America's #1 bestseller • First time in paperback!

There are some places you visit, and some places you never leave behind. Danielle Steel's new novel follows a devoted father and the daughter he raises in the fascinating upstairs-downstairs world of a glamorous Manhattan hotel.

HOTEL VENDÔME

The hotel was old, run-down. But to Swiss-born hotelier Hugues Martin, it is a rough diamond tucked away on a quiet New York City street. So Hugues scrapes together everything he has to purchase the building—and transforms it into one of the world's finest luxury hotels.

Under Hugues's exacting supervision, the Hotel Vendôme is soon renowned for its unparalleled service and discretion—the ideal refuge for the rich and famous—and a perfect home for Hugues's family, until his young wife abandons him, leaving Hugues the single parent to their four-year-old daughter. Still, Heloise grows up happily amid a colorful milieu of celebrities, socialites, politicians, world travelers, and the countless hotel employees who all adore her.

As the years pass and unexpected challenges arise, Hugues and the hotel are the center of Heloise's life. She longs to follow in her father's footsteps and one day run the Hotel Vendôme. The lessons she learns at his side will carry her through it all, illuminating a story no reader will forget.

Welcome to the Hotel Vendôme.

I basically started it last night and just finished it. It was an easy read as usual. It had a good storyline and a lot less cussing than some of her others. I enjoy reading her books because they are such easy, quick reads. They can be read in a day and you are happy when you finish them. Read full review
