    Description

    Two different worlds and two very different lives collide in Paris in this captivating novel by Danielle Steel.

    Joachim von Hartmann was born and raised in Buenos Aires by his loving German mother, inseparable from his identical twin. When Joachim moves to Paris with his mother in his late teens, his twin stays behind and enters a dark world. Meanwhile, Joachim begins training to be a butler, fascinated by the precision and intense demands, and goes on to work in some of the grandest homes in England. His brother never reappears.

    Olivia White has given 10 years of her life to her magazine, which failed, taking all her dreams with it. A bequest from her mother allows her a year in Paris to reinvent herself. She needs help setting up a home in a charming Parisian apartment. It is then that her path and Joachim's cross.

    Joachim takes a job working for Olivia as a lark and enjoys the whimsy of a different life for a few weeks, which turn to months as the unlikely employer and employee learn they enjoy working side by side. At the same time, Joachim discovers the family history he never knew: a criminal grandfather who died in prison, the wealthy father who abandoned him, and the dangerous criminal his twin has become. While Olivia struggles to put her life back together, Joachim's comes apart.

    Stripped of their old roles, they strive to discover the truth about each other and themselves, first as employer and employee, then as friends. Their paths no longer sure, they are a man and woman who reach a place where the past doesn't matter and only what they are living now is true.

    Equivalent to a meeting that should have been an email.

    This book could have been reduced to an hour if all of the repetition had been removed.

    The entire story consisted of the same words rearranged for hours.

    What a disappointment and waste of time!

    Long time fan

    She’s repeating things too many times. It’s getting worse with each book it seems. The story is good but the repeating drives you crazy

    Not up to par for Danielle Steele

    Extremely weak ending…rushed to publisher and it shows. Characters and story-line ended abruptly. Disappointing!

    Disappointing

    This was the worst audio book I’ve ever purchased. Both the writing and performance were poor. Steel said the same thing over and over throughout the story. I kept waiting for it to get better and it never did. I would not recommend.

    Not what I expected

    I have been listening to D Steel books for years. The last couple just seem so boring. Not sure what's going on but I'm torn between, should I continue to purchase and be disappointed or just find another author.

    Surprised at how much I enjoyed it!

    After reading all the reviews beforehand I was unsure if this would be a disappointment but it was not! I’ve been an avid DS fan for many many years and agree the often repetitive nature of her recent books has been a turn off for me. But even though there is some repeating, I didn’t find them distracting and I also didn’t mind the narrator. The ending could have been a bit more developed I would agree but I enjoyed the story enough that I listened to the entire thing over a 24 hour time span. In my opinion it was a great ‘read’.

    Enjoyed

    This was my first Audible book. I enjoyed listening instead of reading. Will definitely do it again.

    enjoyable

    I found it an enjoyable story. The narrator for me was very rote in his tone and inflections. That for me took away an emotional component a d made the audio experience very one dimensional.
