There is no "There", "There".
I believe that I have read all of the Stone Barrington novels. I find the books to be fun and a great way to pass the time.
I recently read the recent novel, "Sex, Lies and Serious Money" and I can't figure out why the book was written or published. The book essentially give us a glimpse into what the author, Mr. Woods might do should he stumble into a fortune but the book lacked any interesting plot or character development of any type.
What Mr. Woods has offered the reader here is essentially an extended product placement for Ralph Lauren, Baker furniture, Bentley, Porsche and Cessna. Mr. Woods also continues to edify Elaine's even though the owner and the restaurant are long deceased.
Mr. Woods also recently offered us the first in what hopefully will not become a new series of novels based on the "Teddy Fay" character that has served as a villian in past Barrington novels. Mr. Fay has however, been recast as a friend and confidant of Barrington's worthy in fact of receiving a Presidential pardon arranged by Barrington, because of their newfound friendship. This "Teddy Fay" book was actually more of a Stone,arrington story than a Teddy Fay story so I do not understand why it was even called a "Teddy Fay" novel.
While I have always felt that the stories have been fun, Mr. Woods inability to consistently deliver solid well thought out endings to some of the Barrington series of books, this book shows a troubling inability to create a storyline of any merit at all. By the way, the ending of the current book is deplorable as well.
I am sad to say this but perhaps it is time for Mr. Woods to let the Barrington character have some time off or let him walk off into the sunset. This book is not worth wasting your time for and you will not feel that it was, in any way, worth your valuable time.
