I'm in chapter 5 still waiting for something to happen, there seems to be a lot of words but nothing said.
Her 80 books were wonderful, you were caught up in the books story line in the first chapter couldn't put it down.

Save your money and if you must read Danielle steel get it from library. Dull. Dull. Dull. And thus s the 2 nd Danielle steel I want to say STOP repeating. We as readers don't have memory problems. I'm not sure if she has to have so many words per chapter but please stop with the same thing over and over.

I absolutely hate it when the book description doesn’t match the actual plot. I thought this was going to be a story about 3 sisters dealing with their father’s death with his gifts left to them through his will to make their lives better. Instead, it’s a whiny diatribe of how busy each daughter is with their lives and how their divorced mother finds love with a jerk in Europe.

What I loved: That I made a decision to stop reading the novel around page 285. I couldn’t find anything redeeming about any character in this novel. Since Ms. Steel has about 5 new books arriving in 2016, I’m hoping one of them will be decent.

What I didn’t love: Where to begin….. EVERYTHING! This could have been a terrific novel about these three women changing their lives (and the lives of others) with their inheritances or even how their half brother is contesting the will (and the battle to reunite the family), but instead its all about their mother, her douchebag younger lover, and how selfish each daughter is now that they are in their 20s. Over 75% of the novel focuses on Veronique and Aidan and their romance. She was divorced from the girls’ dad for 20 years – she couldn’t find a suitable man then?

What I learned: To look both ways before crossing the street. Maybe you should try it once or twice Veronique..

Overall Grade: D

I'm one-third of the way through this book, and it sure is dragging and boring. Don't know if I'll read any more, or not. Not at all what I was hoping for.

All Danielle Steele's books are predictable, but this one is dull. The cast of characters include Paul, a raconteur, who married Veronique, an uber wealthy woman, and the daughters they had prior to divorcing. In Steele style, the story begins with a tragedy. Usually her tragedies are more dramatic, a plane crash, for example, but Steele begins her saga with Paul's death and the reading of his will.

The contents of the will surprise the beneficiaries, but they do not surprise me because the will launches the story. Veronique inherits a painting, and his daughters inherit varying sums of money with instructions about its use. A hands-off father for years, Paul takes a paternal interest from the grave.

Veronique immediately flies to Rome. Another calamity ensues when she is nearly hit by a Ferrari, only to be saved by a young Englishman. In the standard Steele storyline, she meets the Ferrari driver, a Russian richer than Croesus, and Adrian, her savior, who is proud to be poorer than a church mouse. She lets the Russian wine and dine her, but her heart belongs to Adrian, who not only eschews money, but is jealous and controlling.

Veronique and Adrian gallivant around Europe, and she almost loses him when she takes him to her Paris home, which Steele describes as one of the grandest homes in Paris. Poor Adrian (literally and figuratively). He is sickened by the opulence, especially because he realizes that Veronique, not her husband, brought wealth into the marriage. Almost in tears, he cannot reconcile her bundles of cash with his determination to remain a starving photographer, who specializes in taking pictures only of the most downtrodden.

This has to be the worst book by Danielle Steel that I have ever read. I kept reading expecting something more to happen, but it never did. Very disappointing read. Glad I got this from the library. I would have felt cheated if I had bought it.

I am a huge Danielle Steel fan and always recommend her books. This book tells you that there are still wonderful caring people around. Having four daughter's myself, it showed how caught up you can get in they're world but you have to make your own world. It was an enjoyable warm hearted read, enjoy

If you want to tour Europe and rub elbows with the rich and eat in fancy restaurants and stay in fancy hotels, this is the book for you. If you want the typical Danielle Steel book, then you will be sorry you spent the twenty bucks. At least wait for paperback. I have every book Danielle ever wrote and I will say this is my first at being so let down. I remember the books that kept me a fan, like "The Ring" and even her last two books were not as great a let down as this one. It almost felt like a book for information from a travel agency. Just saying.................................
