Don’t miss Suspects by Danielle Steel, her latest book to be published this year.  If you’re your a fan of Danielle’s books, you won’t want to miss this one.

So, is Suspects by Danielle Steel worth a read?

You’ll have to be the judge of that, but hopefully my review will help you decide whether or not you want to read this book.

My review includes a short synopsis of the book along with my thoughts on what I liked best, what I didn’t like and whether or not I think this is a worthwhile read.

Suspects by Danielle Steel

Suspects is the latest book out by Danielle Steel. It was just published June 28th, 2022.

Did you know this about Danielle Steel? Her full name is actually Danielle Fernandes Dominique Schuelein-Steel, and she is a best-selling American author that has written 197 books as of 2021. Of those 197 books, 168 of them are novels. She’s also the mother of nine children (all grown up now). Yes, you read that correctly. Nine! Where in the world did she ever find the time to write any books?

Here is a list of all of her books in order in case you haven’t read them all yet. And FYI, there are alot of them (thankfully), so if you haven’t read many of them yet, this list will keep you busy for awhile.

Here’s the book, Suspects, in case you haven’t seen it anywhere yet.

Most Danielle Steel fans can’t wait for new books to come out. Despite the fact that she is now writing multiple books each year, I feel like the new ones are still highly anticipated. That’s certainly the case for me!

It’s good to know that she has at least a few more books already scheduled for publication.

The last book of Danielle Steel’s that I reviewed was Flying Angels (which I loved) and it is a historical fiction novel. This book, Suspects, is set in the present-day with no historical aspect to it at all.

Publisher’s Synopsis of Suspects by Danielle Steel

A dedicated CIA agent becomes an unexpected ally to a woman haunted by the kidnapping of her family, in this thrilling novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Danielle Steel.

Theodora Morgan is fashion royalty. Founder of a wildly popular online shopping service, she is one of the most successful businesswomen in the world, although she prefers to keep a low profile, especially over the last months. It was a year ago when the unthinkable struck her family, and her husband, industry mogul Matthieu Pasquier, and their son were kidnapped and held for ransom—a nightmare that ended in tragedy.
The case has gone cold, despite evidence linking the crime to Matthieu’s Russian competitors. Theo has reluctantly gone back to work running her company. On the flight to a launch party for one of her highly anticipated pop-up shops in New York City, she crosses paths with high-society networker Pierre de Vaumont. Theo politely invites him to her event—unaware that Pierre has been flagged by the CIA.
Senior supervising CIA operative Mike Andrews investigates Pierre’s suspicious Russian contacts and clears him to enter the country, but when he realizes that Theodora Morgan is on the same flight, he becomes concerned for her safety. Posing as a lawyer, Mike begins a covert mission—starting with Theo’s opening party. When Mike and Theo meet, their connection is instant, but Theo is completely unaware of Mike’s true objective or identity… or that the life she is rebuilding is in grave danger.

Suspects by Danielle Steel – What I Liked

This book was exciting from the very beginning.

I instantly loved the main character Theodora Morgan. As is not unusual for Danielle Steel, she creates female characters that are strong women who handle crises in their lives with grace and dignity. And that was certainly the case with Theodora Morgan. Although she had some heartbreaking tragedies in her life, she remained brave and strong and found a reason to continue living.

I also loved the story line which included the fashion industry, first with Theodora’s own fashion website and also with her late husbands company which owned multiple luxury brands. I find the luxury brands and fashion industry exciting and the way Danielle Steel wrote this into the novel made me feel like I was part of that industry.

In addition to that, here is another Danielle book which heavily features the city of Paris, one of my favorite places and, I suspect, one of Danielle Steel’s as well since she lives there part of the time. I have always loved any book that she sets in Paris, and her descriptions of the city and everything going on there makes me feel like I’m standing right there at the bottom of the Eiffel Tower myself.

Finally, this book was nonstop action from start to finish. I honestly found it impossible to put down. It’s a page turner, and kept me absolutely glued to the book until the very last page.

Suspects by Danielle Steel – What I Didn’t Like

Honestly, I can’t think of anything that I didn’t like about this book.

The only thing I will mention, which isn’t really a “dislike”, is that I can’t quite figure out why she used the title “Suspects.” I can’t tell you more because I don’t do spoilers here. I guess I can possibly see a reason, but seriously, having read the book and now written this entire review, I’m still trying to see why Danielle thought it was the best title.

Suspects by Danielle Steel – Read, ReRead or Reconsider

And now for my 3 R’s of book reviews. Read, ReRead or Reject?

What is my honest opinion about Suspects?

A definite Read!

I personally can never seem to get enough of Danielle Steel books. This one is another solid read that I wouldn’t want to miss. I highly recommend it.

Danielle has a few more books already scheduled for publication in the coming months. I can’t wait!

You can see what’s coming here on the Amazon Danielle Steel author page. Or, here on my list of Danielle Steel books in order.
