Sarah Broadhurst's view...

26-year old glamorous New York agony aunt, Rosalie, accidentally breaks an ornament in rich friend Bellaâs home and comes to the attention of Bellaâs father. Oh my, … suave, sexy, irresistible, and so Rosalie, compelled by curiosity, finds herself drawn into living a guilty secret as his mistress. Sharp, funny, poignant, glitzy and well-observed, this comic romance has the added delight of Rosalieâs question and answer advice from her ‘columnsâ heading each chapter. Itâs delicious.

Synopsis

Midnight In Manhattan by Francesca Delbanco

A sharp, funny, expertly mixed cocktail of comedy and manners, launching Francesca Delbanco as a refreshing new voice in women's fiction

Twenty-six-year-old Rosalie Preston works as an advice columnist for the romantically perplexed readership of GIRL TALK magazine. Her real passion is acting and with a group of friends, she spends her spare time working with a small theatre company in New York's trendy East Village.

When Rosalie breaks an ornament at the luxurious family home of one of her friends, she comes to the attention of Berglan Starker. Berglan is not only suave, sexy and much-married; he's the father of Rosalie's best friend, Bella... Compelled by curiosity, a taste for adventure and a penchant for the alluring complimentary toiletries of New York's ritziest hotels, Rosalie finds herself drawn into living the life of the Manhattan mistress.

But it's not just the secret dinners and the relentless pursuit of sexy-but-tasteful lingerie that makes her life difficult. Harbouring a guilty secret is much harder than Rosalie ever thought it would be . . .

Reviews

'An expertly mixed comedy of cocktails and manners, this witty romance delivers its twists and turns with a kick. A mixture of Sex and The City and Bridget Jones's Diary, this novel serves up just the right romance. If you've ever fallen for the wrong man, or changed your mind about the right one, you have to read it.'
