Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling 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 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 Los Angeles with her husband, working most recently 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.

Until eight weeks ago, Karolina was also the wife of an up-and-coming hotshot senator from New York. On the heels of her husband's very public philandering, Karolina finds herself arrested for drunk driving - with a Suburban full of other people's children. Her only true friend is Miriam, a hotshot New York City attorney turned stay-at-home-mom who lives in tiny Greenwich - conveniently close to Karolina and Graham's summer "cottage".

Miriam, Emily, and Karolina make an unlikely trio, but they need each other. Badly. Together, they'll navigate the social landmines of the suburbs on the path to reinvention - unearthing truths that were stirring below the surface all along, and getting a bit of revenge along the way. With her signature biting, dazzling style, Lauren Weisberger offers a glittering look into a sexy, over-the-top world like no one else can.

Great reader! The acting was the best I've heard!

Interesting culturally but at times it got a bit much for me with the drugs, sex, etc. I like to know what's going on but could people really this shallow? I understand the humor and still gave it a "4" overall!

JUST.UTTERLY.STUPID.

If you are looking for a way to waste 10 hours on a ridiculous, predictable and lame book, order this.

Laugh fest. Thoroughly entertaining.

I truly can’t recall a time I finished a book in a week. In general, I do not finish books. Granted, I was on vacation.
I often get bored if the story loses my interest at any point. This book is AMAZING! I took time to think and plan when I could listen throughout my day. Definitely not something I typically do. I even asked my boyfriend if we could play it in the car. It was worth a shot. Ha!

Hooray! Hooray! Miranda Saves the Day!!!

Lauren does it again in this installment of “The Story of Our Lives”. We, who’ve grown & grown up through the era of LL Cool J, Elsa Klensch, Andre Leon Talley and Wolfgang Puck truly enjoy this tale of life and Lulu Lemons.

Haven’t we all wanted to live and learn and grow through life’s continuum. No stagnancy here. It’s good to see Andrea, Em, new friends, and even Miranda progress through this series.

Goodness wins! Love triumphs! Our favorite brands and new ones are lauded. Lessons are learned. Children are blessings and not the #deathsentence most singles feel they are.

I’m feeling #summertimefine after this one.

Thanks Lauren! Thanks Audible!
