In The Right Address, Carrie Karasyov and Jill Kargman seared through the upper crust of New York’s glitterati with wicked glee. In their delicious new novel, Wolves in Chic Clothing, they train their merciless spotlight on the young princes and princesses poised to inherit Park Avenue. 

Julia, a hip, downtown salesgirl at Pelham’s jewelry store, finds her social life turned on its head when she is asked to deliver a necklace to the store’s young heiress, Lell Pelham, on Lell’s wedding day. Beguiled by Julia’s earnest cluelessness and her vintage-chic vibe, Lell and her gang adopt Julia, and “Eliza Doolittle” her into passing as the heiress to a family fortune, just for a laugh.

Dazed by the whirlwind of trust funds, pedigrees, Cosmopolitans, and penthouses in her new world, Julia is unprepared for the ardent advances of Lell’s husband—or the vicious claws her new “friends” develop when they decide Julia is an ingrate, and demote her from society goddess to penniless cling-on with one well-timed editorial. Suddenly, she must return the borrowed couture clothes and try to remember who she was before the body snatching took place. 

Hilarious and completely addictive, Wolves in Chic Clothing is a modern-day rags-to-riches-and-back-again fairy tale that will leave fans stamping their Manolo Blahniks for more.

    " This book was very poorly written. The beginning of it was so unrealistic that I nearly stopped. Even for "chick lit," it wasn't good! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 christina | 2/11/2014

    " This isn't going to set the world on fire as a literary masterpiece- but it's a fun easy read. "

    " Fun book. I loved how the book went back and forth between perspectives. Although it is a little predictable, I still enjoyed it and couldn't put it down! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laurie | 1/3/2014

    " What I would describe as fairly typical chic lit - light and easy. Peaks into the upper crust of the New York social scene. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patrice | 12/22/2013

    " Another just to pass the time book someone suggested. It was OK, not great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marisa | 12/16/2013

    " Good "chic lit" about NYC. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ana | 12/6/2013

    " Total escapist "reading". A light story read by a good reader. A rags-to-riches-to-rags-to-riches tale. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter | 11/30/2013

    " couldn't put it down quite entertaining as an inbetween read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacey | 11/23/2013

    " Chick lit wins me over again. Although not incredibly good chick lit. It was well-written in that I hated who I was supposed to hate and liked who I was supposed to like. I don't remember why I rented this, but thankfully, it was short, and not a chunk of my life I'll never get back. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 11/21/2013

    " A little too superficial even for my chic-lit tolerance level - sort of low rent Devil Wears Prada "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jillian | 11/16/2013

    " It was a nice quick read... A little predictable, but i still enjoyed it. "

    " Ridiculously stupid. Main Character had no personality. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lyz | 9/20/2013

    " If you read the summary on the back cover, you've read the whole book. Small town girl makes good, loses it all, and makes good again. It's a quick read and not a bad way to spend your time while in a doctor's waiting room, but it's not a book that you can't wait to pick up again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stinkydiver | 10/17/2012

    " Probably some of the best chic-lit I have read. Though I don't know if that is saying much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 1/18/2012

    " Drama, drama , drama and a New York City socialite setting. "

    " 2.5 stars. I normally love chic lit. And this one had some good, funny parts. But overall, it was too disconnected. Not my favorite. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Maggie | 5/7/2011

    " One of the worst books ever written. It was sloppy. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Summer | 12/16/2010

    " I didn't finish this book, so my rating is skewed. This book was pretty shallow for me, even for a girl who likes shallow once in awhile. It wasn't worth my time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chelle | 9/12/2010

    " This was mildly entertaining—a once-a-year indulgence into chic lit—a gap-fill between more thought-provocing literature. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ana | 5/3/2010

    " Total escapist "reading". A light story read by a good reader. A rags-to-riches-to-rags-to-riches tale. "

    " This book was mediocre and shallow. Unless you?re really interested in the New York A list, you probably won?t get a ton out of this read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cheryl | 7/29/2009

    " This book tried way too hard to be cute/funny/hip. I almost gave it a rating of three because I didn't expect much out of it from the beginning but the authors misused the word "literally" way too frequently. Come on, you're writers! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patrice | 2/26/2009
