Jealous whispers.

Old rivalries.

New betrayals.

Two months after Elizabeth Holland's dramatic homecoming, Manhattan eagerly awaits her return to the pinnacle of society. When Elizabeth refuses to rejoin her sister Diana's side, however, those watching New York's favorite family begin to suspect that all is not as it seems behind the stately doors of No. 17 Gramercy Park South.

Farther uptown, Henry and Penelope Schoonmaker are the city's most celebrated couple. But despite the glittering diamond ring on Penelope's finger, the newlyweds share little more than scorn for each other. And while the newspapers call Penelope's social-climbing best friend, Carolina Broad, an heiress, her fortune—and her fame—are anything but secure, especially now that one of society's darlings is slipping tales to the eager press.

In this next thrilling installment of Anna Godbersen's bestselling Luxe series, Manhattan's most envied residents appear to have everything they desire: Wealth. Beauty. Happiness. But sometimes the most practiced smiles hide the most scandalous secrets. . . .

    " I gave this 3 stars because I felt it got off to a slow start. Overall I hate Caro"Lina". Love Diana. Really want to smack Penelope. However she really is the life to the story. I even have a soft spot for Miss Elizabeth Holland, and oh dear Henry... I can't wait for the conclusion of The Luxe series. "

    " Really, could it get any worse? And why haven't the characters learned anything? It's like they just keep on doing what they've been doing even though it hasn't worked for them real well to this point. Just more bad choices and sad outcomes. Lots of innuendo and such just as the other books. "
