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.

real housewives of Connecticut

A ridiculous (and fluffy AF book) about a bunch of bored, verrrry privileged rich white women, but it’s entertaining and fun. Best suited for fans of the show Desperate Housewives and Bravo reality shows who want a "beach read" and to laugh. Very predictable but that it works here, making the woven stories more juicy and satisfying. Barely resembles original book/movie -- it is a total stand alone.

Laura Benanti

What a fantastic job she did with all the characters - I could picture them in my head and even laughed while I was driving.

So.Much.Fun

I loved this book. The characters are cleverly built; the storylines are not too dramatic but are interesting to follow; and the narrator was perfect! It's a feel-good book, will lift your mood more than a "double or triple" spin class (and you might care less about lifting other parts, too).

Satisfying Sequel / Phenomenal Narrator

The story arc is as entertaining as it is predictable and I expected nothing less from the author who always has her finger on the pulse of what’s “now”. What wasn’t expected however was the narrator, I found myself in awe of her talent.

Don’t waste your time

I thought this would be as entertaining as the Devil Wears Prada, but sadly, no. Characters are vapid and story weak.

Pretty good read.

I would have loved if the narrator read Emily's part in a British accent. Oh how I miss Emily Blunt. It was a pretty good read but the first two were amazing.
