Best-sellers

FORMULA ONE

She's baaaack! Danielle Steel-she of the delicate features and over-the-top plotlines-once again has a No. 1 best-seller. According to one publishing insider, Steel's last couple of books (including Vanished) weren't exactly bombs, but they weren't huge successes, either. Accident-with a million copies in print-has changed all that. In this, Steel's 36th novel, five families' lives are ''altered forever'' by a head-on car collision. (Book-on-tape version not recommended for long drives.) FICTION WEEKS ON LIST
