The Plot :
Sidney Sheldon’s Mistress Of The Game is a sequel to Sidney Sheldon’s Master Of The Game by Tilly Bagshawe. It continues to story of Blackwell family 2 generations later. In Master of the Game we saw Kate Blackwell at her ninetieth birthday. At that point she had two granddaughters, twins, Alexandria and Eve. This book is all about the conflict between them carried out by their children.
The story starts with Lexi Templeton, the great granddaughter of Kate Blackwell, on her wedding day, troubled by thoughts of a threatening letter she received. It then goes back to two years after the previous book ended. At ninety two, Kate Blackwell has died and the granddaughters Alexandria and Eve are both pregnant. Eve is the ruthless of the twins, married to Keith and accustomed to life hiding behind a veil after her husband ruined her cosmetic surgery in order to make sure that she never leaves him. She has become resentful and has plans to take revenge and take over the wealthy family business, Kruger – Brent industries. Alexandria, the kinder of the twins is married to Peter and has a son, Robert, who Kate Blackwell wanted to take hand over the family business to.
Soon Alexandria, gives birth to Lexi and dies in child birth. Her husband is overcome with depression and distances himself from his children. Eve gives birth to Max. The two of them have very different upbringings. Lexi is taught to be nice and kind to people and is loved by everyone. Max on the other hand is always taught to be ruthless and hate everyone in his way to taking over the family business. In a freak accident Lexi loses her hearing, gaining sympathy from all. Max on the other hand is starved for affection and approval from his mother and executes a plan to kill his father to please her.
Now the three great grandchildren of Kate Blackwell all own equal shares of the company. Robert is uninterested in the company and readily signs over his shares to his sister Lexi. Here starts a convoluted battle for the family business between Lexi and Max.
I loved this book for its break neck pace and nail biting finish. It is full of plots and plans that members of a family hatch against each other to gain complete ownership of the family business. The story is amazing with vivid characterization and overall makes for an amazing read. Highly recommended read!
