Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of Hope In a Jar, Secrets of a Shoe Addict, and Shoe Addicts Anonymous, comes a novel about old rivalries, deep secrets, and the three things all women wish they were.

Twenty years ago, when they were teenagers, Holly and Nicola were the outsiders at summer camp. Holly was the plump one, a dreamer who longed to be an artist. Nicola was the shy, plain one who wanted nothing more than to be beautiful. Their cabin nemesis was Lexi. Rich, spoiled, evil Lexi. One night, Holly and Nicola team up to pull one, daring act of vengeance. But they never dream that this one act will have repercussions that will reach into the future, even 20 years later. And they never realize the secret pain that Lexi holds very close, and how their need for revenge costs Lexi a great deal.

Today, Holly is a successful gallery owner, who has put her own artistic dreams on hold. She struggles with her weight and for approval from her constantly criticizing boyfriend. Nicola, is an almost-famous actress who believes that one little plastic surgery fix is just what she needs to put her over the edge into fame. And Lexi…Lexi is down on her luck and totally broke. Holly will do anything to be thin. Lexi will do anything to be rich. And Nicola will do anything to be pretty.

Thin, Rich, Pretty is the story of three women who believe that happiness is the next dress size down, the next dollar figure up, or the next appreciative glance from a stranger. But mostly it's the story of how three women save each other, and show each other the path to true contentment.

Told with Beth Harbison's knack for 30- and-40-something nostalgia, and heartwarming humor, Thin, Rich, Pretty will strike a chord with any woman who has ever got on the scale, looked in the mirror, or the bank, and said, “if only…”

    "Every woman can relate to this book"
    What did you love best about Thin, Rich, Pretty?

    This book spoke to me both from my childhood (camping) days and as an adult. I enjoyed getting to know these characters and seeing their development.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed seeing the characters develop over the years and learn to deal with their own issues-- this book is about embracing your true self.


    If you could rename Thin, Rich, Pretty, what would you call it?

    I think 'Thin, Rich, Pretty' is an appropriate title!


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book to any person looking for a fairly light read- Beth Harbison delivers each time.

    Story
    "Gets you from the get go!"

    Great little book. Interesting and the characters and story grab you right away. It was sad to finish it so fast. It seems short but everything is resolved. I would have liked to know more about all the characters. But there could be a second book! Recommended, nice, easy reading and the narrator is the best. She's my favorite.

    Story
    "great narration, story just OK."
    What did you love best about Thin, Rich, Pretty?

    I really enjoyed Shoe Addicts Anonymous and thought this would be a nice follow up. The story-line isn't nearly as good. Beth Harbison's books are very easy reading or, easy listening, if you will, It was cute enough- kept my attention during a long drive (but not detailed enough where you have to really listen, which I prefer while driving). I enjoy reading books with more substance, so it's not easy to find light books with good narration to listen to. All-in-all I would likely purchase again.


    Would you recommend Thin, Rich, Pretty to your friends? Why or why not?

    a few of my girlfriends, perhaps.

    Story
    "Enjoyable"

    This is a book about three women who knew one another when they were young. Each woman has an issue they are dealing with, and really have been their entire lives. The book switches between present day and the past which helps explain the reason for their issues. I enjoy Beth Harbison books and this book did not disappoint. This is another good example of the importance of friendship.
