Publisher's Summary

Meet Emmy, Leigh, and Adriana. Best friends since college, each is 20-something (okay, almost 30) and has seen her share of career foils and romantic foibles in the world's greatest city: New York. Having been friends for more than a decade, they know that they all need a change.On Valentine's Day, they are each alone for one reason or another. At dinner together, the trio makes a pact. Within one year, each woman will change the thing that most challenges her. For Emmy, good Emmy, whose boyfriend of five years just left her for a personal trainer, it will be to find romance - or a fling - in every foreign country she visits (and given her job as a secret shopper for high-end resorts, she goes to a lot of foreign countries).For Leigh, a book editor, her goal is to get on the other side of the typewriter and write her own book - much to the dismay of her boyfriend, who is a Very Public Figure.And for commitment-phobic, Daddy's little rich-girl Adriana (she can't hold a job, or a boyfriend, unless he's married and therefore erratic and unattainable), her goal is to have an engagement ring and a house in Scarsdale.Each woman starts the first day of the year of reckoning with the best of intentions - which is exactly why the pact goes immediately and exceptionally awry.Filled with the delicious insider details of a celebrity-level (or celebrity-wannabe) lifestyle, Chasing Harry Winston brings listeners once again into the heart of an elite world, where friendships will be tested to the point of breaking.Let the games begin.

Who are these characters?

The characters are anything but sympathetic and it is impossible to relate to them. We only get a superficial look at the personality of each character leaving a void so that the reader feels lost as to the what makes each tick. This reader is unable to make the transition from outsider to being drawn into the story. The story lacked punch and is uninteresting.

Truly forgettable

I did not enjoy this book. The characters are too stereotypical for my taste; withouth depth, at least not enough for me to begin to really care about them. The plot is silly, and for the most part portrays women as loose (or willing to become loose), shallow and calculating. The whole book seems to hinge on the desires of women with apparently low self-esteem to catch and keep a man for mostly all the wrong reasons.
This was my second foray into chick-lit, and apparently it's just not for me.
