Accidental Heroes Reviews
I’m not much of a Danielle Steele fan. However, the description of this book sounded like something I would enjoy. Unfortunately, her writing style is too “Dick and Jane” for me-not sure how else to describe it. I was disappointed in the interaction between the characters. There was really very little drama, and it was very predictable. The book was downhill after the climax so I skimmed the last several chapters.
I literally could not put this down. The best book she has ever written in my opinion. There is so much mystery revolving around a flight from New York to San Francisco each page is building upon who is responsible that I could not stop reading. Then in the end there is love, sigh. She couldn't leave us without a touch of romance thrown in. Highly recommended!! BTW, first five star of 2018
Wow! I used to be a big Steel fan but after awhile it seemed all her books were cut from the same mold and I stopped reading her. Then Accidental Heroes came along. I was hooked as soon as I read the blurb because I love airplane thrillers. What's more exciting than being thousands of feet in the air in virtually what is nothing more than a tin can, when you discover there's a problem and you and everyone aboard might be doomed to die! So I grabbed this one up.

I know I'm a Danielle Steel fanatic but this will go down as one of my faves. It was suspenseful, touching, and sweet.
another score for this author . Absolutely loved this book. From the very first chapter I was rooting for Bernice, a single mother out there trying to make a life for herself and her son. All the characters in this book intertwined with each other with their own lives been affected by outside forces never realizing that inside forces were controlling their lives. Ever when there are evil forces try to be bad, most people are good
I absolutely loved this book. It was superb! Heart pounding, edge of my seat, couldn’t stop reading until I finished it. To me it was a bit different in style than Danielle Steele usually writes and yet, it was a great read. A single mother who has her eye on the future and is determined to do the right thing, a woman who flew planes in the Air Force, lost her husband in a very public way and is now a single mother of 3 who flies commercial jets. This story is about these two women and s ...more
This is another winner for Danielle Steel. I don't know how she keeps up the prolific pace of her writing, but I'm surely glad she does. I always feel good after I read one of her books, and this one was no different. Thank you Ms. Steel for making my day.
