From New York Times bestselling author Plum Sykes comes the delicious follow-up to Bergdorf Blondes, a hilarious tale of marriage, friendship and divorce.
Filled with wit and charm, The Debutante Divorcée stars Sylvie Mortimer, a recently married socialite who is quick to discover that her marriage is far from photo-perfect. Her best friend, Lauren Blount, the chic-est of the Debutante Divorcées, is basking in her freedom, taking solo honeymoons, having divorce showers, and pursuing any man she chooses as part of her “Make-Out Challenge.” And Sylvie’s perfect Town & Country life is about to be rocked by a divine and dangerous predator – the very rich, very young, very thin, and very divorced Husband Huntress.
A few weeks ago I read, reviewed and surprisingly enjoyed Plum Sykes’ Bergdorf Blondes, and now I can easily say the same for The Debutante Divorcée. I think I even enjoyed this second light, funny novel a bit more than the first (though there were still several moments when I felt incredibly frustrated with the characters). Sykes once again brilliantly transported me into the foreign-to-me world of New York society and, with an entertaining and diverse cast of characters, drew me into a twisted yet charming storyline on marriage and divorce. Despite how far removed their social lives are from mine, I couldn’t help but hope that all would turn out well for Sylvie and her friends – I do love a good happy ending. Of course, as with Bergdorf Blondes, I understand this is not the book for everyone, but again, I think readers of chick lit will find The Debutante Divorcée a smart, amusing read and I would recommend it.
