Kurzzusammenfassung:

Amerika, Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts. Fanny Broadmoor verliert bereits bei ihrer Geburt ihre Mutter und später auch noch ihren Vater, sodass sie bei ihren äußerst wohlhabenden Großeltern aufwächst. Als sie mit 17 Jahren nach ihrer Großmutter auch noch ihren Großvater verliert, muss sie nicht nur mit dem Verlust fertig werden, sondern sich auch der Tatsache stellen, dass der Rest der Broadmoor-Familie ihr bis auf wenige Ausnahmen nicht das ihr zugedachte Erbe gönnt, das sie antreten darf, sobald sie volljährig ist. Besonders einer ihrer Onkel lässt nichts unversucht, um sich Fannys Anteil des Erbes unter den Nagel zu reißen.

Trost findet sie bei ihren Cousinen Sophie und Amanda, die allerdings auch unterschiedlicher nicht sein könnten und sich regelmäßig deshalb in die Haare bekommen. Alle drei sind im selben Alter und auf der Suche nach dem Sinn ihres Lebens und der großen Liebe. Fanny glaubt, sie bereits gefunden zu haben – in Michael, ihrem Jugendfreund auf Thousand Islands, dem Feriendomizil der Broadmoors. Allerdings ist er der Sohn von Bediensteten und wäre in den Augen ihres Onkels keine angemessene Partie. Da jedoch ergibt sich für Michael eine Möglichkeit, in kurzer Zeit zu Wohlstand zu kommen …

Meine Meinung:

Dies war der erste Roman, den ich von Tracie Peterson gelesen habe, und fast hätte ich ihn gar nicht beendet. Lange Zeit wurde ich mit den Figuren überhaupt nicht warm, die Geschichte zog sich unendlich in die Länge, es wollte einfach keine Spannung aufkommen, der christliche Glaube wurde kaum thematisiert.

Don't expect an ending to this story.... 5. November 2008
Von Janine - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I love Tracie Peterson and she writes well, BUT. Let's have an ending. I have read the first 2 books in this series (I only skimmed the second) and still Franny has not had an ending to her story. Perhaps others like for the plot to continue through several books but I like to have a conclusion. I love series where the characters trade the lead in the story but don't force me to buy the next book in order to see how the story ends.

Abrupt ending, one dimensional characters, no growth/progression, all around terrible 12. September 2011
Von Adrienne - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Let me just preface this review with this: I read trashy romance novels and badly written fanfiction all the time. I have low standards and even lower expectations! But based on the reviews of this book, good lord, I thought I'd be reading something that would at least deserve three stars. But this was legitimately TERRIBLE.

Also: SPOILER ALERTS!!!!! (all over the place)

I remember getting 25% into this book and thinking, "In the name of all things shiny and sparkly, WHY HASN'T THE BOOK GONE ANYWHERE?" I'm serious. All you get is the background of the story and then snippets of the characters. Fanny is this weirdly contradictory character. She's all sassy and look-at-me-I'm-rebelling-against-society-because-I-like-fishing!!!!!, and everyone keeps going on and ON about how smart she is, and she has semi-smart moments of, "Hmmm, that's odd..." when something is fishy, but she does nothing. Seriously, it takes her a mention of her boyfriend (let's just get this out of the way: NOTHING HAPPENS BETWEEN THEM, I mean even their kiss is lame. I realize it's religious fiction, but the build up to their romance was so, so, SO slow and the way it was finally realized between the two characters was just incredibly unsatisfactory!)--a mention of her boyfriend and she becomes a world class ditz. Then, oh good LORD, all she talks about is how ugly she is compared to her cousins (there's another topic to discuss!!) and I swear, fifty of the pages is devoted to that give or take throughout the WHOLE STINKIN' BOOK.

Let's just say that to say Fanny completely annoys the shadoodles (see what I did there Amazon? I am cutting out my profanity! all distasteful content!) out of me is an understatement. Her entire existence is WOE IS ME, everyone-I-love-dies!!!!!! and she never shuts up about it, I stg. I really wanted to just reach through the pages and slap her upside the head, Gibbs-style.

Her COUSINS. Oh my giddy aunt. Amanda is your typical bore who has a bizarre spurt of CHARACTER GROWTH!!! out of the blue. She is a petty, whiny, holier-than-thou character that acts as that mother you don't need. In other words, girl is a Mary Sue. No characterization whatsoever, I can't even imagine a whole book about her. Sophie of course has to be the Exact Opposite because that is clearly how character foils work, obviously, and so she is your typical bad girl who oOOooh! sneaks out to go to parties! lets boys take off her shoes! and then of course has a love interest that is basically Amanda in male form for sexual tension!!!!

It is painful to relive this book in my head while thinking about the worst bits to complain about in this review.

I mean, this book is basically the repeat of the first thirty pages, with the additional spice of the most HILARIOUS villain I have ever read. Like, I honestly can't believe he's REAL in a fictional world. He is just... hilarious. He is that villain in TV shows who openly proclaims, "I'M TAKING OVER THE WORLD!" I mean, it is what he does in the book, and everyone around him is too stupid to realize it. The characters are an embarrassment to imaginary human beings. I was expecting some kind of resolution about his idiotic villainous plans, but NOTHING HAPPENS. You're just left going what-the-actual-fiddlesticks-is-this-shrimpfest when the book SUDDENLY ENDS (like in the last ten pages everything FINALLY!!!! comes to head--I'm approximating since this is on the Kindle, but) and NOTHING HAS HAPPENED TO THIS GUY. I mean are you for REAL. IT WAS AWFUL.

It was pretty much the only reason why I kept reading. I was waiting for Fanny to actually BE awesome instead of everyone just saying that she was awesome even though she kept going, nOooo I'm not awesome!!!--and, well, everyone can just be left disappointed because NOTHING HAPPENED and her darling villainous uncle is still cackling away evilly. Seriously, by the end, I'd just given up on finding out if anything does happen to good ol' jolly Uncle Baddy. I really don't want to deal with reading about pansy pants Amanda and bad girl Sophie to find out if even ANYTHING will. IT PROBABLY WON'T, NOTHING HAPPENS IN THIS BOOK ANYWAY.

IN SUMMARY, IT WAS BAD BECAUSE:
The main characters wanted me to poke sporks up their noses. AND NOTHING HAPPENS!!!!!

Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous 1. Januar 2008
Von Deborah - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Fanny Broadmoor is enjoying life on the Thousand Islands on her grandparents estate. She's living a life of luxury along with her cousins Amanda and Sophie. There's also a hint of a forbidden romance with Michael, the family boat keeper. But all that changes when her grandfather dies and Fanny's inheritance is thrown into chaos due to her uncle's greedy control. Will she able to gain control of what is rightfully hers or will her uncle's lecherous ways leave Fanny with nothing to her name?

The writing duo of Peterson and Miller has turned out another historical fiction series. I really liked their other two series about the Lowell mills so I was looking forward to their latest release. I enjoyed reading about what it was like to be in high class society in the 1800s. It was fun reading about living in a rich resort for vacations, going to balls, wearing fancy dresses, having picnics and not having to worry about the outside world. The three Broadmoor cousins are all very interesting because the girls are all different in how they think and act. Fanny is a character where she's very independent in how she acts but because of propriety and deference to her age she has to do what everyone else wants her to do. I didn't particularly enjoy Jonas' character. He seems to be only in it for the money and does despicable things to get it. He doesn't care about his niece's welfare or even his own daughter. It'll be interesting to see what happens to him in future books. Luckily this is the first book in a series because the ending does leave you hanging quite a bit. I'm looking forward to reading about what happens to Fanny and Michael's relationship as well as the adventures of the other Broadmoor cousins. Another fine effort from Peterson and Miller.

Ah, to be a Broadmoor... 5. Januar 2008
Von RKS27 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I was apprehensive when I picked up this book. While I have LOVED Tracie Peterson's books, The Lights of Lowell series (also co-authored by Miller) was truly a chore to get through. I didn't enjoy it at all. So I entered this new world of Upstate New York high society as a very skeptical outsider.

My problem with Lights of Lowell series was the depth of the lead characters. I didn't feel like I KNEW them and, what I did know about them I wasn't too impressed with.

This series, though... I adored the new leading lady, Fanny Broadmoor. She is very much a victim of her family. Her mother dies in childbirth, her father takes his own life because he cannot handle his heartache, and her grandparents (who shared in raising her after her mother's death and fully took over 11 yrs later when her father dies) within years of each other just under a year before she turns 18. The authors let you get to know Fanny in a way that made you love her. You knew her feelings, you knew WHY she felt them... she was a great heroine- both strong and weak, both wise and naive- you BELIEVE that a young lady like this truly existed.

As a beloved Grandaughter treated more as a daughter, she is left her father's third of the vast Broadmoor inheritance leaving her eldest uncle, Jonas, furious and scheming. Her other uncle, Quincy, too preoccupied with this charity doesn't bregrudge his niece but fails to see what his brother is up to.

Fanny is in love with one of the family servants, Michael, who lives on the family island (one of the Thousand Islands). Michael leaves to strike his fortune in order to win approval from her guardian, Uncle Jonas, to marry her. Jonas schemes and schemes different ways to take Fanny's portion and I don't want to spoil the book with details...

Throughtout the novel you read of a close bond between the youngest cousins, Fanny, Amanda, and Sophie. You care about all three of them. I am excited to see how the 2nd book is written. With this book not yet concluded, will Fanny remain the lead? Or will her story become a secondary story while Amanda or Sophie become the star?

This book does not contain the excitement and suspense that I feel when reading Peterson's books. Sure, there is some intrigue, definitely good verses evil- but not sense of adventure I feel when embarking on the journey of her other characters in other books. The Broadmoor world has a different kind of intrigue which certainly drew me in.

What a delightful way to begin a spellbinding saga... In a way this book reminds of of Lori Wicks "The Hawk and the Jewell." Not the story itself (and Fanny is certainly more likeable than Sunny) but the way the lead is simply thrust into a sitution beyond her control... Well done, Ladies. You have written a fine book.

Incredibly dull 3. Oktober 2011
Von morehumanthanhuman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Several things to note about this book:

This is not a series with rotating leads, but rather a series where plot points apparently aren't resolved until the final book. At the end of this book, nothing is established. I felt like I'd just finished 300 pages of background.

The book is deadly dull. Long, boring descriptions and tedious "lighthearted" conversations between the cousins take up a great deal of the book. The authors don't seem to care too much about their plot. Fanny likes Michael, but isn't sure if he likes her back. A few hundred pages in (after pages and pages of brooding and detailed conversations with her cousins), she asks him if he does, and he tells her so. You're not exactly in the hands of master storytellers here.

The Christianity seems really tacked on. The way to tell a Christian from a non-Christian is that Christians will say things like "Well, we should trust God" or look around when they're outside and think "This is a wonderful world that God has made." In terms of seeing it impact their lives and decision making . . . It doesn't. In fact, one of the key messages of the book is that it is good to care about the poor -- just don't care too much, because that's bad (caring "too much" would seem to be anything that impacts your life, the life of your family, or your precious standard of living).

The characters are laughable stereotypes. Jonas is such an one-dimensionally evil character -- I kept expecting him to announce his plan to tie Fanny to the railroad tracks to get her fortune. His interior monologue is ridiculously unrealistic.

But really, all you need to know is that this book is incredibly, amazingly, almost unfathomably dull. The least I expected was to have plot points resolved, but even that simple pleasure is denied you by these authors. I wouldn't recommend this book to anybody.
