When Catherine Lambert, an effortlessly chic Parisian lawyer, receives an offer to transfer to the New York office of her prestigious firm, she unhesitatingly accepts. A dedicated follower of fashion and everything stylish, she is determined to conquer the high-flying world of Manhattan law -- and love. Catherine's dreams of glamour fizzle quickly, however, when she is faced with the hard realities of her profession. The pressure of billable hours, the incessant demands of her impossible bosses, the conspiracies of two malicious secretaries and the advances of the lecherous client prompt her to question her career choice. But then she meets Jeffrey Richardson, a powerful client, and her New York life takes on the romance she'd hoped it would -- until an unexpected request forces Catherine to re-evaluate the exclusive world she's chosen for herself.

With its insider's perspective on the dirty deals and intrigue that have darkened Wall Street's reputation, J'adore New York is a bright and funny take on the lives and laws of New York's most powerful players.

A trashy novel at its best. Follow a lawyer as she adapts to New York life after living in Paris.

Picked from the pile by none other than Vogue (US) editors as an appealing au courant read, this little meringue is worth the time invested ... if you appreciate fashion, glamour & blingy product placement. Parisian corporate lawyer Catherine Lambert moves to New York to try her hand at high finance and high romance in the city that never sleeps. Pleasantly written, and fun.

A lovely light read about what it takes to be a successful young lawyer in New York.
