Fendi, Christian Louboutin, Alex Perry, Jimmy Choo: with friends like these, who needs fidelity?
Jade Jaeger has it all. Or so she thinks. When she vows 'for richer or poorer' to her millionaire entrepreneur boyfriend, she is swept away in a cloud of Porsche smoke and enters the exclusive ASH world- that of Affluent, Suburban Housewives, who while their time away with cocaine and canapés, as their spoilt children are raised by nervous nannies.
But all that glitters ain't necessarily gold and when her husband's eye starts wandering, Jade is one yummy mummy who won't take it lying down. As the cracks begin to show Jade is faced with a most modern dilemma: Overlook the betrayals and keep her luxurious lifestyle? Or start over, alone and broke, but with dignity.
All That Shimmers is a deliciously explosive account of the inner working of Australia's A-List, written by the strong and sassy Jade Jaeger: author, mother of two and ex-wife of the millionaire behind the Pubboy-brand.
With her Jimmy Choos firmly planted on the ground, and clutching her 44-point 'what I want in a man' list, Jade weighs up her own happiness against the life to which she is accustomed, all with good humour and a little bit of raunch...
