All That Glitters Landry #3 Driven from the Dumas Mansion back to her beloved bayou Ruby's only hope is that fate will let her begin anew Living again in a humble shack Ruby is determined to make a secure and happy home for her precious infant daughter Pearl Paul Tate her first love whom she was forced to abandon is at her side once now a man of dazzling wealth When he whisks her into his grand house it seems their future is assured As mistress of Cypress Woods Ruby can forget even the shocking reason she and Paul must wed in a secret ceremony and remain husband and wife in name alone But the thick expensive walls of Cypress Woods cannot shut out the terrible memories that have woven their fabric over her destiny or the cold eyes of Paul's mother Gladys reminding Ruby of the secret she must keep to give Pearl a loving father Then her venomous twin sister Gisselle arrives to taunt her with news of Beau Andreas the true father Pearl has never met and the only man Ruby will ever long for with all her body and soul Desperate to find the complete fulfilling life she craves Ruby builds a precarious new existence a flimsy shanty of hope that the first flood washes away Only when the storm exposes the very blackest evils of the past will she glimpse the rainbow's fragile promise a morning of sunshine and laughter with a family of her own best book in this particular saga I preferred Paul over Beau from day one so naturally I had issues with this book Ruby turned into her sister as much as she would like to deny it She should never have swapped with her Sick sister and taken advantage of Giselle like that She didn't even feel sad for Giselle dying it was like she was just some doppleganger in the end Lost all respect for Ruby she was everything the author swore she wasn't WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD I am giving this one an extra star than it deserves simply because of the sheer entertainment value All That Glitters is the third book in the Landry Saga By now we're firmly entrenched in silly soap like shenanigans Ruby is married to her half brother Paul Giselle is still a bitch and is now married to Beau and Daphne conveniently falls off a horse and dies so we don't have to worry too much about her any The first half of the novel builds up to an affair between Ruby and Beau why on earth she would want him back after he ditched her when she got pregnant and then married her sister is anyone's guess but whatever and then the pair try to work out a way that they can be together forever obviously divorce or elopement isn't an option here they have no idea what is to be done and then Hey Presto Giselle contracts a deadly disease She and Ruby trade places everyone thinks that Ruby is dead and the real Ruby can return to New Orleans with Beau and pretend to be Giselle And then Paul goes mad with grief believing that his wifesister is dead and drowns And if that wasn't bad enough Paul's mother wants custody of Ruby's child Actually I don't really blame the formidable Gladys Tate for this For one at this point she doesn't know that Giselle is actually Ruby And for another why would anyone trust an irresponsible prick who never wanted his child before now anyway and an unstable spoiled brat like Giselle to look after a child This is a child for heaven's sake But needless to say there is a court trial Ruby reveals her true identity wins Pearl back and they all live happily ever afterAs I stated before this book has some great entertainment value It's stilly unbelievable and unpredictable but it is still a damn sight entertaining than some of the later VC Andrews novels that would follow Contains SpoilersDid you ever watch Days of Our Lives in the early 90's? If you did you'll know what I'm talking about if you didn't that's okay too this will still make sense The plot lines in this are so ridiculous they are reminiscent of Stefano kidnapping Marlena and keeping her in a giant bird cage yes they are that ridiculous Ruby goes back to the Bayou to have her baby Pearl and her half brother is still in love with her even though he knows they are half siblings She agrees to marry him so that he can take care of them since he is a rich oil tycoon now My uestion is why does she have to marry him? Why can't they just live together as brother and sister Makes no senseThen her twin sister falls sick and Beau comes up with a plan to switch identities so that Beau and Ruby can be back together again Seriously? Why is this even a thing? Of course the truth comes out in the end because her half brother's mom fights for custody of her baby even though she has no blood relation and all the family secrets come out in court Talk about a soap operaI will say though as ridiculous as VC Andrews gets I can't help but devour the books The story kept me turning the pages and wanting It's so trashy yet it's so good
