'Krantz has lost none of her energy. Scruples Two is extremely readable and great fun'" (The Sunday Times). From Beverly Hills to New York to Paris, Scruples Two gives us five more years in the luscious lives of the three people who run Scruples, the best fashion store in the world. See all Product description. I had been looking for Scruples for a few years after playing it at a friend's house. It's such a fun psychological game, as not only does it show what you think of the people you know but it also shows what they think you think of them. A hilarious game that will make any evening more interesting.

Billy asked rebelliously as she marched into his office, carrying a large shopping bag from Saks. I feel like a fool playing parlor games. I feel like a fool playing parlor games t for the others. Don’t tell me I’m the first? Actually, you’re a few minutes early.

Fifteen years later, Julia Ward Howe, a Boston poet, pacifist, suffragist, and author of the lyrics to the Battle Hymn of the Republic, organized a day encouraging mothers to rally for peace, since she believed they bore the loss of human life more harshly than anyone else. Born in New York in 1819, Howe was devoted to her family and committed to bettering the world. Five years later, the House of Representatives adopted a resolution calling for officials of the federal government to wear white carnations on Mother’s Day. By 1910, many clergymen and politicians had declared Mother’s Day a holiday.

Title: Scruples Two: Fifteen Years Later. Authors: Krantz, Judith. Condition: Used; Good. Only a single night's sleep seperates the lives of the characters in Scruples from this mesmerizing sequel.

Billy Ikehorn: Meet again the magnificent owner of Scruples. Billy is imperious and stubborn, a creature of rampant sexuality, too rich, too vulnerable and far, far too impulsive. The story begins on the day after Scruples ended, the day on which Billy's husband, producer Vito Orsini, won the Oscar for Best Picture. Spider Elliot, who reigns like a pasha at Scruples, is a man who adores women and can read their minds. He is more than tough enough to stand up to Billy. Valentine O'Neill is the brilliant young designer for Scruples. As alert as a vixen, hot tempered, and thoroughly lovable, she is as difficult to pin down as a mermaid. Now Billy, Spider and Valentine have explosive unfinished business. Watch the sparks fly as this irresistible story unfolds with an enchanting new cast of characters, including Gigi (Graziella Giovanna) Orsini, Vito's daughter from an early marriage. Gigi, with her charm, independence and wild sense of humour, changes the lives of everyone who knows her. It is Billy and Gigi who together dominate the new chapter in a story millions of readers wish had never ended.
Comments to eBook Scruples Two: Fifteen Years Later
Marelyne
????: three compelling main characters, intersecting plot lines, insights into the film industry and the world of high fashion.
????: a few too many minor characters, endlessly rambling descriptions that devolve into tedious tangents. The trademark trashy sex scenes would make even Lady Gaga blush.
???? That said, I couldn't put it down, always curious as to how Billy would orchestrate her next move in the world of wealth, power, & haute couture.

In a fit of nostalgia, I decided to buy a copy of this book and Princess Daisy, also by Judith Kranz. I had enjoyed both books when I was in college, and I wanted to see how well they stood up to the years. Better than I did, I have to admit. They are still pure fantasy, wish fulfillment, and happy endings rolled up into one. They remind me of the glitzy, glamorous movies that were popular during the depression. Sometimes I need something to transport me out of my mundane existence into the realm of rich, powerful, beautiful people for a few hours. These books definitely fill the bill. Escapist? You bet, and of the very best vintage. Am I tempted to read any more? Not so much, but the fluff was fun while it lasted.

I read this book, and the two that followed, many decades ago. As I re-read Scruples, I was amazed to find the story still enthralled me. The character development, the entangled interactions, the fast-paced storyline, the sex...all gifted me with several nights of enjoyable reading. The only downside of this ebook is the more numerous than usual typos, misspellings, and even deleted phrases encountered while reading.

I have read this book over and over again and it still hasn't lost it's charm. Judith Krantz writes stories about bold, determined women that make their own rules. Perfect to kick back with and relax as you cheer the characters on.

I really enjoyed #2. It provides readers the ability to follow all the key characters as their lives unfold and intertwine. I loved discovering those new to the story as they take their well deserved places in the book and our hearts.

I discovered Judith Krantz' books many, many years ago. I have all of them. I just bought this Kindle book so I'd have it on the Kindle. I've always wished I could write like her with that air of insouciance; love it.

Thank you for prompt service. I am enjoying reading part 2 of Scruples. I have the movie Scruples and enjoyed it.
"Scruples" was my final beach read for the summer of 2007. Does that mean I won't be reading anymore light fiction for the rest of the year? No, it just means that summer is over. I've never been deeply fascinated by the lives of the wealthy, but "Scruples" makes it look like a lot of fun.

Judith Krantz's novel is almost thirty years old now, (this was one of the books that kids in the 70s and 80s would sneak peeks at while adults weren't looking) so how does it hold up? Very, very well. I admit I was a little reluctant when I started the book because I initially found Krantz's style overly wordy, but once I got into it I was won over and Krantz held my attention the entire time.

And I wasn't just a passive reader; to my surprise, I learned things too. The sections describing Paris couture are interesting and I liked how Krantz laid out the entire process without once making it boring. Krantz (whose husband was a producer) also goes in-depth into Hollywood and deglamorizes the film industry so that we, along with Billy, are treated to the tediousness of the on-location process. Let's not forget the process of building up "Scruples" which is written with such flair that the excitement is infectious.

The characters in the novel are well developed, though I tended to enjoy the supporting characters more than the main ones. I had a hard time accepting that Billy was only in her mid-thirties. She seemed much older but maybe that was the point. I enjoyed Spider and Valentine at first but neither came alive so that by the end of the book, my interest in them had waned. I think this is because Krantz spends so much time on the movie business toward the end that Spider and Valentine fall into the background. When they re-emerge, I had discovered characters like Dolly Moon and Vito whom I enjoyed a lot more.

Great fun, great read.
