Book Review# 43: Fairy Tale :Danielle Steel



PC :Amazon
Synopsis:

A twenty-first century Fairy tale for readers of all ages, by the ever-magical Danielle Steel.
Fairy tale is an enchanting rendering of a much-loved classic by the world's favorite storyteller, Danielle Steel.
Camille Lammenais has grown up in the beauty of the Napa Valley surrounded by acres of her family's vineyards. Her parents, Christophe and Joy, still deeply in love after two decades of marriage, have built a renowned winery and chateau modeled after Christophe's ancient family estate in his native Bordeaux. Camille has had a perfect childhood, safe in her parents' love. After graduating from Stanford, she returns to help manage Chateau Joy, her lifetime goal. But their fairy tale ends suddenly with her mother's death.
Six months after losing his wife, the devastated Christophe is easy prey for a mysterious, charming Frenchwoman visiting the valley. Camille, still grieving for her mother, is shocked by the news that her father intends to remarry. Then she begins to see past the alluring looks, designer clothes and elegant manners of the Countess, while her innocent father is trapped in her web . . .
A wonderful, beautifully told tale from America's favorite novelist, Fairy tale is a captivating example of the truths that will always withstand even the darkest storms and a reminder that sometimes fairy tales do come true and good prevails over evil in the end.




My Review:

This one started well, I have always loved Danielle Steel's writing. She has flair and I loved the way she developed Camille's character. Also the mystery around the Maxine and the step brothers. The predictable evil step mother and step brothers around the Cinderella who is the sole heir to the property. But I felt could have been executed a little better.

A very predictable story which could have ended better. Also some characters are half baked. Doesn't match the other writings of the author.

Okay okay one. Skip the pages n sail through as it is dragging in many places and sounds very monotonous. Plus the story being predictable you don't miss much if you skip and read too. Easy to connect and understand.

I felt like I was reading some Daily soap story. The other books written by the author would make a much better read.

  1. Hmm, that's what you get for reading a book called Fairy Tales. What else do you expect but a rehashing of the age old Cinderella fairy tale.

    I guess its time to expand your horizons beyond the known authors.

    Cheers,
