Featuring: Fiona Monaghan; John Anderson
Add to Wish List
As editor-in-chief of New York’s leading fashion magazine,
Fiona Monaghan lived a life as hectic and high-toned as the
fashion world itself, jetting back and forth between her
stylish Manhattan brownstone and the couture shows of
Europe. With closets stuffed with Fendi, a snoring bulldog
named Sir Winston sharing her bed, and a houseman who favors
gold lamé and borrows her shoes, Fiona was utterly content
with her life. Until the sweltering June day John Anderson
strolled into her office.
After a dinner date left them both wanting more, Fiona
impulsively invited John to the Paris couture shows. And in
the most romantic city in the world, somewhere between the
magic of the runway and the stroll along the Seine, Fiona
let this man into her heart. A widower with two daughters,
John Anderson was nearly Fiona’s opposite in every way. As
conservative as she was freewheeling, John was both amused
and appalled by Fiona’s world of high-strung designers,
anorexic models, and high-heeled housemen. But within weeks
of their return to New York, John was making friends with
Sir Winston—and Fiona was making room in her closets.
It didn’t take long for the dominoes to start falling.
First, John introduced Fiona to his daughters, their
bloodthirsty Pekingese, and a snarling housekeeper straight
out of Hitchcock’s Rebecca. It was hate at first sight.
Then, after a dinner party with John’s biggest client goes
disastrously awry, Fiona and John’s relationship began to
unravel with alarming speed. What happens next will set
Fiona on a journey filled with pain and revelation,
awakening and change.…For when she returns to Paris alone
and takes an amazing risk, an extraordinary series of events
begins to unfold. And as the snow falls on the city of
light, Fiona is about to get the surprise of her life: a
second act she never saw coming.
In a dazzling tale of modern misadventures and
career-crossed relationships, Danielle Steel brings us into
the lives of two unforgettable people as they love and
laugh, struggle and survive. With unerring insight, she
captures the heady magic of instant attraction, the
challenges of change—and the hope that comes when we dare to
do it all over again.
