In this delicious new novel, Tatiana Boncompagni creates a heroine everyone will love…and no one will ever forget.
As Lily Bartholomew navigates kiddie birthday parties starring chart-topping entertainment, society dinner-dances where any woman larger than a size 2 can barely stand to show her Botoxed face, and vacations to exclusive hideaways with the mother-in-law from hell, she constantly wonders, “On what planet have I landed?”
After all, she’s just a down-to-earth gal from suburbia who felt as if she’d landed in the middle of a fairy tale when she married Robert. He’s handsome, rich, and—best of all—able to make her laugh, and she happily jumped headfirst into his world. But now Robert’s lost his job, Lily hasn’t lost her pregnancy weight, and their once-golden existence seems suddenly tarnished.
Desperate to regain her self-esteem, Lily begins writing essays about life among the rich and snobbish, which tosses her into the spotlight and in the path of social disaster. But as Lily navigates her way through the shark-infested waters of Manhattan society, she starts to rediscover her own place in the world—and how to regain what truly matters.
Tatiana opens the door to society and trust fund marriages. It is a great read that will keep you guessing, right up until the last moment! I anxiously turned page after page wanting to know if Lily would survive the treachery of her new position in society. You will cheer! You will laugh out loud! The writing is light and conversational. For those of you leery of language and sex, no worries here. It is a clean read.
I suggest this as a good popcorn read.
The book is 297 pages long and is in paperback.
