4.0 out of 5 stars Power Play
I Didn't think this was one of Danielle Steels best books, her earlier books were more gripping and kept your interest . Although I did enjoy the story and would recommend reading it.

3.0 out of 5 stars A lot of truth about relationships and affairs
There is a lot of truth to the two stories in this book. Even in the lives of less powerful and rich people relationships and extra marital affairs happen very much as described. They are just as sweet, romantic, all consuming and very often finally cruel and very far from honesty and real love.

Fiona's story however, is weaker in as much as it is quite...

3.0 out of 5 stars A lot of truth about relationships and affairs, 4 Aug 2014

This review is from: Power Play (Hardcover)
There is a lot of truth to the two stories in this book. Even in the lives of less powerful and rich people relationships and extra marital affairs happen very much as described. They are just as sweet, romantic, all consuming and very often finally cruel and very far from honesty and real love.

Fiona's story however, is weaker in as much as it is quite boring. This is also the part of the book which is most repetitive and mostly without any action, almost standstill.

Marshall's story is far more interesting. In the beginning and in spite of his duplicity, he actually does not seem totally unsympathetic. But his true character which is revealed at the end of the book, is very typical for powerful and charismatic men, especially when they are faced with not getting their own way.

When I have only given the book three stars it's because of the bad writing. It's extremely repetitive and describing tedious and completely unnecessary details. Whether Fiona prefers her hot dogs with or without ketchup and/or mustard is of no interest whatsoever. That Logan brings French bread, cheese and wine is ok, but why add "for us" (who else for?). Where is the editor??

For me the writing did not ruin the story though. Apart from the most repetitive bits I enjoyed the book and could even at times nod in recognition...
