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.

    " 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. "

    " 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 by 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. "

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