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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The pages practically turn themselves.”

    New York Daily News

  • “Lily Rabe throws herself enthusiastically into her narration; she sounds like she’s having a ball, and listeners will, too. Rabe especially has fun with over-the-top Brazilian sexpot Adriana, making melodramatic pronouncements and calling everyone ‘querida’ in a sexy, throaty exotic accent. She’s also great as Emmy, the marriage-and-family–obsessed member of the trio: Rabe’s sobbing, outraged delivery of Emmy’s rant about her boyfriend dumping her for his personal trainer is simultaneously touching and hilarious. Leigh is the “straight man” of the group, but Rabe’s performance conveys her doubts about her engagement realistically and sympathetically. This fun audio brings out the best in the novel.”

    " I picked this up at the library because of the author; I had read her before. Don't bother. It's slow, why did I keep reading it, I ask myself? I was completely turned off with the plot lines. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorraine | 1/15/2014

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ashley Lyle | 1/6/2014

    " It was so bad I couldn't finish it. I loved Devil Wears Prada and Everyone Worth Knowing, so I was excited when this one came out. What a waste of money. It was terrible. TERRIBLE. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen (A Book and a Latte) | 1/4/2014

    " Fun read (or rather, listen). I really liked the characters and their story lines. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jimmie | 12/21/2013

    " It was entertaining but nothing really special. It really hit the spot considering I was yearning for some chic-lit. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Meredith | 12/15/2013

    " Vapid, self-indulgent and terrible! I would ne'er want to meet these girls...ever. Don't waste your time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeiflyn Dizon | 12/9/2013

    " One star for each main character. It had a very promising start, but an ending left wanting. An enjoyable read when you have absolutely nothing else to do. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jo | 12/8/2013

    " If you are expecting anything that is remotely close to The Devil Wears Prada, then I am sorry to disappoint you! There were funny moments in the story. I particularly liked Adriana as I was able to relate to her for some degree ... but the book could have been better! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katelyn Stark | 11/30/2013

    " A yummy escape from reality. Top notch chick lit! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen Richer | 11/28/2013

    " Very cute quick read. It's hard to find a book that I don't have to think too much about, but keeps me interested. Once I cracked this paperback, I couldn't put it down. The story of the three main characters may or may not be carbon copies of my best girlfriends. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chiny | 11/19/2013

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Juanita | 8/23/2013

    " skip it - the book is trying to be sex and the city and it's not. Go watch Sex and the City and enjoy that instead. "

    " Pretty typical but it had some moments. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kesha | 2/9/2013

    " 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 Kimberli | 1/6/2013

    " Not nearly as good as Devil Wears Prada. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Caroline Willingham | 8/23/2012

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen Thompson | 8/19/2012

    " An enjoyable pleasure read by the author of The Devil Wears Prada. You can't help but fall in love with all three main characters and find you relate to one or all of them. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Turtlegirl00 | 7/25/2012

    " This was not great, but it at least kept me entertained when I was unable to sleep... yes, generic, no "twists", and not very beleivable. I have read worse, and hope to read better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bcastle | 5/1/2012

    " Loved Devil Wears Prada, so I was excited to read another book by the author. Unfortunately this book was fairly predictable and I found myself not fully immersed in the story, easy to let the mind wander as I turned the pages. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tiera | 4/6/2012

    " This easy chick read ended up taking me several weeks to get through... I mean, there were decent enough characters and storyline, but somehow I just couldn't get into it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Christine | 1/13/2012

    " Ugh. I was super excited after her first two novels and bummed by this one. Not even worth a library check out. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sartan | 12/30/2011

    " This book was dirty, and wasn't all that entertaining. My mom picked it up at the Library Book Fair for 25 cents. It was about worth that much! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Adeline PERAUDEAU | 12/15/2011

    " Beaucoup moins bien que le diable s'habille en Prada... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Karen | 9/13/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Megan | 7/11/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanna | 7/4/2011

    " Such a fun read. I have passed it around to all my gfs "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda | 6/14/2011

    " A little slow to start, but now I'm really getting into it. The characters have been well developed, and the plot follows each character individually. Not as good as "The Devil Wears Prada", but worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gabrielle | 6/9/2011

    " Eh, it was okay. Nothing special. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cami | 5/31/2011

    " I almost stopped reading this book because I could not get into it at all... It was boring and had no excitement. The end did get a little better, but all in all I was just glad to be done. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 5/29/2011

    " I thought the book was a great chick lit story but it ended a little too abruptly. It was almost like the author got tired of writing it and just wrapped it up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 della | 5/29/2011

    " A fun read..perfect beach book! I have also enjoyed her other books "

    " Holiday reading part 5,000: Unsympathetic characters and too much label/exotic place name dropping, but it's a beach read. What did you expect? 2.5 stars "

    " A fun and easy read! I look forward to more from this author. "

  • 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

    " Meh. Unlike Devil Wears Prada, I did not really like several of these women. Beach read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tannis | 5/7/2011

    " Meh. The book felt like it was trying to hard. It wasn't anywhere near The Devil Wears Prada. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Narnia | 5/5/2011

    " So much fun! I love all three of the girls and especially the parrot. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Donna | 4/15/2011

    " This was a fun, light read. Great for a beach read or vacation reading. You don't have to think too much and the topics are not difficult in the storylines. Characters are kind of stereotypical and slightly underdeveloped, but overall it was a fun read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doriane | 4/12/2011

    " Great! What Lauren says about relationships and especially men in this book is sooooo true! Great time reading this, and it made me laugh quite often too :) "
