The silly season came and slapped me in the face, I am so far behind on EVERYTHING that there is just no way I am going to be able to get through all the December books in time to get readers feedback links. I am 3 days out from my holiday with no packing and no cleaning but now wrapping completed.
So, I have decided the best way to tackle the holiday season Book Club reads is to get a post up for readers to leave their feedback on and I will read and review separately. It helps ease the pressure on me and that is what I am in dire need of right now.
Past Perfect is the latest by bestselling author Danielle Steel; a prolific writer with lots of books under her belt, and screen adaptations. She is currently the best selling author alive, and I don’t think I have read any of her books. I can’t say I remember seeing any of her movies either.
All of that aside, the premise for Past Perfect is intriguing and not what I would have expected.
Manhattan power couple Sybil and Blake Gregory have a predictable life raising their children until Blake is offered the CEO position of a start-up in San Francisco. He accepts the position without consulting, or considering, the family and buys them a new home in Pacific Heights, a magnificent historic mansion.
The Gregorys get more than they bargained for when they discover that they are sharing with the spirits of the family who inhabited the mansion a century ago. The family are only visible to the Gregorys and the mansion manages to straddle both centuries simultaneously.
I had a quick glance at some reviews online and opinions are divided. I think this is one that you really need to do your own checking on to see if you will like. I am certainly still intrigued and look forward to seeing how Steel approaches the subject matter.
I am really looking forward to reading this one, and sharing my views in a separate review. I am also looking forward to hearing what our readers think.
