Webs Of Power; A Novel Book Review

Ok well I am not the best reviewer, but I do love to read. I am reading a series of books by Darlene Quinn. 
The first book I read is called: Webs Of Power; A Novel.
 I received this book from Netgalley for an honest review, I have received the whole series to read.

 What first attracted me to read these books, was the storyline, it is about the 80's I lived in the 80's as a young adult, so I remember the 80's. I also love reading powerful books with strong,  glamorous women, who live the high life, something that I don't live. This story is also about three women who happen to be linked to a large department store that is going through a take over. I really loved reading the story, I thought the author did an awesome job, kept me interested through the whole book. 
Here is what the book is about posted on Goodreads: Webs of Power is a raw, unsentimental portrayal of greed, manipulation, and relationships set in the excessive, insatiable retail industry of the 1980s. When a hostile takeover of the retail giant Consolidated is announced, the lives of three determined women, each linked to the corporate upheaval, are unexpectedly thrown off course: Paige Toddman's marriage to Consolidated's West Coast Division CEO is threatened when she decides to step out of her fast-paced lifestyle to raise the unwanted child she is carrying, a choice driven by her secret past. The fabric of Ashleigh McDowell's life begins to fray when her fiance, the president of Consolidated's West Coast Division, moves away and her father figure faces a lawsuit that could wipe out his controlling shares of the company's stock. Vain and power hungry, Viviana De Mornay will stop at nothing to become the wife of the man leading the takeover. Webs of Power is a thrilling real-world drama with dynamic characters who find the courage to drastically reshape their lives in the face of crises and the twists of fate.

I do recommend this book, if you like reading fast paced books, with a slight thriller edge and some romance and drama.

I found this quote from Darlene Quinn: 

Characters Should Be “Real” People

That is how her book seemed to me, real people, real lives.
