KIRKUS REVIEW

A knowing way in the world of fashion, men and women and women versus men, and a slick sneak-in for a bit of politics -- this should cater to an undemanding feminine audience. For Tansy Delafield, from Ohio, is successful in public relations; she loves, and is jilted by a war hero, Andy Hollister; she never realized that Cass Hanophy, now a successful world correspondent, truly loved her; and she is a push-over for Langdon Bishop who is at his most courageous in a night club fire. She is unsuspecting when tycoon Josh T. Dowe, opinion and man molder, makes use of Bishop, when her marriage to Bishop is underwritten by Josh, and when, Bishop, elevated to Secretary of the Interior, is Josh's flunky. When she is left to stand trial for Josh's murder and Bishop chickens, - with her acquittal -- on Cass' testimony -- she vanishes, but Cass finds her -- and so does true love. This is glib, shiny -- and shallow.
