Jean Stone, the bestselling author of Off Season, weaves the extraordinary story of three cousins bound forever by the family fortune they share–and the family secrets they don’t dare reveal....Mary Beth, Nikki, and Gabrielle have little in common except the vast Atkinson fortune they inherited. Growing up amidst the splendor of Manhattan town houses and summers on Martha’s Vineyard, they’ve all learned the hard way that money can buy everything–except happiness. Marked by a summer tragedy they’ve all tried to forget, each woman has struggled to find her own way to cope with the secrets of her past.Now Mary Beth is a pillar of the New York social scene, buying designer clothing and priceless jewels that even she cannot afford. Nikki searches for peace on the Vineyard, pouring her inheritance into endless charity work. And Gabrielle hoards her money in a Swiss bank account, safe from the husband who knows nothing of her wealth. But when their trusted executor disappears with their money, the cousins come together once again to find him. For each woman, regaining her fortune has a different meaning–and will come at a different price. And in the end they’ll learn that no one’s secrets can stay hidden forever–not even the truth of what really happened that terrible day so many summers ago....
I am a fan of Dominic Dunn, deep character development and biopics about what money does to people. So I am interested in fiction in the same arena. However I didn't finish the book because I got tired of the descriptions of fashion, furnishings ...all the superficial trappings of wealth and by contrast the shallow development of the characters...who had the potential to really be interesting people....even those who were impressed with themselves. I was also looking for the gut-wrenching development of each character's response to the shift in their financial picture...and the somewhat perverse interest in the character of the lawyer's assistant who brings them the news. I'm not sure whether it was the sequence of events that caused me to lose interest but I was disappointed in how the focus on superficial trappings was far more than was necessary to paint the picture. It was like I was in a never-ending party with people I had no interest in talking to or learning about. It was dotted with interesting sketches and It had lots of potential but didn't hold my interest long enough to see it all unfold.
As far as I know, this is my first book by Jean Stone. Trust Fund Babies is a fun read, although I wish she could have gone a little more in-depth with the characters. I thought Mary Beth was the strongest character and that it was amusing to watch her save face amongst all of her rich friends. Nikki was a well written character, and the polar opposite of Mary Beth. I was not crazy about the Gabrielle character. Too soft, too mushy. Too willing to cry foul at her husband, and quickly forgetting all the secrets she kept from him. I know one reviewer mentioned too much sex - well, I hardly read any sex in the book, and what there was was extremely light. It wasn't Nora Roberts type sex, let's just say that. All in all, I liked the book, and I will read more of her's again.
I loved the book. Author brought us in to a world where few of us will ever know. It was great to experince how each of the sisters used their trust fund. It made me try to imagine in my mind what me and my six sisters would do with our lives if we had the oppurtunity. The only thing that I felt made this book not a five star was I think she could have in a gentle way added their sexual experiences but left something for our imaginations. It may be I quit reading scenes in books like that years ago.
I gave it 4 stars not because it was a blockbuster book but because it was an intertaining easy read when you're in the mood for a light read. It's the story of three cousins who lose their trust funds due to the person handling their funds. The story elks how each one deals with this information. Each cousin brings a different prospective dealing with facing the a life without a trust fun.
I wasn't sure how I'd relate to this book because it revolves around people about a decade older than me, but I Loved it! I liked the dynamics between the cousins, and hearing each of their stories/versions of stories and seeing them develop and grow throughout the book. I was a little disappointed when it was over because I wanted to know what happened next. I'd definitely recommend it if you're looking for a fun beach/pool read with a few twists
I really enjoyed this book! Nothing complicated...so if you're looking for something to challenge your mystery solving brain...this isn't quite it...but you'll definitely enjoy it! Once I got started, I couldn't put it down.
This was entertaining, nothing of substance here of course, but a fun little summer read. It's not a story that really draws you in, but you do want to read it enough to see how it all ends.
I really thought this book was a great easy beach read. This was a fun book, great characters, well done storyline. Even with all the characters, the book was easy to follow and the plot was unpredictable!
