Summary:

In The Right Address, Carrie Karasyov and Jill Kargman seared through the upper crust of New Yorks glitterati with wicked glee. In their delicious new novel, Wolves in Chic Clothing, they train their merciless spotlight on the young princes and princesses poised to inherit Park Avenue.

Julia, a hip, downtown salesgirl at Pelhams jewelry store, finds her social life turned on its head when she is asked to deliver a necklace to the stores young heiress, Lell Pelham, on Lells wedding day. Beguiled by Julias earnest cluelessness and her vintage-chic vibe, Lell and her gang adopt Julia, and Eliza Doolittle her into passing as the heiress to a family fortune, just for a laugh.

Dazed by the whirlwind of trust funds, pedigrees, Cosmopolitans, and penthouses in her new world, Julia is unprepared for the ardent advances of Lells husband, or the vicious claws her new friends develop when they decide Julia is an ingrate, and demote her from society goddess to penniless cling-on with one well-timed editorial. Suddenly, she must return the borrowed couture clothes and try to remember who she was before the body snatching took place.

Hilarious and completely addictive, Wolves in Chic Clothing is a modern-day rags-to-riches-and-back-again fairy tale that will leave fans stamping their Manolo Blahniks for more.

    Based on the comments, I assume I'm the only male to try listening to this book. Which was an awful mistake. This is a compendium of the reasons men used to enlist in the French Foreign Legion. The women in this book are living nightmares -- they embody High Maintenance. I was so shaken by just one disc, I had to watch WWE for a couple of days, just to get my testosterone level back. Truly -- this is chewing gum for the mind.

    Good Book. I was very interested and very pleased.

    A terrific commuter book. Light fluffy characters, a perfectly ridiculous story and just the right amount of friendship and romance thrown in for good measure. Well worth the listen.

    I liked this book, it was entertaining and fun to listen to. It did a good job of describing the lives of the women and also wrapping up the end of the story. It was predictable but exactly what I wanted, a story where everyone got what they deserved in the end.

    This was a very entertaining, light listen - good for the daily commute. I was a little disappointed that the author did not describe the characters more throughly. The story was only "what happened" and never let you delve deeply enough into the characters' heads to find out WHY they acted the way they did. But, all in all, I really enjoyed this peek into the lives of the Park Avenue princesses.
