Jacks Power: the prodigal son, heir to millions, built his own Manhattan real estate empire and revels in seeing his moniker on glittering skyscrapers around the city. Here’s a man who always loved to see his name in ink. Until now.

Cynthia Hunsaker Power: the epitome of elegance and society, the former prima ballerina met a struggling painter, fell in love, and only later learned she’d won the Power lottery.

The morning after the Power silver anniversary gala at the Waldorf, Jacks appears twice in the New York Post—once gallantly dancing with his wife of twenty-five years; and once hand-in-hand with Lara Sizemore, morning television star, exiting her Upper West Side apartment building that very same night.

Let the Divorce Games begin.

Whether they’re changing the locks on each other in their Park Avenue triplex or sabotaging each other’s dinner parties, the Powers’ split-up will trump the most scandalous divorces known to polite New York society. It’s a battle of wits, of charm, of two of the biggest egos—and personalities and bank accounts—in Manhattan, and neither side will go down without a fight.

    " Pretty good...although the ending was a little flat. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 2/17/2014

    " Fun read. Makes me want to learn ballet. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Edna | 2/10/2014

    " I was over it mid-way through. Luckily I like the way Grazier writes or I would've not finished it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrea Stegman | 2/9/2014

    " A true beach book - predictable plot, sex, money, high stakes divorce, etc. - but hey, it's summer! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee | 2/6/2014

    " Power couple hits the skids...husband never knew his wife...ultimately a sad story of wasted years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annie | 1/18/2014

    " Just as the reviews say: "Its War of the Roses fought by the Real Housewives of New York". Great mindless read. A bit predictable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sydna | 1/16/2014

    " Her writing style annoys me. The style is merely a continuous stream of conversation back and forth, which is short, choppy, and irritating to read. This book, much like her other one I think, would make a better movie. Just not motivated to finish it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 MaryHelen | 1/13/2014

    " Not my favorite. A strictly contemporary and OK read about the rich and powerful and their lack of true grounding in life! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Victoria Sarne | 1/6/2014

    " Enjoyable as a plane or beach read - not really a substantial novel - more a magazine piece. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Paula | 12/28/2013

    " vulgar language "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cathy | 12/9/2013

    " I just can't seem to get into any of Ms Grazer's books:( What do you like about that I'm missing? I saw that it's getting re-released as another title, Fairytale Ending later this year.... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lisa | 12/4/2013

    " This one sucked too. Hated everyone in it. Did not feel sorry at all for the heroine. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristina Hoerner | 11/26/2013

    " This wasn't bad for a chick lit book. It is by the author of "The Starter Wife." A wealthy couple of 25 years divorces because the husband is a pig and always will be and the wife lost who she used to be. Pretty standard stuff but a quick, easy read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Molly | 7/19/2013

    " Decent enough for a light book - but predictable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicole | 6/30/2013

    " A light summer read with some potentially good characters. But, it just wasn't that interesting of a story. I enjoyed Grazer's Maneater; this was not as good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theletter12 | 5/22/2013

    " This is going to be one of my new to watch authors. I thought this book was great - the give and the take - it was laugh out loud funny at times. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laureen Cutrona | 12/1/2012

    " I think this book could have done the job without the constant f-bombs. I'm no prude, but come on. These weren't socialites, they were truckers. Other than that, pretty predictable. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cheryl | 11/17/2012

    " The story wasn't bad, but the language was disgusting. Maybe it was the fact that this was on audio cassette, but I found the use of random vulgarity to be extremely unsettling - - - and i don't consider myself to be a prude either! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 11/14/2012

    " A smart, slick book about two high-powered New Yorkers divorcing after a marriage long gone sour. Very funny in parts, and the characters aren't always likable, but I could hardly put it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeannine | 9/18/2012

    " This book surprised the heck out of me. I figured it would be War of the Roses stuff. But if was funny, sad and just a good read. No great work of literature here. But it's certainly a great fun beach read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kimberly | 9/11/2012

    " this is same author that wrote "the starter wife" so thought it would be good~but it wasn't:( "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gloria Corder | 12/4/2011

    " Very likable characters despite their shortcomings. I really enjoyed this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 5/15/2011

    " It was entertaining but pretty stereotypical. Check out from the library. Not worth the purchase. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lizpeveto | 4/15/2011

    " New author read, typical rich mogul husband has affair, leaves wife, wife finds new life, happily ever after - yuk! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Slone | 12/31/2010

    " Predictable, except for the queen's twist at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 12/28/2010

    " Good , yet some of the writing seemed forced, or the characters seemed forced. Not sure if that is the correct explanation, but something was just not sitting well with me regarding the book .... Anyone else feel this way? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alicia | 10/20/2010

    " Entertaining read and great break from the murder mysteries. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cathy | 9/17/2010

    " I just can't seem to get into any of Ms Grazer's books:( What do you like about that I'm missing? I saw that it's getting re-released as another title, Fairytale Ending later this year.... "
