Publisher's Summary

Coco Barrington was born into a legendary Hollywood family: her mother Florence is a mega-best-selling author, and her sister Jane is one of Hollywood's top producers. Jane has lived with her partner, Liz, for 10 years, in a solid relationship. Florence, widowed but still radiant, has just begun a secret romance with a man 24 years her junior. And Coco, a law school dropout and the family black sheep, works as a dog walker, having fled life in the spotlight for the artsy northern California beach town of Bolinas.When Coco reluctantly agrees to house-sit in Jane's luxurious home, it turns out Jane's house comes complete with an unexpected houseguest: Leslie Baxter, a dashing but down-to-earth British actor who's fleeing a psycho ex-girlfriend. Their worlds couldn't be more different. The attraction couldn't be more immediate.Suddenly Coco is seeing things differently: Leslie is not just a celebrity, he's a single dad to an adorable six-year-old girl. Her mother is a woman in love, with vulnerability and new insight. And Jane and Liz are about to take the bravest plunge of all - into parenthood.As Coco contemplates a future with one of Hollywood's hottest stars, as her mother and sister settle into their lives, old wounds are healed and new families are formed - all bonded by love.With wit and intelligence, Danielle Steel explores love in all its guises, taking us into the lives of three unusual but wonderfully real couples. One Day at a Time is at once moving, thought provoking, and utterly impossible to put down.

Difficult to finish

I am having difficulty finishing this book. I read some of Steel's books when I was younger, and really liked some of them (e.g. "Loving") but not others (e.g. "The Promise"). This one was boring and repetitive - you would have one character complaining about something over and over and over and over... I am not sure where the story is going. I am half-way through, and if it wasn't for the pleasantness and sweetness of the narrator I would not even attempt to finish it

Great story

I liked all of the characters in the book and was glad to see that each of them had a happy ending.
