Like the rest of her novels, Steel’s 46th testifies to the insatiable appetite for unrequited love and the success of TV’s Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. Meet India Taylor, the coulda-woulda-shoulda been a Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist if it wasn’t for her meddling husband. Although they met in the Peace Corps 20 years prior, Doug insisted she put down the camera, pick up a broom, and raise four kids in the comfy Connecticut burbs. However, after 17 years of carpooling, Little League, and Doug’s revelation that he’s happy with a platonic marriage, India moves on to greener pastures. She finds her cash cow in the form of Paul Ward, a.k.a. “Lion of Wall Street,” who has a yacht called the Sea Star and likes to coo such things as “I think I’m a little crazy, but I love you.” Although he may be senile and she is still married, the duo seem destined for each other as Paul slowly helps India reclaim her past and follow her passion. What’s not to love about Danielle Steel? She starts so many sentences with the word and that you start to do it yourself. And there’s a run-on quality to the narrator’s consciousness. But she drips glamour, drops famous names better than Robin Leach, and makes those pages fly so fast they cool your face on the hottest beach.
