Scruples is the novel that created publishing history, the first-and widely acknowledged to be the very best-novel ever written about the staggeringly luxurious life of a Beverly Hills boutique and the people who work in it.
The story of Billy as she goes from a chubby young woman, to a sophisticate french young lady, to a bride of a wealthy older man, and then beyond...
Rereading! I read Scruples 2 first back in college, but then reading this one, it was delightful to see the history. So I'm rereading the series again in order. The only thing that I don't like about this book is how it jumps around - a chapter about one character, then we drop off the planet to a different storyline. I want to read REALLY fast to get to the next part about the person I'm reading about. Which I suppose is why she's such an intoxicating author!
