Tells the story of a group of rich socialites who inhabit One Fifth Avenue, a very exclusive apartment building in New York. Covers the course of a year in the lives of all these neighbors who love and hate each other, through death and marriage, heartbreak and betrayal.

This is my first Bushnell book, so I’m still trying to figure out her writing style and on a scale how much I like her writing. I wanted to read Sex and the City first which would have set a better tone of what to expect, but I imagine this isn’t too far off. I tried to keep an open mind when reading.

Reader beware: explicit sexual content and description. If you’ve read your share of trashy romance novels this isn’t going to be much more than that.

  2. I really loved this book. I’ve never read sex and the city, but I really liked Four Blondes and Trading Up if you like her writing style.
