From the bestselling author of 'The Devil Wears Prada' comes a no-holds barred expose of the world of the Manhattan super-rich and super-successful.
Bette is 27, smart, pretty, fun - and bored. When she splits up with her long-term boyfriend, she decides it's time for a change. A chance meeting propels her into a new role as a party planner. Running with the cool Manhattan pack, Bette can hardly believe her luck. Suddenly, the greatest city in the world is her own personal playground and boy, the toys are incredible!
But quicker than you can say Manola Blahnik, everything starts to fall apart. Bette finds herself the prey of a notorious playboy - and suddenly the lead item of the society gossip columns. Her new boss couldn't be more thrilled, but Bette's family and old friends are less so. The girl they know and love, with a penchant for dodgy romance novels, cheesy '80s music and junk food, is in danger of turning into just another Park Avenue princess.
As Bette struggles to keep both her old and new lives from imploding, she finds salvation in an unlikely form, But can she say goodbye to the glamour and the Gucci, the Prada and the parties, and step back into the real world - and into the arms of a genuine Prince Charming?
