Sebastian is dead, is the opening line of Be Careful What You Wish For, but just like all of Jeffrey Archer’s tales, it’s the first of many twists, because Harry Clifton, Sebastian’s father, rushes to the hospital only to discover…When Ross Buchanan is forced to resign as chairman of the Barrington Shipping Company, Emma Clifton wants to take his place, but Don Pedro Martinez plans to install his puppet, the egregious Major Alex Fisher, so he can destroy the Barrington family firm once and for all.The talented Jessica Clifton, Harry and Emma’s adopted daughter, wins a scholarship to the Slade Academy of Art and falls in love with a fellow student, Clive Bingham, who asks her to marry him. Both families are delighted and preparations for the nuptials are well under way, when Charlotte 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.But then, without warning, a man no one had ever heard of takes his place on the board of Barringtons and causes an upheaval that none of them could have anticipated. Cedric Hardcastle, a bluff Yorkshire banker, quickly decides who he should support, Emma Clifton or Don Pedro Martinez, and the story takes yet another twist.In one last throw of the dice, Martinez sets up an audacious coup when the MV Buckingham sets sail on its maiden voyage to New York.  If you were on the edge of your seat at the end of Best Kept Secret, then prepare for sleepless nights once you’ve turned the last page of Be Careful What You Wish For, when you will wonder how Harry, Emma and Giles can possibly survive.Be Careful What You Wish For showcases the master storyteller’s talent like never before—as the Clifton and Barrington families march forward into the sixties, in an epic tale of love, loss, ambition and betrayal.

Another entertaining read in the Clifton chronicles by Archer. I still think the original book in this series was the best as it spend a lot of time on character development. This book was a bit better than the last in my opinion as it spent some time focusing on new characters, but it still was not...

2.0 Review - Be Careful What You Wish For by Jeffrey Archer
I gave this book two stars because the GSP (grammar, spelling, and punctuation) was spot on. Other than that? Gah. Archer used to be one of my favorite authors. Used to be. He has now fallen into niche writing... sort of like Stephen King. All his characters are essentially the same, as are hi...
