"Outside, the world was quiet and dark. There was a new snow on the ground, but everyone in Gramercy, and up in fifth Avenue, and downtown, where leisure and comfort were not such givens, was inside by now. The New Year had come, but nothing in it seemed even remotely real."

True Love. False Friends. Scandalous Gossip.

Welcome Back To Manhattan, 1899.

Taschima's POV:

After bidding good-bye to New York's brightest star, Elizabeth Holland, rumors continue to fly about her untimely demise.

All eyes are on those closest to the dearly departed: her mischievous sister, Diana, now the family's only hope for redemption; New York's most notorious cad, Henry Schoon-maker, the flame Elizabeth never extinguished; the seductive Penelope Hayes, poised to claim all that her best friend left behind—including Henry; even Elizabeth's scheming former maid, Lina Broud, who discovers that while money matters and breeding counts, gossip is the new currency.

As old friends become rivals, Manhattan's most dazzling socialites find their futures threatened by whispers from the past. In this delicious sequel to The Luxe, nothing is more dangerous than a scandal . . . or more precious than a secret.

And still with all the problems the Hollands are facing, poverty, grieve, and a lot more, there is still a tiny window for what we fellows like to call love.

It is a tantalizing sequel, it made the series even better. All the characters have their own paths, twists and style that you just can't help but love. The way all their stories are bound together is just exquisite, and their stories by separate are wildly interesting. Everyones life is changing, from New York's sweet heart Elizabeth to the Hollands ex-maid's Lina- or Carolina.

 At the end you can't help to think about the "What if's?" of the story, and of the possibility of it ending any other way, but then u remember there is a sequel. This book will leave you heart broken, and begging for more. But it, read it, love it.
