Meet Tali, Schuyler, and Kim. Best friends since college, each twenty-something (okay, almost thirty) has seen her share of career foils and romantic foibles in the world's greatest city, New York. Having been friends for more than a decade, they know that they all need a change. On Valentine's Day, they are each alone for one reason or another. At dinner together, the trio makes a pact. Within one year, each woman will change the thing that most challenges her.

For Tali, good Tali, whose boyfriend of five years just left her for a personal trainer, it will be to find romance -- or a fling -- in every foreign country she visits (and given her job as a secret shopper for high-end resorts, she goes to a lot of foreign countries). For Schuyler, a book editor, her goal is to get on the other side of the typewriter and write her own book -- much to the dismay of her boyfriend, who is a Very Public Figure. And for commitment-phobic, Daddy's little rich-girl, Kim (she can't hold a job, or a boyfriend, unless he's married and therefore erratic and unattainable) , her goal is to have an engagement ring and a house in Scarsdale.

Each woman starts the first day of the year of reckoning with the best of intentions -- which is exactly why the pact goes immediately, and exceptionally, awry.

Filled with the delicious insider details (of a celebrity-level, or celebrity-wannabe, lifestyle), Chasing Harry Winston brings listeners once again into the heart of an elite world, where friendships will be tested to the point of breaking.

Let the games begin.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shawn | 2/16/2014

    " I wanted to see if I would like this book since reading The Devil Wears Prada but it too was disappointing. the main characters are not very likable and the situations they get into are way too contrived and wrap up way too neatly. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kari | 2/14/2014

    " Meh. Kept waiting to like the characters I was reading about. While the girls did improve, I found them to be awfully self-centered. Just wasn't a very compelling read, even if it was supposed to be light-hearted and a fun vacation story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelly | 1/31/2014

    " Good vacation read -- but the writing is cliche. I rolled my eyes for the first half of the book, but once I got going I was rooting for the juicy stuff to happen. It didn't let me down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina | 1/29/2014

    " A great girly day at the beach read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Justin Muzzi | 1/23/2014

    " Not as good as the Devil Wears Prada, but a good read none-the-less. Good for anyone who cares about fashion, money, power, and love. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marissa | 1/20/2014

    " No idea why this has received such terrible reviews, I thought it was entertaining! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginny | 1/8/2014

    " I enjoyed this book only because it was my beach read. It was cute but nothing spectacular. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Karen | 12/31/2013

    " So awful that I couldn't finish. A huge disappointment after The Devil Wears Prada. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stacey | 12/31/2013

    " Silly, shallow, selfish smut. I kept reading sure that at some point this book and these characters would develop some redeeming quality but it never happened. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Becky | 12/20/2013

    " Page after page of crap with added amounts of stupidity. This book lowered my iQ. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amy Hampton | 12/16/2013

    " Personally I was let down by the simple story line and 'girl chasing dream of finding the perfect man'. Ugh, enough already. I enjoyed The Devil Wears Prada but this one is enough for me to STOP reading her books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stacy | 12/16/2013

    " I want another book with these characters,,please:) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ana Gomez | 11/15/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber Couch | 9/23/2013

    " Not as good as her first two, but this satisfied my need for reading something not on the YA list. Ended just as I thought it would with no surprises. Good, easy beach read. I wish the characters had been a bit more engaging (maybe stick to one in-depth rather than three superficially). "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kiarra | 6/11/2013

    " Waiting for something interesting to happen. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jessica Davis | 4/22/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth A | 11/22/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela Blackburn | 9/19/2012

    " Good, quick, read. Teaching women to do what they want and what is best for them. Only thing I didn't like was that everyone felt that sex was just like a handshake. Other than that, I loved the characters and the story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Caroline Willingham | 8/24/2012

    " Awful. I kept reading only because I had nothing else and the nearest bookstore was an hour away. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noy Monaco | 4/2/2012

    " The book was sweet and I did like it. But the end was unexpected, but still good. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jana | 3/15/2012

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kesha | 8/30/2011

    " I don't know why I continue to buy books by this author - I never like them very much. This book was no exception. The storyline was incredibly predictable, the characters annoying and the writing was poor. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lori | 7/18/2011

    " Definitely a beach read. Not much depth, but entertaining like Sex in the City. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda | 5/23/2011

    " This was my least favorite Lauren Weisberger book. It just seemed as if she had used the same characters and the book was kind of boring. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 annelise | 5/21/2011

    " Read if you enjoy cliches, stereotypes and lazy writing. Awful. The kind of tripe that gives chick-lit a bad name. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacey | 5/20/2011
