HelloKatieO’s #CBR4 Review #45: Rogue by Danielle Steel
The theme of my summer reading list was “other people’s books.” I read books owned by the professor I sublet from. I read books left in the beach house we rented by past renters. I read books left in the hostel I stayed in in Lima. This particularly selection came from the beach house’s shelf of lost books, and it was perfect for hot, sunshiney, 90 degree days on the beach.
Rogue by Danielle Steel is about Maxine, a gorgeous psychiatrist who treats adolescent patients. The book is simple. Maxine leaves her ex-husband after they lead a life of adventure, and raises her children alone, struggling to find a new man. And just when she fines her match – stable, friendly, doctor – she finds herself choosing between her adventurous, handsome ex-husband or her new, reliable, steady gorgeous doctor boyfriend. You can probably guess who she chooses.
I read a Danielle Steele novel years ago. It was spectacularly bad. My recollection is that there wasn’t really narrative; it was more of a plot summary with clothing descriptions.
