This was a good one, I remember loving the holiday house and wishing I could go somewhere as lovely... ahhh the joys of a DS novel!

I read this when I was in grad school far away from what had become my life. It was an easy, guilty pleasure read. And I very much enjoyed it :)

بدايةً الرواية غالية على قلبي لأنها هدية من صديقاتي , لكني سأتحدث عن مضمونها بغض النظر عما تعنيه لي .. الرواية من نمط " التيك أويه" .. قصة رومانسية مسطحة تتناول العلاقات والحب والصداقة والأبطال كهول وشيوخ ! وأنا أكره جداً تناول قصة حب بين مسنين أو كهلين ! ( على الرغم من أنّ الحب لا يقيده عمر كما يقولون ) .. القصة لم تضف لي شيئاً وأعتقد أنها لن تبقى بذاكرتي بعد أسبوعين من الآن .. لكن منزلتها ستبقى بقلبي إلى الأبد .. لا أنصح بقراءتها عموماً ..

If I could, I would give this book 2-1/2 stars. I'm a fan of Ms. Steel, but this was not her best work. There wasn't much of a plot, and a lot of the descriptions were very repetitious.

I wanted to like Diana, but she was portrayed as pretty unlikable, and that kept me from caring about what happened to her or her marriage. I found myself more sympathetic to her cheating husband, and I wish we had insight into their marriage other than it going from perfect and storybook to completely falling ap

This was an objectively terrible book.

I'd never read a romance novel before and decided I might as well see what they're like. With as open a mind as I could manage, I started reading this and within 3 pages was considering setting it on fire. I persevered in order to give it a fair go but it continued to disappoint in monumental proportions.

The prose is bland, simplistic, and dry. The characters are undeveloped and lack depth to the point that by the end they were virtually interchangeable in t

Back when I decided to read this, it was to find out why Danielle Steele is such a high seller, and it was a short book.

Big mistake. It read more like the outline for a much longer book. Characters are not developed, and it suffers from a bad case of telling instead of showing. Definitely not a book worth reading.

حسناً..هذه أول قراءة لدانيل ستيل! و هذه الرواية تبدو أنها فرنسية جداً! هل باقي كتاباتها كذلك؟
لم أشعر بالملل كثيراُ و لكن الترجمة ذكرتني بروايات عبير و أحلام !
ناهيك طبعاً عن بعض التفاصيل المستفزة التي تحتوي علي الكثير من الشموع و الليالي القمرية كلما مرت صفحتين أو ثلاثة

الرواية عادية جداً.. ليست بمستوى روايات دانيال ستيل المعتاد

امضيت اكثر من 3 شهور فى قرائتها بالرغم من صغر حجمها
لأنة الأحداث تقليدية ولا تشدك للمتابعة..
مفتقدة للعقدة وان كانت شخصيات الرواية
غنية ..
نجمة واحدة لبعض المواقف اللى عجبتنى فى الرواية

Es mi primera novela de Danielle Steel. Cuando era pequeña solía ver por la televisión las adaptaciones de algunas de sus historias y debo decir que sabía que el romance y cierto drama amoroso es la constante en ella cuando agarré esta novela de un lote de diez que compré por impulso de la autora.
¿Que imaginaba cuando tomé este libro por su título?: una historia divertida de enredos amorosos en St Tropez. Una ingenua total, porque la historia es diametralmente opuesta a eso. Pero solo me enteré

As Diana Morrison laid the table for six at her elegant Central Park apartment that New Year's Eve, she had no idea of what was to come in the coming year. New Year's Eve dinner together was a sacred tradition for Diana, her husband of 32 years, Eric, and their best friends, Pascale and John Donnally and Anne and Robert Smith. The future looked rosy for the six friends as they sipped champagne and discussed their plans to rent a villa together in the south of France for that summer. But life had ...more

Another lovely short story by Danielle Steel. This story is about three couples that are in their 60's. the youngest one just entered the 60 club, so to celebrate this milestone in their lives they decide to all take a vacation to St. Tropez. They get together a couple of times a month to have dinners at each others houses and celebrate New Years every year. This New Years they decide to go on this vacation in 6 months. During this time two of the couples face challenges that threaten the vacati ...more
9- If you could ask any character a question, what would you ask? If you could ask the author a question, what might be? Explain why you chose these questions.
I would like to ask Diana if she hasn’t forgiven her husband how she thinks that her life could finish in the book. I want to ask this because I believe that we can make mistakes too, so it is important to try to forgive who we love.
The question to the author is if she wrote the book based in her real experience. I’m curious to know if th

Este es un poco más relajado. Aquí aborda principalmente el tema de la amistad sincera: tres parejas que se conocen de hace varios años, cuando piensan en la idea de pasar las vacaciones todos para pasarla bien... el problema o la parte fuerte se da cuando muere la esposa de Robert, y sus amigos están con él apoyándolo en su proceso de duelo. De pronto conoce en el viaje a una actriz, wen, con quien robert inicia una nueva relación, pero ellos se oponen. Un libro que los entretendrá bastante.

In Danielle Steel's Sunset in St. Tropez, she took us from New York to a tropical paradise for a circle of friends and three couples. When Diana Morrison set the table in her home for her house, she didn't know what the new year would bring for her husband Eric and herself, and for the best of friends, Anne and Robert Smith, and John and Pascale Donnally. For them, it was a year to forget and a season of change, when they planned to rent a French villa. For Robert Smith, he lost his wife to a su ...more

well, first Steele book I've read, and admittedly not quite what I expected. More about friendships, interpersonal connections and coping with the problems life throws at us. Less about romance, and so on, though maybe my expectations were very missed judged.

I found it really hard to start reading as it probably took me a good half the book to grasp the characters, remember their names, and whom was partnered with whom. However, by the end I was a lot more involved, and bits of the story (not ju

A quick light romance novel. Thought the characters could have been more developed especially since they had issues behind their actions.

Three 50ish couples always spend New Year's Eve together and decide to plan an August vacation in St. Tropez. Two weeks after the holiday, tragedy strikes one of the couples, but they decide to follow through with the rental property. The rental turns out to be a little different than the brochure pictured and the house staff very unique couple. Things have ch

Ok so this one goes down as part of my 2015 Reading Challenge as 'A book at the bottom of your to-read list'. I do like Danielle Steel books but this one did seem like it fell a bit short.

Was a book about three sets of couples who have to cope with the loss of one of their partners, showing how each of them handle it. They all end up going on holiday a few months later and each seem to have their own problems going on. It seemed a bit mis-mashed in places and jumped around a bit so not always e

Jedna od manje slavnih Danijelinih knjiga, po mom mišljenju.
Iako je ovo prva njena koju sam pročitala, i koja me je podstakla da kupujem i čitam i ostale, ima najmanju ocjenu od svih dosad pročitanih.
Naime, radnja nije bogzna koliko zanimliva, javljaju se neke nelogičnosti tipa, kako jedna žena od 50 godina može zatrudniti? Ne kažem da ne može, samo mi je to bezvezan detalj u ovoj knjizi. Sve u svemu, mislim da je ovu knjigu napisala u dobu kad joj je već ponestajalo ideja.... Totalno mi je knji

I have read quite a few Danielle Steel books and this isn't one of her better ones. She must've been having a bad moment or something. Nothing exciting happens. Not as emotional as some of her other work. Not much of a plot - rather boring. The end is so predictable too.

She seemed to repeat herself a few times as if she was trying to fill out some pages!

Only took me a couple of days to read it as it wasn't taxing on the brain at all and less than 300 pages with big writing. Would have done bett

Three couples. Each seemingly, happily married. Then it happens. Loss. Infidelity. Betrayal...

Isn't Life just like that. Full of surprises that are sometimes unpleasant and undesired. Unexpectedly, an agent of Death raps upon the door and in an instant, changes everything! How precious the balance is. An ongoing cycle that we are reminded to cherish, especially when Fate comes around once more and blesses you with a second chance.

I adored the storyline and appreciated the steady flow of this boo

I usually like ur books, even love some of them, most are different and touching... what happened with this one though?? it was so predictable and such a bore! its only my love of novels that kept me going. A husband in 32 years of marriage cheats on his wife! How is someone supposed to have faith in marriages anymore? but the funniest part was in the end when pascale is pregnant, a gynac examines her and pregnancy is not even in his differentials! hope the next book I read does not let me down!
