I can confirm it: good things do come in threes. That’s how many tries it took me to read Penny Vincenzi’s first opus 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
