The book follows the ups and downs in the life of Ivy Ames following her sacking from her high-flying New York job and the discovery of her husband's unfaithfulness. Ames sets up a consultancy helping Manhattan's rich and powerful get their beloved children into one of the top private kindergarten schools while juggling the lives and needs of her own 2 children, recently out of private school themselves, and a downsizing move to a less salubrious area of town.

This book is in the chick lit vein and certainly won't win any literature prizes. However it is an entertaining read, with enough romance, skull-duggery and interesting characters to keep the pages turning.

A RABCK from the lovely GlasgowGal - thank you! I will read and then release at the Zurich OBCZ so that the Ivy Chronicles can find more readers :-)

Ah, what can I say? I tried to resist, really I did, but I started reading this last night and it was just the reading matter I needed. Fun, without being too challenging! Plus, it had a good evening and whilst the heroine annoyed me at the start, she certainly grew on me :-) Thanks Glasgowgal!

An entertaining read, even if I didn't like the main character all that much. Nobody needs to be that superficial ;-)

Hmmm... at some times, I wanted to throw the book into a far corner. It was just so superficial and stupid at times. But then, I liked the turns in the story. And the book was an easy read, what was/is the right thing to read at the moment. But still... it could have been much better.

I took it home from the meeting in Cafe Gloria. I see it has gone around a lot in Zurich already! I think I'll release it in France somewhere at Christmas so it can travel a bit further.
I read it in two days, my two kids are sick and we didn't go outside at all. Thank god for TV!! ;) Just what I needed for those long days, an easy to read, quite funny at times, superficial book. Thanks!

This book was funny and light to read, however quite frustrating and shallow at times. If this is the high life, i am so glad we dotn fly so high. But I did enjoy the book a bit. Just completd it today.

This book arrived in the post today along with a gardening angel (what a cool idea!) Also included in this generous package was a gorgeous bookmark. Many thanks Potat1556 for this RABCK!
