"Four Blondes tells the stories of four women caught at crossroads in their lives, facing choices and realizations that will redefine them forever. A beautiful B-list model finagles rent-free summerhouses in the Hamptons from her wealthy lovers, until she discovers that she can get a man for the summer but she can't get what she wants. A high-powered magazine columnist's floundering marriage to a literary journalist is thrown into crisis when her husband spends a wild night on the town with his movie star friend. A self-styled Cinderella whose royal husband was one of the world's most eligible bachelors records her descent into paranoia as she attempts to recreate herself and her world. A writer who fears her time for finding a husband is running out travels to London in search of the kind of love and devotion she can't find in Manhattan - and gets far more than she bargained for."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Four stories about fairly unlikable, unsympathetic women and their lives. We follow their angst until they finally get to their "over the rainbow." I'm sorry, I just didn't get in to this one. Read full review
