Set in the 1950s, Lady Be Good is Amber Brock's mesmerizing return, sweeping readers into the life of the mischievous, status-obsessed daughter of a hotel magnate, and into the charged cities of New York and Miami.

Kitty Tessler is the idle and mischievous only child of self-made hotel and nightclub magnate Nicolas Tessler. Like any good socialite, she spends her days shopping and her nights at one of her father's clubs. But the fun comes to an abrupt halt when her father issues an ultimatum: Kitty must marry his second-in-command, Andre, and take her place in his hotel empire. If she doesn't, her father will see to it that she makes her way up in the business the way he did-- cleaning rooms and doing laundry. Kitty's forced to come up with a wily and elaborate plan to protect her own plans for the future, as well as to save her best friend, Henrietta Bancroft, from a doomed engagement: Kitty will steal Henrietta's fiancé, a fabulously wealthy but terribly unkind man of Manhattan elite, securing her place on the social ladder and keeping her friend from a miserable marriage.

When Kitty meets Max, a member of a band visiting New York from her father's Miami club, her plans take a turn. Smitten, but still eager to convince her father of her commitment to Andre, Kitty and Hen follow Max, Andre, and the rest of the band back down to Miami. Though her feelings for Max deepen, her well-intended yet manipulative efforts backfire, and Kitty's forced to reconsider her choices and her future before she loses everyone she loves.
