Rushing Waters by Danielle Steel

Rushing WatersRushing Waters by Danielle Steel
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I typically enjoy the light-hearted escapism of a Danielle Steel book, but Rushing Waters was not one of my favorites. The story centered around a large group of individuals dealing with a huge hurricane and its aftermath in New York City. The story had way too many characters, so it was difficult to really get into each story. The characters were not well developed. The book kept jumping from one story line to another. Overall it was just too chaotic to enjoy. Even for Danielle Steel fans, this book should be at the bottom of your 'to-read' pile.  It makes me wonder if she is using ghost writers now, her recent books are just not the same.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

With humor and sarcasm that will brighten any exhausted parents day, this adorable bedtime book is for parents, not children. The sweet illustrations and well written verses capture the challenge and struggle of all parents when dealing with small children at bedtime. This book makes a PERFECT gift for anyone with small children at home.
