BOOK REVIEW...The Heiresses #1 by Allison Rushby

Three triplets—sisters estranged since birth—are thrust together in glittering 1926 London to fight for their inheritance, only to learn they can’t trust anyone—least of all each other.

When three teenage girls, Thalia, Erato and Clio, are summoned to the excitement of fast-paced London—a frivolous, heady city full of bright young things—by Hestia, an aunt they never knew they had, they are shocked to learn they are triplets and the rightful heiresses to their deceased mother's fortune. All they need to do is find a way to claim the fortune from their greedy half-brother, Charles. But with the odds stacked against them, coming together as sisters may be harder than they think.

The first in its series, "The Heiresses" tells the tale of three very different girls who find out that they in fact are sisters. Now learning of their birth, they find out that they are entitled to a huge inheritance but there's another who would like to get his hands on the family fortune as well. How will it all end for them.

"The Heiresses" was short and okay read for me. I liked the the individual personalities of the sisters but the storyline was a tad subdued and boring for me.

I thought that the pace could have moved a little faster and the plot could have gone in a little different direction at times.

Over all though, nice read.

My Rating:

-Overall : 7
-Plot : 7
-Writing : 8
-Characters : 8
-Cover : 8
