I Give This Book 4 Stars
Description: Two months after Elizabeth Holland's dramatic homecoming, Manhattan eagerly awaits her return to the pinnacle of society. When Elizabeth refuses to rejoin her sister Diana's side, however, those watching New York's favorite family begin to suspect that all is not as it seems behind the stately doors of No. 17 Gramercy Park South.
Farther uptown, Henry and Penelope Schoonmaker are the city's most celebrated couple. But despite the glittering diamond ring on Penelope's finger, the newlyweds share little more than scorn for each other. And while the newspapers call Penelope's social-climbing best friend, Carolina Broad, an heiress, her fortune—and her fame—are anything but secure, especially now that one of society's darlings is slipping tales to the eager press.
In this next thrilling installment of Anna Godbersen's bestselling Luxe series, Manhattan's most envied residents appear to have everything they desire: Wealth. Beauty. Happiness. But sometimes the most practiced smiles hide the most scandalous secrets. . . .
I agree with those who say that this is the best so far in the series. I couldn't put this one down. I felt so sorry for Elizabeth, but was so glad to see the author took it in the direction she did as far as her character goes. I'm also hoping things work out some how for Diana and Henry. I've enjoyed watching their characters grow and change. While I still think Penelope is a witch, I was beginning to feel sorry for her towards the end of the book. I'm not sure how I feel about that. I can't wait for the final book!
