The Debutante-Blog Tour

About The Debutante

• Paperback: 400 pages
Publisher: Avon A (October 5, 2010)
A gifted artist, Cate has come to London from New York to escape her recent past. Working for her aunt’s auction house, she is sent down to Devon to value the contents of Endsleigh House, the once gracious but now crumbling estate of a former socialite. There, hidden in the back of a dusty bookshelf, Cate discovers an old shoebox. Inside is a strange assortment of objects: an exquisite pair of dancing shoes circa 1930; a diamond brooch; a photograph of a young sailor; a dance card; and a pearl and emerald Tiffanys bracelet.
Intrigued by her find, Cate sets out to solve the mystery of the box, becoming immersed in the story of its owner, Baby Blythe. Bright, beautiful, and reckless, Baby was the most famous debutante of her generation . . . and the most dangerous. As the clues begin to reveal a shocking tale of destructive, addictive love, Cate finds herself being drawn deeper into Baby’s tragic life story—a story that will force Cate to face some dark truths about her own.

My Review:

Can you eat a book? I mean besides ripping it out page by page and eating the paper? I felt like I did with this book. When I closed the last page I felt like I had just eaten a 8 course meal at a 5 star restaurant and savored each mouthful. Crazy description, uh? It had everything I could want in a book. Intrigue, romance, and delicious socialites. I want to say so much more but I am afraid I will give the whole story away. This book should have the element of surprise and a surprise it is. I looked at the bubblegum cover and thought " Good, I have some fluff reading to read in between my literary masterpieces". How wrong I was. I will admit I liked the past tense more than the present tense but with any multi-course meal you always like some courses more than others. I have Kathleen's book Flirt on hold at the library. If it is anywhere near as good as this one I am in for a real treat.

I would recommend this book to just about anyone because it is that good.

Excellent review. And I was surprised that almost everyone before you on the book tour had a high opinion as well (you know, normally at least someone isn't pleased). I had this book on my TBR list from your review, and after reading everyone else's I'm so excited to read it, I want to jump in the car and go buy it now. :) Thanks for the review and the recommendation.
