I can confirm it: good things do come in threes. That’s how many tries it took me to read Penny Vincenzi’s first big-ass book OLD SINS. Not that it wasn’t compelling the first time. This multi-layered saga of a handsome tycoon and the many women that surround him over the years is a page-turner from the get-go. The thing is, I rarely invest in lengthy novels these days, since I tend to get bored very easily. Ask the many novels in my house, and they’ll tell you: this guy has unfinished business with many best-sellers. I’m not proud of it, but that’s the way I am. So imagine how surprised I was when I decided to give Penny’s baby one last chance. I say last, because I figured it was then or never. If I couldn’t go all the way, I was definitely done for good.
Until next post—Martin
