44 Charles Street had pot

44 Charles Street had potential with a deceptively interesting plot summary, but the writing and pacing took the fun out of it. The book had so much unnecessary and/or repetitive segments (and the opening chapters should have been cut - we could have learned about Francesca's financial situation and break-up in a paragraph), and I failed to see why Francesca seemed to think her life was so hard or why she was so attached to the house (especially when she basically sells it without a thought to move into another place with her new boyfriend at the end - hello, history repeating!). I don't like the message Danielle Steel was trying to send with Eileen's "online dating" storyline (I've never done it, but I know a lot of people who have used online dating and they've all managed to avoid the "characters" Eileen kept bringing through the house by utilizing their common sense). By the time I was about a third of the way through, I realized I was just wishing it was the end. The middle of the book was good, the characters were okay, but it just wasn't well-written. Basically, 44 Charles Street is quite a poorly-executed story.

While everything was good

While everything was good Francesca and Todd purchased the house at 44 Charles Street, a definite fixer-upper. Before the house was completed the relationship became as run down as the house. Unfortunately Francesca had fallen in love with the house, but without Todd's financial contribution could not afford to maintain it. Solution - take in roommates. This is the story of what happens as the roommates come and go.I generally do not read Danielle Steel and this book was a prime example of why. Although I am sure it will appeal to fans of her books, it was a little too pat and for me.

I love this book. I just

I love this book. I just finished it. This book has a little bit of everything in it. From love, to loss, to abuse, drug use, family , friends and a small child. In this book Francesa was at a crossroads in her life, Todd her boyfriend of 5 years , is moving out of the house they bought, fixed up and loved .. this for the past year has not been good with them. Francesa wants to keep the house she loves and also the Art Gallery they started together while he moves back to Wall Street, in trying to figure out how to keep her house and her gallery she chooses to rent out parts of her beloved home after selling her fathers paintings to buy out Todd , her father buys Todd's half of the gallery. The roommates are a good fit for her. Eileen comes first she teaches Special Ed, then comes Chris a divorces man with a 7 year old son that will be there every other weekend, and then Marya a famous chef. This book follows them thru the next year or so a great read.

A typical Danielle Steel

A typical Danielle Steel book about a strong character in trying circumstances succeeding and finding happiness. Some interesting side stories for the other characters - one dealing with the loss of a spouse, one in an abusive relationship, and one dealing with child custody issues.

Very nice story of a grou

Very nice story of a group of people living in a boarding house. Very typical Danielle Steel- if you love her you'll love this if not you won't! This book had a lot of different characters with different things going on in there lives. I really enjoyed it!!
