|Summary, etc.:|| A free-spirited editor-in-chief of New York's leading fashion magazine meets a conservative widower with two daughters in this novel about second chances in both love and life. Fiona Monaghan, amused as well as appalled by her world of high-strung designers, starving models, and designer-stuffed closets, was content with her jet-setting fast-paced life-until John Anderson walked into her office. When on a whim she invited him to join her for the Paris Couture shows, sparks flew, and Fiona soon found herself opening her heart and making room in her closet. In this tale of modern-day relationships and compromises made in the name of love, Daniel Steel shows just what can happen when one gathers enough courage to hope again.

Steel never tires of spinning fairy tales for her fans, and this story is no exception. Fiona Monaghan, an eccentric, fiery (and vivacious, lovely, and rich) editor in chief of a New York-based high-fashion magazine is single and lovin' it (or so she tells herself). What with all the fancy parties, celebrity friends, fashion shoots, and trips to couture shows in Europe, she feels that she doesn't have the time or interest required to maintain a steady relationship. Enter John Anderson, a handsome, rich, conservative businessman, the exact opposite of the colorful Fiona. Of course, they are madly attracted to each other, but a series of obstacles interferes with their happiness. For one thing, the recently widowed John has conflicted feelings about the relationship; although he's crazy about Fiona, on some level, he feels unfaithful to his dead wife--a misery that his resentful teenage daughters compound. In addition, Fiona's crazy life--bohemian friends, flamboyant houseman, constant work, parties, and travel--adds to the problems. Steel's fans will enjoy the detailed descriptions of privileged lifestyles and the ultimate happy resolution. ((Reviewed June 1 & 15, 2004)) Copyright 2004 Booklist Reviews.
