When Vivian Kincaid's eyes meet those of a hunky local at the Turkish university her father forces her to attend, it only takes her a split second to recognize her childhood friend. Levent Deniz was the servant boy who taught her to run the streets of Istanbul years before, giving outlet to her wild streak even as a child.
Now face-to-face once again as adults, the only thing standing between them and happiness is her father. The newly appointed Consul General for the United States has other plans for his only daughter. Ones that do not include a former servant, now successful entrepreneur and businessman. He will do everything in his power to keep them apart.The Diplomat's Daughter is set in 1960s Istanbul and tells the story of pre-destiny, passion and the rebellious power of true love.
RATING: 3.5 Stars out of 5
I admit that I was drawn by the cover's background, which I think is beautiful. The colors used was eye-catching and I simply had to know what the book was about. The Diplomat's Daughter was set in 1960s Istanbul, which I have never read before and that raised by interest by another notch.
Vivian and Levent were worlds apart. Vivian was simply way above Levent in terms of their status. I enjoyed reading about their childhood pasts. Vivian's father disapproved of his daughter following Levent around. Knowing this, Levent's parents sent him away. Years later, the two met again and their past resurfaced.
I think the tension between the two grown up Vivian and Levent was obvious, as were their attraction for each other. However, Levent still had this notion that Vivian was his superior and they couldn't be together. This kept repeating. I felt like hitting him on the head at times for that. As for Vivian, it seemed a little weird that she would want to continue after discovering Levent doing something not so good. I thought it would take a while for her to get back to him again but it was pretty quick. Hence, 3.5 Stars for The Diplotmat's Daughter. Nevertheless, The Diplotmat's Daughter was an enjoyable read.
