Easy to read with no detailed intrigue that I needed to keep tabs on. I was interested in hearing about the various duties/requirements/qualifications etc of the different characters as I've not read many medical fiction books. The story line was pretty much predictable from early on but it didn't effect my interest.
When I read the blurb about this book, I thought it was a story I would really like, it sounded like a grittier type of book than I would normally associate with Danielle Steel. I never mind if there is a romantic element in a book which isn't primarily a romance novel, though.
The story concerns four trauma surgeons from San Francisco who go on a work exchange to Paris, and basically it is about all eight of these people - four from the American and four from the French side - and their lives and loves. There was plenty of material to work with here; from frustrated husbands and playboy doctors to dedicated women who were missing out in their personal lives. It could have been cheesy, but it wasn't. There was just enough drama happening in the work realm to make the romantic entanglements a little bit secondary, and I was happy about that.
All in all, this book had a pretty good balance and I am glad I gave Danielle Steel another go, after I stopped reading purely romantic novels probably 15 years ago or more.
