The Luxe: Envy by Anna Godbersen (coming January 2009)
Jealous whispers. Old rivalries. New betrayals. Two months after Elizabeth Holland's dramatic homecoming, Manhattan eagerly awaits her return to the pinnacle of society. When Elizabeth refuses to join her sister Diana's side, however, those watching New York's favorite family begin to suspect that all is not as it seems behind the stately doors of No. 17 Gramercy Park South.
Farther uptown, Henry and Penelope Schoonmaker are the city's most celebrated couple. But despite the glittering diamond ring on Penelope's finger, the newlyweds share little more than scorn for each other. And while the newspapers call Penelope's social-climbing best friend, Caroline Broad, an heiress, her fortune-and her fame-are anything but secure, especially now that one of the society's darlings is slipping tales to the eager press.
Wow. I'm a huge fan of The Luxe, and can't wait for Envy! Plus: the cover was just released. Doesn't it look amazing?
