Staff Reviews

New York City is filled with opportunities for single girls like Alice Weiss.  After she leaves her small Midwestern town, she chases her big city dreams, and unexpectedly lands the job of a lifetime working for Helen Gurley Brown. Helen is the first female Editor-in-Chief of a then failing Cosmopolitan magazine. Nothing could have prepared Alice for the world she would enter.

I was captivated by the story of Alice and Helen. With a blend of historical fiction built around historical fact, Renee Rosen crafted a compelling story.

This is an incredible novel!


— Amy Handley


Mad Men meets The Devil Wears Prada, ' which might as well be saying 'put me in your cart immediately.'"--PopSugar
It's 1965 and Cosmopolitan magazine's brazen new editor in chief--Helen Gurley Brown--shocks America and saves a dying publication by daring to talk to women about all things off-limits...

New York City is filled with opportunities for single girls like Alice Weiss, who leaves her small Midwestern town to chase her big-city dreams and unexpectedly lands a job working for the first female editor in chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, Helen Gurley Brown.

For Alice, who wants to be a photographer, it seems like the perfect foot in the door, but nothing could have prepared her for the world she enters. Editors and writers resign on the spot, refusing to work for the woman who wrote the scandalous bestseller Sex and the Single Girl, and confidential memos, article ideas, and cover designs keep finding their way into the wrong hands. When someone tries to pull Alice into a scheme to sabotage her boss, she is more determined than ever to help Helen succeed.

While pressure mounts at the magazine, Alice struggles not to lose sight of her own dreams as she's swept up into a glamorous world of five-star dinners, lavish parties, and men who are certainly no good. Because if Helen Gurley Brown has taught her anything, it's that a woman can demand to have it all.
