Reviews

"The Idea of Him is a coming-of-age book for grown ups. It's fast-paced and intriguing, glamorous and real -- not only a great, great read but a tutorial in how to be your own best friend." -- Elin Hilderbrand, author of BEAUTIFUL DAY

"Holly Peterson has written a gripping, sophisticated story of high life suspense that kept me riveted till I'd finished. The Idea of Him is hugely enjoyable and vividly satisfying." -- Tina Brown of Tina Brown Live Media

"Holly Peterson's THE IDEA OF HIM is the perfect novel if you want to plunge into great dialogue, a twisting and unexpected plot, shady Wall Street schemes, betrayal, girl friends.. and sex. It is unputdownable." -- Lesley Stahl, CBS News 60 Minutes Anchor

"The idea of him is a deeply intriguing book filled with hilarious social satire and sexy longing. This book explores falling in love with the idea of someone rather than the person themselves...and how we cope with reality once we wake up!" -- Kelly Bensimon, Author and Television Personality

There are some hard truths about love, affairs, family and trust buried not so far beneath the surface ... yet it's a complete page-turner that speeds along briskly, with plenty of sex, crime, and scandal. Highly recommended, but be prepared to get as sucked in as I did. -- Heroes and Heartbreakers Blog
