Publisher's Summary

Paris, L.A., and the world of ready to wear fashion provide rich backdrops for Danielle Steel’s deeply involving story of a gifted designer whose talent and drive have brought her everything - except the ability to erase her past and trust relationships. New York. London. Milan. Paris. Fashion Week in all four cities. A month of endless interviews, parties, and unflagging work and attention to detail at the semiannual ready to wear fashion shows - the famous prêt-à-porter.

At the center of the storm and avalanche of work is American Timmie O’Neill, whose renowned line, Timmie O, is the embodiment of casual chic, in fashion and for the home. She has created a business that inspires, fills, and consumes her life. With an unerring instinct for what the next trend will be, an innate genius for business, tireless labor, and sheer fearlessness, starting from nothing, over two decades Timmie has built an international empire that has brought her enormous satisfaction and success.

In a world where humility and compassion are all too rare, her humor, kindness, integrity, and creativity are inspirational. Yet as blessed as she feels by her success, Timmie harbors the private wounds of a devastating childhood and past tragedy. She is too smart, too experienced, and too hurt to want much in her personal life beyond a succession of convenient, very limited relationships. Always willing to take risks in business, she never risks her heart. But despite her well-ordered and highly controlled world, it turns out that Timmie O’Neill is not immune to magic when it strikes. And it strikes in Paris during Paris Fashion Week, when an intriguing Frenchman comes into her life when she gets sick.

    "Maybe one novel too many...."
    Would you ever listen to anything by Danielle Steel again?

    I have been reading and listening to Danielle Steel for most of my adult life and have absolutely loved most of her early books. I am so disappointed in this predictable and repetitve story though. From almost the outset it was clear what the outcome would be.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrators voice was nothing special and I am suprised that Audible feels that Danielle Steel's novels should be read by males all the time.


    Any additional comments?

    Danielle Steel is now just writing to turn out books not so much as to entertain her audience. If you want to read/hear the real Danielle Steel listen to her early books and really enjoy what this author is capable of..

    "So disappointing"

    I have continued to buy almost every Danielle Steel book on audible. I loved The Sins of the Mother one of my favourites however it is very hit and miss now if they are good or a waste of time. To me this book was that. I cannot get past the first two chapters. There is just nothing to keep my interest the story is boring. The narrater is possibly the worst choice for any book. He sounds as if he is almost asleep his monotone voice with no expression is just not suitable.

    I cannot understand along with many others comments on Danielle Steel reviews why Audible choose men for her books. The occasional male voice has worked for me but I find a female voice suits this type of book so much more.

    I think I am done on her books after this one and the last one which I did not buy just listening to the preview was bad enough.

    Danielle Steel books used to be a given you would enjoy them now it is just hit and miss. There are so many better authors out there now who are writing good books.

    "Great book"

    I am pretty sure the narrator was chosen because he has a French accent and did a great job with Jean-Charles accent, but made his voice sound like he was in his eighties and not in his fifties. Otherwise the narrator did a great job with Timmies' voice and the others. Danielle Steel created a great book and she always has great endings from the her books that I have read, and this one is also great and has an unpredictable ending.

    "Never disappointed before...but"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, if they are a Danielle Steel fan, but to read, not on Audible.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Timmie's mother being alive.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Mr. Morey was just not the best fit for this particular type of story.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, because a screen play would tighten it up.
