After years of searching for and finally landing that one perfect man, four Manhattan friends find themselves simultaneously questioning their romantic choices. Smart, strong, but jaded divorce lawyer India Chumley leads this pack of feisty thirty-somethings, all friends since grade school at the Sibley School, an Upper East Side institution for sophisticated ladies-in-training. There's Abby Rosenfeld Adams, a Jewish gallery owner married to her WASP college sweetheart; Monique Dawkins-Dubois, gynecologist and card-carrying member of Harlem's thriving Buppie-ocracy; and Esme Sarmiento Talbot, a Colombian heiress married to the All-American boy next door. When India, the most straightlaced of them all, learns that her friends are considering straying from their partners, she is dismayed. That is, until India's ex-fiance - the love of her life, the destroyer of her heart, and the best sex ever - comes back into the picture, and she finds herself caught between the dependable man she thought was her future and the man she never quite let go of.
Against the backdrop of New York at its most glamorous, One Flight Up is a delicious debut from a talented new writer.

"I had a ball reading One Flight Up. I wish the characters were real so we might have lunch!... A fun, fabulous, New York story that you won't be able to put down!" (Adriana Trigiani, New York Times bestselling author)
The storying line was supposed to be my favorite but this author missed the mark. Sorry, can't recommend this one. The narrator sometimes forgot who she was speaking for and the writer filled the book with nothing more than upscale descriptions which didnt move the story along, just filled pages. (or cds)
It seems like a bunch of stuff going on...just stuff going on, with nothing spectacular AT ALL.There is no direction and no point to what's going on. The book has been broken into 2 parts for quicker downloading. I can usually go through an audiobook in 2 days. I have had this for almost a MONTH and I just finished PART ONE yesterday. I would not recommend this book or waste the time on it- unless your forgot to load your other audiobooks to your listening device and this is the ONLY thing you have for a lo-o-ong driving trip.
