The Luxe by Anna Godbersen 5*****

It was the old New York way...
the way of people who dreaded scandle more than disease,
who placed decency above courage,
and who considered that nothing was more ill-bred than 'scenes',
except the behaviour of those who give rise to them...
- Edith Wharton, The Age of Innocence.

Oh the cover of this book just said buy please.... so I did!

Wow... I just could not put it down. For a first time novel it was fantasic.

It has all the glitz of the O.C but with bigger frocks and more dashing boys and it's set in 1899.

There is gossip, intrigue, deceit, romance, jealousy, humour and betrayal
just to name a few things.

The author transports you into a world you can only imagine exists,
a world where your best friend isn't who you think she is and will
stab you in the back whens it's turned.

Love it, love it, loved it,
and I'm looking forward to reading the next in the series.

Highly recommend it. I rate this 5*****
