Review: The Luxe

The Luxe (Luxe, #1)The Luxe by Anna Godbersen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was orginally hesitant to pick up this book given it's hype, but was drawn in from the moment I read the Prologue clipping and the funeral setting of one of the leading characters. I was hooked.

You meet a group of socialites at the turn of the century in New York, behaving more like the New York setting of Sex In The City without the grphics but all the drama involved of high society who is sleeping with who who wants what and who will get what they want. You meet what is the "main" focus of the book Elizabeth Holland and her sister Diana, the supporting characters seemed somewhat richer quality and so did that of Diana Holland, than that of Elizabeth - which that book was about. I know that their were characters introduced simply for no reason other than to use in another book later... but I am looking forward to it - a cliffhanger was left for me to want to sink my teeth into.
