Author: Danielle Steel
Publisher: Delacorte Press
My Rating: 3 out of 5
- If you’re picking this because you think it’s going to be one hell of a webbed mystery, then you should put it down.
- If you’re picking this up thinking there will be sneaky romances and steamy sex triangles, you’re wrong again and must put it back right away.
- Just in case you pick it up without following the cover and just randomly assume it to be a simple read about the life of a woman who gets betrayed by people most dear to her and then goes on to mend her life after that, then you may be at the right place.
Tallie Jones is a famous director, rich and beautiful, but she lives a totally opposite and simple life. She has a boyfriend, a personal assistant cum friend in need, a reliable auditor, an aging father and a sweet daughter. Her life is perfect and then she gets to know about a betrayal, followed by another one by somebody very close to her. She goes on to find who it is and this happens quite early in the story. She shuns the person out of her life, tries to forget and concentrate on her work. She finds love and happiness again, makes sure the culprit is punished for the betrayal and that’s all….puff…The End.
When I picked up this novel I was expecting some intense love triangles if not a touchy family disloyalty. Unfortunately it contained none and instead turned out to be story of a woman and her journey to start loving and trusting again after her trust is shattered. It’s a nice story, but it could have ended earlier than it does had the author not exaggerated and repeated unnecessary descriptions.
It gets a 3 out of 5 stars from me.
