Decent read, but too long
Reviewed in India on 9 April 2020
Well, the author is capable of some beautiful romantic prose. The love story between two most privileged offspring of the world starts off well enough. It is fun to read about their privileged lives filled with power corridors and secret service secrets, so to speak. The intimacy between siblings and friends is evocatively described and may be the real saving grace of this book, which should have ended 100 pages earlier. I would have skimmed over easily 60 pages plus, still really did not miss much.
