Recently I have read ''One Fifth Avenue'' by Candace Bushnell. It's basically the story of some high class New Yorkers and high-class -wannabes. There are a few deaths, conspiracies and young women who are willing to do anything to make it in New York. All these happen in One Fifth(which is an actual location/building in NY) however the characters are fictional. The book is recommended for middle aged women but I would recommend it to younger women as well. It is easy to read, funny and not boring at all.
