I had heard about this series for a while, but it was never available at the library. Found it last week and I have been happily reading.The Luxe is set in Manhattan during the turn of the century. The main character Elizabeth Holland lives a life of luxury, with beautiful clothes, servants, parties, etc. Her family finances change when her father dies. Elizabeth becomes obligated to marry for money, not love. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read the next book in the series.
