Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Love the Book but was disappointed by the narrator"
    Would you try another book from Emily Giffin and/or Christine Marshall?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    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 .


    Was Something Blue worth the listening time?

    Not this one, the first one yes with a different narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    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.

    I love reading but don't have time. The audiobooks allow me to hear the books I want to read. I love audible!

    "Okay story!"
    What did you like best about Something Blue? What did you like least?

    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.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Emily Giffin again?

    Yes, I loved Something Borrowed


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, because I went to see Something Borrowed and I always check out the sequel.

    Story
    "Better Than Expected"
    If you could sum up Something Blue in three words, what would they be?

    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.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I wouldn't make this a film.

    Where does Something Blue rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    For light and fun listening, good audiobook.


    Would you recommend Something Blue to your friends? Why or why not?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The end (don't want to spoil the ending).


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The Drama Queen goes on. . .

    "Good Story, but the reader is terrible!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    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.


    What did you like best about this 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!


    How could the performance have been better?

    Get someone else to read it!

    "Great Book"

    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.

    Love a good story and will read just about anything except Sci-Fi, Supernatural/Zombie/Vampire novels. Not snobby--don't enjoy them.

    Story
    "A Sequel That Stands on It's Own."

    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.

    "If you liked the Heartbreak Kid..."
    Where does Something Blue rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    My absolute favorite! It is wonderful dark comedy, almost gallows humor.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Darcy at the beginning--- don't we all know a Darcy? Her sense of entitlement, and delusions of grandeur are hysterical!


    Have you listened to any of Christine Marshall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, and I love her narration skills. This is the best one I've heard!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    To laughter, when she is giving Markus a hard time on her birthday...


    Any additional comments?

    I have probably listened to this book a dozen times since I bought it.

    "A good sequel, but Something Borrowed was better"
    Where does Something Blue rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Somewhere in the middle. It wasn't the worst thing, but there were parts that were dull or annoying.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It was good. A nice ending to the plot line.


    What about Christine Marshall’s performance did you like?

    She didn't try too hard, it was a nice balance for each of the characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No - it was your standard chick-flick.
