Produktbeschreibungen

From Publishers Weekly

During a college party gone awry, vibrant but physically fragile Emily Parish, ringleader and emotional pivot of a group of female friends self-christened the Fabulous Four, falls to her death from their sorority house roof. Traumatized, the remaining three go their separate ways and lead outwardly successful yet personally problematic lives. Then 10 years later, a mysterious, pseudonymous author publishes a bestselling novel packed with intimate details about the thinly disguised Fab Four—and accusing one of them, Dr. Natalie Bishop, whose own memories of the tragic night are a blank, of murdering Emily. As Natalie delves into the past to save her reputation and career, she not only rediscovers her old gang (including Emily's brother Cole, an ex-boyfriend who'd always blamed Natalie for his sister's death) but, gradually, disquietingly, realizes that all had motives for murder. Unfortunately, the real killer's character gets short shrift, making the book less than compelling as a mystery. Still, Rita Award–winner Freethy (Summer Secrets, etc.) succeeds in developing a suitably eerie atmosphere that doesn't eclipse the story's main focus on the renewal of fabulous friendships and romances.

Kurzbeschreibung

From #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Barbara Freethy comes a romantic and suspenseful story of three best friends and a terrible, life-changing secret.

Emily was their closest friend, or so they thought -- until years later, when her secrets send them on a perilous search for the truth about who she really was ... and why she died ...

Ten years ago, during a party gone out of control, beautiful, vibrant Emily plummeted to her death, leaving her three best friends and sorority sisters -- Natalie, Laura and Madison -- devastated. None of them has ever forgotten that night, or the role each may have played in Emily's death, the guilt that has pursued them, and the loss they still suffer.

Now an unknown writer has rocketed onto bestseller lists with a novel that eerily mirrors their own story. Who is he? How does he know the intimate details of their lives? And why is he accusing one of them of murder? As they begin to unravel the startling truth about their friend, each will rediscover a love she lost long ago and uncover secrets that will forever change her life...

Reviews...

"Three friends reunited to uncover a haunting mystery -- I couldn't put it down." Luanne Rice.

"ALL SHE EVER WANTED is a gripping tale of romantic suspense, but it's also a story of friendships, betrayal, love, heartache, and second chances. It's the story of four young women on the brink of adulthood, full of dreams and expectations, and the tragic event that changed their lives in ways none of them could have foreseen. But even though a tragedy is the basis of the book, it is an uplifting and hopeful tale."

"Barbara Freethy is a master storyteller with a gift for characterization, and in ALL SHE EVER WANTED, she gives readers seven intriguing characters. In order to discover what happened, Natalie, Cole, Madison, Dylan, Laura, and Drew must come to terms with their pasts, and in doing so, they learn a great deal about themselves and each other. Well written and compelling, ALL SHE EVER WANTED is a fascinating blend of romance, mystery, and suspense. Don't miss it!" Susan Lantz, Romance Reviews Today

4 /12 stars - Top Pick of the Month - Romantic Times Magazine - "Freethy's expertly penned novel is a true page-turner."

ALL SHE EVER WANTED by Barbara Freethy

December 11, 2004

Courtesy of WWW.LOVEROMANCES.COM

Three women are reunited, after the publication of a murder novel informs the world about a past they had tried to forget, in ALL SHE EVER WANTED by Barbara Freethy.

Natalie Bishop is currently a resident at San Francisco's St Timothy's Hospital, achieving the goal she had worked for so hard while a student at Santa Cruz University ten years ago. Back in college, she was one of four young women who called themselves the Fabulous Four - Natalie, Laura, Madison, and a fourth girl, Emily. They were part of the same sorority and had banded together as four special friends who were different as night and day, yet they shared a great friendship. Natalie was the studious one, the one that had promised to take care of Emily. Laura was the all-American girl next door. Madison was the ultra-sophisticated girl, who was experienced in more ways than one. And finally, Emily was the glue that held the group together. She was full of life and adventure, but had a number of secrets that she had taken with her when she died. They were as close as sisters, and no one would have guessed that one night their lives would be changed forever, the night when Emily fell to her death from the roof of their building during a party. According to the novel that is penned by a new author named Garrett Malone, Natalie was the one that supposedly pushed Emily to her death.

Natalie learns about the book by accident while on a break at the hospital. The names had been changed, and she panics when she realizes the book is about her, the Fabulous Four, and Emily's accidental death. While Malone may have thought he had disguised the characters in the book, most people recognize who these girls really were. Natalie's career is now on hold, due to the damage the book is doing to the hospital's reputation. And her ex-boyfriend Cole, who was Emily's brother and is now working for the family newspaper, the San Francisco Tribune, finds himself in a situation where he tries to defend Natalie's innocence, which angers his parents who believe that Natalie did indeed kill Emily. His loyalties are torn, and he also realizes that he has never gotten over Natalie, the girl that broke his heart.

Laura and Natalie reunite to solve the mystery of the book, to find out who Garrett Malone really is, and to discover what really happened that fateful night. Madison does her own investigative work, trying to find out if there is any truth to the novel that is making front-page news. It's been years since they have all been together, but the novel that should never have been written is uncovering skeletons from their past and forcing them together again. Although they had missed the camaraderie of their college years, each of them secretly suspects the other in pushing Emily off the roof that night. With the help of Cole and a few others from their past, they solve the mystery of Garrett Malone, as well as uncover the story of Emily's death.

Freethy had this reviewer guessing until the very end as to who killed Emily, and at one point it almost seemed obvious as to whom the murderer was. Freethy did a good job with adding plot twists here and there to confuse the reader, keeping one in suspense until the very end. This reviewer feels that the author was quite successful with this romantic suspense novel, using Natalie and Cole as the star-crossed lovers who try to convince themselves that they no longer love each other. The romance was not too overwhelming to detract from the mystery that needed to be solved, and the characters all felt believable and logically written. A surprise ending, at least for this reviewer, may catch other readers off guard as well, and kudos to Freethy for achieving that shocking finish. The book was fast paced and judging by how fast this reviewer read the book, it was definitely one that was hard to put down. ALL SHE EVER WANTED was a well-done romantic suspense novel, and it is not always that an author can get it "just right". This novel is highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I couldn't put the book down! 12. März 2005
Von Elisabeth M. Saada - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is the first book I have read from Barbara Freethy and I am hooked! I couldn't put All She Ever Wanted down! In this mystery romance novel, Barbara Freethy keeps you in suspense until the very end. Ten years after the fact, three sorority sisters find themselves involved in figuring out how and why their sorority sister, Emily, fell to her death. Was it an accident or a murder? Did one of the sorority sisters commit murder? It is a story of twists and turns that will keep you turning the pages! The romantic aspects are handled very well and never get syrupy. Romance, suspense, believable characters, and enough plot twists to keep you guessing make for an interesting and entertaining story. I highly recommend this book.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Maintains suspense right until the end 2. Juni 2005
Von Tracy Vest - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
An unknown novelist describes an event from the past that four sorority sisters from Santa Clara University. Each of the three surviving sisters has moved on to another chapter in their lives and would rather forget the events that led to the tragic death of golden girl, Emily.

Her former roommate and best friend, Natalie bears the brunt of accusations, as the story takes both fact and fiction and concludes that she is a murderer. A chance meeting with her former flame, Cole (who also happens to be Emily's brother), has the two reluctantly joining forces to get to the bottom of the mystery and meet the elusive writer, which only opens even deeper wounds, and causes them to examine their still smoldering feelings for each other.

Freethy does a great job of maintaining the suspense and tossing around several red herrings until the actual circumstances of Emily's death are revealed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Author Who is a Great Storyteller 2. Januar 2012
Von Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Barbara Freethy is a best selling author who was already published before she self-published this ebook. You might wonder why an author signed to a large publishing house would choose to self publish. I don't know much about the publishing business other than the well known fact that it has currently undergone a paradigm shift. Maybe this alone explains why this ebook wound up being self published.

I believed this book to be a romance category ebook, but the romance isn't the central part of the story. Instead the book is much more of a plot driven book, with the mystery of the accidental death of a young college student, Emily Parish, at the heart of the story.

This story succeeds in many ways. First and foremost it captures a reader's attention from page one, when we find out that a best selling book has been written which very thinly disguises the main characters and suggests that Emily Parish did not die accidentally, but was murdered. From the beginning the author pulls us along as she reveals small pieces of the puzzle that leave us wanting to know more.

Natalie is a doctor in San Francisco, when she suddenly hears about a best selling book that sounds very much like the true story of the tragedy that happened to her and her three best friends ten years ago. The author has changed the names of the main characters but to all the players, it is clear that he had inside information about the events or he could not have written the book. Cole Parish runs the San Francisco Tribune, a paper his prominent and wealthy family owns, and happens to be the brother of the girl who was killed. He doesn't take kindly to the fact that the author suggests that his ex-girlfriend Natalie was the one who murdered his little sister. The search for the truth throws the two star-crossed lovers back together again, which is the romance part of the story.

I read this book in a matter of days, and that's rare for me. I did guess who the murderer was but not until just before it was revealed. For those of you who love romance, there is plenty of that as well. There are two intense sexual scenes which may not be enough for some readers, and far too much for others depending on your taste. I do wish that there had been a little more of a "tender love story", but this is a different book if that's what you want.

All She Ever Wanted was expertly written by a talented author. It's refreshing to see a talented writer like Barbara Freethy choose to self-publish. If we see more of this, it may further upend the publishing industry.

The problem with self-publishing is that anybody can publish, and in my experience so many of the ebooks that are self published are not very good. Rest assured, in this case, you're getting a great ebook.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Tedious and annoying 25. September 2011
Von Buster - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Annoying in the extreme. Why one 20-year old student is to be held responsible for another 20-year old is never really explained in a way that makes it realistic. A romantic suspense story where I wanted the heroine to reject her "true love" with extreme prejudice. The "victim" was completely unsympathetic. Couldn't wait to finish and delete this one from my Kindle.
