From the back of the book:

Emily Pointer would rather jog naked through Harvey Nichols' beauty hall than be seen with last season's handbag.A fashion stylist with Chic magazine, Emily is a natural blonde, a effortless size 10, travels the world for work and gets 30 per cent discount at Prada. As far as she's concerned, life is perfect.So surely a night of wild sex with a hunky Australian photographer during the fashion show season in Milan will be just another fabulous experience to add to the package? Instead, Emily starts to discover that life can be messy- and the designer clothes in your closet can be squeezed out by the skeletons lurking in there too.From the bestselling author of Pants on Fire and a former magazine editor herself, comes the delicious tale of a woman who was kidding herself that another Birkin bag was all she needed to achieve fulfilment.

An easy-read chick lit.

Predictable CL but intriguing characters. Although I wasn't too keen on the whole adultery thing.

I just finished this today, and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it.
Like someone else mentioned, I wasn't overly fond of the adultery, but Emily was an amazing character to get wrapped up in!

It's ready to be shared!
