Publisher Description

“Brenda Janowitz writes with extraordinary humor and heart.” —JANE GREEN, New York Times bestselling author

Three siblings. A priceless family ring. One legendary love story.

In 1978, Lizzie Morgan and Ritchie Schneider embark on a whirlwind romance on the bright beaches and glamorous yachts of Long Island. Over the years, their relationship has its share of ups and downs, including a nine-month hiatus that ends with a stunning eleven-carat ring—one that looks just like the diamond Richard Burton gifted Liz Taylor after their own separation. Like the famous couple, despite the drama that would unfold throughout the Schneiders’ marriage, the ring would be there as a symbol of their love…until it wasn't.

Decades later, when the lost ring unexpectedly resurfaces, the Schneiders’ three children gather under one roof for the first time in years, eager to get their hands on this beloved, expensive reminder of their departed parents. But determining the fate of the heirloom is no simple task, unearthing old wounds and heartaches the siblings can't ignore. And when the ring reveals a secret that challenges everything they thought they knew about their parents’ epic love story, they’ll have to decide whether to move forward as a family or let the ring break them once and for all.

THE LIZ TAYLOR RING is an entertaining read. I found the book to be well-written with believable sibling relationships and an interesting mystery surrounding the ring itself.

Disclosure: I received a free, uncorrected proof of this book.

The Liz Taylor Diamond

Very boring and disappointing. Really didn’t like any of the characters. Too much back and forth but not really going anywhere. Skip this one.

Romance, family drama and a magical ring!!

The moment I saw the beautiful cover and romantic title, I knew I had to read “The Liz Taylor Ring.” She led such a glamorous life with her many handsome husbands and her wonderful movie roles, that I could see why Lizzie Morgan wanted to fashion herself after her. Ritchie Schneider certainly swept Lizzie off her feet with his good looks and his smooth talking personality. Their courtship was very romantic even though Lizzie was going against her parents wishes by dating Ritchie. Did Lizzie have her head in the clouds when it came to Ritchie or was theirs just a beautiful love story?

Their romance set the stage for the amazing book by Brenda Janowitz, who takes us back to the past so we can understand how the reappearance of the ring affected LIzzie and Ritchie’s children in the present. I found it hilarious that the Schneider siblings all had differing accounts as to whether the ring was lost, stolen or gambled away. They were tasked with deciding what to do with the ring now that it was back in their possession. One was obsessed with it, another refused to take it off and Addy, the oldest daughter, was just trying to keep the peace.

The ring is the real story; what it represents, where it came from and what happened to it throughout the course of the book. Why did it take on a life of its own and was there really more than one true story about the ring? The trial and tribulations of the Schneider family and the mysterious ring were funny, emotional and very entertaining. This book is filled with family drama, childhood memories and recollections of days gone by, and it is one I will definitely enjoy reading again!
