Publisher's Summary

As editor-in-chief of New York's leading fashion magazine, Fiona Monaghan was utterly content with her life, jetting back and forth between Manhattan and Europe, until the sweltering day John Anderson strolled into her office. After a dinner date left them both wanting more, Fiona impulsively invited John to the Paris couture shows. And in the most romantic city in the world, somewhere between the magic of the runway and the stroll along the Seine, Fiona let this man into her heart. A widower with two daughters, John Anderson was nearly Fiona's opposite in every way. As conservative as she was freewheeling, John was both amused and appalled by Fiona's world of high-strung designers, anorexic models, and high-heeled housemen. But within weeks of their return to New York, John was making friends with Fiona's snoring bulldog, Sir Winston, and Fiona was making room in her closets.
It didn't take long for the dominoes to start falling. First, John introduced Fiona to his daughters, their bloodthirsty Pekingese, and a snarling housekeeper straight out of Hitchcock's Rebecca. It was hate at first sight. Then, after a dinner party with John's biggest client goes disastrously awry, Fiona and John's relationship began to unravel with alarming speed. What happens next will set Fiona on a journey filled with pain and revelation, awakening and change. For when she returns to Paris alone and takes an amazing risk, an extraordinary series of events begins to unfold. And as the snow falls on the city of light, Fiona is about to get the surprise of her life: a second act she never saw coming.
In a dazzling tale of modern misadventures and career-crossed relationships, Danielle Steel brings us into the lives of two unforgettable people as they love and laugh, struggle and survive. With unerring insight, she captures the heady magic of instant attraction, the challenges of change, and the hope that comes when we dare to do it all over again.

Too Old to be so Naive

Some of the things happening seemed out of place in this day and age. Fiona seemed lively in her life but the character was broke down too far imo. Her love for dogs would have won the girls dog over and no one in this world would be okay with being bit twice. performance of John made him seem weak and monotone.

One of Danielle's Best

I listen to Danielle Steel a lot because of the satisfying feel good factor that she always delivers. This book is one of her best. It has a page turning brisk plot and lots of satisfying characters. It has ups and downs and lessons learned and a cute bulldog to round off the usual Steel factor novel. Well worth a listen especially as the narrator does an excellent job. So. If you're a DS fan you will be delighted with this one!
