From the moment Emma Sutton walks into the FitzCoopers auction house, the disgraced media darling knows exactly what she wants: an antique dining table. What she gets is a chance to set things right.

Fresh from a yearlong stretch in prison, Emma finds her life just as she left it - filled with glittering business successes, bruising personal defeats, rolling television cameras, and awkward Sunday dinners at home. She needs a clean slate - a second chance that might be provided by two unlikely saviors: Benjamin Blackman, a terminally charming social worker and Emma's part-time assistant, and one of Benjamin's most heartbreaking wards, an overweight little girl from Queens named Gracie.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 12/6/2013

    " The book was well written and the character development was good, but I didn't get really excited by any character. It came full circle in the end, but I was constantly hoping for more and it never came. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenda | 11/22/2013

    " I really enjoyed this "Matha Stewart" character, and I enjoyed the overall theme that all of us can make different choices, no matter the path we are on. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Patricia | 10/24/2013

    " This is a thinly veiled book about a Martha Stewart like person. There are some surprise personal growth and insight by the characters as they interact even with Emma (aka Martha). Good if you like dogs, interior decorating, and an ensemble of people who become like a family. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 9/21/2013

    " A decent story, comedy of manners about a Martha Stewart-like character and the people around her. Cute read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cheryl | 8/9/2013

    " In retrospect and in light of conversation with lovely Ruthie I had to admit that this book might be one of the worst I read all year, even given that I read it at the pool. Pretty thin. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shari | 5/31/2013

    " Not much to say about this book. There was no real depth - the story line & characters were okay (the main character has a lot of Martha Stewart traits that have been portrayed in the media). Easy weekend read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy S | 5/17/2013

    " Fun read. Starts with some interesting character development but ending wraps too quickly like the author ran out of time? "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Donna Ziegler | 11/27/2012

    " Obviously a Martha Stewart spoof, it leaves one sad for Martha. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Whitney | 11/26/2012

    " A fluffy book, but fun to read, and you have to love that the object of desire is a Nakashima table...without a single picture. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sarah | 11/7/2012

    " Ugh. Terrible! Completely unsympathetic characters. I didn't even bother finishing the novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 8/23/2012

    " I actually really liked this book...it's a quick read and if you are a fan of Martha Stewart it is a fun read although the story is fairly predictable. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Hillary | 6/20/2012

    " I'm not sure this book even deserves one star. Felt like a poorly fictionalized account of Martha Stewart, which barely scatched the surface of the otherwise potentially interesting charcters in the book. Wouldn't recommend this one unless you are look for a fast, mindless read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenny | 4/29/2012

    " Dry. It was almost like 2 books in 1. I kept waiting for the characters to cross paths - once they did, there was only about 20 pages or less left and it all wrapped up way too quickly for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie | 4/7/2012

    " Eh, there are better uses of your time out there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 3/2/2012

    " Loved it! Ties in well w/ "An Object of Beauty." Art world in New York. Doesn't take itself too seriously. About how our relationships redeem us. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kim | 2/29/2012

    " I could only identify with one character from this book and that was 9 year old Gracie. Emma is ala Martha Stewart and the rest are shallowly developed characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne | 1/31/2012

    " I cannot recall where I saw this book and added it to my list. "
