From the New York Times best-selling 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.

First Emily Giffin. Light and fun as expected. Surprisingly moving at the end. Overall enjoyed this book.
I have to say I have read, listened to and enjoyed most if not all of Emily Giffin's books. However, I found it difficult to listen to the whiny voice of Christine Marshall. It was annoying to say the least and extremely irritating to put it exactly how I felt listening to her read the book.
So I would try another book from the author only if she did not use Christine Marshall to narrate.
I'm going by memory since I still haven't finished listening to the book as it is narrated by Christine Marshall.
But if memory serves correct my favorite character in the book was Ethan.
I know Darcy had a very high opinion of herself and I know she could seem like a brat but in other narrations of the book I empathized with Darcy and in this one I felt nothing .
Not this one, the first one yes with a different narrator.
Waste of money.
I am a busy sports mom listening to romance only. If the narrator is good and it has a decent plot, I will find it enjoyable.
Yes, especially if they read the first book.
Only the first book. This was recommended to me by a friend and I enjoyed it.
I enjoyed her performance of all of the characters. She did a good job.
That Darcy and Ethan ended up together. I think he was the best person for her and could handle the spoiled brat. I didn't see that actually coming until the middle of the book.
Yes, I loved Something Borrowed
Yes, because I went to see Something Borrowed and I always check out the sequel.
I normally like series of books but was hesitant to listen to this one as the person I thought was the main character in the first book was not the main character in this book.
I was pleasantly surprised with the book even though you knew the ending almost right from the start.
Wouldn't be a book to read again but it was a nice listen.
I wouldn't make this a film.
For light and fun listening, good audiobook.
If you liked Something Borrowed, you'll enjoy the continuing drama of Darcy. But the narrator's voice is really irritating because its so whiney.
The end (don't want to spoil the ending).
The Drama Queen goes on. . .
The reader uses a sing-song voice for the chacter Darcy. I get that she is supposed to be spoiled, etc. but the way it is read is very distracting from the story.
I like Emily Giffin as an author, and the follow-up to Something Borrowed was something I looked forward to. I won't listen to it again, I'll just buy the book and read it!
Get someone else to read it!
This is one of my favorite books. It was great. I was not so sure about it in the beginning, but it only got better as it went along. There is a point in the book when you just fall in love with the characters and the story.
Although a bit predictable, this sequel to Something Borrowed is a fun read. You don't have to read the first book to understand the back story because the author does a good job of reviewing the past events. Typical chic lit, but it is nice to see the main character change and evolve into a decent person by the end of the story. Of course, the character is so vile in the beginning, she has no place to go but up! It won't raise your I.Q., but it is a great beach book.
I own a small shop selling custom/costume Jewelry. I love to listen to audio books while I create jewelry. I love all animals and get very upset when they aren't treated well, even in fiction.
My absolute favorite! It is wonderful dark comedy, almost gallows humor.
Darcy at the beginning--- don't we all know a Darcy? Her sense of entitlement, and delusions of grandeur are hysterical!
Yes, and I love her narration skills. This is the best one I've heard!
To laughter, when she is giving Markus a hard time on her birthday...
I have probably listened to this book a dozen times since I bought it.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
