*Deep breath*
Wow. Karen sure is a sicko.
But man, it made for great reading. You knew she was full of crap, and you had a feeling all throughout she wasn't telling the truth about her story, but I didn't expect her to be that demented.
I like that when I read a book though. I get pulled into sick twisted minds and go right along with whatever gets dished out.
V.C. Andrews always packs a punch with me. Each story is different, and yet I always get pulled right into it.
This is an older series, but it was new to me. I look forward to reading the next one too.

By Tez Miller TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Jan. 4 2014
Format: Mass Market Paperback
See, this is much better. Fresh, but still with the well-known tropes. Murder and fugitive-harbouring mix with abusive men and manipulative women. And Karen Stoker is manipulative to the max! Which are exaggerations, and which are outright lies? Virgin-shaming, guilt-tripping...Karen does it all, and the Stein siblings are total doormats on which she treads. Surprising that Zipporah and Jesse aren't charged with anything, and Karen seems to have gone straight to a mental care facility rather than a prison. But I just don't understand why the Stein parents would adopt Karen's child. Yes, Jesse's the father, but shouldn't he take responsibility for being led by his wang rather than his brain? Shouldn't he suffer consequences? There's a sequel, and I'm guessing that's from Karen's child's perspective...

It pretty much sucks! (spoilers) April 6 2008
By Liquid Diamonds - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
It started out interesting. I couldn't put it down at first. But it just got silly. I found Zipporah to be a daft, weak main character that just never comes to life at all.
I felt like there was all this build up and the mystery would be solved but it just turned out Karen was crazy?! Ridiculous.
The ending was highly disappointing. I couldn't believe it!
I felt puzzled and like it was unfinished. Loose ends weren't tied up.
I believe the ghostwriter is getting lazy. He's not sticking to the old formula and the books are suffering.
This was the worst book I've read that has the misfortune of having the wonderful V.C.'s name on it.
I really loved the Landry series, the Cutler series, The Logan series, the Hudson series, even the DeBeers books. I love a lot of what the ghostwriter HAS done.
It just seems that his best days are behind him.
It's all crap these days.
Maybe it's time to lay V.C. to rest once and for all.

worst ever Nov. 4 2007
By Robin K - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I love V.C. Andrews, but this book was just the worst. The ghostwriter did absolutely no justice to her. By the second page I knew I wasn't reading her work. The plot itself was good, but the details given to bring it to life were few and far between. The writer did nothing to help you understand where the Karen character was coming from when it was finally revealed she was nothing but a sociopath. The ending was so abrupt I had to check to make sure I didn't skip any pages. What really got to me were all the inconsistencies in the story. Timelines did not unfold correctly; most notably the fact that the family was to take a trip on a saturday when, the tuesday before, the murder happens and by thursday the dad says he should call his mother to explain why they didn't make it on saturday, saturday hadn't even come and gone yet. Whoever proofread the book ought to be fired along with the ghostwriter. I was very dissappointed in this book, and am not sure I even want to read the next in this series.

Dull Oct. 23 2007
By Jenny 8675309 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book was horrible. As a bibliophile, it pains me to say that, but it's the truth. I'm not a book snob, and I know how to appreciate a fun, fluffy read, but the writing in this book made it difficult to stomach. The previous reviewer was correct - the story lacked details, was dull, and really just plodded along. The ONLY reason I finished it was because I can't stand not to finish a book - I am always optimistic that it will somehow improve with the ending. This one did not.

I hate to be negative, but don't waste your time with this one. It's dull.

Been there, Done that Dec 17 2007
By Sophie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
THis book started off interesting, but just left the reader completely dumbfounded at the end. Not only was the main character, Zipporah, a complete fool to almost the end, but the Karen character made absolutely no sense whatsoever. Predictable ending, too. Another beautiful girl goes insane and spends the rest of her life in an institution. Sounds familiar? ( Celeste, Belinda, Laura, Grace)...I think the ghostwriter is going to far. I'm not even looking forward to the next book, which doesn't sound interesting in the least. I borrowed this from someone, and suggest you do the same.

Worst book ever by the ghost writer! Feb. 26 2011
By Christina Darveau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I am a 37yr old well educated woman who was a captured fan of VC Andrews when I was 16 after I read Flowers in the Attic. I have been reading her books ever since even after Mr. Neiderman began writing as her ghost writer. This was his worst yet. I never got a feeling of being drawn into the book. It lacked descriptives.....sometimes never even describing a characters appearance or descriptions of a home etc. I felt like I was left alone in a sense to imagine what they looked like or where they were. The main character was weak who never stood up for herself. I kept waititng for the time in the book where the heroin gets to make sure the villan got what was coming to them. This book had an abrupt and boring ending in which the villan just simply walks down the road....with an ending poorly described in a prologue. I bought this book on my Kindle so I forced myself to read it...but it was painful. I will NOT be buying the sequel book. I hope these reviews force him to write better...because this was terrible.
