Following the smash-hit Something Borrowed comes story of betrayal, redemption, and forgiveness

Darcy Rhone has always been able to rely on a few things: Her beauty and charm. Her fiance, Dex. Her lifelong best friend, Rachel. She never needed anything else. Or so she thinks until Dex calls off their dream wedding and she uncovers the ultimate betrayal. Blaming everyone but herself, Darcy flees to London and attempts to re-create 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.

This book was light, but I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as I recall enjoying Something Borrowed. Maybe it's a matter of reading the right book at the right moment. But this one fell flat for me. The transformation here was too fast, too painless, too stark. There was no emotional connection to this character. Everything was too neat and tidy. Perhaps I just have a much easier time identifying with the Rachel character and thus was able to read that as light fantasy. In any event, this book has been sitting on my shelf for so long, I'll be glad to be able to move it along.

I ended up listening to this as an audiobook rather than reading the hard copy. The narrator was adequate, but not especially compelling. Her effort to give different characters different voices was rarely seamless and often overacted and clunky. Still, the story is light enough that it didn't distract all that much. There aren't very many characters to keep track of anyway.
