The Lovereading4Kids comment

Compulsive, tantalizing and utterly irresistible, this is a gorgeous, glamorous, must-have debut. Set in New York in 1899, it’s glittering with jewels, brimming with secrets and social intrigue, and loaded with plenty of eligible young men – and one gorgeous stable-boy. No teenager or older sister or adult will be able to resist. If you’ve never enjoyed historical fiction before then try this. It will not disappoint.

Synopsis

Luxe by Anna Godbersen

Reviews

“A big, sumptuous tale of catty girls and dark secrets and windswept romance unfurls in this readable novel of late 19th century New York City socialites… Readers with clamour for this sharp, smart drama of friends, lovers, lies, and betrayals.” Kirkus Reviews

'Bursting with glam parties, beautiful debutantes and a good dose of scandal.' Sugar

‘Mystery, romance, jealousy, betrayal, humour, and gorgeous, historically- accurate details. Edith Wharton, Jane Austen and Agatha Christie rolled into one… I couldn’t put The Luxe down!’ – Cecily Von Ziegesar, author of Gossip Girl.
