    1. I slid further down the wall with this one Readable, but, oh so predictable, because well, if you read the ones before it, you read it already.

    2. I ve been obsessing over V.C Andrews since my mother bought me the entire Dollanganger series After finishing Flowers in the Attic I was on a quest to read everything with her name on it, even though I was aware that the real V.C Andrews had died prior to finishing the Casteel series I wasn t able to read the books in the order they were published, but for the most part I enjoyed the books that I did pick up The first book in this series appeared to follow the normal V.C Andrews format and intri [...]

    3. Just finished this today and would highly recommend it to anyone that read the first book in the series, Ruby This book mostly deals with the twin Dumas sisters once they re enrolled in private school THrough lots of twists and turns along the way, Ruby has to deal with her crippled twin, who is mean in this book than in the first I feel for this character, always having to be the bigger person and the one who tries to do right, only to be punished for things she s accused of without just cause [...]

    4. Considering the amount of good gris gris Ruby had about her, it didn t do much good I liked that she kept her faith in it all despite NOTHING going right for her Way to many black cats being killed for their bones for my liking My memory must be really muddled with the Andrews books as I remembered this being alot better I was waiting for a scene that never happened which I was convinced was in this book Some events I didn t remember at all Ruby had a bit of a backbone in this one She stood up [...]

    5. Ruby is back, this time she s whisked away from her new home in New Orleans and sent off to a rich boarding school in Baton Rouge with her conniving sister Giselle Greenwood is an all girls school and is very strict with rules and expectationswhich goes double for Ruby as the Headmistress makes it clear that she s in charge of Giselle s actions as well.I think I d give this 3.5 stars It was interesting enough but so darn frustrating Ruby cried a lot and I would have liked to see her actually sti [...]

    6. This book is really enjoyable and there are times that I can t stop reading I felt the emotions Hated Gissele now but I m kinda looking forward on her character to improve I mean a back story why she is always acting like that Anyway I dont like how they disregard the other stories here I mean they build the character of Louis, her friend Abby, her teacher Ms Stevens, Mrs Clairborne and specially the FULL STORY what really happen to Louis s parents does he and his mother had an incest relations [...]

    8. This is the second book in the Landry series and focuses once again on Ruby The setting moves to a boarding school for most of the book which changes things up a bit Once again Ruby is very naive and gullible, it like she never learns The book ends with her getting pregnant and returning to the swamp to have a baby It nice to see Ruby back in the Bayou but I feel that her happiness will be short lived

    9. This novel was typical during the first few chapters But it ended beautifully when all of a sudden, the story got rapidly enticing as a lot of twists and turns came about Andrews write with mere passion that you can actually feel that the characters are real Just like in a Hollywood movie The story is very realistic and really tugs the heartstrings of every young lady who s life has been trampled on by the reckless society A must read It s like a TV drama in prose.

    11. Not exactly a review Just my thoughts as I read or less I quite enjoyed this book as I did Ruby I shouldn t but I enjoyed Giselle as I did Fanny in the Casteel series So terrible but entertaining Well I ve forgiven Beau Glad Ruby admits now that he pressured her into the portrait Even though Giselle is a spoiled brat and sadly like many parents, her antics and bad behaviour are ignored Her tempering in the beginning surprisingly amuses me Just going on and on complaining Fluttering fish in her [...]

    12. Gisselle and Ruby are shipped off the Greenwood school under the hawk like gaze of the strict headteacher But the upper class students of Greenwood don t take too kindly to Ruby and her Bayou ways and, whilst she is away from her stepmother, her sister is still around to make her life misery Not as gripping as Ruby, but still an entertaining read.

    13. The second book of the series on Ruby Laudry Dumas proved to be quite satisfactory, with the exception of the last couple pages in the last chapter That part I felt the author rushed to summarize and finish up the book It would have done the book the honor it deserved by writing out things the same pace that the book took us through In Pearl of the Mist, Ruby suffered problems and trouble, especially with her step mother Daphne, and her evil twin sister, Giselle Everyone had decided that Ruby w [...]

    15. I ll give this book three stars simply because it starts out strong and it s way better than some of the later trash that was published under the V.C Andrews name, but I m warning you, the novel eventually deteriorates into a series of unbelievable soap like twists In this instalment Ruby and Giselle are sent away to boarding school Basically, they re being sent away so that Daphne does not have to continue to deal with the fact that these kids are not her own and, therefore, she won t be tempte [...]

    16. This second book in the Landry series has Ruby getting into trouble at her school, Greenwood She befriends Louis, the grandson of the founder of the school He s been blind ever since the death of his parents, but Ruby seems to have that magic touch since his sight does get restored and he is able to get a life back Ruby continues to love her painting, and enjoys spending time with the art teacher, Miss Stevens Giselle is miserable at Greenwood and will try everything to get her and Ruby back to [...]

    17. Interesting developments, however I m disappointed that Louis wasn t in the book much Why bother to build up his character only to have nothing happened between him and Ruby He went off to a music place and she got pregnant to Beau.I really dislike how the book was so well paced up until the last 50 pages or so Ruby got pregnant within not even a page, was kicked out of school the next page, returned to New Orleans, then taken to get an abortion, then decided to run off back to Houma, all in the [...]

    18. In this book the authors purpose was to entertain the audience This is a fiction book, so there is no real information that is in this book It was very entertaining and that is the purpose of the book The theme of the book is to never loose faith Ruby never loses her hope of being accepted in her new world and even though she loses the only person she feels connected her to this different world She also never loses faith in the aspect that she never gets rid of her roots in the bayou This novel [...]

    20. The first book made me curious, but this one, the second of the Landry Series, really drew me in The subject matter of this book is definitely not for everyone, but to describe it would be to spoil it Being Southern myself, I heard their accents in my head And I read it with a dialect like few books I ve ever experienced It gave them a realness I could see them, and know exactly what these characters would sound and look like I would LOVE for these stories to be turned into a film series.The twi [...]

    22. Book 2 in the Landry Family series was every bit as enjoyable as the first book V.C Andrews is such a captivating author and has that way of making you keep turning the pages The story of Ruby Landry Ruby Dumas and her twin sister Giselle continues As with the first book there is an abundant amount of heartache and strife for Ruby She is such a strong character and is so vibrant you can t help but cheer her on I look forward to reading her further exploits in the next book and I hope that althou [...]

    23. I didn t enjoy the Landry series as much as I enjoyed the first three VCA series, but the Landry books are still an entertaining read, and Andrew Neiderman s efforts show here unlike his later books The Hudson series and so on afterward This series is unique in that it has identical twins, which is something our protagonists never had to deal with before.Ruby was an entertaining read and I liked this book, but I must say that I was somewhat disappointed with the ending I mean, it just felt like [...]

    24. There was a lot in this book that I didn t remember from reading this when I was a teen I was frustrated with Ruby for the majority of this book There were so many times that she just lets things happen to her and then cries that she has no control over what s happening to her Towards the end, there was some growth in her character I m wondering if it was just that slow because there are 3 4 books in the series.There was one really disturbing point in the book when she nearly let herself get ve [...]

    26. I didn t really get interested until they introduced Louis who is clearly a clone of Troy from the Casteel series I was hoping Ruby s relationship with him would go in a turbulent romantic direction but that tapered off quickly Sometimes the book was a bit boring It gets old having Ruby be this Mary Sue who everyone is soooo affected by Guy s been blind for half his life Two meetings with Ruby will restore his sight It s also annoying having all these people put Ruby in a do as I say or else pos [...]

    27. Second book in V C Andrews Dumas series Just like the first, kinda slow and boring but not enough to make you put it down It began picking up right at the very end and she s left with a hard decision to make It actually makes you wonder enough to pick up the third I had intended on starting a different book tonight but now, I may start the third one for this series instead Maybe both We ll see
