New York Times bestselling author Lauren Weisberger returns with a novel starring one of her favorite characters from The Devil Wears Prada—Emily Charlton, first assistant to Miranda Priestly, now a highly successful image consultant who’s just landed the client of a lifetime.
Welcome to Greenwich, CT, where the lawns and the women are perfectly manicured, the Tito’s and sodas are extra strong, and everyone has something to say about the infamous new neighbor.
Let’s be clear: Emily Charlton, Miranda Priestly’s ex-assistant, does not do the suburbs. She’s working in Hollywood as an image consultant to the stars, but recently, Emily’s lost a few clients. She’s hopeless with social media. The new guard is nipping at her heels. She needs a big opportunity, and she needs it now.
Karolina Hartwell is as A-list as they come. She’s the former face of L’Oreal. A mega-supermodel recognized the world over. And now, the gorgeous wife of the newly elected senator from New York, Graham, who also has his eye on the presidency. It’s all very Kennedy-esque, right down to the public philandering and Karolina’s arrest for a DUI—with a Suburban full of other people’s children.
Miriam is the link between them. Until recently she was a partner at one of Manhattan’s most prestigious law firms. But when Miriam moves to Greenwich and takes time off to spend with her children, she never could have predicted that being stay-at-home mom in an uber-wealthy town could have more pitfalls than a stressful legal career.
Emily, Karolina, and Miriam make an unlikely trio, but they desperately need each other. Together, they’ll navigate the social landmines of life in America’s favorite suburb on steroids, revealing the truths—and the lies—that simmer just below the glittering surface. With her signature biting style, Lauren Weisberger offers a dazzling look into another sexy, over-the-top world, where nothing is as it appears.
My Book Review
—>Can we PLEASE get this book made into a movie?!?!?! And a book about Alistair would be fabulous! THAT’s ALL
I just LOVE that we get a book about EMILY!!! She is my favorite in THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA and I just love her wit and frankness! I feel that this GIF just let’s us revisit her personality 😉
I immediately understood the title and the book as I live in an upper class suburbia where all the moms (including myself) are typically found in our Lululemons! BUT this book delves deeper into mommy hood in one of the most upper crust societies in America and what happens to a scorned and scandalized housewife…
This video was on repeat in my head of women wearing their Active Wear everywhere!
I love a juicy political scandal and once I hit the third or fourth chapter the book would not leave my hands! Well my kindle to be politically correct. If you are a fan of The Devil Wears Prada book and/or movie then you will thoroughly enjoy this book. Its full of humor, wit, mommy hood, married without children, suburbia, the importance of ‘mommy juice’, and FRIENDSHIP! I really enjoyed this book and all the characters.
