I love the typical affluent family dramas Danielle is so good at! This is another look into the typical "Charleston" character traits, (snooty) and the contrasting professional New York life. This is about a single Mom of a 17 year old daughter, Alexa Hamilton, who is also a NY Assistant District Attorney who is tackling a frightening case of an alleged serial killer and rapist. Circumstances convince Alexa to pack her daughter back to Charleston to her daughter's father temporarily...secrets are exposed and bonds are allowed to develop which lead to purely exciting storyline! You won't regret the purchase! Some other books I'd like to share that I loved...below..

New York Assistant District Attorney Alexa Hamilton is assigned the lead of prosecuting alleged serial killer Luke Quentin of rape and murder. The case is loaded with forensic evidence that Alexa sifts through diligently until the single mom is distracted when her seventeen year old daughter Savannah begins receiving letters threatening to harm her. Alexa assumes Luke or an ally is behind the nasty threats. Alexa asks her former spouse Tom Beaumont, who lives in Charleston, to keep their teenage child Savannah with him and presumably safe. His current wife who was also his first spouse objects to the intruder from his in between marriage, but Tom ignores her complaints and that of his upper crust family. As Savannah becomes closer to her dad and step-siblings, Alexa also begins to feel better about her relationships especially after meeting Edward. Although wrapped inside a serial killer legal thriller, SOUTHERN LIGHTS remains more a typical Danielle Steel affluent family drama as the focus is on how everyone in the extended Beaumont-Hamilton circles interrelate or do not. Entertaining especially for fans of Ms. Steel, the threatening letters subplot takes a back seat to the Alexa personal drama. Harriet Klausner

I'm so sorry to be the downer here, but this was the worst DS I've ever read. I kept waiting for something to happen. I kept reading because I just KNEW something was about to REALLY happen. It never did! I used to love DS, now I can't trust her obvious ghost writers. If you loved the old school novels by DS (Secrets, Wanderlust, Kalidoscope, The Ring, Thurston House, among many great others) you will be left asking what in the world this garbage was. Sorry, but its true.

I loved this book! And I absolutely loved the ending. Sometimes although I like her books, I hate the endings and who they end up with. Except in this one, I thought it was perfect. I loved the bond between Alexa and Savannah and them with Muriel. I also loved how Savannah formed a bond with Daisy. I thought it was great and I'm really glad I read it.

I could hear some of that southern charm in my head. I loved hearing the characters talk back and forth to each other. The story between the characters and their relationships is strong, but the development of the trial with the serial killer and legal mumbo jumbo is not as strong. I would have liked to have had more information about that part of the plot.

Ms. Steel needs a lesson in grammar. Unbelievably bad writing. Although the story could have been interesting, it was tediously repetitive, sometimes just unbelievable and very predictable.

I loved this book. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. I am looking forward to the next book I am going to read.

This is not a typical cookie-cutter novel. The storyline is engaging, there is a lot of suspense, and this book held my attention all the way through. The characters are great! You can feel how torn the mother is between her job and her daughter, and you can't help but cheer for the good guys all the way through. This is a deviation from Ms. Steel's recent books, and that is a good thing. She scores a homerun with this one!

I loved "Big Girl" it was a little different story line of most all of her other books. I have read everyone of Danielle Steel's books and loved everyone of them,some more than others. I have never been disappointed with anyone of her books.

I thoroughly enjoyed the plot, the characters, and the setting. I can relate. I began reading and could not put it down, you just wanted to know what was going to happen next.

I was a Danielle Steel fan and have read almost all of her books. Loved them all....until now. This book is terribly written and just comes off like perhaps Ms. Steel has a personal axe to grind. Some southern belle may have "stole her man" and perhaps she wrote this drivel to make herself feel better. Whatever the reason...this book is just a constant beating drum of how awful all Southerners are in every way possible. Over and over, page after page. No twists and turns in this story. It's boring and predictable from beginning to end. A total waste of time and money.

Typical not intriguing

Daniele Steel had a thought about a book with a beginning and an ending, and then filled up the middle (300+ pages) with a bunch of redundant sentences. It told over and over and over again about how the husband left her for his first wife that left him and how much the first wife hated his and her daughter. She said both about a thousand times, a thousand different ways. Enough already. After the first chapter, the book went into the bathroom. That's where all of my boring books go to read when I'm stuck and have nothing to do but read anything.

Danielle Steele's Southern Lights is a wonderful book. What I like about her characters in her books are strong women.

I've read all the Danielle Steel books and Southern Lights is very different from all her other books. I really enjoyed it.
