asshole of an ex, his bratty, cig smoking 9 year old daughter who not only kicks the h in the calf, but kicks her car in the daughter s kind of awesome , the h s ex, cold as ice and snotty, snobby MIL, and the incredibly unsympathetic, I told you boss back in London Wow, who wouldn t enjoy this book.In an altercation regarding his daughter, the H pushes the h aside so she falls, hits her head on a rock and gets a concussion Yeah, he s a charmer The h is stuck in the H s house for a couple of weeks where the daughter gets cosy with her since no one, especially daddy dearest, will have

being a nine year old hooligan, she ended up liking the h and actually had a personality We are also denied the bitch witch of an aunt getting her comeuppance In re writing history, or in this case the end of this book, methinks that the H s bastardly ways will finally come in handy and he will take care of that situation as he is Lord of the Manor I think some shunning is in order 4 second time

an avalanche wrapped in typhoon whacktasticness with this one This one is either a no star or a five star and it all depends on where you fall in the spectrum of HPlandia utter outrageousness and then how willing you are to tolerate a completely and utterly martyred h with NO JUSTICE anywhere.I really don t like this one, but I only remember that after I have breathlessly finished the last page and am still going WHO DOES THAT More importantly, WHO WOULD TOLERATE THAT Of course I have had several consultations with the Captain by this point, so that could explain the delayed response Whatever, this is definitely a love it or hate addition to the annals of HPlandia.This one starts with late twentish h going home for her cousin s funeral Which would be kinda boring BUT, the cousin s husband was the h s husband first They married young and the h was trying to combine marriage with a TV producer career and the H, the local lord of the manor, wanted her to jettison the job for the heir and the spare production The h s cousin, the daughter of the h s vicar uncle, was found in bed with the H in their home and the h dumped his cheatin hiney for pursuit of career satisfaction, since love proved to be so disappointing and hurtful this is after the requisite miscarriage of course The H doesn t care, he is an alcoholic and literally states that he can pike anything he wants to, irregardless of what the h thinks about it Yep, this H is a blatant cheater, like so many of AM s H s are wont to be, and the h still has a bit of a spine in her youth before age and lack of calcium supplements dissolve it, so she moves to London and a career after her vicar s wife aunt explains that her daughter is preggers by the H and the H marries his little afternoon delight Ten years on, munchkins are singing ding dong the witch is dead the H s second marriage was not a good one, but he was just too hungover to do anything about it, and the h s uncle, in whatever passes for a brain cell in his noggin, invites the h to return for the funeral AM makes the h attend, cause AM just cannot resist nailing her h s to the pillars of fiery torment No one is really happy to see her Not the H, who is still inconveniently getting a tent rise from the woman who willfully refused to bear his children in favor of her career and then sneakily kept taking ingestions of birth control to boot, after he had tossed all the h s pills Not the vicarage harpy wife aunt, who has been doing a whole lot of manipulative plot stirring behind the scenes for all these years and for some reason is deluding herself that everyone is deeply mourning her slime pustule of a daughter Not the H s mother, who is so frostily snobbish in her aristocratic superiority that she could bring on the next ice age just by exhaling too long and not the cigarette smoking, foul mouthed, physically assaultive, ostensibly ten year old daughter of the H by the dead cousin Tho the H has serious doubts that the daughter is biologically his And just to increase those fiery flames of h torment, the h gets kicked by the dubious daughter, knocked aside by the H and gets a concussion which means she is now stuck at the H s house for a few weeks while she recovers Her boss has no sympathy for the h s plight either and strangely enough, the only one who actually makes some concessions to the h is the H s dubious daughter who turns out to be the most interesting and well developed character of the book There are several little flash backs of when the H and h were married and their love seemed pretty sweet in a young adult married kind a way Up until the H decided his wick needed dipping elsewhere of course.But AM has an explanation even for that It turns out that the now dead cousin substituted her own birth control pills to show the H that the h wasn t taking the heir and spare making seriously and the H got drunk and the cousin jumped into bed with him in anticipation of the h s return home I leave the question of whether or not the H actually dipped his wick up to the reader tho the H claims he did not, but then he also turns right around and claims he was really drunk so essentially he has no clue what he did And the cousin was certainly working toward a big H rising, so odds are stacked against this H s veracity, as we shall soon see when the h goes to confront her nefarious vicar s wife aunt The h decides that she needs to confront the aunt on her lies, because OF COURSE the h believes the H when he says he NEVER SLEPT WITH THAT WOMAN, this is AM s HPlandia after all So it is off to the vicarage we go and the h is all ready for her Evil Lying Relative smackdown The h seems to have the high cards when she points out that the H s daughter is nine not ten and wasn t born until a year after the H and cousin married, so of course the aunt deliberately lied and helped the cousin to scheme her way into local gentry respectability and doesn t she feel ashamed of herself now Then the aunt comes back with a double down full house hand of her own when she tells the h that the daughter was the cousin s second pregnancy, the cousin miscarried weeks before her and the H s first child was due and if the h won t accept the word of a bitter and angry carbuncle pustule masquerading as the vicar s wife, well she can just go ask her Uncle the Vicar, cause a Man of the Church would never lie The h, who by now has just had enough of the whole mess, hightails it back to London Then her Snow Queen ex Mother in Law shows up and begs the h to return to the H It seems the H s daughter had an accident and supposedly the h was told, but the h of course knows nothing She rushes back to the drunken H and the H tells the h that is all her fault, Rule 1 in triplicate here, and the h agrees but she still loves the H and will tolerate whatever foreign wick dipping he might need to do and she has quit her job to go into mass production of tons of heirs and spares for the big messy, I can t believe I am still upright after all the Captain I drank HEA.You just have to read it to believe it really This one is absolutely a memorable experience and reaches either the very heights of HPlandia whacktasticness or scrapes the very bottom of HP tropyness Which ever you decide, it is definitely one wild HP adventure When Rachel s marriage had broken up there had been no possibility ofreconciliation Not only had her husband, Matthew Conroy, looked elsewherefor love, but the woman he had chosen was Rachel s own cousin, Barbara Ten years had passed since then and Barbara was now dead As a reluctant guest in her old home, Rachel felt the stirrings of her past love for Matthew But wasn t it too late for them to pick up the pieces of the relationship they once shared And did either of them want to try Gah This one killed me, and surprisingly so This is one snuck up on me I thought I had already read it and was remarking it when I realized it had slipped past me It s not very different plotwise from many I ve read but it moved methan most of the others You had nasty relatives and a conniving cousin, thus the name, A Relative Betrayal The first half of the book I spent floating along reading about the H h seeing each other again after ten years with little flashbacks about how they Gah This one killed me, and surprisingly so This is one snuck up on me I thought I had already read it and was remarking it when I realized it had slipped past me It s not very different plotwise from many I ve read but it moved methan most of the others You had nasty relatives and a conniving cousin, thus the name, A Relative Betrayal The first half of the book I spent floating along reading about the Hh seeing each other again after ten years with little flashbacks about how they met and little things about their relationship such as their first time They were a very sweet couple And thenOMG I spent the second half sniveling and snotting through the whole thing The big event murdered me and left me desolate until almost the end I m not going to give anyspoilers as to know what s going to happen will kill the emotion It s that emotional roller coaster that has me slapping a big 5 stars on this one But maybe someone else might not be moved like I was This is definitely a very good read in my opinion Make sure you have plenty of tissues, or maybe I just need some Midol Could not get passed his cheating before they even divorced A great novel about secrets and lies The hero and heroine fell in love and got married, then they split up because she believed the hero was cheating on her with his cousin After the divorce and the miscarriage of her baby due to the stress Her cousin eventually married her ex husband and gave birth to a daughter Now her cousin is dead and the real story of how it all happened is coming out Now nothing can stand in their way or can it the dead cousin was devious horribly so but what i condemned harshly was matt actually setting house wid her after his wife left rachel also shud have asked for an explanation instead of running away they really did not care much about each other as they divorced so easily and have been separated for 10 years when the story starts really sad Couldn t really get into this book I didn t finish it and wasn t paying enough attention to even understand the storyline.
