I have read all of her books but I swear this is a repeat story line. From the greedy husband right to the purchased houses !! If Danielle Steel didn't write a book with the almost exact story line it has been copied from another author. Someone please tell me I am not crazy.....
edit - Leap of Faith - also Danielle Steele same story
I hated that she had so many men through-out the story. It was as if she felt her life wasn't worth living without one...but then on the other hand maybe it was the loss of her parents, in such a violent way, that made her feel so desperate.
Before Coco Martin enters her senior year at Columbia, she plans to spend the summer working at Time as an intern. It prevents her from going to Europe with her parents like she usually does, but she doesn’t mind since she’s looking forward to this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Besides, she has Sam, her best friend since fourth grade, and they can spend the weekends at her family’s beach house in Southampton.
As the duo returns from the beach one weekend, they learn that there was a massive terrorist attack in France and that her parents were two of the people killed in the explosion. It is a nightmare that Coco never saw coming. The two people she loves most in the world are now dead, leaving her with no family whatsoever, only Sam, and neither feels particularly grown up yet.
Devastated, Coco buries her family and inherits a fortune. But her beauty, wealth, and innocence make her a target for bad men. Eager to make her parents proud, she must learn to navigate life, live by her own rules and think outside the box. Doing so will take an impressive amount of inner strength, and the help of very good friends, if she’s ever going to see beyond the world’s glitz and discover what truly matters.
With ALL THAT GLITTERS, Danielle Steel once again draws us into a world populated by the rich and powerful and shows us that money alone doesn’t guarantee happiness, and everything but our personal integrity can be taken from us at a moment’s notice. She whisks us from New York to London, Paris, and beyond as Coco forges her way through life, drawn from one enigmatic man to the next like a moth to a flame.
ALL THAT GLITTERS is a parable for our time, a lesson that begs us to slow down and remember that real happiness comes when we find balance in our lives, learn to enjoy the exciting moments even as we come to appreciate the security that comes from friendship, simplicity, and joy. As always, Steel manages to peer into our heart of hearts, to see what we yearn for and believe in, even in the midst of chaos. Most of all, she reminds us to never, ever, give up. There are better days ahead!
[As originally published at JathanandHeather.com]
Coco is on the verge of graduating from college and stepping into the big bad world with a dream internship when life as she knew it is ripped from her in one fell swoop with her parents being killed in a foreign terrorist attach while traveling. The emotion is high and love and sadness prevail as she tries to pick up the pieces of her future without her two stabilizers.
She portrays a loyalty that shines bright when showcasing the relationship she has shared over the years with her best friend Sam. Her career ambition is strong, but she keeps her eyes open as different facets of the field intrigue her. Her only weakness is her quickness to succumb to the wrong type of men and inability to stand on her own without one by her side.
I enjoyed the book and recommend it to anyone who wants an easy read without a lot of interwoven drama and saga like storyline.

However, even so the book sort of grew on me. I lost myself in the story. Maybe it was partly because I found so much of myself in it. Falling for flashy guys is something many women tend to do. But Danielle Steel always puts a lot of wisdom in her stories, no matter how superficial and fancy the circumstances. She has obviously experienced a lot in her life and as always I found several sentences I wanted to underline as of special importance to me.
I have read all Steel's books. Some old ones I'm reading a second time. There is a reason Steel is read and loved by so many. She is a brilliant storyteller and in later years has put a lot of life's wisdom into her books.I don't mind that her stories usually take place in affluent surroundings. I know it's not for all of us just to buy a ticket to Rome or Paris and spend a week end there in an expensive hotel. Most of us do not meet a client at our workplace who asks us out to the best restaurants and fly us in their own plane to their house in the Carribean and the South of France etc. etc. But you know what, I love to read about it. Love to read about excessive beauty and luxury and finding the nearest Chanel store to buy a new dress when I am unexpectedly invited to a grand dinner.
A ds book always ends well. The heroines always have good sense and end up embracing life's true values which are warm and loving and do not glitter. Danielle Steel is a master of fairytales for grownups. I have loved fairytales since I was a little girl and am happy to have found an author to write them for me also as I am well into my old age. Thank you, Danielle, and keep on the good work
PS) I have given the book four stars just because it's not one of your best, but it is still very, very good.
