About this item
In her previous book, SOMETHING BORROWED, Emily Giffin told the story of Rachel, a "Plain Jane" who somehow stole the fiancé of her gorgeous best friend, Darcy. In this semi-sequel, Giffin resumes the story from Darcy's point of view, to see how she deals with trying to have a baby without the support of her former best friend and her almost-husband. Darcy heads to London, where another friend offers shelter and support, but her earnest attempts to resume her former glamorous lifestyle inevitably fall flat. Eventually, Darcy realizes that she has to surrender some of her illusions if she ever hopes to nurture a child through the trials of life. Giffin shows off her sharp wit and her ability for startling insight by taking the least sympathetic character from her previous book and making readers root for her to get back on track. SOMETHING BLUE is the cream of the chick-lit crop.
Darcy Rhone has always been able to rely on a few things: her beauty and charm. Her fiancé Dex. Her lifelong best friend Rachel. She never needed anything else. Or so she thinks until Dex calls of their dream wedding and she uncovers the ultimate betrayal. Blaming everyone but herself, Darcy flees to London and attempts to recreate her glamorous life on a new continent. But to her dismay, she discovers that her tried-and-true tricks no longer apply—and that her luck has finally expired. It is only then that she can begin her journey toward redemption, forgiveness, and true love.
