Overview

Meet Vanessa, an almost thirty-something New Yorker who thinks she's got it all: marriage-material boyfriend Ethan, her own bilingual preschool, a closet full of designer fashions, and daily diner dates with her best friend Emily. But when Ethan doesn't turn out to be all he's supposed to be, Vanessa's world instantly unravels.

Suddenly single, she stumbles upon a wealthy man and moves to Palm Beach to marry him, only to find the shocking truth behind the source of his wealth. Is having everything worth sacrificing who you really are? But what about the Shoe Salon at Bergdorf's? The Louboutin collection? Vanessa finds herself at a crossroads, and the choices she makes might surprise everyone-even herself. Witty, insightful, and eminently relatable, Erica Negi's story is a modern twist on the Cinderella tale-albeit in designer shoes. Reminiscent of the works of Jennifer Weiner and Candace Bushnell, My Life in Loubies is one woman's uproarious journey to adulthood.

Very cute story. Although I enjoyed it, the lack of editing & tremendous number of grammatical errors were very distracring to me. I hesitate to be so critical, especially of newer authors, but in this case I found that it was difficult to focus on the story at times. Overall, fun, enjoyable read.

I'm a big fan of supporting new authors, so I was really excited to read Erica Negi's first book. It was such a great story that I just couldn't put it down. I'm very familiar with the places in the book and I loved all the details, making you feel like you were really there. I hope she expands on Vanessa's character or writes a story about Emily.

I think this book rivals popular authors such as Sophia Kinsella and Emily Giffin! I hope Erica Negi comes out with several books after this. You will fall in love with her characters!

I enjoyed this book a lot. I got a sample on my Nook and did not want to put it down. The story was engaging and well written. I could relate to so many parts of the story since the author didn't fail to leave out a detail or am emotion. One of a few books in awhile that actually left me thinking about the characters. I am definitely on Team Vanessa. Oh yeah, and I love the cover on my Nook color!
