This is a wonderful, fun and easy to read venture with elements of fashion, romance, mystery and family drama. The story switches between Daphne's past, and the present lives of the grandchildren Billie and Celeste. It's a wonderful light read, and a good edition to my holiday collection.
The Last Will and Testament of Daphné Le Marche is an intriguing story about a fascinating family. The Le Marche family has plenty of secrets and I couldn't wait to find out what they were. The story gripped me from the start and I read this book in one sitting. I loved that it's set in several countries, that it's filled with strong female main characters and that there are many surprising twists and turns. I was captivated straight away and fell in love with Daphné's beautiful products. Kate Forster manages to bring so much of life into the Le Marche family members, the struggling Le Marche company and the love lives of her main characters, which is absolutely fantastic.
Celeste and Sybilla aren't alike in many ways and I loved that they each had a distinct personality. They both learn to fight for what they believe in. I like books about independent women and they're great examples of capable feminine main characters. Sybilla isn't used to living in luxury, she's down to earth and really smart. Celeste is glamour personified, she's stylish without much effort and even though she has her insecurities she knows what she wants and she isn't afraid to go after it. It was fun to read about both women as well as their mothers. Robert is another kind of person altogether. He's unkind, brooding and dark and he's angry about the past. His character is interesting and he brings a lot of unexpected commotion. The personalities of the main characters are carefully created and together they bring a wonderfully complete family history.
Kate Forster's writing style is easy to read. Her story is fast-paced and set in different times and countries. I enjoyed the variety, the whirlwind of emotions and the complex family relationships. Love is an important element of the story and Kate Forster manages to form some amazing connections. The Last Will and Testament of Daphné Le Marche is a terrific book filled with spectacular developments and shocking revelations. I had loads of fun reading this novel and highly recommend it.

Daphne le March is the central character until the last few chapters.
But who will have the final word?
You will move backwards and forwards in time between the characters, however the outcome resolves the whole story right at the very end of the book
