In the tradition of The Emperor’s Children and The House of Mirth,the forgotten granddaughter of one of New York’s wealthiest men is reunited with her family just as she comes of age—and once she’s had a glimpse of their glittering world, she refuses to let it go without a fight.

When Laila Lawrence becomes an orphan at twenty-three, the sudden loss unexpectedly introduces her to three glamorous cousins from New York who show up unannounced at her mother’s funeral. The three siblings are scions of the wealthy family from which Laila’s father had been estranged long before his own untimely demise ten years before.

Two years later, Laila has left behind her quiet life in Grosse Point, Michigan to move to New York City, landing her smack in the middle of her cousins’ decadent world. As the truth about why Laila’s parents became estranged from the family patriarch becomes clear, Laila grows ever more resolved to claim what’s rightfully hers. Caught between longing for the love of her family and her relentless pursuit of the lifestyle she feels she was unfairly denied, Laila finds herself reawakening a long dead family scandal—not to mention setting off several new ones—as she becomes further enmeshed in the lives and love affairs of her cousins. But will Laila ever, truly, belong in their world? Sly and sexy, She Regrets Nothing is a sharply observed and utterly seductive tale about family, fortune, and fate—and the dark side of wealth.


Andrea Dunlop has become one of my auto-buy authors, and in her latest novel She Regrets Nothing, Dunlop does not disappoint. The reader follows along as Laila Lawrence is reunited with the wealthy side of her family. And not just a little wealthy, these people know how to spend money and have a lot of it to spend. They quickly take Laila under their wing in NYC and begin to teach her what its like to be wealthy. 

She Regrets Nothing is fast paced and extremely well written. Dunlop has a talent for keeping the reader on the edge of their seat, and I constantly felt the slight build up in her writing and knew that eventually something awful or amazing was going to happen. I loved the characters in this novel and felt that each of them were important to the plot and particularly complex. 

In summary, She Regrets Nothing is a gorgeous novel about deceit, greed, and what some will do for the love of money. I absolutely loved this novel and would highly recommend it! Thank you to Atria Books, NetGalley, Andrea Dunlop, and Booksparks for sending a novel in exchange for an honest review. 

Rating 4/5
