Splendor by Anna Godbersen

Front Flap: As spring turns into summer, Elizabeth relishes her new role as a young wife, while her sister Diana, searches for adventure abroad. But when a surprising clue about their father's death comes to light, the Holland girls wonder as what cost a life of splendor comes. Carolina Broad, society's newest darling, fans a flame from her past, oblivious to how it might burn her future. Penelope Schoonmaker is finally Manhattan royalty- but when a real prince visits the city, she covets a title that comes with a crown. Her husband, Henry, bravely went to war, only to discover that his father's rule extends well beyond New York's shores and that fighting for love may prove a losing battle. In the dramatic conclusion to the bestselling Luxe series, New York's most dazzling socialites chase dreams, cling to promises, and tempt fate. As society watches what will become of the city's oldest families and newest fortunes, one question remains: Will its stars fade away or will they shine ever brighter? Very sad that the books are over! I was gonna say it sounded like it the last few pages, because I don't read the summaries until I finish the book so now it plainly says it's the conclusion! Very sad, but I think it was really amazing and successful so four is a good number. I thought that Henry and Diana would for sure get together, but in the end she picked to make herself happy first over anothers, and that must have taken some serious guts! I think it was a good idea to leave New York though because of all that gossiping and scandal and crap jeez. Thank goodness I don't have to worry about all of that! And Elizabeth ended up being happy, I'm glad because she deserves it. I can't believe Mr. Snowden actually had Will killed! That was so sad when it happened, and to know that your new husband killed your former one because of money! And your father too! Wow, good thing he got out the picture and in came Teddy. For some reason he reminds me of that guy in Little Women, I think it's Laurie? But yeah, and too bad for Penelope, but I guess her and Henry stay together, but not in love. I'm also glad I marry for whom I love, not what looks right with whoever's family and stuff. But I'll miss the books, I might just buy them all though since I don't have any, just got them from the library and borrowed from people or whatever.
