Danielle Steel is my Favorite Romance Author
I love to read all types of books and on an average month I will read four to five books from various genres. The one exception to my reading habit happened when I was working full time.
Before I retired, I worked in the tax industry for 30 years. During these years I was very busy during tax season from January to April. I would work many long hours and when I got home or to my hotel room I would want to relax with a good book. I started many books during tax season but could never concentrate enough to finish a book. I would always find my mind wandering back to a situation in one of my offices and I would finally give up and put the book down. This changed when I was first introduced to books by Danielle Steel. She is the one author I could always read even when I had many other things on my mind. Now that I'm retired I find Danielle Steel a great escape when life gets hectic.
Danielle Steel's books are a great form of escape. They are easy to read and fairly short and they transfer me to a another world. Most of her books have a heroine who is rich and or famous and have some conflict that has come into her life. Over the years I have read most of Steel's romance novels, all of which have become best sellers. She is often accused of writing "fluff", but I will have to say it is "fluff" that has gotten me through many reading blocks.
Winners: A Novel is one of Steel's latest novels. In this book Lily, a champion skier with Olympic aspirations has her life changed forever when she has a tragic accident. Danielle Steel brings you into the story and the lives of Lily and those people she encounters during her recovery. It is a compelling book and like most of Steel's books I read this book in one sitting. It is just one of those books you can't put down.
