Welcome to another week of In My Mailbox! In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. Every week, we share the books we received for review, purchased, checked out at the library, etc. As always this week, I have library loot.
In the self-contained world of young Gilded Age Manhattan socialites, Elizabeth and Diana Holland reign supreme. Or so it seems. Scratch the surface, though, and you can detect festering jealousies that threaten to topple them. Elizabeth suffers a more literal fall when her carriage overturns and she is carried away by the swift East River current. That's only the beginning of the action and suspense in The Luxe, the launch volume in a teen series by Anna Godbersen.Rumors by Anna Godbersen
SUMMARY MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR THE LUXE
After bidding good-bye to New York's brightest star, Elizabeth Holland, rumors continue to fly about her untimely demise.That's all I received for books, but one of my closest friends sent me a late birthday present: a Barnes and Noble gift card! I can't wait to check out what they have in stock. I have some ideas of what I want, but I've been really indecisive lately about what books to buy with my gift cards (I still haven't spent the Amazon gift card my parents gave me for my birthday).
All eyes are on those closest to the dearly departed: her mischievous sister, Diana, now the family's only hope for redemption; New York's most notorious cad, Henry Schoonmaker, the flame Elizabeth never extinguished; the seductive Penelope Hayes, poised to claim all that her best friend left behind—including Henry; even Elizabeth's scheming former maid, Lina Broud, who discovers that while money matters and breeding counts, gossip is the new currency.
As old friends become rivals, Manhattan's most dazzling socialites find their futures threatened by whispers from the past. In this delicious sequel to The Luxe, nothing is more dangerous than a scandal...or more precious than a secret.
What did you get this week? Happy reading!
