From the New York Times bestselling author of Something Borrowed comes a novel that shows how someone with a ‘perfect life’ can lose it all—and then find everything.
Darcy Rhone thought she had it all figured out: the more beautiful the girl, the more charmed her life. Never mind substance. Never mind playing by the rules. Never mind karma.
But Darcy’s neat, perfect world turns upside down when her best friend, Rachel, the plain-Jane “good girl,” steals her fiancé, while Darcy finds herself completely alone for the first time in her life...with a baby on the way.
Darcy tries to recover, fleeing to her childhood friend living in London and resorting to her tried-and-true methods for getting what she wants. But as she attempts to recreate her glamorous life on a new continent, Darcy finds that her rules no longer apply. It is only then that Darcy can begin her journey toward self-awareness, forgiveness, and motherhood.
Something Blue is a novel about one woman’s surprising discoveries about the true meaning of friendship, love, and happily-ever-after. It’s a novel for anyone who has ever, even secretly, wondered if the last thing you want is really the one thing you need.

Everyone is raving about Emily Giffin and Something Borrowed!
“Page-turning, heartbreakingly honest...Instead of falling back on easy chick-lit clichés, Giffin deftly depicts the hopeful hearts behind an unsympathetic situation.” –Entertainment Weekly, Grade A
“What kind of self-described ‘nice girl’ would sleep with her best friend’s fiancé? One who’s seriously flawed, like this delightful debut novel’s heroine, but also surprisingly winning and real.” –Glamour
“Truly stands out. It is as much about the meaning and value of friendship as it is about love.” –Booklist (starred review)
“The characters are authentic...Captures what it’s like to be 30 and single in the city, when your life pretty much revolves around friendships and love and their attendant complexities, rivalries and hoped-for happily-ever-afters.” –San Francisco Chronicle
“Both hilarious and thoughtfully written...You may never think of friendships—their duties, the oblique dances of power and their give-and-take—quite the same way again.” –Seattle Times
“One of the hottest books of the summer.” –Atlanta Journal-Constitution
“Sharply observed and beautifully etched.” –Newark Star-Ledger
“Sprightly...dead-on dialogue, real-life complexity and genuine warmth.” –Sarasota Herald-TribuneAbout the Author :
