LoveReading Expert Review of Old Sins

Penny Vincenzi’s first novel is every bit the thrilling blockbuster. Julian Morrell returned from WWII with a passion and drive to set up his own cosmetics industry and his mother’s careful financial management ensured that it grew to be a huge empire. All through his life Julian has enjoyed playing the six key women in his life – his mother, his ex-wife, their daughter, his mistress and his new wife – off against each other. When he dies he leaves 49% to his daughter and 49% to his wife with the final 2% left to a mysterious young Californian man named Miles Wilburn and as the two women wrestle for the controlling stake some very old sins come to light. Rip roaring, compelling and hugely enjoyable.
