What happens when two small-town girls’ lives collide in the Big Apple? Meet Lindsay and Charlie. Two smart and fabulous African American single girls who work hard and play hard, only to find their careers and love lives taking tragicomic turns.

Lindsay, a successful television executive, makes the “A” list for the hottest events in New York City. Charlie is devoted to the dream of becoming a screenwriter, and happily in love with her fiancé. And while Lindsay’s heart belongs to a handsome, high-powered video director, Charlie’s fiancé offers stability and family life – two kids from a previous relationship. When they meet it’s the classic case of each one thinking the other’s grass is greener. But the romance of Gotham starts to fade as reality shakes up both women’s worlds. They discover they are two sides of the same coin.

Funny, sweet, and endlessly charming, Cosmopolitan Girls is a winning concoction that will resonate with women everywhere.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delightful This is a great novel to which it was easy to relate. It is about two women who regain self and learn to overcome their problems. I found it to be very motivational and entertaining. For sure, this novel is worth a read and I look forward to more novels by these two authors.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unrealistic I don't know what the authors had in mind, being Black women themselves--but they painted an unrealisitc, stereotypical portrayal of sisters. We are trying to eradicate such stereotypes but this book continues it. It's not a step forward in Black Chick Lit, it's a step backwards. Both main characters have great careers, but leave everything at the mercy of their bosses (who are either male or white). They whine and complain when things don't go their way, instead of doing something for themselves. It's a pitiful account and I promptly returned my copy. It was neither inspiring or uplifting as a young Black woman. Shame on the authors.
