Danielle Steel & Fern Michaels

So I read through Bungalow 2 by Danielle Steel pretty quickly, I've just been lazy about posting here. I never receive comments so I honestly don't know if anyone is OUT THERE reading? If you are just say Hi or anything so I know someone is out there ;0)

Anyways, this wasn't what I was expecting. At least not the ending, I was actually a little surprised. This one is a pretty new release I think. It's about a woman who has sacrificed everything for her family for the past twenty years, to stay home take care of her kids, her home, her husband etc. but done some writing work on the side from home. Her dream job of writing a screenplay lands in her lap, she refuses to leave home to do the job but her husband convinces her that they can handle it, she's just going to LA from the San Francisco area. Anyways once she leaves for a few months but comes on the weekends thing in her family change. They hate her for leaving, turning to another lady for attention etc. You'll follow her through the nine months on the job, traveling home on weekends, enduring so much just to follow her dream.

I also finished The Real Deal by Fern Michaels it took me a little while to get into this one but it was a really good story after I did!! I don't know what is with me lately but I can't seem to get really into ANY book. Maybe my brain needs a little down time, time to veg in front of the TV or something. That might happen with the shows now coming back with new episodes. But anyways being a fan of Fern Michaels I really liked this one.

Someone had asked me if I'd read Friday Night Knit Club as they needed to read it for a book group. I haven't. I asked if it was any good after they read it and I never got a response, have any of you read it? Care to give me a review? Thumbs Up? Thumbs Down? I like Debbie Macomber and like her Blossom Street series is this like a knock off of that? I picked the FNKC up at Books A Million today and read the back cover and it almost sounded like A Good Yarn by Debbie Macomber? I might look it up online at the library and reserve it but I'd like to know what someone thought of it if you've read it ;0)

You are not talking to yourself.

I also recently finished Bungalow
2. I thought it was a very good story although there were times in the book when I thought she was going to be the one cheating. I have read several Danielle Steel books and each time I am capivated by the stories.
Before I ever read a Steel Novel I would alway pick up Fern Michaels. She is also a favorite of mine. I loved the Kentucky series. Each time I finished one book I made sure I had the next one right there ready to jump into it.
I have also started reading Debbie Macomber.
