1. If Tomorrow Comes (Tracy Whitney, #1)

Set up in the mid-’80s, If tomorrow comes is a story of an ordinary young woman called Tracey Whitney, taking revenge on the underworld mafia who falsely accuses her of the crime she didn’t commit and how it leads her to become world’s best-known con-artist.

2. Tell Me Your Dreams

Tell me your dreams is a story that revolves around 3 woman- Ashley Patterson, Toni Prescott, and Alette Peters. set up in the late ’90s, this novel is about the lives of these three very different women, and throughout the story, it is revealed that they are interconnected in a way no one would ever imagine. The plot is extraordinarily written and narration is effortless. Also, the imagination level of Sheldon is truly surreal! definitely another masterpiece by Sheldon.

3. Sidney Sheldon’s Angel of the Dark

Angel of the Dark is a classic Murder Mystery thriller written by Till Bagshawe from an unpublished material of Sheldon’s private archive which was roughly drafted as Novel 19. This is a fantastically written story that revolves around unearthing the gruesome murder of a father by his son along with other similar murders happening around the globe which is a sure page-turner! From the beginning to the end, the plotline is superbly written and Till never fails us to lose hopes on Sheldon’s work 🙂

My ratings: * * * * 1/2

4. Master of the Game

One of the most loved books of Sidney Sheldon, Master of the Game is a story that revolves around 4 Generations of McGregor/Blackwell family. The novel starts from Jamie McGregor building Kruger-Brent Diamond business and then takes it up to Kate( Jamie’s daughter) on how she makes it a global success. The way Jamie pursuits his search of diamonds and the way he overcomes every obstacle in this path is extraordinarily written. Not to forget, this book also narrates on how desperately Kate struggles in making Kruger-Brent one of the powerful company in yet another true Sheldon style. Big applause to Sheldon and his unimaginable story narration!

5. Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Are You Afraid of the Dark is a mystery thriller that revolves around resolving murders that happened in 4 different cities of the globe. it narrates the story of Two women, the widows of two of the dead finding themselves constantly under attack and how they protect themselves only using there brain and intelligence. This surely was a page-turner full of unpredictable twists and I thoroughly enjoyed this novel on the journey of discovering some dark truths!

6. Chasing Tomorrow (Tracy Whitney #2)

Sidney Sheldon’s most popular and enduring heroine—Tracy Whitney is back and how in this novel. Chasing tomorrow is a sequel to If tomorrow comes and it comes full of suspense, and thrilling twists. This novel revolves around Tracy Whitney and the love of her life, Jeff Stevens. The plotline is amazingly written again and it continues at lightning speed! just when you think you know how the story unfolds, you may be in for one not so good shocker!

My ratings: * * * 1/2

7. Bloodline

Bloodline is a Hollywood adapted novel on a global family empire called ‘Roffe and Sons’. The head of the family- Sam Roffe meets with an accident mysteriously and his daughter Elizabeth takes over the business responsibilities. The story is about Elizabeth who is determined to not sell the business, on how she outwits all those who secretly wants her to be dethroned of the power and how she uncovers the unknown killer who constantly attacks her life. yet another brilliantly written plotline and narration by Sheldon!

My ratings: * * * 1/2

8. The Naked Face

Last but not least, The Naked Face is the debut novel written by Sidney Sheldon. It was nominated by the Mystery Writers of America for the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best First Novel by an American Author. The story is about a successful Psychoanalyst settled in Manhattan called Dr. Judd Stevens who is constantly under attack by someone. One of his patients and his receptionist is already murdered and Judd is next on the hit list. The plotline was well written but Sidney fails to give an amazing climax in this book! the predictable finale and those already known twists add on to the misery. Overall this was just an OK book for me but I enjoyed reading it for the story narrative!
