Linda Francis Lee needs to return to writing historical romance. She excelled in that area and my books became keepers. This book is not a keeper. There were really no likeable characters. The heroine is self absorbed. I got tired of the French especially moi, fabu, and verra. I could not relate to these people and had no emotional ties or really cared about them. The average reader will not be a junior leaguer.

I loved this book. Reading about the very proper Frede Ware trying to teach the spandex and feather-wearing Nikki how to fit in and be a lady was truly funny, but also touching to watch their friendship grow. And Howard Grout is priceless. All around, a great read.

This is Lee's best! I couldn't put it down! I was laughing out loud because, not only does she hit the mark with so many of the characters, but she tells a great story. Frede is a hoot, Nikki is a riot, and Nina had me laughing to the point of tears. I hope Lee follows up with a sequel. If you want something fun and clever, this is the book.

I thought this book was a great way to spend a few hours. Seeing the way that Frede and Howard brought Gordon down and then watching Gordon squirm when Frede finally bested him totally made up for all of the times that Frede's Southern lady crap popped up. The whole Pilar thing caught me by surprise but I'm glad that things ended the way that it did. The ending was a lot different from what I'm used to but I didn't exactly hate it. I enjoyed the book overall and was surprised by how funny it was. I enjoyed the little adventures that Frede went on while trying to whip Nikki into a gentle lady. But my favorite part of this book was most definitely Nina. She flat out rocked! If you haven't read this book and you enjoy chick lit type romances then I would definitely recommend this.

This was my first and last book by this author. The story repeats it's self to many times. Goes on and on about not much. Save your time and money and skip it!

Twenty-eight years old wealthy Fredericka ¿Frede¿ Mercedes Hildebrand Ware belongs to the chic exclusive Junior League of Willow Creek, Texas. Frede adheres strictly to the rules of behavior so she dresses in an acceptably fashion and behaves accordingly avoiding scandal at all cost. When her husband Gordon has an affair, she ignores it as long as the tryst remains covert when he absconds with her family money, fleeing the country, Frede keeps silent because status is everything.------------------ She turns to her neighbor attorney Howard Grout, who would never make it as a club member, for assistance though he is uncouth he can be trusted to keep quiet. However, the legal fee may be too high for ¿Queen¿ snob Frede Howard wants her royal Frede to gain membership admittance for his wife Nikki to the Junior League of Willow Creek though the woman is a garish outsider. Reluctantly Frede agrees, but first works on toning down the tawdry lawyer¿s wife to make her less unacceptable while Howard follows Gordon¿s money trail.---------------------- Frede is obnoxious and has her values so engrained in image that she comes across as a cold egotistical person and that leads to fans cheering Gordon for splitting her spelling out words and broken French 101 add to the reader¿s dislike of her. Still the other Junior Leaguers add eccentricity and the relationship between Frede and Nikki, which goes back to high school, is fun to follow as both begin to understand wearing the other¿s shoes. Fans of Linda Francis Lee will enjoy this lighthearted romp narrated by a protagonist who most will agree deserves the Grout treatment.----------------- Harriet Klausner

The author has created an over-the-top heroine, Frederika, who is so full of herself that she could be completely obnoxious. But Ms Lee keeps her under control with a series of life changing events which are greeted by Frede with a combination of denial, desire for revenge and attitude. You'd like to not like Frede but watching her change is fun. And so is the book! Not my usual read but what a great change.
