    This was definitely a huge disappointment after how good the first book in the series was I was really looking forward to continuing the series but after this let down, I definitely won t be reading the final book The only thing saving this book from being one star is that it did manage to keep me somewhat entertained until about half way through But from then on I completely lost interest and the story really started to go downhill The characters became extremely predictable and suddenly everyone was falling in love, left right and center It was just all too perfectly set up and it quickly became extremely annoying Quite honestly, I m surprised I even managed to make it through to the end of the book, that s how annoyed I became with this book

    I think I gave this book a fair shake at 31% completed before dropping it like a hot potato It, unfortunately, has all the problems of book one and even slides down another notch by killing one of the nicer points of that same book So here ya go on why I dropped this one The one bright point in this whole debacle of a book is the author still takes her time in the descriptions and beauty of 1920s rural England The estate of Cavendon is beautifully described, and the fashions of the era are also lovingly brought to life I could see everything in my mind s eye, no problem.Sadly, everything else in this book that I was exposed to sucks The characterizations Oy vey Just like in book one, everybody is two dimensional at best and stereotyped There were no Daphne and Hugo equivalents in this book to save this side Everyone was either super beautiful, courageous, loyal, and true to the family OR you were evil, ugly, and an egg sucking traitor Even just having a dissenting opinion was enough to label you a traitor to the family and enough to get the cold shoulder from everyone The individuals with this dissenting opinion was villainized and ostracized as soon as those opinions were voiced Talk about family loyalty I mean if you can t have a different opinion and still feel loved with family members, than who can you with Then there s the story itself We re right back to the inane melodramas of the first two thirds of book one, only without the powerful events like Daphne s devastating event The biggest plot points by the time I quit was petty theft and marrying outside your class Maybe in another work, these might have been enough to carry the story, but not with this work or author.I m sorry to say that these two works were my introduction to the author Sad to say, they don t shine a good light on her as a writer Maybe she was just in slump when these works oozed out of her pen, but don t start with them if you haven t read the author before Horribly flat characterizations, inane plot points, and just bad writing bog this work down, like book one Pass on this one.Note Book received for free from publisher in exchange for an honest review Again, very honest, was I

    Setting England late 1920s3 1 2..maybe StarsThe women of Cavendon have always stood up to be counted for in good times or bad, and in The Cavendon Women whether the Ingham family or the Swann s, owner or servant, there is no tougher times than the late 1920s.The story opens with the Earl planning the first family reunion in many years, bringing Cecily Swann back to Cavendon.When Cecily lost her childhood sweetheart, Miles Ingham, to another woman, Cecily heartbroken left for London, and became a renowned fashion designer, But when it is revealed the famed Cavendon jewels have been stolen and financial ruin is possible, the women band together to keep the family and their home together.With their cleverness, the Cavendon women prove that loyalty, family devotion and love make them powerful indeed.This is the sequel to Cavendon Hallor maybe there will be a third book, but I enjoyed this one a tad better than the first The things I liked were, characters that were appealing, strong loving women, a lot power and emotion was put into the story as well than the first book What I wanted of was, historical detail to evoke the era as it would have added color and flavor to the story and all that was happening around these characters to round it all out And although I didn t get that, the remarkable characters made up for it But..barely There was also a nod to Emma Harte from A Woman of Substance

    As longtime followers know, I am ALWAYS on the search for something to fill the Downton Abbey void So when this arrived in my mailbox, I was sure this was it Fancy, amazing house Check Romance Check Inter class relationships Check Intrigue, a wide selection of characters, and historical amazing ness Sadly, no.The Cavendon Women starts off on a good note Cecily, a fashion designer, going back home, to the place she fell in love But the storyline falls quickly You may have noticed that I don t have a summary in this review like I normally do This is because I have literally no idea what the plot was suppose to be Maybe The Story of how a bunch of rich people had sex and fell in love with the perfect people and nothing went bad that couldn t be fixed with a good attitude So the characters I immediately liked Cecily until I realized she and ever other female character were pretty much the same person None of the characters had any depth to them, and there were way too many of them, so it quickly became confusing to read And the sisters all had names that started with D so I don t even have to tell you how confusing that could be The book kept acting like something horrible, terrible, UNTHINKABLE would happen, but nothing did Ok, so someone died but it was glazed over so you didn t even feel that bad Positive things that could be mentioned is that fashion was spoken a lot about, and the author is very accomplished, even being given a OBE Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II for her contributions to Literature.

    When we left the Inghams and Swanns it was after WW1 This 2nd book in what is soon to be a trilogy 3rd book due out June 7, 2016 continues a theme of family loyalties It begins in summer 1926 through the devastating stock market crash of 1929, the major event signaling the start of a 10 year Great Depression This is a predictable and at times cheesy read, but that is to be expected when reading BTB books It is decent escapist fiction with drama and romance and fine detailing of time and place If you enjoy reading about privileged and beautiful people during the influential Roaring Twenties and a breezy story line, you should enjoy this As with the first novel, I got confused with the numerous characters It would be helpful if the next edition includes a list of characters in the introduction or one can be found online I recommend others read the first read book in the series Cavendon Hall prior to reading this.

    SERIE CAVENDON HALL n 2Rispetto al primo volume, su cui avevo alcuni dubbi, questo mi piaciuto molto di pi Ma nonostante ci , non sono proprio quattro stelle piene Sono passati sei anni e adesso siamo nel pieno degli anni 20 gli anni ruggenti Con la scusa di una riunione di famiglia Charlotte porta tutti gli Ingham e gli Swan sotto lo stesso tetto Cos Myles e Cecily si rivedono E da qui parte tutto Le protagoniste qui sono le donne di Cavendon Bello davvero Non me lo aspettavo Finalmente ci lasciamo tutte le spiegazioni sul rapporto padrone servitore fedele E finalmente lasciamo spazio ai sentimenti, agli intrighi e al fascino della vita di quegli anni Il libro anche se ha una trama intrecciata molto semplice Le situazioni si risolvono in un baleno Ed questo quello che non mi ha fatto dare le stelle piene Materiale ce n , ma davvero a parte la situazione Miles e Cecily che dura tutto il libro, per il resto in due pagine viene risolto il problema Cque come spegni cervello perfetto Descrizioni luoghi, vestiti e modi di vivere di quel tempo perfetti E poi ora voglio sapere come va avanti L idea di scrivere la storia tutte le generazioni degli Ingham e degli Swan mi piace parecchio Siamo passati dagli anni 10 del primo libro Passando per la prima guerra mondiale e per arrivare ora al crollo della borsa del 29 E non finisce qui Un terzo libro gi uscito e quest anno uscir un quarto Devo recuperarlo al pi presto

    I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway, and if I didn t feel that I owed it a review as a result, I likely wouldn t have finished it When I pick up a book to read, I m not inclined to be impressed by the author s NYT bestseller status or other laurels Instead, I look for an engrossing story to capture my interest as I would in any book by any author, known or unknown Even though I am a Downton Abbey fan and enjoy Edwardian romances, this book just didn t do that for me The conflicts are almost nonexistent and are easily resolved, so easily that I almost wondered why the author bothered to introduce them As a result, the characters emotions come across as flat, because nothing really challenges them It s all lightness and ease and fluffy fashion, food and weddings that s liberally sprinkled with repetition how many times must I be told that Lady Gwendolyn likes to get right to the point and salt and pepper dialogue as in please pass the salt and pepper or tea, or may I take your coat I was bored The writing is competent and the characters are fully drawn, though uninteresting, but the storytelling falls flat.

    The Cavendon Woman gave you a further look into Ingham and Swann families and how very intertwined the families have been for generations Barbara Taylor Bradford gives us another wonderful saga of a family s hopes, dreams, sorrows and rise from the ashes of heartache Love that spands time and brings these two families together by marriage and birth where Love prevails I am hoping we get of Cavendon Hall in future The next generation of Ingham s and Swann s.

    In the immortal words of Luke Skywalker what a piece of junk I wasn t particularly wow d by Book 1, but this took bad writing, tell not show, As You Know, Bob, tedious Bertie Small esque descriptive repetition to new heights I can t even summon the effort to write the scathing review such god awful prose demands It was just plain bad Really, REALLY bad Also naming four flatly defined, visually identical daughters such similar names all starting with D eyeroll might sound cute in theory, but in practice So very confusing bland A book is NOT a tv show Visual cues that work onscreen aren t a part of the reading experience, y know If these samples are true to form, how BTB became such a beloved author is beyond my comprehension I still have my secondhand copy of A WOMAN OF SUBSTANCE, I ll give it a go because it s such a famous touchstone of 70s chick lit soap, but BTByou re officially on notice The DNF is strong with this one.
