A Luxe NovelBook - 2008
After the death of Elizabeth Holland, the eyes of 1899 Manhattan society turn to those who were close to her--her sister, Diana; her fiancâe, Henry Schoonmaker; her friend, Penelope; and her maid, Lina--as they react to her loss.
After bidding good-bye to New York's brightest star, Elizabeth Holland, rumors continue to fly about her untimely demise.
All eyes are on those closest to the dearly departed: her mischievous sister, Diana, now the family's only hope for redemption; New York's most notorious cad, Henry Schoon-maker, the flame Elizabeth never extinguished; the seductive Penelope Hayes, poised to claim all that her best friend left behind—including Henry; even Elizabeth's scheming former maid, Lina Broud, who discovers that while money matters and breeding counts, gossip is the new currency.
As old friends become rivals, Manhattan's most dazzling socialites find their futures threatened by whispers from the past. In this delicious sequel to The Luxe, nothing is more dangerous than a scandal . . . or more precious than a secret.
Backstabbing best friends, family secrets, and strict social rules encircle Penelope and Lina in the dramatic sequel to The Luxe set in Manhattan in 1899. 150,000 first printing.
