When a letter from his supposedly deceased mother finds its way into his hands, life changes in an instant for international pop star Bodhi Beckett. Reeling from the deception of those closest to him, Bodhi spirals out of control and is sent to a secluded mansion in the coastal mountains of Southern California for some rest and relaxation. But the retreat proves to be anything but relaxing when a raging wildfire sets the landscape around him ablaze. While escaping the flames, Bodhi rescues Breeze, a quirky, pet-loving woman, and together the two fight their way to safety.

Wow! After reading the Cake series I was really looking forward to this book. The beginning grabs you and pulls you in and then.....nothing. I’m sorry to say the story was very juvenile with no heart and the characters were so underdeveloped. The romance was not believable at all. The writing itself was pretty sub par and I was overall so disappointed. This book is nowhere near the caliber of story from the Cake series.

Beauchamp Hall is a spellbinding new novel from Danielle Steel, whose countless number-one New York Times best-sellers have made her one of America's favorite storytellers.

This was the most lack luster, boring, no -imaginative book I’ve read in a very long time. I couldn’t believe when the sort was over. I thought it was just getting going!

Dr. Kelly Hall had lost all hope of ever having a family - until single father Tanner Malone burst into her hospital, asking her how to raise his newborn daughter. What else could she do, so soon before Christmas, but lend her expertise to the gorgeous contractor? His charming smiles and come-hither glances draw her like a moth to a flame, but she's in no position to get involved with anyone. After a devastating heartbreak, Kelly has given up on happiness.

This book is shallow with absolutely no character development. It could have been such a cute book with tales of a new father dealing with a newborn. But the baby was never the focus. In fact, not sure what the focus was. Don’t waste your time

Too many characters and stories. This would have been better written as a series where each story and line of characters could have been better explored. Pretty disappointing

Divorce attorney Harper James can't catch a break. Bad enough that she runs into her ex-hubby, Nick, at her sister's destination wedding, but now, by a cruel twist of fate, she's being forced to make a cross-country road trip with him. And her almost-fiancé back at home is not likely to be sympathetic.

I love reading this author when I need a chuckle and a break from "heavier" stories. This story was cute, sincere and just a lot of fun. Xe Sands is one of my favorite narrators. She always manages to bring a book to life and her comedic timing is spot on. Enjoyable read

Mary enjoys her predictable, satisfying life in Butler. If it's a little lacking in excitement, that's okay with her. But after meeting Patrick and getting to know him better at his daughter's wedding, Mary is intrigued by the well-known, sexy billionaire businessman. Patrick is equally intrigued. For the first time since he lost his wife 30 years ago, he has met a woman who makes him feel less lonely, and all he wants is more of his Sweet Mary from Vermont. Flirty phone calls become a weekend away together that takes his relationship with Mary to the next level.

I generally like to read Marie Force but this book was awful. Story was shallow, characters were shallow, reader was terrible. There was no substance to the characters or the story. I didn't believe their love story because no story was told. It could have been so interesting to have Mary trying to fit into another world and all the tribulation that goes with that. But there was nothing! Hope the next story has more depth.
