Four Blondes tells the stories of four women facing up to the limitations of their rapidly approaching middle age in an era that worships youth. From the former "It-girl" heroine of "Nice N'Easy", who each summer looks for a rich man who'll provide her with a house in the Hamptons, to the writer-narrator of "Single Process", who goes to London on a hunt for love and a good magazine story, Bushnell brings to life contemporary women in search of something more -- when the world is pushing for them to settle for less.

Sexy, funny, and wonderfully lush with gossip and scandal, Four Blondes will keep you turning pages long into the night.

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
