The Debutante Divorcee by Plum Sykes

The Debutante Divorcee
Goodreads Summary: A major national media event when published in hardcover, this delicious follow-up to Bergdorf Blondes was an immediate New York Timesbestseller and confirmed Plum Sykes status as a literary superstar.

Sylvie Mortimer has just married and is blissfully happy with The Divine New Husband, Hunter. Sylvie s new friend, Lauren Blount, is very rich, very young, very thin, very pretty -- and very, very divorced. The most reckless and glamorous of Manhattan s Debutante Divorcee set, Lauren captivates Sylvie, the group s token newlywed. But while Lauren sets out on a morality-lite, orgasm-heavy Make Out Challenge, Sylvie discovers her marriage isn t exactly an Eternity ad -- especially when the city s most notorious Husband Huntress zeros in on her spouse.
The Debutante Divorcee delivers all the wit and charm that madeBergdorf Blondes a smash hit. This juicy new tale delighted Sykes many fans in hardcover and will continue to earn her new ones in this dazzling, chic paperback edition.
Plum Sykes was born in London and educated at Oxford. She is a contributing editor for American Vogue, where she writes on fashion, society, and Hollywood. She has also written for Vanity Fair. Her first book, Bergdorf Blondes, was a New York Times bestseller in hardcover and paperback.

Why I Read This Book: I picked this book up from Amazon when it was on sale because I had read, and liked, Bergdorf Blondes.

Review: This book wasn't great compared to Bergdorf Blondes. I remember BB's being a lot funnier, and this book just seemed like one massive name drop for designer wear and NYC hot spots. It got a little annoying. Overall, it was still a good story, I liked the main character, as she represented someone a little more down to earth in a society full of ridiculousness. It was Bushnell esque chick lit, and if you take it for what it is, it's a decent book.
