"Married girls in New York these days put almost as much effort into losing husbands as they once did into finding them."

In 2004, Plum Sykes jet-setted to bestsellerdom with Bergdorf Blondes, a playful debut novel that introduced readers to the glamorous world of PAPs (Park Avenue Princesses). Now the fabulous girls from the world of Bergdorf Blondes are back.

Lauren Blount’s life is beautifully arranged: she’s very rich, very young, very thin, very pretty -- and very, very divorced. She is the most reckless and glamorous of Manhattan’s Debutante Divorcée set. Lauren captivates Sylvia Mortimer, the group’s token newlywed. But while Lauren sets out on a morality-lite, orgasm-heavy "Make Out Challenge," Sylvia discovers her marriage isn’t exactly an Eternity ad -- especially when the city’s most notorious Husband Huntress zeros in on her spouse.

Navigating a world of Divorce Showers and Power Christenings, Socialite Babies, Professional Friends, Gorgeous West Village Wives, and Un-Googleable Men, Sylvia fears her husband is straying and starts asking, as Lauren says, "Who needs a husband anyway?" With her delightful mix of charm, cheek, and satire, Sykes has written a second novel that promises to be every bit as beloved as her smash debut.

From AudioFile:

Sonya Walger immerses the listener in this audio with her clear voice and British accent. Lauren, a wealthy New York divorcŽe, is on her divorce honeymoon when she meets Sylvia, a British woman who is on her wedding honeymoon--alone--because of her husband's work commitments. Walger capably switches from Sylvia's British accent to Lauren's more nasal American tones. Lauren's voice is filled with inflection and a touch of humor as she takes her wealth and recent divorce in stride. As Sylvia finds herself amid Manhattan's Debutante Divorcees, her developing distrust in her new husband is revealed in her hesitant voice. Walger's skilled character differentiation helps listeners enjoy a clever story. S.M. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
