just finished reading...

I've been staring at the screen for a few minutes trying to figure out if I liked this book. The premise is good the execution is not so good. I liked that the characters were invested in their careers and their families. I didn't like that the secondary characters were one-dimensional cliches. I liked how the three women are brought together. I liked how their friendships grew and they supported each other. I didn't like the cutesy horoscopes that introduced each new section. I didn't like how each section was in a different character's point of view; well, I think that's what the author was trying to do.

When I was looking up the publishing information, I read a blurb about the author who is a Page Six gossip columnist who is giving us an insider's perspective. And that makes sense. It had the feeling of authenticity in the absurdity of the hustle and social climbing.

I am *so* with you re: this book. The woman can write, I just wonder if she has anything to say.
