Lucinda Riley a bit a mixed bag of an uneven read At the grand old age of 95, Sir James Harrison, a celebrated actor, dies leaving behind a heartbroken family, none so than his beloved granddaughter, Zoe, single mother and up coming actress For Zoe, James was of a father than her actual famous actor father, Charles Her brother, Marcus, an aspiring film producer has endured career flop after flop, constantly being financially rescued by his father and looking for a large sum of money to financially back his latest project that he is sure will turn his fortunes around An ill and heartbroken Joanna Haslam, an ambitious tabloid journalist, rises from her sick bed to cover Sir James funeral, attended by famous celebrities To Jo s dismay, an elderly woman, Rose, sitting next to her takes a turn for the worse, so she accompanies her home Rose dies but a letter from her has Jo delving into secrets from the past that promises an exclusive that could make her career and shatter the establishment It also places Jo s life and those of others in danger.For a while, I thought this novel wasn t for me, but I found my interest engaged after than a third of the way through However, the meandering story and plot got too messy occasionally, making for a less than clear narrative Zoe has a past and secrets in the present that echo what happened earlier with her grandfather The intelligence services are all over the Harrisons and Jo, determined to prevent the leakages that threaten a nation, willing to eliminate all threats as we see from the rising tide of dead bodies but also having to cope with a rogue agent Simon, Jo s best friend from Yorkshire, finds himself facing personal and professional quandries that challenge his friendship with Jo In this intricately plotted tale with twists, a story of lies, deception, love, loss and secrets, Jo is going to need all her wits about her if she is to survive I found this to be an uneven and a confusion of a novel, but enjoyed it overall though Many thanks to Pan Macmillan for an ARC flag 73 likesLike see review View all 13 comments Jun 22, 2018 Pauline rated it it was amazing review of another edition Shelves

and thriller elements from saga queen Lucinda Riley Originally published in 1998, as Seeing Double, it received fairly mediocre reception twenty years ago Conditions of the time and the main storyline crux, which is closely linked to the British monarchy, contributed to this book s downfall Now, twenty years later and due to the success of The Seven Sisters series, along with seven other well received saga novels, Lucinda Riley has provided The Love Letter aka Seeing Double with another chance.The Love Letter opens in London, in 1995 The world has just lost one of its finest and most enduring actors, the late Sir James Harrison Sir James death leaves his family with a broken heart and it marks the revelation of a shocking secret that has links to the royal family Involved in the revelation of this secret is an ambitious young journalist, Joanna Haslam When Joanna is tasked to cover the funeral of Sir James Harrison, she discovers the existence of a letter, penned by the late actor This letter and the contents inside has the power to shake those at the very top of the establishment, as well as those close to Sir James As Joanna becomes and determined to set the contents of the letter right, her life suddenly comes under fire Will the love letter destroy Joanna I consider myself a big fan of Lucinda Riley, I tuned to her work when I had read all of Kate Morton s work and I was looking for a similar style author After years of closely following Riley s work, especially The Seven Sisters series, The Love Letter filled my Riley gap while I sit waiting for The Moon Sister, which is the next chapter in The Seven Sisters series.Reading the opening author s note was rather enlightening The Love Letter has had an interesting road to publication and re publication Originally published as Seeing Double in 1998, it seems this novel did not receive a great first reaction from readers and publishers alike Riley uses the climate at the time in Britain and the themes of the book, which are closely tied to the monarchy I can see this as being an issue, as I did live in the UK at this very point in time There was no confidence in the monarchy and public opinion was at an all time low, following the tragic death of the Princess Diana Riley has patiently sat on her novel and has now re released her book to a very different audience and perhaps a receptive climate The popularity of the modern royals, the release of the award winning Crown series and the time that has passed since Princess Diana s death may help to re energize The Love Letter.There are some great themes covered in The Love Letter from espionage, to intrigue, history, drama and romance There are links to the monarchy, media and MI5, along with ties to the entertainment world The Love Letter will be sure to capture the hearts and minds of many readers due to the broad themes I believe it will particularly appeal to fans of the royal family.Riley has composed a great character set Joanna was a standout Riley does an excellent job of outlining Joanna s journey, which covers her career, friendships, love life and her key involvement in exposing the truth behind the love letter Joanna is joined by a set cast of well defined individuals, from Zoe, to Simon and Marcus There is not much I can fault by way of characterisation Riley also manages to balance good and bad figures throughout the proceedings of her novel.Setting is always Riley s strength In all of her novels the setting has a strong presence The Love Letter is situated mainly in London in 1995 This is a time and place I know very well and I thought Riley nailed it A sense of nostalgia washed over me as I read this novel I really enjoyed the historical moments that were delicately woven through this set piece.It was interesting to see Lucinda Riley take on quite a different format with The Love Letter There is much of an emphasis on action, thrills, adventure, espionage and deceit It marks a different direction for Lucinda Riley and I enjoyed it very much Who would have thought that the contents of a letter written seventy years ago would be so explosive Lucinda Riley lets us know And the ending Well, it was tied up neatly, but for me it was just a touch too unbelievable The Love Letter is a saga indeed, at almost 600 pages long, it will consume you It is full of romance, secrets, lies, treachery, betrayals, twists, turns, unexpected revelations and a good old historical mystery I m sure this response to The Love Letter won t surprise you, I will be back for of Riley s work and I recommend The Love Letter to all readers.The Love Letter by Lucinda Riley was published on 31st July 2018 by Pan Macmillan Details on how to purchase the book can be found here I wish to thank Pan

this stand alone book would be And, the mystery and the events surrounding the mystery is gloriously entertaining to read about I love mysteries that makes the characters in books dig deep to reveal truths from the past And, if I m lucky the love stories that usually are a part of books like this will work out for me.Unfortunately, that s what made this story limp a bit I found myself not really caring about the romantic hookups Partly, I think this lies in the fact that the character never really truly connected with me And, this is a massive book, the Kindle edition is 624 pages And, to feel, unconnected with characters in such a large book is a bit hard Thankfully the main story, the secret that James Harrison left behind is pretty amazing If the story had focused on that, rather than the romantic entanglement, not to mention all the cheesy moments especially the ending than the book would have been truly great So, would I recommend this book Yes, I would It sure is a thick book, but Lucinda Riley is a great author and if you re lucky you will find both the mystery and the romance great.

the story into something really extraordinary You will definitely be shocked many times throughout, and be happy, sad, angry and scared for the characters as you get to know them.This is definitely no dull soggy love story for old ladies, like I initially thought Lucinda Riley, I m really impressed I m definitely jumping straight to reading the 7 Sisters series right away.Fun fact about this book It was launched first in Norway It s a re written version of Riley s then known as Edmonds 2000 novel Seeing Double, which was so controversial at the time that it ruined her career She didn t publish another book until 2010, with her now married name Riley And now she s back in the game As far as I know the book is only released in a couple of languages so far, but it will be available in english

may have come across this book before as its original publication name Seeing Double 2000 It has been substantially rewritten and renamed however.I was drawn to this title as generally I enjoy Lucinda Riley s books Unfortunately, I found this book really quite peculiar It is almost like it is not sure quite what it wants to be Historical, suspense or spy thriller, and the lack of firm identity coupled with a collection of a number of characters many of which are not particularly likeable let the story down considerably.It s hard to say if there are two main characters I d guess the journalist Joanna, and her friend from the Home Office, Simon are Along with Zoe and her brother Marcus Harrison There are so many other characters, both living and dead, I did have to briefly pause a few times to remember who they were and what part they played I also did not find the romantic relationships believable and compelling.This doesn t mean the basic premise wasn t good or that it didn t hold my attention It did I liked the different place settings, the male and female characters were on the same footing, and the intrigue involving an acting dynasty plus some rumours about the royal family and the establishment were great story ideas They just went on too long, in too many different directions and by the end the further plot twists were just plain ludicrous.Not a terrible book,

segreto a lungo celato destinato a riapparire Joanna determinata a scoprire la verit , ma non sa ancora che il prezzo da pagare sar molto alto Se sopravvivi per raccontare questa vicenda, in un modo o nell altro lascerai il tuo segno Le storie di Lucinda Riley non sono mai scontate, lo sanno bene i suoi lettori affezionati, ma quest ultimo romanzo si rivelato una vera sorpresa L autrice, infatti, abbandona la vena romance e d vita a una trama misteriosa e articolata che coinvolge persino la famiglia reale inglese non quella che tutti conosciamo.Personaggio riuscitissimo quello della giornalista Joanna, costantemente in bilico tra scelte lavorative e affetti personali Donna precisa sul lavoro, si ritrova suo malgrado a essere coinvolta in una situazione pi grande di lei Non si arrende, coraggiosa, assetata di verit e di ambizione L arrivo della misteriosa lettera la sconvolge, destabilizzandola e portandola a fidarsi di Simon, amico da sempre, ma uomo costretto a celare una

reale.Intrighi, misteri e una fitta rete di personaggi apparentemente secondari sono gli elementi principali del romanzo Nulla accade per caso, ogni gesto compiuto, anche quello che potrebbe apparire come irrilevante, ha un significato e comporta un cambiamento preciso nella narrazione.Dopo un inizio un po lento, la trama entra nel vivo La prosa fluida e il ritmo serrato catturano l attenzione del lettore che non riesce ad abbandonare il libro sino a quando non avr scoperto cosa realmente accaduto Anche quando sembra di essere arrivati alla fine con una idea personale su chi possa rappresentare la chiave del mistero, si scoprir che c ancora altro da sapere, nuovi colpi di scena stanno per spiazzare nuovamente il lettore.Un romanzo intrigante, denso di eventi e spiazzante con una sorta di

quite something With twists, turns, unexpected deaths, and revelations, this kept me hooked, gasping and sometimes rolling my eyes Everything in one.This was the first Lucinda Riley novel I ve read, but I don t think it ll be my last the breakneck plotting and slow winding tension saw to that The story starts with the death of Sir James Harrison, renowned actor and the guardian of a secret letter which has the potential to destroy untold lives like that of Joanna Haslam, who gets sent an old love letter after Sir James funeral, and suddenly becomes embroiled in a very dangerous web of deceit, betrayal and an ages old mystery.Though there s romance in the story, it takes somewhat of a back seat to the mystery unfolding, which was quite refreshing and quite shocking From the enigmatic actress Zoe Harrison, to Joanna herself, nobody ended up with who I expected them to, and deepened the suspense.And the story was already tense enough The mystery is compelling and doled out in very small portions, so you don t really know what s really going on until the very final page That s alright, though, because it lets us get to know our central characters , from the Harrison siblings, Zoe and Marcus, to Joanna and Simon, her best friend who is hiding a secret agenda whom I also strongly, strongly dislike after all the things he does in the book, you get to the end and tell me he deserves a happy ending.For me, though, it was the women that carried the story Zoe s struggle to be a single mother whilst also trying to drive her career forwards was compelling, and a really interesting look at the film industry, whilst Joanna is warm, witty and with such determination that you really find yourself getting behind her as she fights to discover the truth behind the secret letters.She needs all the help she can get, to be honest, because Riley really serves up the twists here alongside ratcheting tension, there are several shock twists, some of which I thought deserved to happen at the end of the story rather than in the middle, as it took the momentum out of the writing somewhat Several times, my jaw dropped and several times, something happened that I absolutely did not see coming This story takes a premise and completely goes to town with it, creating a massively elaborate plot which sometimes strains under the weight of its own detail By the end, it sags there s a wildly implausible ending and some happy endings that seemed a little forced.On the whole, though, The Love Letter absolutely delivers what it set out to do create a breakneck, entertaining, mystery slash romance that keeps you gripped Give me a minute to slow my racing heart though flag 2 likesLike see review View 1 comment Sep 25, 2017 Nina rated it really liked it review of another

and we all know that the Royals went through a bad time in the late 1990 s This is Lucida Riley s first thriller, and set around a letter that contains information that could damage the English Establishment, and contains information that people are prepared to kill for The is not a particularly fast paced but it has all the ingredients of a brilliant thriller suspense, twists and turns, tension, murder and conspiracy.Like Lucinda Riley s other novels there is a fairly small cast of characters, who are all there for a reason and play an integral part in the plot she doesn t have characters who don t really add anything like some authors do Journalist Joanna Haslam is junior reporter trying to work her way up the ladder, but did not go looking for the story that fell into her lap at the funeral of celebrated actor Sir James Harrison What makes Joanna different is that she has a moral code, is loyal to her friends and won t compromise those friendships even for a story that could advance her career As she becomes embroiled in the search for the mysterious letter and what it contains she puts herself in danger, and some of those she comes into contact with Simon has been her best friend since childhood, but he himself has secrets that he can t disclose and puts his friendship with Joanna under pressure Their relationship is very natural and comfortable, like brother and sister which makes certain decisions difficult for both characters Additional characters include MI5 agents, Zoe the granddaughter of the famous Sir James Harrison, her brother Marcus, who drinks too much and goes from one project to another, and Rose the mysterious mourner at Sir James funeral who brings Joanna into centre of this state secret And of course there is the fictional royal family.It is hard to say too much about this book without giving the plot away, so I m going to keep to short and sweet This is a fairly slow burner where we are drip fed pieces of information so that you have to wait until the very end of the book to find out the full story about the letter, the secret it contains and its effect on the characters involved There is plenty of action and edge of the seat moments that intensify the tension and suspense of this book Romance, family secrets and drama make this a multi layered read to keep your interest through out he book.Lucinda Riley never ceases to amaze me in her writing, this is a new genre for her and even though it was written twenty years ago it is still relevant and an all encompassing read I was totally engrossed in this book and carried it around in the hope of getting a few minutes to read some The Love Letter is suspenseful read, with some unforgettable characters, and a plot line that grabs your attention I genuinely
