Good book; captivating; typical romance novel. I was in two hurricanes, but couldn't find a man. Well...maybe better luck next time.

Predictable but an easy read.

Danielle Steel's latest book is a perfect example of "what you know is what you get." As predictable as ever, "Rushing Waters" has more men than women so obviously some men are going to be nasty (Of course the women are really good,) and ultimately all the men pair up with all the women. Needless to say the Hurricane that blasted New York City was invaluable in this process.

Another good Danielle Steel book. Always a quick read with gorgeous people of wealth. This time they were leveled with other people by a hurricane in New York City.
