Undercover // the review

I have not read a Danielle Steel book in a really long time. When I read the excerpt of the book I just have to read it.

What this book is about?

"Marshall Everett has traveled a twisting, perilous road from the jungles of South America to the streets of Paris. As an undercover DEA agent, Marshall penetrated a powerful cartel and became the trusted right-hand man of a ruthless drug lord. The price he paid was devastating, costing him everything—and everyone—he loved. Back in the U.S., on temporary assignment to the Secret Service, on the presidential detail, Marshall performs an act of heroism that changes his course forever. 

Ariana Gregory has her whole future ahead of her, with an exciting life in Manhattan and a coveted job at an online fashion magazine. But when her father, recently widowed, is appointed U.S. ambassador to Argentina, she reluctantly agrees to accompany him to Buenos Aires. Then an unthinkable act of violence shatters her world. Nearly a year later, Ariana arrives in Paris, on a fragile road to recovery. There, as she strives to bury painful memories forever, she crosses paths with Marshall Everett. But dangerous forces watch her every move, and Ariana and Marshall will once more have to fight for their survival

In this breathtaking and psychologically penetrating novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Danielle Steel explores the consequences of trauma and the perseverance of the human spirit. In Marshall and Ariana she has created two unforgettable characters confronting extraordinary challenges—who no longer need to face them alone." excerpt from amazon.com

What do I think?

- this book was told from two main characters Marshall and Ariana but in a third person version. I like that.
- knowing Danielle Steel I know that this story is going to a love story in it somewhere. I think she should focus more on that. 
- the last few chapters feel a little bit rushed. I would have love to read more about Marshall and Ariana relationship. Their background story should be minimum.
- I would have love it more if Danielle Steel keep the Paris story a little bit longer with Marshal and Adriana. I think that's my favourite part of the story.
- I agreed that this is not one of Danielle Steel best work but it still managed to keep me interested. I've finished this book in five days which is a record for me.

I recommend this book if you like Danielle Steel and would love to read about a world that is so crazy that you would have never experience it yourself
