From Publishers Weekly:

Not even sultry settings like Cairo and New Orleans can put sizzle into McGehee's (Regret Not a Moment) promising but predictable story. As 1950s Egypt simmers toward revolution, beautiful Dominique Avallon, born to privilege in a wealthy expatriate French family, sets sail for the safety of America. The price of her ticket is an arranged marriage to wealthy businessman Anton Renard; but, once in San Francisco, Dominique discovers that her middle-aged intended is a fraud, whose "business" is marrying innocent young women for their fortunes. She flees to N.Y.C., a town for which she has just the right skills?Dominique can plan a swell party. Before long, she has a great job at a chic department store and finds a new beau, truly rich New Orleans shipping heir Clay Parker; they marry, have a daughter and Dominique continues to throw swell parties. Years pass. (How many is uncertain, for although the first two chapters are headlined with date and place, subsequent chapters leave readers digging for clues.) Clay leaves Dominique for a younger woman, and Dominique moves to D.C., where her future includes a sexy divorced senator and more swell parties. Although not in a class with Krantz or Taylor Bradford, McGehee provides sufficient entanglements to hold the interest of readers passionate for the genre.

From Library Journal:

Although in love with a married officer, Dominique marries a gentleman whom her mother has chosen. She follows him to America, but the marriage soon dissolves as Dominique realizes that her domineering husband married her for financial gain. Recognizing her own organizational skills, she turns a secretarial job into a challenging career. She marries Clay Parker, who convinces her to abandon her job. After 14 years, Clay abruptly walks out. Once again, Dominique must rely on her fortitude and reenter the working arena. The novel ends in the 1970s on an upbeat note as the possibility of happiness and achievement is within her grasp. This highly entertaining novel by the author of Regret Not a Moment (LJ 5/1/93) will be devoured by patrons who enjoy Belva Plain, Barbara Taylor Bradford, or Cynthia Freeman. Recommended for fiction collections.?Margaret Hanes, Sterling Heights P.L., Mich.
