Sins by Penny Jordan

This is what summer holiday reading is all about; something light, yet captivating, a good quick fictional read by well known romance writer Penny Jordan.

Sins is a racier work from Jordan, a story of four main female characters who journey through the decades from the 1950s discovering who they are, where they fit in the world and within their family. Whilst these characters are not always likeable, as a reader I enjoyed getting to know Emerald, Rose, Janey, Ella and discovering their strengths and foibles with them.

The family saga element of this title ensures the author introduces a range of supporting characters and family history, which keeps the story enticing. The publisher compares this work to Penny Vincenzi and Jilly Cooper, however, I found the style reminded me more of the Barbara Taylor Bradford series I've read in the past.

Sins is the second instalment in a three book family saga series, which can be read as an individual story. I started with Sins and was hooked, so will be reserving the next book in this family saga, Scandals due in the library soon.
Silk is the first book in the series and can be reserved for free via the Greater Dandenong Catalogue.
