The Invitation Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
In Gilded Age New York, money buys everything. What is your price? From the best-selling author of Tuscan Rose comes a mesmerising tale of two sisters and the dangers and seductions of excess.
Sometimes the ties that bind are the most dangerous of all....
Paris, 1899. Emma Lacasse has been estranged from her older sister for nearly 20 years, since Caroline married a wealthy American and left France. So when Emma receives a request from Caroline to meet her, she is intrigued. Caroline invites Emma to visit her in New York, on one condition: Emma must tutor her shy, young niece, Isadora, and help her prepare for her society debut.
Caroline lives a life of unimaginable excess and opulence as one of New York's Gilded Age millionaires, and Emma is soon immersed in a world of luxury beyond her wildest dreams - a far cry from her bohemian lifestyle as a harpist and writer with her lover, Claude, in Montmartre.
Emma hopes for an emotional reunion with her only family, but instead she finds herself in the viselike grip of her charismatic and manipulative sister, who revels in the machinations of the ultrarich. As Emma begins to question her sister's true motives, a disaster strikes, and New York society is stripped bare - beneath the glittering exterior lies a seething nest of deceit, betrayal, moral corruption...and perhaps even murder.

I especially loved the "gilded age" timeline. There are so many books set in WWII but no so many in this era. It was so interesting reading and hearing about the poor tenements in perspective to how the rich lived. I Read this in record time. Loved it! Now to search Amazon to see which one of Belinda's books i haven't read. Think Ive read most.
Now the wait for the next one.
