    Description

    The fourth spellbinding book in the epic Clifton Chronicles series

    Be Careful What You Wish For opens with Harry Clifton and his wife, Emma, rushing to hospital to learn the fate of their son, Sebastian, who has been involved in a fatal car accident. But who died, Sebastian or his best friend Bruno?

    When Ross Buchanan is forced to resign as chairman of the Barrington Shipping Company, Emma Clifton wants to replace him. But Don Pedro Martinez intends to install his puppet, the egregious Major Alex Fisher, in order to destroy the Barrington family firm just as the company plans to build its new luxury liner, the MV Buckingham. Back in London, Harry and Emma's adopted daughter wins a scholarship to the Slade Academy of Art where she falls in love with a fellow student, Clive Bingham, who asks her to marry him. Both families are delighted until Priscilla Bingham, Jessica's future mother-in-law, has a visit from an old friend, Lady Virginia Fenwick, who drops her particular brand of poison into the wedding chalice.

    Then, without warning, Cedric Hardcastle, a bluff Yorkshireman who no one has come across before, takes his place on the board of Barringtons. This causes an upheaval that none of them could have anticipated, and will change the lives of every member of the Clifton and Barrington families. Hardcastle's first decision is who to support to become the next chairman of the board: Emma Clifton or Major Alex Fisher? And with that decision, the story takes yet another twist that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

    OK - But not from the top shelf

    Any additional comments?

    We all know that Archer is a master story teller. However, in this - the fourth in the Clifton Chronicle Series - one has the feeling that he is writing to a pre-ordained master plan and is manipulating plot development to create the outcome that he wants.And so, while there are pleasant twists and turns, this is not a novel that will be talked about in the future as a noteworthy example of the "saga" genre. It is not in the same class as, say, Ken Follett's Century Trilogy.But don't mistake my assessment as intending to dissuade you from listening to the book. It's a great tale, written by an author whose skill is top tier, and will entertain you. It won't - nor is it intended to I think - tax you though. You'll be able to listen to it, and stop listening when it's time to go to bed. In other words, it won't keep you up all night as a compelling must read!

    Number four was ad good as the others

    I particularly enjoyed listening to this book as it was in original language (I heard the first 3 in Italian). Jennings' reading was superbe making all those accents. I loved it.

    An excellent finish.

    You might think that four books into this series of books and the story and characters might be losing their gloss. Well not one bit. Archers is an excellent story teller and his characters, good and bad, remain completely believable.

    One surprise was the fish paste story that didn’t seem to be developed at all. I would have liked it discussed more.

    The final moments of the book really leave you guessing. The end cannot be as simple as we are lead to believe but on the other hand Archer is not afraid of killing off principal characters. I’m sorry for the demise of Jessica. I would like to have seen how her future panned out.

    I’ve already downloaded the fifth book and look forward to starting it later today.

    The narration throughout is first class. The variety of accents and dialects are all very plausibly different.

    Wonderful production values throughout. Gripping plot ... impossible not to be drawn in. Alex Jennings narration is brilliant with an astonishing range of voices and accents.

    Interesting continuation of the Clifton story

    The story still has much interesting parts and new twists. Yet it fails to be anywhere like the first two.

    wishful thinking

    What did you love best about Be Careful What You Wish For?

    the plots and nasty little character with a grudge

    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    it keeps you wondering why you would waste all your money on revenge

    What does Alex Jennings bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    you are well in tune with his characters after the other books in series

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    yes there are a couple of areas that get you no spoilers though
