"Be Careful What You Wish For opens with Harry Clifton and his wife Emma rushing to learn the fate of their son Sebastian, who has been in a fatal car accident. But who died, Sebastian or his best friend? When Ross Buchanan is forced to resign as chairman of the Barrington Shipping Company, Emma Clifton wants to replace him. But Don Pedro Martinez intends to install his puppet, Alex Fisher, in order to destroy the Barrington family firm just as the company plans to build its new luxury liner. In London, Harry and Emma's daughter wins a scholarship to the Slade Academy of Art where she falls in love with Clive Bingham, who asks her to marry him. Both families are delighted until Jessica's future mother-in-law has a visit from a friend who drops her particular brand of poison into the wedding chalice. Then Cedric Hardcastle, a Yorkshireman who no one has come across before, takes his place on the board of Barringtons. This causes upheaval and will change the lives of every member of the Clifton and Barrington families. Hardcastle's first decision is who to support to become the chairman of the board: Emma Clifton or Alex Fisher? And with that the story takes yet another twist that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Be Careful What You Wish For showcases the master storyteller's talent as never before--when the Clifton and Barrington families march forward into the sixties in this epic tale of love, revenge, ambition and betrayal"--… (més)

This fourth installment of The Clifton Chronicles continues from where Mr. Archer had left the previous one hanging and proceeds through a series of attacks and counter-attacks towards another cliffhanger ending. The new characters introduced in this book are quite interesting and I would like to see more of Mr. Hardcastle. The combat between the good and the bad guys, again too convenient for the good ones at many instances, makes this one a page-turning read.
I'm not sure whether the glass-in-fish-paste episode was necessary, as it doesn't add anything to the story.
Despite all its flaws, this series is quite an entertainer and I'm off to read the next book in the line! ( )

Bristol 1957: Der Vorsitzende der Barrington Schifffahrtgesellschaft wird zum Rücktritt gezwungen – für Emma Clifton ist dies die Gelegenheit, den Posten zu übernehmen und Macht über die Gesellschaft zu gewinnen. Doch die tragischen Ereignisse um ihren Sohn Sebastian, der in einen Autounfall verwickelt wurde, legen einen Schatten über Emma und ihren Mann Harry …

EXCELLENT... but now I have to wait until 2015 for the final book. ( )

This is the fourth book out of seven in Archer's Clifton Chronicles series. The series follows multiple generations of a family through the 20th Century. This book takes place in the early 1960's. Each of the books ends with a cliffhanger so I'm glad I didn't start to read the series until Archer was finished writing it.

The Clifton/Barringtons are successful people with talented offspring and plenty of enemies who want to see them fail. That’s pretty much the plot of all the books in the series and it’s an entertaining story. It's not great literature but it's the book version of a good (and pretty) television miniseries.

I really enjoyed the financial games that were crucial to one of the big turning points in this book. I'm looking forward to finding out what happens next with this family. ( )
