REVIEW for Riverside Park

Thank you goes out to the wonderfully funny Adam at Harlequin.

TITLE: Riverside Park

AUTHOR: Laura Van Wormer

GENRE: Fiction

RATING: 2 Stars

I once use to read Van Wormer a long time ago and then I just stopped. I thought I would pick some of her newer books and decided on Riverside Park. My first thought after finishing this one is "WOW" there is a lot of cheating and sex going on in this one - nobody and I do mean nobody seems to be who they are.

This book is loaded with melodrama - showcasing the facade and basically deceit of 4 couples, who should have the world at the feet, but instead seem muddled down with cheating spouses, pregnant children and debts, debts, debts.

I just found this book waayyyy to melodramatic for my taste and was hoping to read an interesting book on people's life - this one felt like a soap opera to me.

Oh man!!!!!
I saw the cover and thought, oh, its gonna be a great book, then scrolled down and saw the 2 stars and said "Oh Man!"
Hmmm, guess you really can't judge a book by its cover.

I don't like a lot of drama either, so I'll skip this one.
