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 fairytale that will leave fans stamping their Manolo Blahniks for more.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Spazfungus | 2/9/2014

    " Upper class NY,NY chick-gossip lit. Characters are too vapid and plot is too predictable to be enjoyable "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lyz | 1/30/2014

    " 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. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Summer | 1/25/2014

    " 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 Ana | 1/21/2014

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

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mikala Hill | 1/21/2014

    " 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 Faye | 1/19/2014

    " If you liked Devil Wears Prada, you'll love this. It's a good bath tub, beach, rainy day read & the best of Jill Kargman's books!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Betsy | 1/17/2014

    " I absolutely LOVED this book! I found myself involved with the characters, so much so that I wished they were real people so I could either a.) give them a big hug (Hope, Oscar, Charlie) or b.) give them a big punch in the face (Lel, Polly, Henny, Will)! The best part of the book for me, though, was the way everything wrapped up to my satisfaction -- totally! The good guys and the bad guys got what they deserved, and some of the 'bad' guys didn't turn out to be so bad after all, once they had their 'Aha!' moments and decided to change their ways. I highly highly highly recommend this book. I haven't enjoyed a book so much in a long time! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karma | 1/17/2014

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anita Smith | 1/14/2014

    " If this book was meant to be a spoof on NYC chick lit, it was awesome. If not, it was bad. And it took two people to write this???? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barbara Caulfield | 12/29/2013

    " Total chic lit - rich girls in Manhattan and an outsider who tries to make it in - entertaining in a sort of "thank god I don't live there" kind of way "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cyndi | 12/27/2013

    " a good beach read...reminded me of the movie "Mean Girls" but the women were older! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laurie | 12/12/2013

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 12/10/2013

    " It was alright - the authors changed perspective without any warning from one paragraph to the next which was interesting. But it was normal, predictable chick-lit. Some of the characters you hated, as you were supposed to, and there were also some redeeming characters, but like I said, predictable. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alissa Wilkinson | 12/4/2013

    " Flat characters, unappealing plot. Skip it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna Cait | 11/25/2013

    " Really great. just comes to show good things happen for good people. would make a great movie! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Adele Goetz | 8/29/2013

    " Funny in parts, but pretty dumb. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deena | 7/27/2013

    " Kind of a hoaky book, but good for a quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Evelyn | 3/8/2013

    " A good fluff summer read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stinkydiver | 12/22/2012

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cherylck | 11/7/2012

    " Quick guilty pleasure read without substance. Good for the beach, or a plane ride. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marisa | 10/25/2012

    " Good "chic lit" about NYC. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patrice | 9/4/2012

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eden | 4/8/2012

    " Quick read - fun and a bit too predictable. For better takes on chick-lit, try Jane Green and Sophie Kinsella. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacey | 8/7/2011

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beth | 10/30/2010

    " Bad chick lit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 9/25/2010

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

  • 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jillian | 4/5/2010

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

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Corinne | 2/9/2010

    " 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

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

    " 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! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cmls-girl | 1/2/2009

    " Cute read and fast too. It's not earth shattering in any way, but I enjoyed it and had a few giggles. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eden | 11/29/2008

    " Quick read - fun and a bit too predictable. For better takes on chick-lit, try Jane Green and Sophie Kinsella. "
