A dazzling contemporary novel that vividly portrays the glamorous White Dinners that occur annually in Paris, and the ups and downs of three interconnected couples for whom the dinners have become a tradition, from #1 New York Times bestselling author Danielle Steel.
The White Dinner is a love poem to friendship, joy, elegance, and the monuments of Paris. And each year it is an unforgettable summer night, especially for Jean-Philippe Dumas, a longtime participant, and the three couples he's carefully selected to attend this exclusive and cherished event. Interweaving the stories of seven individuals, lives will be forever changed on the eve of one such White Dinner; a night that will lead to new friendships, new love, and of course, magical possibilities.

Based in Paris I am grateful it was an audio book. I would have had difficulty reading names and locations. Excellent storyline; wouldn't expect anything less from Danielle.
Parts of the book were really good. The whole thing was pretty predictable and the ending wasn't anything special, there wasn't any "Magic". Usually I enjoy reading her books over and over, but not this one. The narrator did an excellent job!
Like it's title, this book is pure Magic. Danielle Steel is my all time favorite author. I can't wait until the next book. Do yourself a favor and get this book.
I was very disappointed in this book. There was no plot and zero surprises. All characters do exactly what you think they will do. The entire novel is written from third person so you never actually hear from the characters themselves. I would not waste money or a credit on this book again. I expected much more from Danielle Steel and an extremely disappointed in this book.
This book was confusing to me. I had to check and see if she co-authored it with someone because the writing was so poor. I have never heard so many "ands" in a book. I'm not sure if they were run-on sentences or if the sentences began with "and," but either way it was incredibly distracting. Also, the choice of narrator was baffling to me. I can see this gentleman reading a thriller, but he was an awful choice for a love story. If you can get past the "ands" and expecting someone to get stabbed, it was a sweet story.
Xcellent story.. Perfectly narrated.. Magical twist in each story step.. Love D. S
"More "Magic" from Danielle"
I listen to every Danielle Steel novel, and she is prolific, I think this is her fourth one this year! MAGIC does not disappoint. It wouldn't be in my top 10 favourites of hers, but, as usual, it kept me interested and carried me away from my every day life.
The narrator was excellent. And Danielle gives us a flavour of different lives, around the globe this time, in Paris, Berlin, China, and India.
