Read in January, 2009

I was a little hesitant to read Danielle Steel. Sure she has sold over 430 million novels and this one was a New York Times Bestseller, but I always got the impression she wrote smut. What I didn't know was how wrong I was.

While the book started out a little slow, making me hope for a little smuttiness, I started wondering why so many read her novels. Then out of nowhere it picked up big time. The romance, which I'm always a big sucker for, was so well done I found myself wishing I was a character in her novel.

If her other books are like this one I can see why so many are attracted to her writing.

If the story hadn't started out so slow, and had a little less predictable ending I would have given this book a higher rating. I give it a 3.5

Priscilla VdL that's a cool review...I'm currently reading The Ghost

Trish I am glad you gave DS a chance and enjoyed her writing. I like her well enough for quick books between others. I will warn you, almost all her books are the same. Different historical setting or location but for the most part very predictable if you have read a few others. That is why I like her for traveling and other unimportant reads.
