Hmm, that hief is none other than Father Time, and he isn ’ t often a great daddy depending on how you spent your time coming up the ranks, as these four women soon found out the hard way.Lucy has another dilemma.

Every time she goes down the street, she ’ s constantly looking over her shoulder to see if the man standing a little too close or walking by too swiftly is ‘ the ’ one who has been texting her.

Dangerous Age by Kelly Killoren Bensimon with Teresa DiFalco ( Women 's Fiction) takes everything past viewers thought they knew about our author and turns it back at us with a nowing, sly twist.

Kelly Killoren Bensimon took everything she understand about her life, her views of New York City and relationships ... and weaves an ntriguing ale.

It has true moments to savior and enough extras to keep readers guessing about what is hinted at, nodded to and out and out played from our past viewing guilty pleasures.But make no mistake, this book presents an insiders look at a section of Society which does exist.

Killoren takes us by the hand and introduces us to all the places we have read about, naming eateries, shops, galleries ....

The is to boost her branding and exposure.And then there is our teller of it all .... she was one time model who came to New York City from the Mid West and met he woma who changed her life .... an artist of the level all dream to be.

ears pass and like retellin of frog slowly being in water that is getting warmer and warmer ... not ealizing what is to come .... these 4 women seem to be on a collision course of some kind ... each with blinders to what the outcomes ould be .... We follow them as they work through ll of the hurtles; be it a hysterically, funny dinner for the would be producers of the Reality show or task of tracking down the illusive blogger everyone is talking about for the article which will save a magazine.

Bot of hese hings are tied together and slowly come to conclusion which touch all.This had insight and depth; a vision of what it is like to see life go by and be at hat point where you eel you are tottering ... on the brink of a possible downturn ... Is it real ... are things set and there is no way to redirect them .... It is an interesting time in women 's lives ...

Disclaimer ... I, like many, followed The Real Housewives shows from Bravo.

My guilty pleasure was the New York City Series ... and it really heated up during the second and third season.

She ha a tall, athletic, model, and mom who ad a history of society/artistic endeavors due to the life of modeling and her ex husband, fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon.Watching these seasons were like watching a car crash ...
