4.5 FANTASTIC ! NickyJJ | 30/05/2013 | See all NickyJJ's reviews (10) I read this book many years ago but it is still my favourite, and I have just read it again and loved it just as much. Virginia Andrews was an amazing author, there hasn't been anyone who has even come close to her talent since. Her books are so well written, you get completely lost in her stories and can picture all the characters. Such a loss to the literary world when she passed away many years ago.
