Hotel Vendome - Danielle Steel I'm only 70 pages in and I have to admit I hate the writing. I remember another Steel novel that I read recently that had the same problem. Are all of her novels like this? It's like she isn't telling a story, she's stating facts that may run together. There are weird POVs that come out of the blue (Like Hilary, she described her intent before we even saw her do anything. What a waste of a character.) I'll keep reading because I come from a hotel family and I love the topic but I don't have much hope...

UPDATE: I should have stopped at 70. The writing didn't improve. The story had potential but I couldn't get over the lack of story line, the multiple rapid changing POVs, or the sentences beginning with And. Very dissapointing. Don't read!!!
