Meet Emmy, Leigh, and Adriana. Best friends since college, each is 20-something (okay, almost 30) and has seen her share of career foils and romantic foibles in the world's greatest city: New York. Having been friends for more than a decade, they know that they all need a change.
On Valentine's Day, they are each alone for one reason or another. At dinner together, the trio makes a pact. Within one year, each woman will change the thing that most challenges her.
For Emmy, good Emmy, whose boyfriend of five years just left her for a personal trainer, it will be to find romance - or a fling - in every foreign country she visits (and given her job as a secret shopper for high-end resorts, she goes to a lot of foreign countries).
For Leigh, a book editor, her goal is to get on the other side of the typewriter and write her own book - much to the dismay of her boyfriend, who is a Very Public Figure.
And for commitment-phobic, Daddy's little rich-girl Adriana (she can't hold a job, or a boyfriend, unless he's married and therefore erratic and unattainable), her goal is to have an engagement ring and a house in Scarsdale.
Each woman starts the first day of the year of reckoning with the best of intentions - which is exactly why the pact goes immediately and exceptionally awry.
Filled with the delicious insider details of a celebrity-level (or celebrity-wannabe) lifestyle, Chasing Harry Winston brings listeners once again into the heart of an elite world, where friendships will be tested to the point of breaking.
Let the games begin.
