The Numbers Game is back to what Danielle Steel does best. It's my favorite type of book from this author as it is about relationships. About family. About love. About living up to one's potential. And what is special about this book is that it is a multi-generational story – “numbers” in the title refers to people’s ages. The center of the story is a couple with school age children – the marriage has not provided this seemingly happy couple with the type of deep love they each yearn for. They have settled in their aspirations. Their 17-year old daughter is maturing fast and is working to handle the ups and downs of first-love. There are characters we meet who are up to 93 years of age. Each one is seeking fulfilling relationships yet mistakes are made along the way.
There are no great surprises here. But this is a nice, light read that reaffirms that age is just a number and that everyone should strive for love and happiness. It’s never too late....what a nice thought. Many thanks to NetGalley, Random House and the incredible Ms. Steel for the opportunity to read this enjoyable book that will be published on March 3, 2020. Keep ‘em coming!
Rated 4 out of 5 stars.
