Two brothers. Two rivals. One devastating family secret.Victoria Fox has done it again, another highly entertaining read. Glittering Fortunes is the story of two brothers, Charlie and Cato Lomax. Charlie has been running the beautiful Usherwood estate whilst Cato has been living it up as a Hollywood movie star. But Cato is back now and ready to claim his birthright.
Charlie Lomax hasn't seen his brother in years. Cato's been too busy living the A-list Hollywood dream to bother with a small Cornish town. But now he's back. Hollywood and British aristocracy are about to clash as Cato sets out to claim the Lomax legacy he believes is his birthright.
Unsuspecting Olivia needs a job after spectacularly failing to make a life for herself in London. Forced back to Cornwall she has no idea what she's letting herself in for by becoming a gardener at the crumbling but beautiful Usherwood estate.
She certainly didn't bargain on becoming embroiled in the biggest scandal of the year, and not least because the brooding Charlie is a man she can't seem to stay away from...
Olivia has just arrived back in Cornwall after trying her luck in London. She takes a job at Usherwood just as Cato arrives back but it is Charlie who she can't take her eyes off.
I really enjoyed Glittering Fortunes, the conflict between Cato and Charlie added another dimension which made the story more interesting. I would have liked a little more interaction between Charlie and Olivia as they were my favourite characters.
Victoria Fox is so good at writing in this genre. Her books offer a little bit of escapism with plenty of scandal and intrigue, highly recommended.
