I was disappointed. Maybe it's because I have been reading a lot of thrillers lately with twists and turns and unexpected plot lines, but this story was just too predictable. I felt like I always knew what was coming and it seemed a little cookiecutter. Also, there weren't even any hot love scenes to spice it up. The best part to me was the description of some places I'd also traveled to in Italy. That was fun. I found this book to be rather disappointing. It sounded promising and interesting. But it ended up being predictable and rather blah. I haven't read a Danielle Steel book in a long time, I just might not be used to her writing style. It seemed old fashioned and the characters were all a little boringthey could have been so much more. This could have been a short story in 30 pages or less. Why do I torture myself reading this? Because. Jewelry. A safe deposit box. And a family mystery. But still. Way too long. Horrible writing. No character development, no plot. The "mystery" is revealed way too early. This story was repetitive. This story said the same thing over and over again. The story seemed to repeat its self.
Yep. Just like that!
Could have been a novella instead of a full novel and there was no mystery or romance. It was very dull. Typical DS novelI think she has resorted to phoning them in to her publisher. Everything is important, everyone is handsome and all the women have great figures. All the main characters find love, money and happiness and voilà, the story wraps up tidily.

Seriously, the book could have been so much more had she written the story of the jewels from Marguerite's historical viewpoint, rather than just telling it through letters.

With all her success, she hasn't learned how to write! Yes, she can tell a story, but her writing is extremely repetitive, and at times very dull.

Over the years, I've read (way) too many of Ms. Steel's books, and each one is just a bit worse than the last. Thank the lord it's finished. Whoever described this book as "thrilling" needs to spend a minute with a dictionary. This was a lil different style for DS. A truly unique story concept that left me turning pages very quickly to see how it was going to go. Always a treat to read a DS! &READ KINDLE ⇬ Property of a Noblewoman ⇲ Property Of TRAVEL GEAR FOR THE GLOBAL CITIZEN Timeless Looks, Functional Design And Sustainable Production A Collection Of Bags, Backpacks And Other Travel Accessories Designed In The Heart Of Amsterdam Property Of Traduction En Franais Exemples AnglaisTraductions En Contexte De Property Of En Anglais Franais Avec Reverso Context Of Intellectual Property, Of The Property, Of Intellectual Property Rights, Of Cultural Property, Protection Of Intellectual Property The Property Of Traduction En Franais ExemplesTraductions En Contexte De The Property Of En Anglais Franais Avec Reverso Context Value Of The Property, The Protection Of Intellectual Property, Of The Intellectual Property, The Protection Of Cultural Property, The Value Of The Property Property Of Accueil Facebook Property Of J Aimeen Parlentpersonnes Taient Ici TRAVEL GEAR FOR THE GLOBAL CITIZEN PROPERTY Signification, Dfinition Dans Le Dictionnaireproperty Dfinition, Signification, Ce Qu Est Propertyan Object Or Objects That Belong To Someonea Building Or Area Of Land, Or Both Together En Savoir Plus Is The Property Of Traduction Franaise Linguee De Trs Nombreux Exemples De Phrases Traduites Contenant Is The Property Of Dictionnaire Franais Anglais Et Moteur De Recherche De Traductions Franaises Property English French Dictionary WordReference Property Valuation N Noun Refers To Person, Place, Thing, Quality, Etc Assessment Of Financial Worth Of Real Estate Valuation De La Valeur D Un Bien Immobilier Nf Nom Fminin S Utilise Avec Les Articles La, L Devant Une Voyelle Ou Un H Muet , Une Ex Fille Nf On Dira La Fille Ou Une Fille Avec Un Nom Fminin, L Adjectif S Accorde En Gnral, On Ajoute Un ETraduction Property Franais Dictionnaire Anglais Traduction Property Dans Le Dictionnaire Anglais Francais De Reverso, Voir Aussi Property Company ,intellectual Property ,lost Property ,personal Property , Conjugaison, Expressions Idiomatiques Title Of Property Traduction Franaise Linguee Possession Thereof, Maintain Property Rights Thereto, Even Though They Lack Legal Title, Unless The Lands Have Been Lawfully Transferred To Third Parties In Good Faith Andthe Members Of Indigenous Peoples Who Have Unwillingly Lost Possession Of Their Lands, When Those Lands Have Been Lawfully Transferred To Innocent Third Parties, Are Entitled To Restitution Thereof Or To Obtain Other I'm going to start by saying that I have been a huge fan of Danielle Steel for 20 years (I started reading her books long before it was age appropriate) but lately I feel as though I'm forcing myself just to get through the newer ones. The problems that I'm going to mention are the same ones I've had with all of her books written in the last 7 or so years...

* The plot is good and typical for what I expect of a DS novel, but the writing feels lazy and forcedthis is especially clear when I look at the dialogue which is downright cringy most of the time. When I consider her earlier books, Danielle was a master of the "show usdont tell us" writing practice but lately she's all about telling and she's doing it all through cheesy and overlylong dialogue.

* Speaking of writing...She lays an interesting foundation but then fails to fully flesh out the story which results in it feeling very halfassed. The characters are another aspect that doesn't feel fleshed out. When I read this plot outline, I was hoping for something on the same level as The Ring or Zoya but merely ended up seriously disappointed in a very one dimensional story that just falls flat.

* One of the main problems I have with her newer books is that regardless of the struggles or trials the characters are going through it all gets solved very quickly with little to no effort whichonce againsimply leads to disappointment when I think of the brilliance and success of her early work.

As a lifelong fan, I would simply like to say that at this point I would rather Danielle retire than keep putting out several lackluster books a year.
3.25 stars (liked it)

I was inspired to try my first Danielle Steel novel during a recent book store shopping trip with a friend who told me Steel was one of her favorite authors. Until then, I had wondered whether her contemporary fiction would live up to my (which I am the first to admit are often unrealistically high!) expectations but I was happily surprised to find I generally enjoyed this novel. I chose this particular one based on my interest in the concept of learning more about people in history through their personal belongings (photos, letters, artistic valuables, etc.) as well as my own love of jewelry. Although the writing was a bit basic at times and a couple plot elements were a little predictable, I thought this novel was generally well developed. I found myself becoming connected to the characters, invested in the unveiling of the past jewelry owner's family relationships and international life, and interested in the appraisal/auctioning process of the jewelry. I have since looked at other Danielle Steel novels and have selectively added to my list a few others that appear to have some plot substance and international flavor as options for quick light reads as a nice change of pace.
