I read positive reviews before buying this book... and I was disappointed!! I'm a HUGE Sheldon fan and mourned his passing, so was really excited when someone picked up his torch. This new writer took whole paragraphs to do what Sheldon could do in one sentence. And while it was fun to hear what happened to those bad, bad Blackwells - since Master is probably my favorite Sheldon novel - this new writer even screwed up some facts from the original novel!! (Not huge errors, but certainly obvious to REAL Sheldon fans. I won't be buying another Sheldon book--the new writer isn't even CLOSE to being the Master!! Sheldon must be rolling over in his grave...

As a fan of Sidney Sheldon, I even own several of the movies made from his books, I feel the author of this book should have left Master Of The Game alone. For me this book fell flat because the author tried to make Gabe, the new Jamie McGregor and Lexi, the new Kate. From the incest to the poorly constructed sequences, I felt embarassed that something with Sidney Sheldon's name on the cover could come out so convoluted. I tried hard to like this book. But, you can't duplicate the mastery and art that Sheldon told his stories with. With this author, I don't know why she even tried.

This book definitely held my interest. However, I found the ending to be quite disappointing. I don't know if it was left that way to set it up for another book or what but I just didn't like feeling like the villain won.

Sidney Sheldons's Mistress Of The Game by Tilly BagshawePublished by Harper CollinsISBN 978-0-06-172839-6At the request of Bestsellersworld, a PB was sent, at no cost to me, for my honest opinion.Review format at the request of Bestsellersworld.Matriarch, Kate Blackwell owner of Kruger-Brent, LTD an international multibillion dollar company, has died. Family members gather and attend the funeral but most of them are not in mourning, they are happy that she is no longer alive. And those members of this family have only one thought and that is who will be taking over as CEO of the company. In her will she named Alexandra, her granddaughter, to be her successor but Eve, Alexandra's twin will fight to take over even though Kate was adamant that she have nothing to do with Kruger-Brent. Eve plans to change that. Fortunately for Eve, her twin dies during childbirth, and thus starts the fight for control. She feels that "her" company was stolen from her, since Alexandra's children are next in line according to the will. Eve, once a beautiful woman, lives as a recluse because her plastic surgeon husband, Keith Webster, has taken her beauty away, during a procedure knowing this is the only way he can be sure she won't leave him. Eve, a very bitter and vengeful person, grooms her son for the takeover even if it means murder. The Blackwell family are like royalty, one of the richest families that there is but along with those riches come unthinkable terror. Lexi Templeton, daughter of Alexandra who died during childbirth, is kidnapped at the age of eight (8). Lexi is rescued but the horror she endured molds her life. This is a story of the Blackwell great grandchildren, the rich and famous, and fighting for control to become the next CEO. Along with the lavish lifestyle, this is a family of secrets, lies, betrayals, treachery, devious plotting and murder. Who will win? Who will take control? There is only one winner!!!

The sequel to "Master of the Game". The continuing story of The Blackwell Family, considered American royalty, one generation later. The time has come for a new family member to become head of the family business, turned empire, Kruger-Brent. Lexi Templeton is a ruthless, cunning beauty who's desire, turned obsession, is to follow in her great grandmother's footsteps. She lives and breathes for her one true love, Kruger-Brent. Max Webster, Lexi's cousin, will stop at nothing to make Kruger-Brent his and in return earn the ultimate love of his mother. The two become entangled in a game where there is no mercy and only the winner will be left standing. Gabe McGreggor, a little known descendant, is fighting his own battle to overcome the hatred of his family towards the Blackwells and to create his own fortune. Only to find himself being pulled head first deep down into the abyss that is Kruger-Brent. Deliciously entertaining characters forged into a game of manipulation. A brilliant plot full of twists evoking a love/hate relationship with the Blackwell family.

I love Sheldon's books but this one, by Tilly, was hard to follow. It jumped without warning but after I finished reading it was thought provoking... the book was left with a lot of unanswered questions.

As always Sidney Sheldon has spun an unbelievable tale about the Blackwell family legacy. I was sucked in immediately and couldn't wait to find out what happened. Sheldon is definitely my favorite author!

I'm confused about the ending and a few of the main characters from "Master"  did not even make it into this book.  I was a little disappointed quite honestly

This was an awful book. I hated all the main characters and if there was a glimmer of goodness in anyone, the author made sure that didn't last. I always enjoyed Sidney Sheldon's books, but this one written by Tilly Bagshawe is not even close. Awful! Awful! Awful!

I picked this book up and found that I could not put it down. Though I am a die hard Sidney Sheldon fan Tilly did an awesome job. My only pive is that it left me hanging in the end. I am hoping that there will be a continuation to this great tale. In true style of my favorite author I give her kudles and hope that I dont have to wait long for the final end to this saga.

But not a super page turner like Master of The Game was. Worth the read, though.
