Remember the time before the recession? When the talk was about designer labels, the stock market, and keeping up with the Joneses?
Yeah, me neither. But I know you’re out there.
Plume/Penguin sent me a new beach read recently, and it was pure escapism. I did read it on the beach, and it was oh so light and decadant, like a chocolate cupcake. This tale of two (ex?) sisters-in-law, and the men they married, met, and dated was a quick and easy read, not too filling, but a nice surprise on a rainy day.
If this sounds like something you’re into — and you adore characters who speak in designer labels and movie lines, pick up The Ex-Mrs. Hedgefund, by Jill Kargman, available in softcover in May. (But do flip through and check for page 50 before you buy it. My first review copy was missing pages 39-102 entirely.)
Disclosure: A copy was sent to me for review.
