Savannah. Courtney. Peyton.
The three sisters grew up not knowing their father and not quite catching a break. But it looks like their luck is about to change when they find out the secret identity of their long-lost dad—a billionaire Las Vegas hotel owner who wants them to come live in a gorgeous penthouse hotel suite. Suddenly the Strip's most exclusive clubs are all-access, and with an unlimited credit card each, it should be easier than ever to fit right in. But in a town full of secrets and illusion, fitting in is nothing compared to finding out the truth about their past.
I was really excited that Michelle Madow has come out with a new book! I really enjoyed the books from the Transcend Time series and had high hopes that The Secret Diamond Sisters would be just as amazing. Although I did not enjoy it as much as the Transcend Time series, I still liked it.
Three sisters, Peyton, Courtney, and Savannah, just found out that their dad is one of the richest man and now have to move in with him because their mother had gone to rehab. With a whole new lifestyle and a dazzling new home in Las Vegas, what more could the sisters have asked for?
Peyton is the oldest of the three Diamond sisters and probably the only one who dresses a little differently than her two younger sisters. I kind of understand why she acts out and does things that her father might not approve of, but I think she should be a little grateful as to her current situation. I know money cannot buy anything for her, but she adds a little it of interesting to this book.
Courtney, the middle sister, is the most studious. She is similar to one of those goody two shoes, but not in an annoying way. She seems fortunate, but also does not want to be dependent on the wealth of her father. She is consumed in a forbidden love, but why the heck not? I mean, the boy she likes is all the right for her. She’s my favorite character.
Savannah, the youngest sister, annoys me the most. She kind of flaunts her new lifestyle, but of course, why not since her previous living situation wasn’t that great. She tries to fit in, but the key word here is: try. But trying to fit in is not a crime and that adds to another bit of interest to this book. Her attitude and the way she is perceived in this book just annoys the heck out of me.
My favorite part of the novel is where Peyton heard things her father and her father’s business partner were talking about their partnership. Because her father didn’t seem as much active in their life after moving to Las Vegas, what his father did when Peyton confronted him, made me go, “Aww…”
Overall, the book is interesting and I think it could have some potential. It was worth my time reading this novel and I’m hoping the next book in the series will get better and draw me in more.
