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.
I loved Plum Sykes' novel, Bergdorf Blondes, because it was funny, smart, and entertaining. It was the epitome of a chick lit book, which is a genre I love. So, color me surprised when I had to declare her second novel, The Debutante Divorcee, a DNF - a book I did not finish! Ugh! I was so disappointed. I was all set to read another engaging book by Sykes, but instead found myself faced with an annoying and rather dull read. The story was too superficial in all aspects - the characters were stereotypical caricatures of socialites (they were beyond vapid) and the insipid story line had me rolling my eyes from the very beginning (this was not a good sign). So, I stopped reading. This book just wasn't for me. However, I think you should find out what other bloggers have to say about this book before you decide if you want to give a read.
