-- Working in an arena of extravagance and wealth, Sarasota resident and international designer Deeia Topp is never surprised when clients ask for their agreement to remain hush hush. Heaven forbid she reveal their secret sex rooms, or the fact that they sleep in separate beds.
After twenty-five years of designing for ‘real’ housewives, Topp has written a witty, fast-paced novel that is a delightfully-
dishy peek behind the draperies of Greenwich’s Botoxed elite. Fictional character Chanda Lear, whose interior design firm is struggling to survive the economic downturn, is in pursuit of inner peace amid the chaos of her clients’ shallow world. Whether it’s a pro-athlete’
s affair that sparks a costly chain of events, the daily grind of meeting clients’ outrageous expectations, or the public scrutiny that follows her private parts being exposed in a British tabloid, Chanda’s experiences reflect the harsh realities of dealing with the wealthy in an amusing way.
Similar to Fielding’s Bridget Jones
and Weisberger’s The Devil Wears Prada
, Topp’s writing style captures Chanda’s drama-filled days with snarky dialogue, a relatable inner voice and an intensity that jumps off the page. Appealing to HGTV junkies, the voyeuristic nature of the those who fawn over A-listers, and the growing number of people seeking a deeper meaning in life, Complicated…by Design
is a shockingly blunt tale that takes a profound turn when Chanda’s spiritual growth teaches her that there is more to life than vanity and excess.Complicated…by Design
