A quick read that's a little deeper than most chick lit--ending resolved itself a little too quickly though.

A great cast of characters, an interesting mystery and a little romance too. Very funny; reminded me of the Stephanie Plum series.

Very enjoyable cozy mystery -- keeps you guessing "who done it" to the very end. I'm looking forward to the other books in this series.

A quick chick lit read by the author of the Shopaholic series -- not as funny as those books, but a good read nonetheless.

A great summer read that makes you appreciate the important things in life. I really liked the characters of the Sheffield sisters and how they learn to reconnect after years of estrangement. This is one of the best Patti Callahan Henry books that I have read and I would highly recommend it.

A book that reads like part gossip column/part romance. A fun read that shows life behind the velvet rope.

An excellent fast-paced read. A chick lit mystery that's heavy and clever on the mystery and a good romance too!

Another fast paced adventure in the Designer name trilogy. Givenchy Code (Book 1) was a little better, but this was still a fast, fun read.
