Golden Poppy by Vivian Winslow & Review


New York socialite, Poppy Baron, has guarded her secrets for decades. With only a few months to live, she vows to heal her relationship with her daughters and to come to terms with the two decisions that have forever haunted her. 
This novella is the final installment of the Gilded Flower Saga. Readers will finally get to learn how Poppy Kent became Poppy Baron and how her daughters paid the price for her love affair with Gustavo de Lima.
Poppy first appears in Gilded Lily as the manipulative Baron matriarch. Throughout the Gilded Flowers Trilogies and Wildflowers Series, the fate of her daughters, Lily and Dahlia, and those linked to her world, became intertwined as each of the young women
s love stories unfolded. 
Not all relationships have their happily-ever-after, but real love transcends everything
even death.

Darra's Review:

Poppy is one of the most epic characters I have read. And have stalked Vivian to know even more about her. Talk about a 4 dimensional persona. I have read all of Vivian's books and this book was the most anticipated book this year. She makes the female characters into an example of strength and empowerment of taking over ones life. Despite what life throws Poppies way, she got it handled. I won't tell you Poppy was perfect. She made bad decisions however she became the woman she needed to be.
There is so much in this book. Her daughters, her husband(huff) and Gustav. This is a lifetime of memories and an ending that left me choked up. A surprising ending. Yes, it was going to happen. It was no bed of roses like HEA's always end. I was mixed in every emotion but in the end, at feel at peace to end of Poppy's book.
If you haven't read The Gilded Series and the two Poppy books, you must. So, you will understand why my review is a bundle of emotions and praise.
I rate the book a 4.9 out of 5. It is not a story you will forget.
