(43) Hedge Fund Wives by Tatiana Boncompagni

Before I forget, I would like to thank TJ Dietderich from Planned Television Arts for the copy of Hedge Fund Wives.

If you are unfamiliar with Tatiana Boncompagni, I encourage you to run right out and pick up her first book, Gilding Lily. And don't forget to get Hedge Fund Wives while you are at it.

Ms. Boncompagni has written yet another book about the social elite of New York City and just like her previous book, Ms Boncompagni has shown us that not all of the social elite have it easy.

Marcy Emerson and her husband, John, have moved from Chicago to New York City so that John can take a job managing a Hedge Fund for Zenith. With John's busy work schedule, Marcy is thrown to the wolves. The Hedge Fund Wives. Wading through the sharks is a difficult task, but she has found good friends in Jill & Gigi. They will watch her back through thick or thin, right?

John & Marcy are in New York a little more than a year when the housing market collapses, the stock markets take a dive, and the life Marcy has become accustomed to as a Hedge Fund Wife comes crashing down. She finds that her perfect marriage is far from perfect and that some of her friends really aren't. Can Marcy survive the Hedge Fund Wives when she is no longer one of them?

I will never be a Hedge Fund Wife. I will never have millions of dollars to decorate my apartment. But, no longer do I believe that all Hedge Fund Wives are like the women of "Real Housewives of New York City". Tatiana Boncompagni has written a great book at a real woman. A strong woman dealing with hard issues. Not only does Marcy Emerson survive, she thrives.

Hedge Fund Wives is a great book. I thoroughly enjoyed her engaging story and dynamic characters. I look forward to the next book she writes.


Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
