Description

He had been past retirement age, at seventy-­four, with no intention of stepping down, when the hotel closed for renovation four years before. During a time where our world has shrunk to our neighborhoods, remaining positive and refusing to give in, helps sustain our dreams. Life is full of complications, and for some of the guests and staff of the Louis XVI, one of Paris's most famous luxury hotels, it was a year they'd never forget. The story revolving around Gabrielle and Alaistair is the main storyline, as we see them fall in love, and her support for him during his severe treatments.

She is also the author of His Bright Light, the story of her son Nick Traina’s life and death; A Gift of Hope, a memoir of her work with the homeless; Expect a Miracle, a book of her favorite quotations for inspiration and comfort; Pure Joy, about the dogs she and her family have loved; and the children’s books Pretty Minnie in Paris and Pretty Minnie in Hollywood. I think the cast was too wide in this case and Steel worked in a lot of sub plots for such a short novel.This story follows a successful art dealer, a London doctor, a French politician, and an American couple celebrating divorces from their former partners.

What follows is a number of interesting stories, revolving around three different groups, as well as management of the Hotel. I have always heard wonderful things about Danielle Steels writing, but this is the second book I have read by her, and I must say I was not impressed. One of the guests of the hotel suffers a heart attack and while that is going on a doctor offers his help. Another story line revolves around a powerful French politician, who is also planning to stay at the hotel.

The writing style is very disjointed and clumsy but again the idea and premise is a good one just not executed on paper that’s invited or engaging. Especially during these COVID times, it’s great to escape into the world of jet setters and the rich and famous. We are then introduced to a variety of guests that include a physician, a prime minster, an art consultant, and a couple celebrating their respective divorces. Complications is a riveting story of scandal and tragedy set against the backdrop of an exclusive Paris hotel from the world's favourite storyteller, Danielle Steel Known for its luxury and discrete service, the Hotel Louis XVI in Paris has attracted an international clientele of the rich and famous for many decades. These 5 guests and the Hotels new manager Olivier Bateau and his new assistant Yvonne Philippe after an eventful first night after the grand reopening of the Hotel Louis XVI.
