The husband dies in a hotel with a young woman in his bed. The hotel manager not only calls the police but he also calls the wife. When they all arrive at the hotel all is revealed in that the woman in the bedroom is the husbands third wife and all of a sudden the husbands second wife arrives but only the first wife is legal and none new about the others.
The wife (the legal one) feels sorry for the second wife when the will is read as she needs to leave the marital home. Bored yet!
The legal wife meets the handsome partner of the wife who wants to sell the business but she tells him she is going to wotk there and keep the business going for the sake of her very young son.
Sorry but I gave up after that - too boring

Where to start?Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 5 April 2017
Oh where to start? I LOVED this story and all of the other books By Sylvia McDaniel. So well written and interesting characters with realistic plots. The plot in this case is an eyebrow raiser as Marian discovers that he deceased husband Jean had two other wives! To save her children's livelihood she must get back to the family business and work with the Louis Fournet, her ex's business partner. Louis is ambitious and marian finds it hard tpo trust another man. A HEA? Of course but in such a great way. Didn't want to put the book down. :)

A Woman of a Certain Age
Predictable and boringReviewed in the United Kingdom on 14 February 2017
I downloaded this for free and quite honestly am glad I didn't pay for it. The storyline is predictable, the characters are one dimensional and I really was not transported back in time. Each time our leading lady found herself in danger because women of that time were not due any respect it was all over in minutes. The fact that the man who was supposed to be falling in love with her put her in danger in the first place became tedious and boring. The fact that she then forgave him again and again and again. Yawn. And many times the language was far too modern to be authentic. No I can't give you an example off the top of my head but I really can't be bothered to read the book again to find one. And no I won't be reading the other two books in the series
First classReviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 March 2015
This is a well written and apparently well researched romance. The characters are well drawn and very sympathetic. The poor heroine is struggling with her husband's trigamy (he had three wives!) and the need to make his business a success for her young son. She has many real difficulties to overcome many of them created by her husband's partner Louis but the two of them are becoming attracted to each other. The engaging story keeps us reading on until the rather satisfying conclusion. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the good news is that there are two more books in the series so that we can find out what happened to the other wives.

No plot, lukewarm characters and boring.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 May 2015
Sorry to say I found this story boring and the characters lukewarm. There was nothing which made me want to keep turning the pages, I did read to the end but it was painful. There was no real plot and nothing to excite a reader to want to know more. If you want a historical romance set in Louisiana then I would suggest Jennifer Blake is the author you should choose, at lest her stories have depth, the characters have some bite and they are full of well researched detail of the location and period.
