Violet Parry is living the quintessential life of luxury in the Hollywood Hills with David, her rock-and-roll manager husband, and her darling toddler, Dot. She has the perfect life--except that she's deeply unhappy. David expects the world of Violet but gives little of himself in return. When she meets Teddy, a roguish small-time bass player, Violet comes alive, and soon she's risking everything for the chance to find herself again. Also in the picture are David's hilariously high-strung sister, Sally, on the prowl for a successful husband, and Jeremy, the ESPN sportscaster savant who falls into her trap. For all their recklessness, Violet and Sally will discover that David and Jeremy have a few surprises of their own.… (mere)

Got through it because I had nothing else to read and left it in the hotel.

I liked Bernadette a lot, this one was not at all in the same league for me. I did not find the central romance believable at all, did not like the characters or believe the characters either.. ( )

adult fiction. Got 88 pages or so in, but the characters weren't likeable enough to continue (unlike Semple's much-acclaimed Bernadette, whom the reader can't help but like immediately, despite her flaws). ( )

This book is barely okay - touted as satirical, but I didn't find anything satirical or entertaining or remotely appealing about the story or the characters. After enjoying "Bernadette", I expected to like this book too. Definitely didn't.

The unhappy rich wife was so stereotypical and the troubled marriage with a husband that works too hard and doesn't listen and a bored and aimless wife becomes boring to read about. And sister Sally.... really a nasty piece of work, manipulative and shallow and so unlikeable.

Don't waste your time. ( )

I did not enjoy this one as much as Where'd You Go, Bernadette? but it is a different animal altogether so perhaps that's not fair. This one is certainly well written, witty, and interesting. It kept me guessing until the end. I think maybe some of the satire was lost on me, as I have never lived in or near LA. But the relationships seemed real. Although I didn't truly like any of the characters, they all had their pros and cons, as we all do. Overall, they were just people trying to live their lives, making mistakes and trying again.

This book certainly cemented my respect for this author, and I'll watch for more from her! ( )

i needed a book to read during the breaks at Becca's Lacrosse tournament, and this was perfect. Semple captures LA life, but the ending is not realistic. ( )
