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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Entertaining sequel"

    Not the great American classic novel but an entertaining sequel nonetheless
    I did enjoy that the author switched points of view in this novel and did a good job doing so.

    "Protagonist made even more annoying by narrator"

    Book Review: Incredibly whiny in the first half of the book, the protagonist, Darcy, does go through a metamorphosis halfway through, making the listen bearable. If I hadn't read reviews stating this, I don't think I could have finished it. If Emily Giffin only made the first half of the book more like the first 20% of the book, I would have enjoyed this much more.

    Narrator Review: The narrator reminded me of a character from Mad Men - overly affected voice used by film actresses of that era. Somehow, she made the whiny Darcy even whinier. It took awhile for me to get used to her voice and I would have preferred someone who spoke more naturally.

    "Not as good as Something Borrowed"

    I loved Something Borrowed and was so excited to "read" the follow up. I was disappointed in the narrator and the book started out very whiny and I found myself annoyed with Darcy's character. However, in the end I enjoyed it and thought the author tied up all the loose ends in the end.
