"Brilliant.... I absolutely loved it."--Kate Atkinson
In the well-heeled milieu of New York's Upper East Side, coolly elegant Philippa Lye is the woman no one can stop talking about. Despite a shadowy past, Philippa has somehow married the scion of the last family-held investment bank in the city. And although her wealth and connections put her in the center of this world, she refuses to conform to its gossip-fueled culture.
Then, into her precariously balanced life, come two women: Gwen Hogan, a childhood acquaintance who uncovers an explosive secret about Philippa's single days, and Minnie Curtis, a newcomer whose vast fortune and frank revelations about a penurious upbringing in Spanish Harlem put everyone on alert.
When Gwen's husband, a heavy-drinking, obsessive prosecutor in the US Attorney's Office, stumbles over the connection between Philippa's past and the criminal investigation he is pursuing at all costs, this insulated society is forced to confront the rot at its core and the price it has paid to survive into the new millennium.
Macy has written a modern-day HOUSE OF MIRTH, not for the age of railroads and steel but of hedge funds and overnight fortunes, of scorched-earth successes and abiding moral failures. A brilliant portrait of love, betrayal, fate and chance, MRS marries razor-sharp social critique and page-turning propulsion into an unforgettable tapestry of the way we live in the 21st Century.

3.5 elegant stars to Mrs.! ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ .5
Caitlin Macy’s novel, Mrs., is a character study featuring Philippa Lye, a socialite who has it all, or so it appears to be precariously portrayed. Her life is shaken up when two other women enter the scene, Gwen Hogan and Minnie Curtis. The dynamics between th...

First of all, thank you so much to Little, Brown and Company for sending me a free finished copy of this book, I really appreciate it!
I feel TERRIBLE, but this was just not the book for me. I got to page 76 and I just could not go on. I wasn’t into the book at all and there wasn’t anything g...

Thank you Little Brown & Company for my free copy for review!
It is important to realize that this is a character-driven story - there is a plot, and it's equal parts scandalous and delicious - but that's not quite the point here. Macy's writing in this book is being compared to a modern Edith...

2.5- Was looking for something a little more gossipy like Primates Of Park Avenue or Swans of Fifth. This wasn't it, and the characters were never fleshed out enough to be real in their own right.

3.5 stars, really. The writing is good, the plot slightly less so. Like many other reviewers I almost gave up on this book (and I rarely, rarely do that) because the characters were completely unrelatable and the plot moved slowly. I like Ms Macy's writing and observances but did not give a lick...

“Mrs.” Is another novel about the ultra privileged families in New York. What sets this one apart from others is author Caitlin Macy’s writing skills. She provides great observations of the insecurities of the wealthy, and humorously pokes fun at them.
Philippa Skinker is an ex fashion model who...

This was not exactly what I expected but I liked it. Sometimes I felt like I had missed something, rather than just didn't find it out yet, and there are a couple of thing where I feel like "really, would someone have reacted that way?" But I chalk that up to me not being rich. I did enjoy the oc...

I received a free signed copy of Mrs. from BEA in exchange for a fair review.
This is an interesting look at wealthy society in New York mainly through the lenses of the women, the Mrs.-es. The story spirals between three women Philippa, Minnie and Gwen and how their interactions have repercussio...

It might be a bit unfair to rate this book as 1 star after choosing to finish it after 107 pages but, try as I might, there was no way I could get in to the book. By page 50 I realised that absolutely nothing had happened and was still not happening any time soon. I had no interest in the charact...
