Review of Power Play – Danielle Steel

power play

Fiona Carson is a powerful CEO of a multibillion-dollar high-tech company and savvy and organised solo mother. She lives a solitary life with only her children for company and the occasional blind date, her ex-husband having decided he wants a domestic goddess instead of a smart, successful woman with a better career than him. Logan is an investigative reporter assigned to interview her for a business magazine and they slowly become friends.

Marshall Weston appears to have the perfect life; a loving wife of 30 years, 3 gorgeous talented children, a high powered job that has seen him become a corporate bigwig; but under the surface it’s slowly falling apart. Marshall has a mistress and twin 7 year old daughters in another city that he sees every week when he flies there on business. His mistress knows all about his family and he’s promised her he’ll leave his wife and marry her when his youngest child finishes high school. Then his conservative company finds out about the affair and gives him an ultimatum; the mistress or the wife but not both.

Fiona and Marshall’s stories are told concurrently and the book looks at family secrets and how power is used by different people. There were a few unexpected twists but I was satisfied by the ending overall. I really enjoyed this book and I recommend it to anyone who wants a HEA. A delightful read from the queen of romance and a good way to spend to spend a few hours.
