You can count of Danielle Steel for a few things: light, fluffy reads; extreme repetition; and every other sentence staring with "And."

That being said, this was typical Steel fare. If you're familiar with Danielle Steel you'll know what you're getting. Beautiful people in beautiful surroundings with either minor conflict or tragic circumstances (there is rarely any in-between). For the most part this is conflict of the minor sort with the daughter reacting as if there's a major tragedy. A 19-20 year old pitching a fit over the fact that her father is dating? A 21 year old having a meltdown when he announces that he and the girlfriend are going to marry? It's difficult to have empathy for a character who acts llike a spoiled, bratty 5 year old having a major tantrum. Heloise was mainly likable but when her father dared to try to have a life of his own... look out.
