Review: The Dark Glamour
The Dark Glamour by Gabriella Pierce
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Dark Glamour is the continuation/sequel, to 666 Park Avenue. Jane and Malcolm are still married though they have separated in hopes that it will be harder for the “bad guys” to find them. Jane has decided to stay in New York and try and make it up to the friends whose lives she has endangered and also to figure out a way to get Lynne Doran, her evil Mother-in-Law, to leave them alone.
While trying to figure out where Malcolm is, Jane discovers a secret that she thinks Lynne would give anything to know. This little tidbit may be her ticket to some peace and quiet…but then that would be too easy, wouldn’t it.
It took me 3 days to read this book. That is highly unusual for me…if I’m enjoying the book it’s done in little more than 24 hours. This one just didn’t “grab” me; on top of that, it moved very slowly. In a word I was BORED! I didn’t really care what happened.
Jane spent way too much time mentally debating EVERYTHING! Not just the big stuff but inconsequential stuff like what shoes to wear. Snooze-ville!
And it was predictable! I knew what was going to happen long before it ever did…with the exception of one event involving Jane’s grandmother at the end of the book.
Overall, the story was pretty good if you could get past the minutiae. Pierce left us hanging, yet again, and I am curious as to how the series will be resolved. I just hope she gets there a lot faster in the next book.
