the-luxeThe Luxeby Anna Godbersen is a classic love story-the kind where everyone falls in love with the wrong person.  The main character, Elizabeth Holland, is scandalously in love with Will, the coachmen.  Will is also sought after by Lina, the miad, who plays an important part in the book’s final twist.  Elizabeth is engaged to Will Schoonmaker, who is in love with Elizabeth’s sister, Diana-who loves him back.  To wrap it all up, Elizabeth’s best friend and rival is also in love with Henry, and can’t stand to lose him to Elizabeth, who by the way, is only marrying him because her family has become poor.  Intriguing premise? Definitely.  Does the book live up to it?  Absolutely.  Pick up this book and you’ll be dying to figure out what happens in the end-especially after seeing Elizabeth’s funeral within thee first few pages!  Packed with intrigue, gossip, scandal, and love, The Luxe is one book I couldn’t put down.  While it may not be well written, and the characters are not as fleshed-out as I usually like, I still couldn’t put it down.  It’s a soap opera, plain and simple, but a very good one.  I can’t wait to read the sequel, Rumors, and I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.
