When she returns to New York, Schuyler has to prepare for the prestigious Four Hundred Ball - open only to Blue Bloods. And then there's the dealing with Jack and Mimi Force.
I liked this book better than the first one. The author spent a bit of time on the other characters so we got a lot of character development all the way around. I'm not dying to rush out and buy the series or cancel all plans just so I can read these books but I am curious to see how the author develops the characters and where the story goes which is good.
