After years of searching for and finally landing that one perfect man, four Manhattan friends find themselves simultaneously questioning their romantic choices. Smart, strong, but jaded divorce lawyer India Chumley leads this pack of feisty thirty-somethings, all friends since grade school at the Sibley School, an Upper East Side institution for sophisticated ladies-in-training. There’s Abby Rosenfeld Adams, a Jewish gallery owner married to her WASP college sweetheart; Monique Dawkins-Dubois, gynecologist and card-carrying member of Harlem’s thriving Buppie-ocracy; and Esme Sarmiento Talbot, a Colombian heiress married to the All-American boy next door. When India, the most straightlaced of them all, learns that her friends are considering straying from their partners, she is dismayed. That is, until India’s ex-fiancé—the love of her life, the destroyer of her heart, and the best sex ever—comes back into the picture, and she finds herself caught between the dependable man she thought was her future and the man she never quite let go of.

Against the backdrop of New York at its most glamorous, One Flight Up is a delicious debut from a talented new writer.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christine | 1/10/2014

    " Not my type of book but I read it for my book club. This books tells the story of 4 friends who are successful and smart but still dumb enough to risk their marriages in meaningless affairs. Some of the book cover blurbs described the book as a great beach read, I guess because of all the gratuitous sexual situations, but I found them sad instead of fun. There are certain books where the actions of the characters get me so annoyed that I don't enjoy the book, and this was one of them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 11/14/2013

    " Pure trashy reading...marriage, affairs, scandals, etc. However, I read it in three days. No particular redeeming value, but a fun, enjoyable, sex-in-the-city type read! Excellent beach read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 10/21/2013

    " A story of a group of women and their relationships and how they came about cheating on their other halves. And the consequences of those cheating relationships. More of a how-to/not how to instead of a good story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tray | 9/8/2013

    " A book for the girls. Although the guys might enjoy it. Pretty steamy in some respects "

    " Great story filled with lots of drama. "

    " I liked how the author writes but I didn't really like the book as a whole...the entire time I felt like screaming "STOP YOU KNOW THIS WILL END BADLY." "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Liz | 5/18/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ciana | 5/8/2013

    " This book started out a real page turner. But by the time I got to chapter 45, I was ready for her to wrap up the story (and it didn't end until 12 chapters later)!!! Definitely a good read, but a hard lesson for the heroine doesn't make the ending as satisfying as I had hoped. "

    " Just OK at best .... I can't really recommend. "

    " Hard to read because I wanted to smack the main character India and all of her friends in the face. entertaining enough. can't say that I would recommend. Decent summer reading. Oh...to have the "problems" of these chicks! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 5/14/2012

    " A little disappointed with this one. The women did not have many redeemable qualities and I don't know that et learned their lesson in the end. Plus the brand name dropping was a bit too much for me. It was a quick read, but I was not 100% satisfied. "
