover this seemed to fit the bill. And it did. Kind of. It's the story of two sisters, one legal heir, Abbie, and the other a "love child" (as the characters continually say), Rachel. When their shared father dies Abbie is left with a pile of debts that force her to sell the family seat, River Bend, outside of Houston, Texas and Rachel, not named in the will, is given two million dollars set aside of her in a tru [...]

    8. Loved it a wonderfully written story of two women suffering the results of the choices made by their parents and the mistakes they themselves make. Very good read and look forward to reading mor by MS Dailey.

    9. I enjoyed the book even though some of it was predictable. The ending was very unexpected and made the book fun to have read.

    10. Took way too many pages to tell the story of two half sisters who spent their life hating each other and loving way too many men.

    11. this is a book for horse lovers, for me there was just too much description of the horses and the history. So even though the story line was very interesting, it was spoilt by too much information

    12. Very enjoyableA predictable story line that went at a good steady pace. For me it made for a good read on the beach.

    13. Great book! I loved the setting of Arabian horse farms. The story gives lots to think about of how hate can destroy what really matters most in life--family! Thoroughly enjoyed this book ❣️

    14. I'm still not sure what I think about this bookI liked it, and it kept me interested for days. It was well written, and explored the foibles we all have. I think it was a book in which I will enjoy the journey more than the destination

    15. Two half sisters (Rachel Farr (love child) and legitimate heir, Abigail Lawson are jealous of each other and grow to hate each other after their father passes away. They both suffer from insecurity that the other sister was loved more by their father, Dean Lawson, and resent each other. Abbie and her mother, Babs end up losing the family mansion and acres due to unknown financial trouble that Dean kept hid from them. Abbie is forced to sell her ancesteral home and to auction off their Arabian ho [...]

    16. Rivais No Amor.Janet Dailey.Uma Competição Sem Vencedor. Apenas Dor!É tudo muito complexo. Um texto cheio de nuances, mas todos os romances da Janet Dailey são assim, perturbadores. Nada, nadinha convencional. Ela tem a capacidade de se reinventar, quando você acredita que está lendo o melhor romance da Janet, ela aparece com um novo texto melhor que o anterior.Rivais No Amor é o mais complexo texto que já li da autora. Porque duas irmãs, quase ″gêmeas″, se conhecem já adultas e t [...]

    17. bd yazar olarak tanıdığım bir yazardı ilk defa bir kitabını okudum ve de beklentimin üstünde beğendim diyebilirim kitabı.Aynı baba farklı anneden iki kardeş Abbie ve Rachel. Abbie yasal mirascı zenginlik içinde doğmuş Rachel yasak bir ilişkinin sonucunda doğan evlat. Babalarının ölümü ve cenazede karşılaşmaları sonrasında gelişen olaylar hayatın nasıl birden farklı yönlere gidebileceğini gösteriyor

    18. I apparently have read this book before but I didn't recognize it until I was about a third of the way through, I am not sure if that ida good thing or not. The story is good, slightly predictable. The characters seem to be rather cookie cutter but their struggles are entertaining.

    19. It wasn't badly written, that's why I'm giving it a two but the romance isn't romantic and there were cheating all around which I didn't like at all. I did like some characters: Abbie, Babs, Ben. MacCrea at first but sometimes he's such an asshole. Rachel is just whacked.

    20. This was a book I read back in the 80's and really liked. I stumbled across the copy I now own at a Goodwill store and snapped it up several years ago but finally had the time to read it again. It is a great story.
