Another one that is here to stay

I have read the outtake that was on the internet and I can hardly wait until I can purchase this for my collection. I believe the title 'The Cottage' really puts a wonderful view of brightly blooming flowers, fresh air and green meadows into my mind.

page turner

This was a good book. i would recommend it however i felt the book was lacking at the end... i was hoping for a little more. she gave a lot of detail in the begining and middle of the book maybe even TOO much and you would have thought that she would have finished it in...

    PREDICTABLE

    I love Danielle Steele but this book was sort of boring. Her earlier books is what made me a fan. Maybe if she takes a break and stop writing so much, her future books won't be so predictable.

    Not what I was expecting

    This is the first Danielle Steel book I've ever read and judging from her reputation I was expecting more that what I got from this book. The characters were shallow and their actions were unrealistic. When I finish a book I usually feel like I'm losing a friend becuase I get so wrapped up in the characters. When I finished this book the only emotion I felt was disappointment. The characters were paired of in an unnatural manner and I did not feel connected. There was also a lot of unnecessary repetition that threw me off course when I would have to read back and make sure that there really was that much repetitiona dn I was not just loosing my mind. All in all the idea behind the book was interesting, but it appeared to be hastily written with little thought about being believable.

    Dull

    If you can get past the description of Cooper Winslow in the beginning without wanting to toss your cookies you're doing good. I used to be a fan of Danielle Steele's but lately it seems to me that she is just churning these books out without a whole lot of thought as to whether they are really good or not. Thumbs down from me on this one.
