Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of Something Borrowed comes a novel that shows how someone with a "perfect life" can lose it all—and then find everything.
Darcy Rhone thought she had it all figured out: the more beautiful the girl, the more charmed her life. Never mind substance. Never mind playing by the rules. Never mind karma. But Darcy’s neat, perfect world turns upside down when her best friend, Rachel, the plain-Jane “good girl”, steals her fiancé, while Darcy finds herself completely alone for the first time in her life…with a baby on the way.
Darcy tries to recover, fleeing to her childhood friend living in London and resorting to her tried-and-true methods for getting what she wants. But as she attempts to recreate her glamorous life on a new continent, Darcy finds that her rules no longer apply. It is only then that Darcy can begin her journey toward self-awareness, forgiveness, and motherhood.
Something Blue is a novel about one woman’s surprising discoveries about the true meaning of friendship, love, and happily-ever-after. It’s a novel for anyone who has ever, even secretly, wondered if the last thing you want is really the one thing you need.

I love it when a sequel outshines the original!

As much as I love "Something Borrowed", "Something Blue" is hands down my favorite of the two. The writing here is just as good but Darcy as a narrator is more interesting than Rachel. And her observations are wittier and snarkier which makes it a lot more fun. The ending is definitely predictable but Darcy's journey to her happily ever after is hard fought and well deserved and I loved watching her get there.

I was a little concerned when I saw that the narrator had changed because I really enjoyed Jennifer Wiltsie's Darcy but Christine Marshall did a great job.

amazing book, amazing narrator

So I've read the book before, loved it, and decided to give the audible a try since its been years.
Since the others have all written about how great the book is already, I'll skip that part and just write about the narrator, and this book as an "audible", even though I do subscibe to that same opinion as well.

Christine Marshall really makes the book come alive. Pleasant to listen to, her voice has perfect intonation without being annoying, she really makes the characters come alive and relatable and real.

The "something borrowed" audible had (I think?) an older woman narrating which did not match the character at all, and Darcy's voice in that was shrill and annoying. In this, its just right.

Its a great listen.
