Splendor by Anna Godbersen


The final book of The Luxe series finds Diana and Henry still scrambling to find each other amid the whispers of New York society. Elizabeth, though comfortably married to Mr. Cairns, discovers that her supportive husband may not be all he appears to be. However, untangling the truth of her new life may prove deadly. Carolina, having risen from a servant girl to the toast of society, seems to be getting everything she wants — including the prestigious hand of an established New York heir. And Penelope is still grappling with the shards of her ruined marriage. Godbersen’s finale to the series ties up all loose ends in a rather satisfying manner, with enough surprise to keep you guessing until the end.

Being done with this series feels…pretty good! Don’t get me wrong, I loved this ending and I thought the series was great, but, by then end, I was ready to be done. I honestly feel like this book should be the third and last book in the series. After everything that happened in his book (and there’s a ton of twists!), the third book felt unnecessary. Definitely finish the series out if you’ve started it — the plot developments and story endings in this book are worth it! But if you’re thinking about skipping the third book, you maybe can.
