Paris Armstrong never saw it coming. With two grown children and a lovely home in Connecticut, Paris was happy with her marriage, her family, her life. So when her husband of 24 years said they needed to talk, Paris couldn't imagine what he was about to say.

I want a divorce, Peter told her. Just like that, the husband she adored had dumped her for a younger woman, leaving Paris to pick up the pieces of a shattered life. Then the excruciating attempts by well-meaning friends to fix her up. Worse yet, she still loved Peter. Drastic measures were called for. It was time to move - as far away as possible.

Heading west to San Francisco, Paris discovers a world full of men too young, too old, too married, or too good to be true, and with her dating game score hovering between disappointing and disastrous - and her daughter now engaged to a man Paris' age - Paris determines that romance is not in her future. That's when her small circle of offbeat, loving friends becomes more important than ever before. And Paris discovers that that the secret of happiness is finding the gifts in life's unexpected twists and turns - turning despair into freedom and loss into joy. Download and start listening now!

    " I have never read a Danielle Steel novel and for some reason when I saw this in the free books bin at my local used book store I thought, "why HAVE I never read one of her books? She's published like a billion novels, surely she has to be somewhat readable" and I took it home. It sat on my shelf for months until I found myself between books and in need of something very unchallenging and remembered it was there. Well...I have now read a Danielle Steel novel. The story wasn't awful. It would have made a great chick flick or Lifetime movie, which is the stuff of a Steel novel right? But the writing...oh the writing. It was horrible. Just horrible. If Danielle Steel were in a middle school English class and I was her teacher, she would have failed. Just very basic grammar and rules of writing were completely dismissed. There wasn't a single page that didn't have at least one sentence beginning with the word "and." She changes perspective, sometimes mid-sentence. At times it was painful. But I could have really enjoyed it as a fluffy movie. (oh, and as a side note, there was exactly none of the steamy sex she is known for. Maybe one sentence of spicy.) "

    " This is a beautiful story about starting over to find new love after a twist of fate and a startling heartbreak. A touching story of second chances! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leah | 2/12/2014

    " I could have done without reading this crappy depressing book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 2/9/2014

    " I listened to this book on audio CD in my car on the way to work the last two weeks and really enjoyed the light, fluffy humor and romance. I consider Danielle Steel to be a really simple writer, without a whole lot of writing that makes you think too much and often, that's a great change of pace. My heart broke for the main character, Paris, when her husband told her he wanted a divorce after 24 years of marriage. However; the story takes you on a path that brings her through things that definitely change her life. Without giving away too much, she really finds herself and begins new adventures and endeavors throughout her "dating game." I loved the ending and I loved the light-hearted humor. I enjoyed the narrator of this book also; he did a great job! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Pate | 2/9/2014

    " Good story about a woman who tries to pick up the pieces from her broken marriage and move on. The break-up came after many years together and caught the woman completely off guard. The story was well-written and kept my interest in the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann Torrey | 1/18/2014

    " This was a good book but must admit a little childish in some areas with the dating but then again I been out of the dating scene for over 30 yrs. I really enjoyed the last few chapters and hated when it ended as I wanted it to keep going on. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Share | 1/18/2014

    " Same old Danielle Steel story. Although there were some good parts, most of it was a drag. You'll appreciate this story more if you're a divorcee looking for love. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evelyn Wilson | 1/13/2014

    " It is really scary when you are 46, married 24 years and your attorney husband decides to marry a woman 15 years younger. Especially when they woman knows what a family goes through because her father did it to her mother but it didn't matter, she survivor so Paris will, and did!!!! WOW!!! "
