When Coco reluctantly agrees to house-sit in Jane's luxurious home, it turns out Jane's house comes complete with an unexpected houseguest: Leslie Baxter, a dashing but down-to-earth British actor who's fleeing a psycho ex-girlfriend. Their worlds couldn't be more different. The attraction couldn't be more immediate.
Suddenly Coco is seeing things differently: Leslie is not just a celebrity, he's a single dad to an adorable six-year-old girl. Her mother is a woman in love, with vulnerability and new insight. And Jane and Liz are about to take the bravest plunge of all - into parenthood.
As Coco contemplates a future with one of Hollywood's hottest stars, as her mother and sister settle into their lives, old wounds are healed and new families are formed - all bonded by love.
With wit and intelligence, Danielle Steel explores love in all its guises, taking us into the lives of three unusual but wonderfully real couples. One Day at a Time is at once moving, thought provoking, and utterly impossible to put down.

I am having difficulty finishing this book. I read some of Steel's books when I was younger, and really liked some of them (e.g. "Loving") but not others (e.g. "The Promise"). This one was boring and repetitive - you would have one character complaining about something over and over and over and over... I am not sure where the story is going. I am half-way through, and if it wasn't for the pleasantness and sweetness of the narrator I would not even attempt to finish it
Danielle does not disappoint once again!
She continues to provide us with an enjoyable story.
Steel writes as if she is talking to children. I could hardly get through the book. First and last time I will get her books. It's boring and insulting.
I liked all of the characters in the book and was glad to see that each of them had a happy ending.
Holy cow what a disaster...probably the worst book i have ever listened to. The ultimate "chick flick". WOW what a disaster.
I haven't read a Danielle Steele novel in about 20 years, used to love them for a quick read. I picked this one for something in the car, and apparently my tastes have changed. The storyline is good, regular, sappy love story but didn't like all the "sidetrips" the author takes while telling the story. There seem to be many spots, she is narrating the story, then goes off to give more details on something about one of the characters that is too much information, so it makes the reading a little monotonous. If you like this genre, then you will probably like this one.
Although the leading female character is a bit of a wimp, this book wasn't bad overall. The male lead character was endearing. Strong supporting characters added to the story. Good narration.
The story was WAY too predictable. No excitement.
Didn't like the man reading the story. He didn't do the woman's voices justice.
A silly, sappy, predictable love story with shallow one-dimensional characters. The conflicts between characters are contrived and there is no real tension. The narrator's voice is cringe-worthy in some sections.
"Dick Van Dyke Accents Ahoy!"
OK, ignoring the fact that the guy does a really bad English accent - this is a nice, wee, romance. A daughter from a famous LA family prefers to live out of the limelight, but when she falls for a major movie star, there is not a lot she can do to avoid the press.
