ABOUT SHE REGRETS NOTHING
In the tradition of The Emperor’s Children and The House of Mirth, the forgotten granddaughter of one of New York’s wealthiest men is reunited with her family just as she comes of age—and once she’s had a glimpse of their glittering world, she refuses to let it go without a fight.
When Laila Lawrence becomes an orphan at twenty-three, the sudden loss unexpectedly introduces her to three glamorous cousins from New York who show up unannounced at her mother’s funeral. The three siblings are scions of the wealthy family from which Laila’s father had been estranged long before his own untimely demise ten years before.
Two years later, Laila has left behind her quiet life in Grosse Point, Michigan to move to New York City, landing her smack in the middle of her cousins’ decadent world. As the truth about why Laila’s parents became estranged from the family patriarch becomes clear, Laila grows ever more resolved to claim what’s rightfully hers. Caught between longing for the love of her family and her relentless pursuit of the lifestyle she feels she was unfairly denied, Laila finds herself reawakening a long dead family scandal—not to mention setting off several new ones—as she becomes further enmeshed in the lives and love affairs of her cousins. But will Laila ever, truly, belong in their world? Sly and sexy, SHE REGRETS NOTHING is a sharply observed and utterly seductive tale about family, fortune, and fate—and the dark side of wealth.
Holy cow! SHE REGRETS NOTHING is filled with family drama at its finest! Once I started reading, it was very hard to put down. The twists and turns kept me reading late into the night and I had to know what was going to happen. Laila has just lost her mom and her dad has already passed. She is truly alone. Then she learns she has cousins in New York City who are very very rich. Two years later, Laila finds herself going to live with those cousins and her life takes a wicked and crazy turn. She goes from almost homeless to wanting for nothing. As family secrets are learned, Laila decides to get what is due to her.
Just how far will Laila go to become part of this family? Is there anything she won’t do? I really disliked most of her family. They were snobby and Laila never really felt like she fit in with them. You won’t believe how far Laila will go to try and fit in and get what she thinks she deserves. Once the family secrets start coming to light, readers won’t believe how shallow people can be. SHE REGRETS NOTHING pulls the reader right in and when tragedy strikes, you won’t believe the direction the story goes to. I have never read Andrea Dunlop before but after reading this dazzling story, it surely won’t be my last time. I’m going to keep my review short as I’m afraid I’m going to give something away.
