Product Description

Review

‘Juicy, glitzy and delightfully engrossing, you won't want to put this book down.’ Karen Quinn, author of The Sister Diaries and The Ivy Chronicles

‘A juicy novel about the luxe but empty lives of insanely rich New Yorkers’
Lottie Moggach, The London Paper

‘I couldn’t put it down’
Closer

‘Anyone who liked The Devil Wears Prada and Sex and the City will like this’
CITY A.M

‘In this salacious, delightful tale of New York movers and shakers, Boncompagni animates her rich, glamorous, scandalous creatures with a keen eye and irresistible energy…Readers fascinated by Upper East Side life will be mesmerized by Boncompagni’s sparkling depiction and may have to fight the temptation to read it all in one sitting.’ Publishers Weekly

‘A real-life New York socialite, Boncompagni knows her subject intimately. She can slip readers into a pair of high-heel Christian Louboutins and through the doors of a hedgie home themed in Chinese antiquities. Seeing how the moneyed set lives offers a funny – and sometimes sobering – look at people hogtied by their own wealth….’
Washington Post

Product Description

The fall from the top can be a long one…

Eager to play the part of dutiful wife, down-to-earth Marcy Ermerson agrees to relocate from Chicago to New York City when her husband is offered a big-time job managing a hedge fund. Leaving behind her own dreams, Marcy forgoes finding a new job in favour of trying to start a family. Besides, as she soon discovers, hedge fund wives don't work, they play. Hard.…

Although at first it's fun to shop and party, Marcy quickly realizes that to find her feet in this new world of excess and superficiality she needs true friends. Only problem is behind every smile lurks a stab in the back.

But it's not until her suddenly social climbing husband abruptly leaves her for his thinner, blonder mistress, that Marcy decides it's time to stand on her own two feet and fight for the things that are far more important than money.

In the throes of the credit crunch, this tantalising tale is perfect for fans of Sex and the City and The Devil Wears Prada who still want a bit of bling for their buck.

5.0 out of 5 stars A feat of Fabulosity! 7 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having read a few books about the bank collapses that have covered the more serious economic side of the fallout, I decided to take this more frivolous account for a test drive, and was not disappointed! Marcy, the heroine of the story, gives up her own promising career to move to New York with her husband to support his career as a trader. Marcy sticks out like a sore thumb but soon makes friends with a like minded HFW who has her own career. The horrors are all there though - the botoxed, size zero, plucked to perfection gold diggers but the author makes them more then one dimensional, and there are one or two that you even get to like a little more by the end. I enjoyed every minute of it - the shopping, the politics, the backstabbing, the outrageous shows of wealth at a time when everyone else was losing the shirt of their backs. Marcy, however, is someone you get to seriosuly admire, and her true personality and drive finally emerge as the story progresses. I could not put this book down and if you want to be seriously entertained give it a go.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull 8 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good start but ultimately disappointing. Over all I felt it was simply a vehicle for the author to show off her knowledge of various topics, for example private banking, US real estate and the economic climate of 2009. I felt the plot was loosely woven around this. The ending was lame and lazy as if author had got bored and just wanted to wrap it up quickly. The `good' characters get all the success and happiness they want and the `bad' ones get their comeuppance. I wouldn't even recommend this as beach read, stick with Jackie Collins.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sorry - cannot agree with the good reviews! 3 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this book because it was cheap and fancied a light read. Sadly, the only thing this novel is `light' on is any type of writing skill.

I am not a reader of the insultingly titled `chick lit' but if this is a good example of it then I won't be sampling any more: the heroine was annoying, the story was predictable (with a ridiculously sickly happy-ending), and the writing was just plain rubbish. The narrative includes loads of explanatory details which are superfluous, clunky, and don't add to the story. Plus, the pace of the story is completely off. It's clear from the book description that the main character's husband is going to leave her but this doesn't actually happen until halfway through which means there is very little space left in the novel for anything the reader is unaware of. The split should definitely come in earlier and then more time can be given towards making the ending even slightly believable.

If all you want is a hearts-and-flowers ending with very little decent story-telling then this is the book for you. If you want more than that then avoid at all costs.

I loved this book. To be honest I only bought it because I was waiting on my regular authors to release new books. The book was well written and really easy to read. I would recommend this to anyone.
