This is so not a disaster book. What could have been a great departure for Danielle Steel is just another thinly veiled beautiful woman story who loses almost everything but also manages to find an amazing apartment in NYC after a hurricane that only lasts for about three chapters. Seriously? Just don’t even pick it up.
What I loved: The dogs don’t die in the book. Thank goodness. Nothing else.
What I didn’t love: Let’s see…why have additional characters (Juliette, Charles, and Peter) if their story is only mentioned for one chapter out of every 15. And why no mention of Ellen’s mother Grace in the cover preview – she’s more of a main character than the other two and just as annoying.
What I learned: Only beautiful people get affected by hurricanes and other natural disasters. Oh – and I need more insurance.
Overall Grade: F
