Présentation de l'éditeur

New York Times Bestselling Author

Sidney Sheldon’s most popular and enduring heroine—Tracy Whitney of If Tomorrow Comes—returns in a sensational sequel full of passion, suspense, and breathtaking twists.

Tracy Whitney never wanted to settle down. Responsible for some of the world’s most astounding heists with her brilliant, charming partner Jeff Stevens, she's enjoyed the danger and relished the intensity of life on the wild side. But she’s had enough of conning the rich and corrupt out of their ill-gotten fortunes. The one thing that would make her life complete now is marriage and a child with Jeff.

But first, Tracy must finish one last job. An unexpected encounter with an old enemy triggers a series of disturbing events that Tracy never anticipated, raising terrifying ghosts she thought were dead and buried. Once again, this clever woman finds herself out on the edge, playing the odds in a desperate game of roulette.

The stakes have always been high. But with her life and her future on the line, Tracy needs to dig deeper than she’s ever gone before, and find the strength and courage to trump her rivals, no matter what the cost.

Tomorrow has come at last. But it isn’t the future Tracy bargained for . . .

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Captured Sidney Sheldon's Style Perfectly 13 octobre 2014
Par Benjamin Thomas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I’m a sucker for a good story about con-men and women. There’s just nothing like pulling off a good caper, especially when it’s the less savory people who get conned. Sidney Sheldon, one of the most popular writers for TV in the 1960’s and 70’s and who then turned to writing novels in the 1980’s, was adept at creating interesting characters and subjecting them to all sorts of thrilling conditions. By no means have I read all of his works but of those that I have, “If Tomorrow Comes” is one of my favorites. It’s a very nice novel about running cons and featured the character of Tracy Whitney, a girl who suffered immensely at the hands of fate and got into the con game largely for revenge. She was definitely a character worth rooting for, even as she became one of the most elite high-end thieves in the world.

And now, Tracy Whitney is back. Author Tilly Bagshawe has penned several “sequels” to Sheldon’s novels as she has picked up his mantle and very accurately captured Sheldon’s voice. This novel picks up with Tracy living the happily-ever-after scenario that we all had hoped for her after the first book. Tracy and her husband, (and former partner in crime), Jeff Stevens are settling down as it were but it isn’t long before people from their past intrude and force them back to their old lives. Tracy and Jeff put the “artist” in con artist, and their reputation sometimes works against them, especially when they need to work with law enforcement as happens in this novel.

This is a nicely plotted novel and definitely kept me turning the pages. Once again I rooted for the main characters and hoped the plot twists wouldn’t leave them too battered and bruised. The author brings her A-game to this one and it shows. Tracy and Jeff don’t always make the best decisions and that leads them further into trouble. Sometimes it seemed like I was watching a movie-of-the-week from the 1980’s, but then again, that was Sidney Sheldon’s style. I appreciated that not all challenges were neatly wrapped up and the ending is very appropriate, even if somewhat bittersweet. I suppose there could be another novel with these characters but I think this tale is nicely complete.

Make sure to read the first book, "If Tomorrow Comes", before beginning this one. Many plot points tie in directly to the first book and several shocking events won’t have much of an impact if you don’t.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Not comparable to Sidney Sheldon books 24 décembre 2014
Par ML - Publié sur Amazon.com

First of all I think they should have never turned "If tomorrow comes" into a series, that was a story on its own. Sidney Sheldon was a genius and nobody can compare. Clearly I did not like this book. At first I got excited when I found this book, I admit that I wanted to read more and more to see what was going to happen, this story is definitely not predictable but still not comparable to Sidney Sheldon's style. I hated the end but I guess that was a good way to leave room for another book. I would not recommend this book though.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not that bad but leaves a lot to be desired 28 février 2015

I read the reviews and the ending ( last chapter) before actually reading the book. People said ending was bad so I figured if it really is bad I won't bother to read a book. Ending was not that good, not so much because of the events but because everything was rushed and made little cense to event at the beginning.
I ended up reading a book in two days. First 300 pages are fairy OK, author has came a long way since "After the Darkness" when she copied Sheldon and poorly constructed weak and cheap plot. Here she did better, it was planned and made some sense, but to many things were shifted, and I feel they were shifted for one reason, and one reason only. Money. Ending was so open ended and few loose ends left, probably to secure another sequel. Also the book was shifted to present time, instead of the 90s, and Jeff and Tracey are no longer born in late 50s, but mid 70s, and that is just weird since Jeff was in Vietnam War in the original book. Tracey was made younger then she really was, by at lest 3-4 years. I would imagine this transplant to another time was done to make sure some plots are more interesting and to do less research, since the writer was young adult in the 90s. Sheldon was a master of placing books in different times, but he lived though many hard time in the world such as Great Depression, World War II and post war time. Bagshawe simply does not have that experience. So maybe that why she decided to play safe but it fell flat. Plot could have been easily set in 90s, with brick phones and early laptops. References she makes are more there to connect with younger audience and sell more books then to do anything to the plot. She starts well, and I do cut her a lot of slack since she will never be Sheldon, but the culmination of events was a bit to ambitious for Bagshawe. And when she needed more writing work to get Tracy and Jeff reunited, she decided to make it easy and just skip that part and fast forward.
Maybe some things are better left alone, but Sheldon estate clearly wants to sell more books and make more money, and in this day and age when they milk people with useless sequel one after another, I guess to leave some things alone is probably to much to ask.

She's back! Yes, Tracy Whitney, international art thief and robber is back in town and she's back with a vengeance in this book. Readers were introduced to the thieving pair of Jeff Stevens and Tracy Whitney in IF TOMORROW COMES. Tilly Bagshawe, while a good copy cat has, in her words "been entrusted with Tracy Whitney" by the Sheldon estate. Entrusting someone with a literary character....a very interesting way of looking at it.

Sidney Sheldon was a master of the trash genre and so is Tilly Bagshawe. They are a literary trash writers match made in heaven! Apparently so were Tracy and Jeff, until....

Our international maurading heroes are about to embark on a new life in London as a married couple. Prior to tying the knot, you just know they had to pull off another scam. Something to do with masquerading as a countess to secure plenty of valuables.....

Once married, Tracy's goal is family and Jeff miraculously lands a job as a curator of antiquities. To make the miracle even more impressive, Jeff's background is never questioned and BAM! He's installed and racks up impressive credentials. When Tracy goes down to visit him at work, she immediately pegs four people she believes are potential thieves. Takes one to know one....

Enter a dazzling stranger who rings the death knell on Jeff and Tracy's marriage. The stranger is a truly odious character that you just can't like. Crushed, Tracy sells the marital home and just disappears, leaving Jeff to pick up the pieces of his life. The home wrecker is not finished yet - there are more people to hurt. The stranger is a ruthless emotional juggernaut and a truly hateful character.

Jean Rizzo, a Franco-Canadian Interpol Inspector is a truly likable character. His sister was a prostitute who had been killed, so he is very sympathetic to prostitutes. Eleven prostitutes have been killed within two days after a major jewel or art theft has occurred. Not just any jewel and art thefts - ones that involved Tracy Whitney! Their deaths take place in 10 cities. Only Rizzo believes there is a connection. The question is whether or not such a connection exists.

Rizzo, like the unstable insurance investigator Daniel Cooper hounds the pair and the string of deaths like a bloodhound. The case consumes him to the point of costing him his marriage. Unlike Cooper, Rizzo is a truly good man who is determined to seek justice and do the right thing.

Cooper and the ruthless stranger are two very repugnant characters. That having been said, there are some funny parts in this book. I thought it was funny when Tracy was trying to outdo her old nemesis in a jewelry heist. I also thought it was funny when Tracy made sure her rival knew she had the last laugh in the jewelry heist.

References to characters from the prequel crop up and readers who have not read IF TOMORROW COMES are brought up to speed in typical Shel-Shawe fashion: at a breakneck pace. Shel-Shawe (yes, I combined the names as the two really are an ideal trashy literary match) books do keep readers' collective interest. Plots are redirected and new and old characters alike are brought to the foreground. Nine years later, Jeff is still devastated over the end of his marriage to Tracy and has still not come to terms with her disappearance. The question is, where is Tracy? And is she still in the business?

Rizzo is nothing if not successful. He does eventually find Tracy. He finds the right Long & Winding Road that led him to her door. Whoever the serial killer is has some link to Tracy. Does she know about the killings? Does she know the killer or anything about the killer? When another prostitute is found killed, does that mean Tracy is in danger as well? And how did she successfully go into hiding and how did Rizzo's bloodhound sniffer track her down?

This book takes readers around the world, from the U.S. to Asia to Eastern Europe. The breakneck speed of the story will keep readers riveted and wanting to know what will happen next. Don't be surprised if the ending throws you for a loop.

Although you know going in this will be the usual trashy fare, I gave it three stars for the brilliant descriptions of the places and by virtue of the fact that it was funny. Seriously, I think Ms. Bagshawe has a brilliant career in comedy should she ever go that route.

The Eurythmics' 1983 classic "Sweet Dreams Are Made of This" underscores this story.

"Usually, when people get to the end of a chapter, they close the book and go to sleep. I deliberately write a book so when the reader gets to the end of the chapter, he or she must turn one more page."
------ Sidney Sheldon, the late American author who has over 300 million books in print.

The world's most notable crime author, Sheldon's legacy is now taken up another best-selling author, Tilly Bagshawe, who has held the position quite remarkably. This time, she writes another sequel to another greatest creation of Sheldon, If Tomorrow Comes, named, Chasing Tomorrow. Well, in one word- the book is thrilling and intriguing but if you are a die-hard fan of Sheldon, then Bagshawe's novel will not intrigue you that much, it might leave you with a frown on your fact at the end of the book!

Synopsis:
Chasing Tomorrow begins right where If Tomorrow Comes ended- right in the middle of a plane journey, but in a different era. Tracy is going to rob the worlds most notorious and one of the richest man Pier. But wait! That's not the real story, for so many years, Tracy and her partner-n-crime, Jeff had been a con-artist. And now they are all set to get married. Finally they both found their one true love. But it seems Tracy's fantasy of a being a married woman is not turning out to be that well mostly because when a twenty-something girl is crushing on Tracy's most handsome husband, Jeff. That sounds like a regular marriage drama! Where's the 'THRILL/MURDER/RAWNESS'? The story's just getting started. Eventually, Tracy left Jeff, after Jeff's slip-up with that twenty-something girl and Tracy get vanished into thin year. Turn the page and you find Tracy eight years later in her home-country-America! But when a ghost from Tracy's past surfaces up and challenges her, it seems to Tracy that she indeed has so many unfinished business to put dirt on her burned past's ashes, since this was the tomorrow she was expecting for herself and she needs it to be perfect without any rivals on her way!

Well, this book didn't turn out to be that exciting like Bagshawe's previous novel, Angel of the Dark, which was in one word- brilliant! Tracy Whitney, Sheldon's protagonist seems to have withered away with time. She didn't have that passion to kill or to take revenge; instead she's more homely who loved fantasizing about her future. A girl with a broken past is now relenting upon her life. Her anger has died away. Moreover, like everyone says that it's predictable, I too will agree with that. Since a Sidney Sheldon fan will always be a Sidney Sheldon fan, no matter whoever comes and mimics his writing style. Well Bagshawe has tried and also tried to write those Sheldon sequels in Sheldon's flawless style, and for that I'd like to hats off to the author, since she almost sounds like him every time. The characters are one a kind, like reading about them will make you feel hell yeah! I know this chick so well. Raw and passion was present in Bagshawe's writing style and I loved that.
The only con would be the plot- it was obviously predictable, unlike Sheldon's riveting plots.
No, I'm not saying that it didn't had any twists to make Chasing Tomorrow riveting, yes there were lots of unexpected twists and turns, which will ultimately leave you with more knots in your brain, but being a die-hard fan of Sheldon, for me those knots were not that complex to open them up.
While reading Sheldon's books, you are bound to get the chills down your spine, since there is too much blood and sex, which will make your skin burn with passion, and this, is what lacks from Bagshawe's books!

Verdict: Read this book to unwind yourself on a boring weekend!
