The glittering fortunes of the Massot family, vastly wealthy owners of one of the last great aristocratic jewellery firms in Paris, were plunged into confusion seven years ago by the disappearance of Pierre Massot, the family's charismatic head. Now, his beautiful young wife, Sophie, has decided that the family and the firm must move on to survive. But some people have other ideas.

Publisher's Summary

The glittering fortunes of the Massot family, vastly wealthy owners of one of the last great aristocratic jewellery firms in Paris, were plunged into confusion seven years ago by the disappearance of Pierre Massot, the family's charismatic head. Now, his beautiful young wife, Sophie, has decided that the family and the firm must move on to survive. But some people have other ideas. A trail of scandal is waiting to be uncovered, one that could rip the Massots' carefully constructed world to shreds.

Sweeping from the elegant salons of Paris to the bleak mines of Communist-era Russia and on to the glittering showbiz lifestyle of modern L.A., Sparkles is a sizzling story of ambition, passion, and betrayal.

    "Clever plot twists kept me entertained."

    I really enjoyed this book. At first, I did not think it would keep me interested, but the plot developed fast, with constant twists and turns to a final climax that pulled all the loose ends together. Very well written and read.

    "A little dull."

    Was an okay book but a little twee and drawn out. Sophie is quite irritating in that she's too nice, wasn't a particularly believable book. In her situation I think most women would not have been quite so gracious.
