Danielle Steel is one of my favorite authors, and I have read all of her books. I wouldn't think any book could be better than what she has already written, but she absolutely did it with this book. There were times during the novel, I thought I was reading John Grisham, another favorite author of mine. This book has some legal drama in it, along with her typical web of relationships. This is definitely a must read from her if you like Danielle Steel at all, and even if you have never read one of her books, this would be a great place to start!

I've read just about all of Steel's novels. This one is probably the best one she's written in a long time. It's that good, that I'm taking the time to leave a review. I highly recommend!
I've been a reader of Danielle Steel's books for years but Southern Lights will be the last book of hers that I read. I struggled to get through this south bashing diatribe but did finish, and immediately posted if on Paperback Swap to get rid of the vile thing. It was horrible and I wouldn't recommend it for anyone to read. I don't know where she came up with this warped view of the south but I was terribly offended. In my part of the south "bless your heart" definitely does not mean I hate your guts. But in this case I will use Danielle Steel's definition of the phrase...."I did not enjoy Ms Steel's book, bless her heart." Even if you leave out the southern hating (and that would leave just a tiny little novella) this book is horribly lacking in plot!
