Borrowed & Blue
Something Borrowed, Something Blue
Author: Emily Giffin
Two of Emily Giffin's most beloved novels tell one story of love and betrayal, friendship and forgiveness...
A hard-working attorney at a large Manhattan firm, Rachel White has always played by the rules, quietly accepting the sidekick role to Darcy in their lopsided friendship. But that changes the night that Rachel confesses her feelings to Darcy's fiancé, and is both horrified and thrilled to discover that he feels the same way. As the wedding date draws near, events spiral out of control, and Rachel knows she must make a choice between her heart and conscience. In doing so, she discovers that the lines between right and wrong can be blurry, endings aren't always neat, and sometimes you have to risk everything to be true to yourself.
Darcy Rhone has always been able to rely on a few things: her beauty and charm. Her fiancé Dex. Her best friend Rachel. She never needed anything or anyone else. Or so she thought until she uncovered the ultimate betrayal. Blaming everyone but herself, Darcy flees to London and attempts to re-create her glamorous life on a new continent. But to her dismay, she discovers that her tried-and-true tricks no longer apply--and that her luck has finally expired. It is only then that she can begin her journey towards redemption, forgiveness, and the true meaning of happily ever after.
