However, I have learned to skim thru her books and just scratch the surface of her story. If you do that, it's not a bad story. It does have some intersting story lines---with the terrorist bombing in a Paris tunnel to her amnesia, her "old" heart throb, her children,etc. But you have to skim quickly to avoid all the things that have now marked Ms.Steel as a poor writer.
And to the person who wrote that this is an insight into Hollywood---don't count on it. She did absolutely no research on how this would have happened in the real world. And her main character having amnesia never would have said the things she said as she was "coming out" of her coma. This was not a medically sound story of brain injury patients. Being a nurse gives me the ability to critique that part of her story---and she did not portray a realisic post-traumatic brain injury----not even close.
I do not recommend this book to anyone. I can only hope that Ms. Steele would take the time to read reviews from readers and learn that we're not happy with her new style of writing----and her mass productions of way too many books that are becoming less and less interesting. Perhaps if we stop buying and reading her novels, she'll either retire from writing or go back to her previous novels and re-capture that side of her talent. We can only hope. She was at one time a very talented writer. What happened?
I agree with those who mentioned the insane use of commas! What's amusing is that in another Steel book I reviewed, I noted the total lack of commas. Rather than have an educated editor put them in the correct places, someone just threw in commas so they'd be there. Great job.
I also found some glaring errors in the text. In one hospital scene, Steel meant to write that Stevie was sitting by the bed, but wrote Carole instead. Carole was sitting beside her comatose self in the hospital? Was she suddenly ghosting herself? I couldn't quite get past that visual.
I actually finished the book and I'll tell you how I did it. From about page 150, all I read was the dialogue, skipping all the repetitive descriptive passages! I just wanted to see if the lovely, serene, and wonderful Carole would regain her memory and find the love that she so richly deserved!
At one point, I vowed never to read another DS book, but now I read them because it's so much fun to write these reviews! Sheesh... do I need a life or what?
