Novels with Nell: The Darlings

Happy Valentine's Day! What a perfect day for a Novels with Nell for anyone looking to make plans for the evening. I was just telling my roommate how I wished that I had more time to read all of the books that have made their way to my Amazon cart. If you're looking for a cozy Wednesday night in, Nell has a new book recommendation for us. 

I just ordered and am looking forward to starting one of her previous recommendations, The Overachievers. It sounded interesting and would work well for a book review project I have to do for one of my graduate classes. I plan to start it today, but I also packed another book, Behind Closed Doors, for my flight this afternoon and I think we can both guess which I'll pick up first.

For all the Gossip Girl fans out there, this book is for you! New York City, a high powered family, and scandal. My only issue was that I don’t know a lot about investment firms, hedge funds, and the financial world, so parts of the book covering that were lost on me. But I still really enjoyed the book so you don’t have to work on Wall Street to get into it. With the chapters rotating through different characters’ perspectives, you learn something new and piece the story together with each section. A page turner for sure!

“A sophisticated page-turner about a wealthy New York family embroiled in a financial scandal with cataclysmic consequences.

Now that he's married to Merrill Darling, daughter of billionaire financier Carter Darling, attorney Paul Ross has grown accustomed to New York society and all of its luxuries: a Park Avenue apartment, weekends in the Hamptons, bespoke suits. When Paul loses his job, Carter offers him the chance to head the legal team at his hedge fund. Thrilled with his good fortune in the midst of the worst financial downturn since the Great Depression, Paul accepts the position.
But Paul's luck is about to shift: a tragic event catapults the Darling family into the media spotlight, a regulatory investigation, and a red-hot scandal with enormous implications for everyone involved. Suddenly, Paul must decide where his loyalties lie-will he save himself while betraying his wife and in-laws or protect the family business at all costs?
Cristina Alger's glittering debut novel interweaves the narratives of the Darling family, two eager SEC attorneys, and a team of journalists all racing to uncover-or cover up-the truth. With echoes of a fictional Too Big to Fail and the novels of Dominick Dunne, The Darlings offers an irresistible glimpse into the highest echelons of New York society-a world seldom seen by outsiders-and a fast-paced thriller of epic proportions.”


  1. I hate to admit but I really enjoyed Gossip Girl (the show, at least), so I might actually really enjoy this book. Thanks for the recommendation, Nell! ❤️❤️
