Summary:

From the New York Times bestselling author of Something Borrowed comes a novel that shows how someone with a 'perfect life' can lose it all-and then find everything. Darcy Rhone thought she had it all figured out: the more beautiful the girl, the more charmed her life. Never mind substance. Never mind playing by the rules. Never mind karma. But Darcy's neat, perfect world turns upside down when her best friend, Rachel, the plain-Jane "good girl," steals her fiancé, while Darcy finds herself completely alone for the first time in her life…with a baby on the way. Darcy tries to recover, fleeing to her childhood friend living in London and resorting to her tried-and-true methods for getting what she wants. But as she attempts to recreate her glamorous life on a new continent, Darcy finds that her rules no longer apply. It is only then that Darcy can begin her journey toward self-awareness, forgiveness, and motherhood. Something Blue is a novel about one woman's surprising discoveries about the true meaning of friendship, love, and happily-ever-after. It's a novel for anyone who has ever, even secretly, wondered if the last thing you want is really the one thing you need.

    This is a very lightweight story anyway, and so really would have benefited from a narrator who added SOME depth to the character with their approach. Sorry but I found the narration annoying and difficult to listen to.

    Great book, Darcy really changed, which was a good thing, I just wish it was longer than 4 cd's.

    I liked two of her other books, but this one drove me crazy, so I gave up. Too whiny - both the reader and the main character.

    I usually like chick lits, but this one was just okay. Darcy was so shallow the first half of the book that I could barely keep listening and then at the end, she'd done such a 180 that she was overly apologetic about going into labor. I mean, who would apologize for such a thing? Especially Darcy, regardless of how much she'd changed. That part of the transformation seemed a bit overboard.

    I really enjoyed this book, even more so than Something Borrowed. I agree that is starts off shallow, but that is part of the charm of the book...that people can change!

    A pleasant read. A nice fantasy. The character is interesting but the story is hard to believe. It is an entertaining light read.

    I almost stopped listening after the first CD......it was so shallow! but it became very enjoyable the rest of the way.

    Somewhat predictable but also entertaining. It's a good one for the commute.
