Very predictable. Quick read since I actually skimmed it as it wasn't very good at all. Silly conversations, no real plot, just how important this debutante ball was again and again. Characters aren't developed so you don't really come to care for any of them, though could be due to the short length of the book. Definitely not one of her best, though her newer books pale in comparison to her old ones. I can't say I recommend this one, though not as bad as Impossible was.
I enjoyed Ms. Steel's earlier work, but have been utterly dismayed by the quality of her more recent books including this one. It's a fine beach read but nothing more.
Another book by Steele about the rich and privileged, where the main problem is whether "coming out" at the debutante ball is too old fashioned, socially or ethnically biased. Oh my, to have such a problem! All to be decided while jetting to Aspen over Christmas and Europe in the summer! Every few years, I forget and read one of her books and it amazes me that she remains so popular.
Not as good as her others. A little slow, but a decent book.
It had been years and years since I picked up a Danielle Steele book, so I decided to try this one. Now I remember why I stopped reading her novels! Her sentences are short, she "tells" everything but "shows" nothing, and the premise is paper-thin. I knew the way the book would turn out by the third page. It makes me wonder: How in the world did this woman get published in the first place?
If you want an example of how NOT to write, this is the book for you.
