I used to read all of Danielle Steel’s books when I was in my 30’s because I loved the romance and the happy endings. But as I aged, I noticed that the books had become formulaic, and I stopped reading them because they became an annoying waste of time. When I read a blurb about this book, I decided that I needed to read it because it was about a writer of crime fiction, my favorite genre. This book did not disappoint. Yes, it is sappy with romance, but it is also the fascinating tale of a young girl who faces and overcomes many tragedies and becomes a bestselling author. I adored her character of the editor who was like a curmudgeon who needed a friend and Alex, the budding author, befriends him. The whole story was well written, with a well-developed and actually intricate plot that encompassed forty years in the life of an author with a great talent. Believable characters and happy ending!
