" I thoroughly enjoyed the first Danielle Steele book I read. Lately, not so much. Bungalow 2 was a disaster. And her heroines are increasingly wimpy - not the women of her earlier works. It does seem condescending to the reader - as if we could only relate to the dowdy, whiny, downtrodden would-be-successful if they had made better decisions. She departs a little bit with this heroine but trades it for fear and bitterness. Last time I checked men didn't find that attractive. Also, she should fire her proofreader. Maybe she texted the entire book in. I hear that's the new thing. "
