I Give This Book 4 Stars
Description: After bidding good-bye to New York's brightest star, Elizabeth Holland, rumors continue to fly about her untimely demise.
All eyes are on those closest to the dearly departed: her mischievous sister, Diana, now the family's only hope for redemption; New York's most notorious cad, Henry Schoonmaker, the flame Elizabeth never extinguished; the seductive Penelope Hayes, poised to claim all that her best friend left behind—including Henry; even Elizabeth's scheming former maid, Lina Broud, who discovers that while money matters and breeding counts, gossip is the new currency.
As old friends become rivals, Manhattan's most dazzling socialites find their futures threatened by whispers from the past. In this delicious sequel to The Luxe, nothing is more dangerous than a scandal . . . or more precious than a secret.
I'm still drawn to the covers of these books. The dresses featured are gorgeous! I rated this 4 stars but I didn't enjoy it quite as much as the first. This seems to be common for me. The second in the series tends to be my least favorite. Still, there's plenty of gossip, scandal, and surprises in this one. I hoping Penelope redeems herself at some point in the series because she's currently winning for biggest b****. I was shocked at the ending. I have Envy in store for next week. I've read in a couple places in its the best in the series so far.
