And Coco, a law school dropout and the family black sheep, works as a dog walker, having fled life in the spotlight for the artsy northern California beach town of Bolinas.But when Coco reluctantly agrees to dog-sit in Jane&;s luxurious home, she soon discovers how much things can change in just a matter of days.&;It turns out Jane&;s house comes complete with an unexpected houseguest: Leslie Baxter, a dashing but down-to-earth British actor who&;s fleeing a psycho ex-girlfriend.

Her mother is not just a self-centered walking advertisement for great cosmetic surgery, she&;s a woman in love, with vulnerability and new insight.

As Coco contemplates a future with one of Hollywood&;s hottest stars, as her mother and sister settle into their lives, old wounds are healed and new familes are formed&;some traditional, some not so traditional, but all bonded by love.With wit and intelligence, Danielle Steel&;s new novel explores love in all its guises, taking us into the lives of three unusual but wonderfully real couples. Funny, sexy, and wise, One Day At a Time is at once moving, thought provoking, and utterly impossible to put down.

Danielle Steel celebrates families of every stripe in her compelling novel--a tale of three very different couples who struggle and survive, love, laugh, and learn to take life . . .

Coco Barrington was born into a legendary Hollywood family. Her mother, Florence, is a mega-bestselling author. Her sister, Jane, is one of Hollywood's top producers and has lived with her partner, Liz, for ten years in a solid, loving relationship. Florence, widowed but still radiant, has just begun a secret romance with a man twenty-four years her junior. But Coco, a law-school dropout and the family black sheep, works as a dog walker, having fled life in the spotlight for an artsy Northern California beach town.

When Coco reluctantly agrees to house-sit for Jane, she discovers an unexpected houseguest: Leslie Baxter, a dashing but down-to-earth British actor who's fleeing a psycho ex-girlfriend. Their worlds couldn't be more different. The attraction couldn't be more immediate. And as Coco contemplates a future with one of Hollywood's hottest stars, as her mother and sister settle into their lives, old wounds are healed and new families are formed--some traditional, some not so traditional, but all bonded by love.

With wit and intelligence, Danielle Steel's novel explores love in all its guises, taking us into the lives of three unusual but wonderfully real couples. Funny, sexy, and wise, One Day at a Time is at once moving, thought-provoking, and utterly impossible to put down.
