"In a wickedly funny, right-on-target look at finding the perfect mate in an imperfect world, bestselling novelist Danielle Steel reveals insights into the human heart that have made her novels #1 bestsellers around the world." (book jacket)
A high-tech love story, in a wickedly funny, right on target look at finding a perfect mate in an imperfect world. Makes you think...what if.
Really good read. Strange and held my interest.
The subtitle, "A High Tech Love Story," need not frighten Steel's loyal fans. More fanciful than technologically snappy, this novel (her 42nd, after The Long Road Home) grafts one scientific wrinkle onto the usual romance. Stunned when her feckless husband declares that their companionable but passionless marriage is over (then sues her for alimony and child support), 41-year-old Stephanie spends the next year improving both her body and her self-respect. During a trip to Paris, she attracts a suitor; Peter Baker is a fellow New Yorker?and everything Stephanie's been hoping for. After a chaste but exhilarating evening together, Stephanie is sure that she'll never see him again, but he tracks her down in the Hamptons and they fall in love. An executive at a company specializing in bionics, Peter has been working on a secret invention. When he travels to California on business, his creation, Paul Klone, turns up at Stephanie's door. Paul is a physical replica of Peter, but the resemblance ends there. Whereas Peter favors Oxford shirts and khakis, Paul is a fan of Versace's most outlandish creations. Although she has been pleased with Peter's lovemaking, Paul's triple back flips during sex leave Stephanie singing the body electric. When Peter becomes jealous of Paul, things get sticky. Although the SF element is minimal (approximately one part Ray Bradbury to 35 parts Steel), Steel's speculative whimsy spices her romantic concoction to produce a light but charming read.
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY REVIEW
This is a different style for Steel to write. I thought it was funny and a fast afternoon read. A must read for sheer entertainment.
This was just a little weird! Who would actually have sex with a manufactured klone? Anyway...the klone was amusing enough as a character to make it entertaining, even if far-fetched!
A very funny book! I laughed so much on this one.
Love this as all steele books
Oh, what can you say about Danielle Steel that hasn't already been said before? This book is a bit different from some of her other work, which is refreshing. Hilarious adventure, romance with a clone of a lover - which results in an interesting love triangle.
Stephanie had a rat for a husband. But after thirteen years of marriage and two kids, she was devastated when he left her for a younger woman. Suddenly Stephanie was alone. And after months of trying to find a little romance on New York's wild singles circuit, she was ready to give up, reconciled to just raising her two great, but outspoken, kids. Then a spur-of-the-moment trip to Paris changed everything.
She met him on the Left Bank. Peter Baker was a marvelously handsome high-tech entrepreneur also visiting the city. Stephaine was certain it couldn't possibly work. Peter was just too perfect. But much to her amazement, he contacted her when they returned to New York. And at the Long Island rental cottage she shared with her kids, Stephanie embarked on a bizarre and hilarious adventure beyond her wildest dreams.
Shy, serous Peter, chairman of a bionic enterprise, was supposed to be away on business. Instead, he's standing at her door, wearing Day-Glo satin and rhinestones. Naturally, Stephanie thinks it's a joke -- until the truth suddenly dawns; this isn't Peter playing a role. This is his double! Calling himself Paul Klone, this wild, uninhibited creature isn't even remotely like Peter except for his identically sexy good looks. This uproarious novel explores the outrageous love triangle that develops between Stephaine, Peter . . . and The Klone.
In a wickedly funny, right-on target looking at finding the perfect mate in an imperfect world, bestselling novelist Danielle Steel reveals insights into the human heart that have made her novels #1 bestsellers around the world.
