** After their escape from the attic, the remaining Dollangangers are adopted by the generous Paul Sheffield, who even puts Chris through medical school. (Things get a little creepy when Paul begins a relationship with the underage Cathy, but it's still better than the attic.)

** After their escape from the attic, the remaining Dollangangers are adopted by the generous Paul Sheffield, who even puts Chris through medical school. (Things get a little creepy when Paul begins a relationship with the underage Cathy, but it's still better than the attic.)) Later, Cindy is quite happily adopted by Cathy and Chris who very much consider her their own daughter.

Added DiffLines:

* CoolOldLady: Grandmother Hudson, who blissfully averts the EvilMatriarch trope that many of the grandmothers seem to have. She hides her BrokenBird past by becoming a DeadpanSnarker and ends up befriending Rain with SnarkToSnarkCombat that evolves into playful banter. They both end up becoming the closest people to each other until [[spoiler: Grandmother Hudson dies at the end of ''Lightning Strikes'' and leaves Rain the majority of her fortune over her daughters Megan and Victoria.]]


Added DiffLines:

* MaskOfSanity: Victoria Hudson seems to be a competent albeit stern businesswoman on the outside but [[spoiler: she's really a spiteful woman angry that her father (who wasn't really her father) favored her sister and seeks out revenge against her sister and mother by terrorizing her paraplegic niece (who her mother favored over her daughters) and having an affair with her brother-in-law when her sister is grieving over her son's death in a mental hospital.]]

Newer books published in her name have become [[FranchiseZombie increasingly farfetched over time]] and most of them resemble a SoapOpera or a LifetimeMovieOfTheWeek, but her international fanbase remains undiminished.

* BeautyEqualsGoodness: The protagonists tend to be very beautiful, with their foils being not really ''ugly'' but they have ''this one particular thing'' mentioned about them that isn't "beautiful." This is usually being overweight, having bad hair, lips as thin as rubberbands, etc.

** Dawn Cutler says that her sister-in-law Betty is very plain compared to her so it makes it easy for Philip to pretend that Betty is Dawn. Once she has the twins, however, Dawn soon changes her mind when motherhood becomes very good to her figure.


Added DiffLines:

* FaceHeelTurn: In "Twilight's Child," Betty Cutler is Dawn's kind sister-in-law and Christie's beloved "Aunt Bet" who remains good-natured and a doting mother to her twins Richard and Melanie (nicknamed Mellon by Christie who couldn't say her name). "Midnight Whispers," however, transforms her into a haughty woman who spoils her children to make up for their father's lack of attention and seems to look down on everyone. It could be a result of Philip's emotional abuse and neglect but not once in "Twilight's Child" did Betty accuse Dawn of anything relating to Philip and feared that she herself was to blame for some reason. Even more jarring is how cold she becomes to her niece and nephew when she showed great fondness toward Christie from the start.

* FamilyRelationshipSwitcheroo: Several examples of this. Notably, in the ''Wildflowers'' series Cat discovers that [[spoiler:Geraldine, her adoptive mother, is actually her sister - they share the same birth mother but Cat was raised as Geraldine's daughter.]]
** That also gets taken UpToEleven when [[spoiler:Geraldine turns out to be adopted, meaning that Cat has no blood relation to her at all]]

It turns out that [[spoiler: Geraldine is actually her sister - they Cat's half-sister. They share the same birth mother mother, but Cat was raised as Geraldine's daughter.]]
** That also gets taken UpToEleven when [[spoiler:Geraldine
daughter after their mother had a "shameful" extramarital affair with her husband's younger brother (whom Geraldine was in love with), and got pregnant.
