She spent all of the first Scruples book bringing couples together, and she spends most of this one either breaking them up or killing them off...
One of krantz's better novels
Continuing the story started in Scruples, the characters are great.
Excellent follow-up to the original book. The characters continued to grow and mature and made the reading a delight. Highly recommend!
Wealthy and gorgeous Billy Ikehorn has a secret, but when her movie producer husband Vito Orsini's never-before-mentioned teenage daughter shows up, Billy's secret, and her marriage, become irrelevant. She mothers Gigi, starting her off, naturally, with an expensive new haircut and wardrobe. Meanwhile, Billy's Beverly Hills-based designer clothes store, Scruples, is so successful she opens new branches. Then a tragedy involving her key staff sends the distraught Billy fleeing to Paris, where she has an affair with a sculptor. Gigi moves to New York, lives with lingerie model Sasha (the "Great Slut") Nevsky, and falls for Sasha's brother Zach. Ultimately, Billy realizes that having scads of money doesn't buy happiness (though it does make it possible to dine in five-star restaurants, live in groovy houses, wear fabulous clothes, stay forever young-looking, and finance your own business venture to design less expensive clothes for average-income folks
I enjoyed it very much when I read it many moons ago!
Gigi, a darling girl gets semi-adopted by Billy Ikehorn and their lives are never the same again...
A typical Judith Krantz book...loads of action and suspense.
An easy read, this book tries to top it's prequiel (Scruples) but is unable to do it.
Judith Krantz is always good read.
Takes up where its predecessor left off - all the usual suspects move onward & upward in rich experiences - gains & sadly, losses.
Judith Krantz is awesome.. this book was also a tv movie..
