To be honest I had some issues with this book, but I did finish it.
- The introductory paragraphs, I found very confusing and didn’t get what was happening until a few pages in.
- Tarin. You don’t take people onto your Board without thoroughly checking them out. You need to have them recommended or vetted in some way. Their word is not just enough. You would look into their work history, their financial records etc.
- To list on the stock exchange – ie going from being private to a public company with open purchasing of shares etc., you need to have an investment banker to do the work for you. there is no mention of that in the story. They undertake Due Diligence of the numbers and people involved – ie Tarin again.
- Lucas was too obvious as the person with the flowers and the letters right form the start. He was creepy and too interested in them. I would have sacked him as soon as I finished my affair with him, as it clearly wouldn’t work him still being in such a prime role and doing a rubbish job. he should have followed up with the florists etc etc
- I also found Larkin to be 2-dimensional. She never gelled for me as a person.
- The IT manager was way out of line and should have been sacked. Larkin’s response was feeble and would have been seen as that by him and his staff.
- The IT manager would never stoop to learning a new language for a project. He would either send one of the staff on a course, or hired in a specialist. (I’ve worked in IT).
- And finally. Her father. Any father who comes in 2 days after I have been nearly burnt to death asking for my will would get cut out of my life completely. His excuse was pathetic and not acceptable. This didn’t ring true for Larkin to forgive him.
So having listed all the above. I’m now downgrading my stars to 2. I did finish the book.
