Welcome to Greenwich, CT, where the lawns are manicured, the Long Island iced teas are extra strong, and heads turn when an infamous new neighbor arrives for an extended long weekend. After Emily Charlton left Miranda Priestly and Runway magazine, she migrated to L.A with her husband, working as an image consultant to the stars. But recently Emily's lost a few clients. She's struggling. When the opportunity arrives to reinvent and relaunch a gorgeous former model whose mugshot graces the cover of the New York Post, Emily jumps at the chance. Relaunching Karolina is the big leagues.

This was a great, fun listen. It's The Real Housewives meets The Devil Wears Prada in one chick lit listen.

One would think that with Jen Lancaster’s impressive list of bestselling self-improvement memoirs that she would have it all together by now. One would be wrong. Jen’s still a little rough around the edges. Suffice it to say, she’s no Martha Stewart. And that is exactly why Jen is going to Martha up and live her life according to the advice of America’s overachieving older sister - the woman who turns lemons into lavender-infused lemonade.

I bought this book to read as a means of relaxation, like a cookie before dinner, a treat. As it turns out it was so much more. I really enjoyed listening to the author read her own work and I was surprised at the depth in this book. This was my first Jen Lancaster memoir, I’ve since gone on to read all of her memoirs. This was a great first introduction to Jen Lancaster‘s writings.
