Although I liked the character development, I found the plot either moved way too slowly or jumped ahead too quickly. ( )

WARNING!!!!! 1990's REPRINT: It is very irritating to purchase a book---and this is the more expensive hardcover!!!! --- and then find out it is a reprint. So, beware!

Book description
All that glitters... All that deceives...
From Boston to small town Maine to New York, they shared love affairs, friendships and betrayals...
Hillary Cox--a successful writer, she could not escape her obsession for one man, and all the pain and passion he offered.
John St. George--Not content with his father's fortune in tourmaline mines and a chain of jewelry stores, he wanted his father's young second wife, too.
Pam St. George--Her fathers death left her at her half brothers mercy, and John would rule her like a tyrant and a lover.
Cutter Reid--Transformed from a kid with no future to a man of distinction, he was the object of John's undying hatred, and Pam's tempestuous love.
When John St. George announces his engagement on national TV, Hillary Cox threatens to bring him down in disgrace-while a three decade old family drama of power, duplicity and money is played out to its extraordinary conclusion.

Nothing can prepare writer Hillary Cox for seeing her lover of 20 years, mining magnate John St. George, announce on television that he's marrying another woman. Seeking revenge, Hillary begins a tell-all book exposing John and his shady past. John's sister, Pamela St. George, also wants revenge against her brother. Throughout her life, Pamela has suffered horrifying abuses at John's hands. She sets out to wrest control of the family's tourmaline mining business from him. As Hillary attempts to end her obsession with John, Pamela searches for Cutter Reid, the one man she has always loved, and from whom John has always kept her. Now, a three-decade-old family drama of power, duplicity, and money comes hurtling to an explosive final confrontation with the one man who has so damaged their lives.
