A national bestseller in England, this delightful new novel has been called "Frothy, frivolous, and fun." (Harpers & Queen)

Jane, a struggling, twenty-something writer for a glossy women's magazine, has inadvertently just landed her worst nightmare of an assignment. Not only does she have a less-than-satisfying relationship with her boring and cantankerous boyfriend, who has a host of other insecurities, but now her eccentric magazine editor has made her the personal ghostwriter for the town's latest bedazzling, blonde, and busty socialite: Champagne D'Vyne. While Jane reels from the annoying and distasteful business of investigating, and then glamorizing, the vacuous details of Champagne's life, her new assignment suddenly becomes intertwined with her personal life in surprising ways. Will her own romantic prospects broaden? Will she be able to help save her best friend's dilapidated country manor with a matchmaking scheme? At once whimsical and satirical, Simply Divine is already a smash hit in England, and will undoubtedly be a crowd-pleaser for American readers.

As Jane grumpily endeavors to spin the minutiae of Champagne's shallow existence--her spoiled dog ""Gucci,"" her sexual exploits, her racy designer ensembles--into a popular column, she must also contend with her own problems, including new romantic prospects.
