The rock star in seat 3A : a novel by Jill Kargman( Book )
9 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and Dutch and held by 756 libraries worldwide
"It's Hazel's 30th birthday and she has everything she's ever wanted: a kickass job at a video-game company, a dream New York City apartment, and the perfect boyfriend - who also happens to be a personal chef, and has just proposed in the most romantic way. With good food, video games and love, Hazel thinks she's happy -- but not ready to get married. So when her most far-fetched fantasy suddenly enters the realm of the possible, shouldn't she drop everything to see it through? The morning after her birthday, Hazel leaves for a business trip and receives a surprise upgrade to first class, boards the plane, and sees the person in seat 3B: it's her celebrity crush, rock star Finn Schiller. Just the night before, she had confessed her infatuation with Finn at her birthday party, and her boyfriend joked that she had a free pass if she ever met him. Hazel can't believe fate has actually thrown them together. Even more unbelievable is the flight that follows, as they genuinely connect - even after he sees her vomit due to plane turbulence. Finn likes her uncensored cursing, wicked sense of humor, and that she's not like all his groupies; Hazel likes his killer looks, ripped physique and soulful music. But what started as a fantasy quickly becomes a real attraction and after a dream date and taste of the rock-star life with Finn in Los Angeles, Hazel is forced to examine the track her life is on. Indulging in a passionate affair with a rock star seems crazy - but could she ever forgive herself if she walked away from her wildest dreams coming true? Seasoning with her signature wit and hilarious dialogue, Jill Kargman presents a fairytale romance with a twist"--Provided by publisher
The ex-Mrs. Hedgefund by Jill Kargman( Book )
9 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and Polish and held by 753 libraries worldwide
In The Ex- Mrs. Hedgefund, Kargman creates a hilarious, deliciously scathing send-up of the ultra-rich, ultra-ambitious hedge fund set. Seemingly sheltered from the threats of economic collapse and the risk of downsizing from new Roger Viviers to consignment Manolos, the Hedge Fund men and their wives occupy a world of boundless excess and secluded luxury, a step above the already outrageous wealth of the Upper East Side. Married to the founder of Comet Capital, Holly Talbott is slowing becoming a reluctant Mrs. Hedgefund. Sure, it's great to be a stay-at-home mom to her son Miles and to have a rolodex of eager donors when she is fundraising for the local hospital. But, the lunches are called luncheons because they take eons, even botox can't stop her mother-in-law's withering stares, and her husband, Tim, is away so often it feels like she's single again. When an adventure in trendy Williamsburg leads to a shocking discovery, Holly soon learns that not all of Tim's trips have been for business. Forced to choose between living honestly and being a Mrs. Hedgefund, Holly begins to navigate a new New York existence and finds that sometimes exes have all the fun, and in the most unexpected places
