""Married girls in New York these days put almost as much effort into losing husbands as they once did into finding them." In 2004, Plum Sykes jet-setted to bestsellerdom with Bergdorf Blondes, a playful debut novel that introduced readers to the glamorous world of PAPs (Park Avenue Princesses). Now the fabulous girls from the world of Bergdorf Blondes are back. Lauren Blount’s life is beautifully arranged: she’s very rich, very young, very thin, very pretty -- and very, very divorced. She is the most reckless and glamorous of Manhattan’s Debutante Divorcée set. Lauren captivates Sylvia Mortimer, the group’s token newlywed. But while Lauren sets out on a morality-lite, orgasm-heavy "Make Out Challenge," Sylvia discovers her marriage isn’t exactly an Eternity ad -- especially when the city’s most notorious Husband Huntress zeros in on her spouse. Navigating a world of Divorce Showers and Power Christenings, Socialite Babies, Professional Friends, Gorgeous West Village Wives, and Un-Googleable Men, Sylvia fears her husband is straying and starts asking, as Lauren says, "Who needs a husband anyway?" With her delightful mix of charm, cheek, and satire, Sykes has written a second novel that promises to be every bit as beloved as her smash debut."--Inside jacket.

Fantastically frivolous and impressively tongue-in-cheek. Sykes manages to make these spoiled, flaky women two-dimensional (better than one, right?) and nearly sympathetic...without suggesting that their behavior be emulated. A great read to kick off the summer.
