Readers who enjoyed Giffin’s stellar debut, Something Borrowed, might be surprised to find that the villainess of that novel is the heroine of this one. Selfish but beautiful Darcy is reeling from the betrayal of her best friend, Rachel, and her fiance, Dex, even though she cheated on Dex with his friend Marcus. Darcy is carrying Marcus’ child, so she assumes he’ll take care of her. After all, she’s always gotten everything she’s ever wanted. But when Marcus dumps her, she finds herself pregnant and alone.

Something Blue is a chick lit novel that takes a bit to get into because it is hard to really like Darcy. In fact, she annoys the heck out of you until she starts to grow and change. Ssurprisingly the book has an interior focus as you get to know Darcy and the life she has built for herself. The setting could be anywhere, characters memorable, with a moderate pace. 2005, 352 pages.
