The Heiresses

The Heiresses - Allison Rushby DNF at 53%I had really high hopes for this book but unfortunately we didn't mesh. I adore the 1920's era and the idea of a New Adult book set in my favourite period of social history was compelling. From what I read the story of these triplets intrigued me especially the character of Clio who was the most sympathetic. However Thalia was wholly unpleasant and vapid but it was the combined force of Ro and Vincent who ultimately made me make the decision to discontinue. Vincent's misogynistic views towards women and Ro's agreeing with him in order to claim him as her own was too much to bear. I thought the writing was good and the overall idea was intriguing but in the end I didn't care enough about the characters to continue.
