Lipstick Jungle by Candace Bushnell

I read this because I was interested in watching the new NBC show starring Brooke Shields.

The three storylines focus on “three New York City women at the top of their fields, each navigating her way through business, relationships, scandal, success and betrayal.”

Nico O’Neilly is a editor in chief of Bonfire magazine. Wendy Healy is president of Parador Pictures and Victory Ford is a successful fashion designer. I liked Nico the best, and thought she was the most developed character. 

The book was ok, I had trouble keeping track at the beginning of some of the minor characters, and I didn’t like that a lot of the story seemed to be told in “flashback mode.” For instance, the character would open the chapter, and then relate what had happened since we last saw them. I didn’t have a good sense of the timeline of the novel either, and it wasn’t until the end when I realized the entire novel is supposed to take place in one year.

Also, there were some interesting observations on how can women have it all and money and power. Not typical chick-lit.
