Overview

Diana Foxton is the Toast of New York. She's rich, British and beautiful, with a designer wardrobe to die for. Recently married to the head of a publishing empire, she fills her days with shopping, gossiping, and hosting the hottest parties in town.

But when she discovers her husband is having an affair, her glamorous bubble bursts. She suddenly finds herself without any money or job skills, shunned by the glittering society she once ruled. On her own for the first time, she takes the only job she can get, exchanges her Manolo Blahniks for Payless, and tries to settle into the life of a woman who does her own laundry, buys her own groceries, and takes the bus. Along the way, she discovers that her handsome new boss might be interested in more than her pretty face, and that she just might make it on her own.

I usually just read Danielle Steel books only. But Louise Bagshawe is more like Jackie Collins. But I just could not put this book down it was wonderful. I loved every second of it.

I love this book more each time I read it. Diana is an inspiring character; reading her story you feel like you, too, could storm the entrepreneurial set, keep a budget, and remain a lady the whole way. This book is poignant, sexy, and just plain fun.

I normally have a short attention span and need a book to keep me interested from page one, which is what Louise Bagshawe did in this book. I can't wait to read her other books!

This book is really funny, I loved it! When I read the first chapter, I didn't know if I'd like it or not. I thought about quitting the book, but I stuck with it and loved the rest. It's hilarious! The only part someone might not like is the sexuality of the book; some of it probably could have been left out. But overall it's great book.

If you are in the need to feel horny this book works. But not only that is has an interesting plot. I just dont like that every girl in the book seems to be really really skinny and drop dead gorgeous, thats not reality, unless you paid a good doctor.

I loved this book. Once I started I couldn't wait to read more and get to the end. I couldn't put this book down especially during Michael and Diana's romps.

This is one of the best books I've ever read. You will laugh, cry, stomp your foot, cheer, rant & rave. I highly recommend reading it!

In London wealthy heiress Diana Verity marries publisher Ernie Foxton, though he has an underhanded reputation within the industry and amidst the ladies. To Ernie, Diana is the perfect trophy wife when he relocates to New York to take over Blakeley¿s Publishing House and turn it into a global giant. To Diana, Ernie is her ticket to an exciting youthful world as a major Big Apple hostess.

In Brooklyn, Michael Cicero is making a success out of Green Eggs Books by reissuing out of print classic children¿s stories. However, Ernie wants control of Green Eggs and ruthlessly succeeds in his endeavor. At the same time, Diana catches Ernie in their bed in an S & M relationship with his mistress. Ernie destroys Diana in the subsequent divorce leading to her friends dropping her like she is contagious. This leads to Michael and Diana forming a partnership whose prime objective is to decapitate Ernie, but grows into something much more positive between them.

FOR ALL THE WRONG REASONS is an entertaining relationship drama that focuses on the lifestyles of the rich and famous. The key to the tale that makes Louise Bagshawe¿s novel different is that the author leaves no doubt that the residents of the world of glitter contain character flaws, some very ugly. Though how much shopping can ornaments do will leave even shopaholics tired though the story line will prove fun for fans of Jackie Collins¿ HOLLYWOOD WIVES.
