The Luxe

The Luxe series by Anna Godbersen

Ok, is anyone else as crazy about these books as I am? It's like Gossip Girl with corsets. For those of you who haven't yet caught the bug, here's what you need to know: it's 1899 and the world is obsessed not with actors and singers but with the society girls of New York. There's Elizabeth Holland, who is the model of propriety and sure to marry well. There's her younger sister, Diana, who cares more about adventure then appearances. There's Penelope, always looking for a way to replace Elizabeth as Manhattan's shining star. Finally there's Lina, the Hollands' maid, who'd do anything to change her lot in life. Then there are the boys in their lives. And of course, the secrets. Secrets so juicy they'd make the front page of all the papers, and so damaging they could flip this little world upside down. And, you know how secrets are...they have a way of coming out.
