Five Days in Paris
by Danielle Steel
Audio read by Victor Garber

Because this is a Danielle Steel novel, of course the heroine is mistreated by her current husband. That's just a given. In this instance, the hero is mistreated by his wife as well. That gives us readers a reason to dislike their current partners and not flinch too much when they get involved in an extramarital affair. I guess. I do have to admit, though, that it is a very sweet love story and I did want them to be together in the end and wasn't sure if it was going to happen for them. I was prepared for The Bridges of Madison County.

I listened to this on audio, narrated by the smooth-voiced Victor Garber. I could listen to him all day. He has such an elegance about him. Because of his voice, I'm pretty sure this may be my favorite Steel novel. ( ( )

It was predictable after a certain point, but the idea for a pill to help cure cancer was definitely interesting. ( )
