Gilding Lily

Gilding Lily --Lily is on top of the world. Just a few short years ago she was a pretty, but relatively unknown, girl from Nashville. Now she is married to "the" Robert Bartholomew, is a Vogue "Girl of the Moment," a reigning member of New York's social scene...and she's slowly falling apart....along with is her marriage. With a post–pregnancy body (not a size two anymore!) and a mother in law from hell, Lily must navigate through waters that are infested with sharks––human sharks! And once she begins to write about her experiences, Lily starts to see who her friends and enemies are.

I was chosen to receive an advance copy of this book and review it for the publishers website. I will also post my review here as well sometime next week. Just finished it yesterday!

That's so exciting that you were chosen to review the book! I can't wait to hear your review.

Have you ever read any books by Madeleine Wickham? I've read all the Sophie Kinsella books, but none of her other books. Just wondering if they are any good?!

Monogram Momma sent me one of the Madeline Wickham books last summer called "Cocktails for Three" which was pretty good but that's the only one I've read.
