    1. Described as "delicious" by Vogue and a "touchingly bittersweet comedy of urban existence" by USA Today, I found it to be neither.The story revolves around Emma, a woman who is clearly inspired by Martha Stewart, Emma's family, and Emma's series of assistants. Emma is just out of prison and is trying to get back to life, and there are personal and professional issues she must work through. The story itself is okay and I can see that there would be an audience who would eat it up and be intrigued [...]



    2. I went through an emotional roller coaster reading this book but Surprisingly I Really enjoyed this book even though it resembles somewhat of Martha Stewart's life. The book started off Immediately letting us know that the main character, Emma Sutton,a sixty-two-year-old "tarnished queen of interior design," was a media darling going to prison for a Tax Evasion.The Good thing about Emma was that for the most part she was pretty successful in her furniture business(Interior Design) before incarce [...]


    3. Was a little scattered. Almost everything described by color was navy and the word "still" was way overused. Sweet ending though.


    4. Galanes' second novel revolves around Emma Sutton, once the queen of interior design who appeared regularly on Oprah, now a newly released convicted felon. Emma is determined to regain her balance -- personally and professionally -- but her old habits are hard to resist. The story opens at an auction, where she gets an antique table by misleading a Japanese diplomat who wants it for better reasons. From this less than stellar start, her week goes wrong as she deals with her ex-husband (who wants [...]


    5. After her release from prison for tax evasion, Emma Sutton, obviously modeled after Martha Stewart, finds herself disenchanted with the empire she had build from the ground up. The turning point comes at an auction, where Emma, in a moment of egotistical, cut-throat maneuvering purchases a table out from under a fellow bidder.As the story progresses, Emma’s guilt, felt for the first time in many years, drives her to make amends with the gentleman. While Emma is not transformed into a perfect p [...]


    6. I honestly don't even know what to say about this book. What was the point of it? It really just seemed like we got to look in on a week in the life of a cold hearted Martha Stewart. I mean the little girl was cute and really the only reason I soldiered on, but I want to know what was wrong with her. In fact I deserve to know after suffering through this book! And there was so much time spent whining about problems with parents/ the conflict between Emma and Cassy, so you'd think there would be [...]


    7. Meh. I want to say that this book was horrible, but that is a strong reaction and I don't really have a reaction. So just meh. I didn't feel for the characters they were dry. Except for the 2 daughters. Them I wanted to feel for and relate to, but the author didn't develop them or anyone else for that matter. The characters had potential, but the story line not so much. At least not on Emma's part. I didn't get her. The characters didn't cross each others path until the very end, but nothing hap [...]


    8. A sweet and funny story - the main character is a Martha Stewart-type queen of style coming off a year of prison after a tax cheat, with a drunk daughter, an ex-husband who still hangs around, and a personal assistant who really wants to please. She is domineering and imperious, yet the author finds and shows her vulnerability, and in the end paints a sympathetic picture. I only wished the book were a little longer.


    9. This book is not about cupcakes. Instead, it's about a barely fictionalized Martha Stewart character, her daughter, an assistant/school counselor, a woman who works in a candy factory and her morbidly obese 10 year old child. All of the various story lines start very separate from one another, and wind up together at the end. And Nakashima tables play a role as well- while I appreciate the beauty of a true Nakashima, I don't understand why they are worth upwards of $40K.


    10. A book club choice that I was loathe to give even one star to. (I was afraid if I left it blank you would think I just forgot and that this book would be up to my usual standards.) Do not read this book! Your time would be better spent picking lint off the carpet by hand, and that activity would probably be more interesting.


    11. The book was well written and the character development was good, but I didn't get really excited by any character. It came full circle in the end, but I was constantly hoping for more and it never came.


    12. This is a thinly veiled book about a Martha Stewart like person. There are some surprise personal growth and insight by the characters as they interact even with Emma (aka Martha). Good if you like dogs, interior decorating, and an ensemble of people who become like a family.


    13. Wow - I feel sorry for the world the author inhabits.Apparently, it is normal for everyone to be horrified by fat people and for almost everyone to have severe psychological problems. There is no other good explanation for his characters.I did love the puppy though! :^)


    14. A very fluffy read, but mildly entertaining. Not sure why she left the obese child subplot dangling in the wind. The book seemed to end abruptly and inconclusively. Not my favorite, but an okay beach read.


    15. I'm not sure this book even deserves one star. Felt like a poorly fictionalized account of Martha Stewart, which barely scatched the surface of the otherwise potentially interesting charcters in the book. Wouldn't recommend this one unless you are look for a fast, mindless read.


    16. Not much to say about this book. There was no real depth - the story line & characters were okay (the main character has a lot of Martha Stewart traits that have been portrayed in the media). Easy weekend read.


    17. I did enjoy the characters and the the stories told from each character's perspective. My one complaint is that things tied up neatly and quickly in the last chapter, and also I would have liked to have an epilogue, or know what happens to the characters going forward.


    18. I could only identify with one character from this book and that was 9 year old Gracie. Emma is ala Martha Stewart and the rest are shallowly developed characters.







    19. I actually really liked this book's a quick read and if you are a fan of Martha Stewart it is a fun read although the story is fairly predictable.


    20. A spoof on Martha Stewart’s life that I really didn't care for. It had a nice, happy ending wrapped up, but otherwise it was kind of depressing to me with superficial character development.


    21. Loved it! Ties in well w/ "An Object of Beauty." Art world in New York. Doesn't take itself too seriously. About how our relationships redeem us.



    22. A fluffy book, but fun to read, and you have to love that the object of desire is a Nakashima tablewithout a single picture.
