Although Elizabeth Holland is supposedly dead rumors continue to circle New York’s elite about her untimely demise. All eyes are on the friends and family: Elizabeth’s younger sister Diana who is now the family’s only hope to keep them among the elite. Elizabeth’s fiance Henry Schoonmaker, a man who seems to be broken by Elizabeth’s death. The beautiful Penelope Hayes, Elizabeth’s best friend who is ready to claim everything that Elizabeth left behind. Even Elizabeth’s scheming maid, Lina Broud, who discovers that money doesn’t make the woman. As the rumors continue to circle their lives move on with even more gossip, lies and betrayal.
After I finished the first book in this series I could not wait to get my hands on the second one. It’s seriously like hearing the best gossip ever and it’s so fun to imagine the gorgeous dresses and the scandalous New York society. Like I said in my previous review, this book is like Gossip Girl only set in 1899. The only downside is that I finally got I Am Number Four from the library so I have to read that before the next installation of this series. It’s driving me nuts because I so badly want to know what happens next! If that isn’t the sign of a good book I don’t know what is!
