eBooks of the Month Family Drama

LoveReading View on Just Rewards

This author burst onto the scene many years ago with Woman of Substance which introduced us to the dynamic Emma Harte.  She then wrote some 15 blockbusters but none of them touched the passion and drama of the Harte family.  Then unexpectedly, four years ago, she wrote Emma’s Secret and we were back in the world of that extraordinary dynasty, a generation on.  Unexpected Blessings followed and now this, featuring Emma’s great-granddaughters.  Wonderful stuff.

Similar this month: None but try Adriana Trigiani or Danielle Steel.
Comparison: Sidney Sheldon, Penny Vincenzi.

Just Rewards Synopsis

Linnet O'Neill, great-granddaughter of Emma Harte, finds herself following in the footsteps of the original woman of substance as she battles to save the family business Emma created from a tiny shop. She and Emma's other great-granddaughters face heartache and tragedy and are tested to the limit as the final chapter in the extraordinary story of the Harte family draws to a dramatic close…

Linnet O'Neill returns from her honeymoon full of fresh ideas for bringing the Harte empire into the new century. But she and her mother, Paula, matriarch of the dynasty, lock horns in a battle about the future. But when Paula falls ill, Linnet finds herself alone at the helm, just as her great-grandmother once was. Will she become the new Emma Harte, as so many have predicted?

Evan Hughes, American great-granddaughter of Emma, is pregnant and planning her small family wedding. Life seems good until a harsh confrontation with her adopted sister puts Evan in hospital. And after her marriage, tragedy strikes, putting Evan under enormous pressure to support Linnet at Harte's.

Tessa Fairley, Paula's daughter, is ready to start a new life after an acrimonious divorce, and is madly in love with the Frenchman Jean-Claude Deléon. But having always believed herself to be her mother's rightful heir, and jealous of Linnet, Tessa is reluctant to forego her chances of the top spot and is caught in a painful dilemma between her heart and her head.

India Standish, in the midst of planning her own glamorous summer wedding in Ireland, is thrown off balance when her fiancé Dusty's daughter Atlanta comes to live with them - closely followed by Dusty's unstable ex-girlfriend, intent on trouble….

However, it is Evan's sister Angharad who makes the most ripples within the family, trying to infiltrate the quartet of young women and latching on to Jonathan Ainsley, deadly enemy of the Hartes, in the process putting them all in danger when the Harte family finds itself grieving and vulnerable.

The four young women need to draw on the strength of character and determination inherited from their formidable great-grandmother to win through. But then two beloved members of the Harte family unexpectedly die, causing grief and heartbreak. And Jonathan Ainsley seems ever closer to wreaking his revenge…
