Lively young socialite Nancy Carrington-Chambers has always believed an excellent sense of style and strict attention to detail are what it takes to succeed, but her own husband Todd is showing symptoms of incurable tackiness, so Nancy flees their McMansion for her posh San Francisco apartment. She knows her event planning company, Froth, is a real winner, but she must prove herself by reinventing the turgid Barbary Coast Historical Museum fundraiser. Luckily, Nancy now has the perfect assistant. Derek Cathcart is British, impeccably dressed, gorgeous, and clearly gay-so why does Nancy find him so attractive?

 Before Nancy can unravel her feelings, her irresponsible cousin Birdie abandons her little daughter with Nancy and takes off. Nancy, Derek, and Eugenia make an unlikely family, but strangely it seems incredibly right. Now Nancy's parents are pressuring her to return to Todd, and she still has to pull off a spectacular party. For someone who's always known exactly where she's going, Nancy is in dangerously uncharted waters.

Irresistibly funny and romantic, Nancy's Theory of Style shows that happiness and love-just like fashion-aren't about playing it safe.

    " Tissue thin and told in the POV of a very dumb woman. Who does not become smarter. The romance was obvious and hackneyed. And yet somehow I read through all of it. It was one of those weekends I guess... "

    " I didn't like Nancy at first and wasn't sure if I'd like the book, but then came Eugenia. Nancy revealed herself and I loved her and the book! "

    " Another great book by Marta Acosta (aka Grace Coopersmith). A fun quick book to read with lots of laugh out loud bits... "

    " The book is enchanting and has alot of good humor... it is not as sappy as some are nor as funny but it has some really good qualities, and I have not been able to put it down. "

    " Nice detail, humor and SF setting "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mandy | 8/6/2013

    " Just hard to get into. All of the puns she did on grammer or phrases seemed confusing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 8/1/2013

    " Nancy's Theory of Style was not a book I enjoyed at all. Maybe it is the genre, but I did not care for any of the characters. This book has received wonderful reviews, so do look at those who enjoyed this book. Unfortunately, it was not for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 7/9/2013

    " I didn't think i would actually enjoy this book, but once i got past the main character's attitude, i rather enjoyed it. it was a fast read with several plot twists that were fairly apparent, but hoenstly, what can you expect from a fluff novel "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 5/1/2013

    " eh, ok - but nothing fantastic and not one that I'd recommend. "

    " I want to be Nancy when I grow up. "
