Having read Linda Francis Lee's previous book, 'Ladies Who Lunch' (also known as 'The Ex-Débutante') I was pleased to find that she had written another book on the same subject matter - the lives of society women in Texas.
The basic premise of the story is the central character, Carlisle Wainright Cushing, has left Texas and become a top lawyer in Boston. She returns to Texas after a phone call from her mother, and proceeds to become involved in not only negotiating her mother's divorce settlement, but organising the town's 100th annual débutante ball, and at the same time dealing with a host of other problems including a complicated ex who she still has feelings for and her crazy family members. The book is well written, entertaining and gives mention to some of the same characters we first met in 'Ladies Who Lunch'. If you enjoyed 'Ladies Who Lunch', I would definitely recommend this.
Note - this book is also known as 'The Devil in the Junior League'.
