Twin sisters London and Madrid La Mira are socialites who are famous simply for being wealthy, young, and beautiful. London parties in San Francisco at her club; she leaves all the work to her manager, Lucinda, while she beds the pretty women who frequent the club. In New York, Madrid goes through men as fast as her sister goes through women, and her life is equally empty. But when the girls' wealthy grandmother tells them that they won't be getting their annual $850,000 checks until they make something of their lives, London and Madrid are faced with the prospect of gainful employment. Hoping to impress their grandmother, they try charitable work and fail miserably. But when Madrid tries her hand at matchmaking and London explores cooking, the sisters find something they'd been missing: fulfillment.
I really liked this book even more then I thought I would. Fun, light reading.
This book could have been so much better. Interesting premise, but the main characters turnaround seemed unrealistic, and I never really cared about them.
However, the thing that bothered me the most about this book was how the conversations the characters were having constantly seemed preachy, as if the author was using them only to share her knowledge of different subjects. They went on for WAY too long. Real people just don't talk like that, and it started to get really annoying.
If you're looking for a juicy beach read, this isn't it.
