Pandy "J" Wallis is a renowned writer whose novels about a young woman making her way in Manhattan have spawned a series of blockbuster films. After the success of the Monica books and movies, Pandy wants to attempt something different: a historical novel based on her ancestor Lady Wallis. But Pandy's publishers and audience only want her to keep cranking out more Monica-as does her greedy husband, Jonny, who's gone deeply in debt to finance his new restaurant in Las Vegas. When her marriage crumbles and the boathouse of her family home in Connecticut goes up in flames, Pandy suddenly realizes she has an opportunity to reinvent herself. But to do so, she will have to reconcile with her ex-best friend and former partner in crime, SondraBeth Schnowzer, who plays Monica on the big screen--and who may have her own reasons to derail Pandy's startling change of plan.

I could hardly finish this one. Silly, and not in a good way. If you're reading this because you miss Sex and the City, skip it.

Started out great and very interesting plot development. I appreciate what she was trying to do with the ending but it just didn't work for me at all. I did see the big plot twist on the last page couple of pages coming...I found it quite obvious.

I've liked all her previous books but this one is not her best. Ending is downright ludicrous. Appreciate what she was trying to do for the ladies with this feminism-tinged book, but it could have been better.

I so wanted to like this book -- and indeed I loved the first two hundred pages in which Candace Bushnell captures the excitement and adrenaline of the high life in the Big Apple. Then, sadly, the plot veers off in a direction that is so ridiculous that it is insulting to the reader. Bushnell's feminist message, while worthwhile, is delivered in the clunkiest most credibility-stretching manner. However, by hanging in and trudging through to the end, I was rewarded with a surprise twist ending that I did not see coming. It wasn't enough to redeem the nonsense of the last third of the novel, but did somewhat take the sharp edge off my overall disappointment with this book.
