The constant repetitiveness of her story is ridiculous.
While I understand that she has a contract with her publishers and has to produce "X" amount of books a year.... slow it down and write how you are capable of writing.
For newbies just starting out reading DS, try reading Jewels or Long Road Home to get an idea of the capabilities this writer has.
These last few books are annoyingly repetitive and quite frankly, pretty predictable.
I found this book tedious, especially in the beginning. It took approximately the first 67 pages, to lay down the foundation, background, thoughts and motivation before we saw some forward motion toward a story about the protagonist, Timmie O'Neill. And then, once there was a bit of forward motion to something akin to a storyline, it was back to not much action shortly after that until about page 100 or so.
The main character, Timmie O'Neill, has risen from the ashes of a hard luck life, to be a most successful clothing/fashion designer and CEO of her own international company. Timmie works so hard and furious that she will make the average career woman feel like a sloth. I cannot imagine, how this fast paced woman will make the average stay-at-home mom or homemaker feel. After losing her husband, 11 years prior, Timmie has had relationships with "pretty boys", who apparently keep her entertained and use her, until she has had enough of the arm candy, they provide. But, she really does not need arm candy, as she rarely lives the fast and glamorous life.
While in Paris for fashion show week, Timmie is in need of a doctor and calls upon a recommendation given her by a friend. In walks the charming and handsome Dr. Jean-Charles Vernier.
At some point, a long distance romance begins to develop between the two. But, that gets derailed when Jean-Charles cannot disengage himself from his dead marriage, due to a number of tragedies.Read more ›
I'm now scanning and reading only the parts in quotes. I have been getting Steel's books from the library because I can't see wasting money on a book with 384 pages when I'm only reading the equivalent of about 100 of them. For some reason I can't resist reading Steel's books when a new one is published, but it's starting to be a real chore.
many of her books and have enjoyed most of them, this one is not a favorite!!!
Eagerly I settled in for a fun read. At the end of the first page, I thought there must have been some mistake; this must be a rough draft that mistakenly found its way to the publisher. Bad grammar, endless repetition, cliche's, did I mention repetition of the same phrase? Repeatedly?
By the second chapter, the only description that fits the reader's experience is "mental stunned silence." This is the worst book ever written. It achieves this literary distinction because it has the framework of a story that deserved competent authorship, but is so hopelessly buried in excruciatingly painful delivery that the story is not worth finding.
The female lead character meets a French physician who directs her post-surgical care for a week in a Paris hospital. She speaks with him several times a day. They enjoy each others company. She gives him a very expensive watch as a thank you gift.
Months later she coordinates a second meeting with him in New York and describes their reunion as being "Love at First Sight."
Wait, what? WHAT? Danielle honey, don't tell us that you have not only given up writing, but have also abandoned MATH?
The very unflattering photograph of Ms. Steel on the back of the book jacket was another indication of the bad advice Ms. Steel is getting from her publisher, or the good advice that she is ignoring. I can only hope that her editor died some years back and the team forgot to tell Ms. Steel that the position was never refilled.Read more ›
