    Janey Wilcox wants to be on top. Not since author Candace Bushnell created Carrie Bradshaw and Sex and the City has there been a heroine like Janey Wilcox. Janey is a beautiful yet struggling social climber determined to survive in New York City society. Listeners first met Janey in Bushnell's international best seller 4 Blondes. Now, everyone's favorite character is back, with a major modeling contract, a Porsche Boxster, and big plans.

    "A Fun Read!"
    Overall

    Alas, I will never be a Victoria's Secret model living in New York City! This novel takes its readers (listeners) to another life. After all, isn't that transportation one of the joys of fiction reading? I recommend this novel to anyone whose mind needs to escape from their own reality.

    By 2010, there will be more stepfamilies than birth families in Britain, a fact which only emphasises the importance of Joanna Trollope's intelligent scrutiny. Her novel concerns that expanding unit, the stepfamily, and explores the myths, the truths, and the difficulties of trying to deal simultaneously with present relationships, past relationships and, above all, with other people's children.

    Overall

    This book aptly presents a tangled web of step-families and related complications. Although step-families are, indeed, becoming more prevalent, I personally haven't run across many fiction books on the subject. Via the female characters' voices, the author vividly echoes thoughts and feelings I've experienced in my 4 years as a step-mother. I find it cathartic to know I'm not alone in my experiences, even if my allies are fictional characters from another part of the world! I recommend this novel specifically to women who have struggled with step-motherhood, one of the most difficult roles to play.
