Overview

Dumping Billy by Olivia Goldsmith

The bestselling author of The First Wives Club returns with another delightful modern-day battle of the sexes—dished up with scathing wit, hilarity, and plenty of attitude. There's an old saying that life is what happens while you are busy making other plans. That's certainly true for 28-year-old Kate Jameson who's worked hard to cross the bridge from Brooklyn to Manhattan and now works just as hard to keep her sophisticated new friends away from her old neighborhood "posse, " the so-called Bitches of Bushwick. With her cute apartment in Chelsea, her cold but erudite professor boyfriend and her satisfying career as a school psychologist, Kate has put the heartbreak of past lousy boyfriends behind her and tries to stay aloof from the marriage mania that has infected her old gang from Brooklyn. With the imminent engagement of her best friend Bina, it seems that Kate will be the only single girl left in the "posse." But when Bina's intended gets the coldest of feet at the last minute, every part of Kate's orderly life is thrown into disarray. Before she knows what has hit her, her debonair Manhattan friends have colluded with the "Bitches" and devised a plan guaranteed to get Bina married and drive Kate crazy. The key to the scheme is "Dumping Billy." Too good looking for his own good, Billy dates legions of girls, dumps them—and every single one of them gets married to the next guy she dates. The trick is to get Billy to date Bina, dump Bina, and get Bina married off. But, in Olivia Goldsmith's fiction, as in life, nothing goes according to plan.

I really like this author. The book was pretty good. Sometimes you liked Kate and other times you couldn't stand her. Very well written.

I picked this book because I loved First Wives Club, but was disappointed in this one. It's good, well written, but the plot took FOREVER to come to a resolution and then was rushed in the final chapters. It's a nice light read, but not the same quality as FWC was.

I really enjoyed reading Dumping Billy and the characters were all very well written for their roles. Its one of those happy go lucky romantic comedies that you could see as becoming a good movie someday. Great read for woman in their late 20's or early 30's that are still single and searching, but not settling.

Unlike her ¿Bi**ches of Bushwick¿ female pals, whose only goals in life are marriage and children in a Brooklyn Forever haven Kate Jameson wanted more, which was why she fled was across the Bay into Manhattan. She worked hard at school and shockingly went to an Ivy College studying to become a psychologist. Her dreams seem answered as she lives a good singles life in Chelsea apartment and enjoys her work as the school psychologist at the exclusive Andrew Country Day school. --- When Kate and Brooklyn¿s Barber Bar owner Billy Nolan meet, they feel an instant attraction. Kate's best friend, Elliot Winston and his significant other fear that Kate is determined to commit romantic suicide as Billy not only lives in that third world nation Brooklyn, but also every time he dumps a woman she marries her next date. The gay couple worries about who Kate will marry especially if she meets him in the barbaric outer boroughs. Kate decides DUMPING BILLY first will keep her from the Billy curse so she arranges for a Brooklyn B¿s to date him not realizing how jealous she would become. --- The latest Olivia Goldsmith¿s novel DUMPING BILLY is a zany romantic romp, but alas not one of the great author¿s better works (see THE FIRST WIVES CLUB) as the key players even Kate seem more like caricatures stereotyping an image rather than full blooded New Yorkers. The females do fare better than their male counterparts as the Brooklyn B girls provide some amusement with their contrast to the one who got away Kate even as she considers returning to the fold. Ms. Goldsmith¿s most dedicated fans will want to read this madcap cross-boroughs tale. --- Harriet Klausner
