After reading some of the other reviews I thought this might finally be the Danielle Steel novel I have been waiting for. I have been reading her books since I was a teenager and they were passed on to me by my grandmother and have been very disappointed over the last 5-10 years. I still read them everytime they come out, out of loyalty, but always feel as if her books could be so much better if she would spend a little more time on them. I always feel as if they are rushed, ruining what could have been a really great novel. This book was no different. Overall, it was a good book and kept me interested but was not the book I had to stay up all night to finish. The book could have been so much better if she spent a little more time adding some emotion and detail.
The entirety of this book could have been written in 50 pages. So much of this was repetetive and I found myself feeling obligated to finish it instead of enjoying the read. I just really felt like the author must not have put much effort into this one, sadly.
