Publisher's Summary

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.

Another Winner for Danielle Steele

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.

Not her best

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.

Don't waste your money or a credit....

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.

good book didn't like the female version voice.

book was good. female voice came across as someone impersonating someone when they were putting them down. didn't like it at all. will probably avoid this reader.

Can't get past the 'female' voice...

I enjoyed the multiple story lines but I can't get past the male doing to the female voices.. Fred Armisen's female characters on SNL...youtube it!...spot on voice for Shantalle LOL. I wish they would have male and female narrator'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.
