Eleven years have passed since Alexa Hamilton left the South behind, fleeing the pain of her ex-husband’s betrayal and the cruelty of his prominent Charleston family. Now an assistant D.A. in Manhattan, Alexa has made a name for herself as a top prosecutor while juggling her role as devoted single mom to a teenage daughter. But everything changes when Alexa is handed her latest case: the trial of accused serial killer Luke Quentin. Alexa prepares for a high-stakes trial . . . until threatening letters are addressed to her beautiful seventeen-year-old daughter, Savannah. Alexa is certain that Quentin is behind the letters — and that they are too dangerous to ignore. Suddenly she must make the toughest choice of all — and send her daughter back to the very place she swore she would never return to: the place where her marriage ended in heartbreak . . . her ex-husband’s world of southern tradition, memories of betrayal, and the antebellum charm of Charleston. Now, while Alexa’s trial builds to a climax in New York, her daughter is settling into southern life, discovering a part of her family history and a father she barely knows. As secrets are exposed and old wounds are healed, Alexa and Savannah, after a season in different worlds, will come together again — strengthened by the challenges they have faced, and with Savannah now at home in the southern world her mother fled. A novel that will catch you off guard at every turn, Southern Lights is Danielle Steel at her electrifying best. Download and start listening now!

    " Had picked up this book thinking it would be more of a legal-courtroom drama ... but then Steele in true form still kept it about relationships, family, love and ofcourse happily ever after!! Pretty usual and regular stuff ...been there, read that loads of time .... ! Blah ... blah ....AND BLAH!!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lynda | 1/26/2014

    " This book lacked interesting details and a more intriguing plot would have made it memorable. I rate this book as an OK read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristin | 1/25/2014

    " Not like her other books I have read lately.. but I LOVED IT..... its a winner.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy | 1/24/2014

    " Pretty Danielle Steele like, good but not great. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joanna | 1/21/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lorie Rose | 1/3/2014

    " A definite happily ever after! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Virginia | 12/27/2013

    " Why do I even read danielle steel?! Continuously repetitive, badly written, and completely ignorant of reality. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Verone | 12/23/2013

    " I hadn't read a DS book in a while because they all seemed to have the same "strong-woman" character and plot. This one does have a woman as the primary character but the location was set in Louisiana so I decided to read it. I am glad I did because I really enjoyed it and it was an easy read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Soumia | 12/22/2013

    " not tht impressive.. Though it starts good,story lacks meaning as it goes.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sophie | 12/15/2013

    " I always love a good, emotional Danielle Steel book! Nothing like her to make me grateful for my simple life! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jackie | 12/12/2013

    " A good story connecting a daughter back with her father and her southern roots and her mothers journey to healing her broken heart. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanne | 12/9/2013

    " Typical Danielle Steel, a pleasant read, romance and a little drama. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 12/6/2013

    " "just a Sunday read. Some mystery. Some romance. Typical Danielle Steele." "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 10/11/2013

    " Meh, too many stories too flip floppy ... not really impressed "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dorcus Abercrombie | 7/24/2013

    " Recommend, it was a good book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Reed | 12/7/2012

    " I loved this book. Had a hard time putting it down. What a fool Tom was.....now he has to live with that B----. Happy that Alexa found someone who loves her and respects her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marlyn | 6/30/2012

    " I've read many of Danielle Steels books over the years but I finally gave up reading her books because they started to seem like they were just falling off the conveyer belt in her book factory. I just finished her book "Souther Lights" and enjoyed reading it. A nice story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elisa | 7/23/2011

    " it was a pretty average book. not the best, not the worst. I wouldn't really mark it as danielle steel's best "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim Snyder | 6/7/2011

    " A story where Southern and Northern hospitality are discovered. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alesha Leveritt | 5/3/2011

    " Cotton candy...not much substance, but tasty. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Twiga21 | 5/1/2011

    " This was a great story...similar to the old Danielle Steel books before her storylines became predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Raquel | 4/13/2011

    " Good book but there is a lot of swearing. I was very tempted to white out all the swear words, as my friend says "no one needs to read that. the book is just as good with out it" I feel guilty doing that since it is a library book. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 12/28/2010

    " I love Danielle Steel books and this one is no different! I couldn't put it down! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Strawn | 9/26/2010

    " just a good southern read. My first Danielle Steel and I do like her writing style. Easy read. Feel good book. Charlston is one of my favorite cities and this one is based in Charlston and New York. Just fun with some mystery and drama and humor too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie Whitehurst | 7/28/2010

    " Danielle Steel is pure fluff, but never fails to entertain and let me escape for a little while. This book actually had more substance than most of her books and I thoroughly enjoyed the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marybeth Littlefield | 3/11/2010

    " I enjoyed the book but felt that after the climax the remainder of the book was full of "fluff"-- predictable ending. "

    " I only have one word for this book ... phenomenal! "
