Book Review - A Dangerous Fortune

A Dangerous FortuneA Dangerous Fortune by Ken Follett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

From the author of the great historical drama, Pillars of the Earth, this story of two banking families in London in the late eighteen hundreds is a brilliantly drawn tale of suspense and murder, filled with characters who live and breathe. We care about what happens to the people in this book, we root for the heroes and boo the villains. In A Dangerous Fortune, as in all Follett’s books, he has masterfully recreated the period in which it is set, bringing us fully into the social, political and societal mores of the time and making the effect of these on his characters both realistic and poignant. A highly recommended read

I currently have four published fiction novels. I hope you get a chance to read and enjoy them:

 • Abigails Christmas ~ A holiday fantasy about a Abigail who goes looking for a tree on Christmas Eve, and ends up with the man of her dreams in a sleigh in the Rockies --- with a wedding in the offing!

 • The Memory of Roses ~ The enduring love story of two generations of the McQuaid family unfolds on the beautiful Greek Island of Corfu. It is a tale complete with beautiful and passionate women, handsome and fiery men, and an intriguing mystery.

 • Delighting In Your Company ~ Delighting In Your Company is a paranormal romance set on an exotic Caribbean island, featuring a handsome ghost and an adventurous heroine who travels back in time to solve a mystery!

 • Sonata ~ Sayuri McAllister has just arrived home to Vancouver to find a robbery has taken place at her family home, and it is being investigated by her old flame; Alyssa James who she barely knows, is about to become her new stepmother; and Alyssa’s brother, Hugh James, a charming Irishman who is intent on bedding and wedding Sayuri. It’s a confusing and difficult time for Sayuri, especially when dangerous accidents happen to her father and herself – or are they accidents?
