This was one of the smaller novels that Danielle Steel was able to actually pull off. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan, it's just that about half of her smaller books aren't worth the reading time. This one though I really enjoyed. I liked the overall story and the characters.

Fun to read a romance with an older couple that's relevant - at least by Hollywood standards - realistic - possibly not but good escapism for a Danielle Steel book. Reminds me of the Jack Nicholson/Diane Keaton romance a little.

Dashing Jack Watson is the playboy owner of Julie's, a chic Beverly Hills toggery. He's sworn off marriage after the love of his life perished in a car accident a decade ago. One day, his son's mother-in-law--the glamorous ex-starlet Amanda Robbins--is suddenly widowed after 36 years of wedded bliss. Throughout their children's marriage, Jack and Amanda have always maintained a cordial loathing for one another ... You can guess what happens next. Danielle Steel's Special Delivery is a bon-bon of a book only a mother could love. Well, not only, but especially--it's a paean to middle-aged romance, uxorial devotion, and maternal sacrifice.

Following her recent novels Silent Honor (1996) and The Ranch , Steel has written a shorter novel, similar in format to Five Days in Paris (1995). Amanda Robbins is a former actress who gave up her work when she married and had two children, settling into her role as wife and mother. Jack Watson is the father-in-law of Amanda's daughter, owns a trendy shop in Hollywood, and is an inveterate womanizer. Happily married, Amanda has no liking for Jack, until he provides emotional support following the sudden death of her husband. (See where this is going yet?) His support gradually changes her opinion, and as the two develop a deeper relationship, they are faced with family opposition and a surprising choice. Steel provides entertaining--but extremely light--reading. The characters are rather two-dimensional; the profound decisions reached by the two main characters come too easily to draw the reader into their lives; and the novel reads as though Steel rushed it to market. But it will be in demand by Steel fans, so purchase accordingly.

This was a GREAT story - especially good for those of us who are no longer teenagers. It is heartwarming and sweet and shows there is an exciting life after 30 (smile). Fast paced and hard to put down.

The party gave her a jumpstart on her lost social life plus she met a new man named Jack Watson, who was the father of her son-in-law. Jack was a boutique owner in Beverly Hills and was a swinging bachelor with a bad reputation. Amanda soon found him to be a charming gentleman.

The characters are all about a micron thick (maybe less), but there are greater crimes than obviousness, to be sure. This heaping teaspoon of glitz--every car's a Ferrari, every drink "French champagne"--will cheer Steel's legions of readers. Mission accomplished,
