Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Escape into the glamorous lives of three gold diggers--Paulette, Gillian, and Reese--and their to-the-manor-born friend Lauren, as they navigate their way into the inner circle of Hollywood and the NBA. Along the way at least one is forced to realize that all that glitters isn't gold.

Review:

"In Howard's ineptly executed latest (after Never Kiss and Tell), wealthy housewife Lauren, her scheming publicist cousin Paulette, disgruntled NBA wife Reese and aspiring actress Gillian are more or less friends. But greed and marital infidelity cause problems big and small, ensuring punishment for the plotters and happiness for the victims. Unfortunately, Howard's L.A. is hackneyed and her New York is 20 years out of date (Williamsburg, Brooklyn, for instance, is portrayed as a scary industrial wasteland), and though her fashion name-dropping is lackluster (expect the expected: Prada, Gucci, more Prada), she's markedly bling-conversant, especially when talking about her own jewelry line (items from which are described as 'stunning,' 'exquisite' and 'one of a kind'). The characters may be swathed in decadence, but the novel is lacking." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
