even better than the first! I read this all after I got home from school last night and I am now desperately grasping for a copy of Envy (the next in the Luxe series)!
it is full of rumours, as the title suggests and the secrets are darker than ever.
a must read!

Well, everyone's in love with the one person they can't have and no one seems to be able to communicate their woe to anyone who could help. Must be Tuesday in Luxeland. Rumors is the second volume in the Luxe series and, as the deep red dress and haughty gaze of the cover model suggest, things are just getting worse and worse for our crew of Manhattan debutantes/bachelors/scheming underlings. I checked this copy out from the library and the girl at the checkout desk smiled knowingly and said, "I liked this one." I smiled and said, "I just finished The Luxe." Her grin got bigger. "I liked this one much better," she said. So. There you go. I was beginning to get the impression that lovers of The Luxe fell into two categories: even bigger lovers or big time haters of Rumors. I was interested to see which category I fell into (if any).

So everyone thinks Elizabeth Holland is dead. And pretty soon (oh, let's go ahead and say it) shockingly soon, everyone thinks Henry Schoonmaker should just say enough with the mourning and go ahead and marry Penelope Hayes since it is clear they were Meant To Be. What with the being rich and hot and whatnot. But then Elizabeth Holland is not actually dead, is she? And Henry is not actually in love with Penelope, is he? Meanwhile, Lina is masquerading about as a mining heiress from Utah (LOL), Penelope is advancing on Henry like a post-coital black widow, and the weight of the world rests squarely on Diana's little shoulders as she is the one who is now expected to make a most advantageous marriage to save the family name. Just not the advantageous marriage she'd like to make.

I liked this one. Liked it just as much as the first one, in fact. I continue to enjoy Diana and Henry and what's going on there.

Wow. I've just finished this book and I am just amazed.
It's extremely well written: lots of scandal and romance! In the last book I was a bit annoyed about the lack of focus on Diana and Henry but they are the main focus of this book :)
I actually can't think of any words to describe this.
Great book, I highly recommend it. Just look out for the unexpected ending! Can't wait to get my hands on Envy!!

Thought this was better than the Luxe, really enjoyed it. The characters are a bit two dimensional at times but the story has enough twists and turns to make up for it. Hated the ending for Elizabeth's character but still looking forward to the next one.

Format: Paperback
This is book 2 of the Luxe series by Anna Godbersen, and is just as good if not better than the first - The Luxe.

It is almost two months now since Elizabeth's death, or Elizabeth's faked death at least, and Mrs Holland - Elizabeth's mother, is now focused on Elizabeth's younger sister Diana, who although young at only 16, she is now looking to marry off to try to save the family from their increasing debt problems.

Diana, and Penelope - the girl who orchestrated Elizabeth's disappearance, are the only ones who know the truth about Elizabeth's 'death', but Diana alone is aware that her sister is now living with their old coachman Will in California. The boy that she fell in love with as a child.

Henry - Elizabeth's fiancé, is in mourning for Elizabeth, even though he did not really love her, and feels guilty that her death may not have been an accident, as he knows that she knew about the affair he was having with her younger sister Diana. Henry himself though is biding his time, until a reasonable amount has passed in which to appear proper, before he can marry Diana who he actually does love. His best friend Teddy feels that it is in poor taste to marry his dead fiancé's younger sister, and tries to convince Henry of this, while Penelope continues her scheming to be Henry's wife, getting his step-mother on side in her quest for his attention.

Diana, although happy that Elizabeth is not dead, can't help but feel a little put-out by the fact that her mother is now setting her up with countless eligible bachelors who she can't stand, when in fact she is also very much in love with Henry, and also waiting until an appropriate time for them to be together.

How anyone could give this one star I cannot understand. If you read the first book you have to read the rest in the series anyway! Henry and Diana get really close in this one and the storyline is just as interesting as in the first book.

Would recommend, don't stop at number 1!
