Every woman makes choices. And no one has made more difficult choices than Olivia Grayson. The enormously successful businesswoman missed out on much of her children’s lives while she built her legendary home-furnishings empire. In Danielle Steel’s character-rich novel, Olivia faces the past, tries to balance the present and make amends where due, while still running her vastly successful business. As a way of making up to them for time lost, Olivia spends months each year planning a holiday that everyone in her family will enjoy.

Characters were pretentious and not very likable. The story line was predictable. The grandiose descriptions of the characters was repeated many times. And of course, everyone lived happily after ever. What a waste of time.

Haunted by the responsibility of caring for her troubled family, Maya Jacobs gave the only answer she could when Cameron asked her to marry him. Years later, entrenched in a soulless professional routine, she distracts herself from the lingering regret of her decision with a "work hard, play hard" lifestyle that guarantees no man will ever find his way into her heart again.

Would you try another book from Meredith Wild and/or Jennifer Mack and William Munt ?

No - did not like the story, the characters, and hated the overdramatized narrations by William Munt.

Would you ever listen to anything by Meredith Wild again?

No

What didn’t you like about Jennifer Mack and William Munt ’s performance?

The male character was narrated by Jennifer Mack and William Munt.. This was confusing as Jennifer had a lighter male voice and William had an over exaggerated gruff male voice for the character. When listening to a book, you expect the characters to be narrated by the same person throughout.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No, I was hoping for romance, but the characters were weak and not that likeable. The book focused on extensive sex scenes with very little romance. About half way through, it was obvious what was going to happen.

Any additional comments?

I selected this book because of its rating. This was a waste of my time and money.
