The Vogue contributor’s new chick-lit murder mystery takes place at Oxford in the mid-1980s. Her first book since 2005’s “The Debutante Divorcee,” she recently said she wanted to write “something really, really fun to read, but that’s intelligent and witty. There’s a lot in this book that is romanticized, and it is quite nice to get a break from reality. It’s like ‘La La Land. All these things bring a little bit of joy to the world.”
