[Read by Kristin Kalbli]

For a small-town girl with big-city dreams, there is no address more glamorous than New York's Barbizon Hotel. Laura, a patrician beauty from Smith, arrives to work at Mademoiselle for the summer. Her hopelessly romantic roommate Dolly comes from a working-class upstate town to attend secretarial school. Vivian, a brash British bombshell with a disregard for the hotel's rules, rounds out the trio of friends. Together, the girls embark on a journey of discovery that will take them from the penthouse apartments of Park Avenue to the Beat scene of Greenwich Village to Atlantic City's Steel Pier -- and into the arms of very different men who will alter their lives forever.

"Reading Searching for Grace Kelly is like watching your favorite old Hollywood movie, filled with colorful characters, funny moments, tender scenes, and plenty of intrigue." John Searles, author of Help for the Haunted
Callahan recreates the dazzle of New York in the 1950s, but he also captures something much more subtle and elusive: the feeling of the era, and the sense of how people thought about the world and each other. It's a pitch-perfect novel." Roberta Rich, author of Midwife of Venice
