Abstract:

Darcy Van Aiken is doing just fine. She's an ICU nurse with an amicable divorce from her ex husband, Mike, two great kids, and a prescription for Ritalin. Then her older son, Jeremy, gets engaged to Cami Zander Brown, the daughter of a wealthy New York family, and her world is suddenly turned upside down. The source of her trouble is not Rose Zander Brown, Cami's elegant and accomplished mother. Nor is it Guy Zander Brown, Cami's charismatic and wildly succcessful literary agent father. Instead lurking in the shadows of Mike's new life is the beautifully dressed Claudia, a self described managed perfectionist. The plans for the Van Aiken Zander Brown wedding are growing more fabulous by the day, and Claudia has usurped Darcy's role in an effort to entrench herself in Mike's life and to boos her reputation with the Hamptons crowd. It's a battle of wills and wits, and what Darcy learns about herself and about family and friendship makes for a delicious, hilarious, touching read.
