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.

“Giffin's writing is warm and engaging; readers will find themselves cheering for Darcy as she proves people can change in this captivating tale. ” (Booklist, starred review)
“Giffin’s plotting and prose are so engaging that she quickly becomes a fun, friendly presence in your reading life.” (Chicago Sun-Times)
"Sex and the City fans will love this sassy debut novel about two best friends whose rather unlikely lifelong friendship is about to be sorely tested" (Woman's Own)
A better narration could have made this easier to listen to, and a more productive story line.
The first 5 chapters were practically the same information as the last book. Super annoying and super repetitive.
It's almost like the narrator doesn't even like Darcy (the main character) as she makes her as whiney as possible. Her inflections could be better for the other characters also.
Boredom and frustration.
Do not buy this book if you are interested in listening to anything more than incessant superficial complaining.
"I love it."
I loved how it rounded everything off with a happy ending.
Great easy read/listening.
Can't wait to read/listen to more from Emily Giffin.
