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.

Could not put this books down! I finished it in one day. It kept me intrigued throughout, from the first page through the last, and I could never predict what was going to happen next. Each chapter had a new shocking twist which made me enjoy it that much more that I couldn’t see anything coming! It definitely would have made a great beach read but it was a terrific snow day read as well.

Revenge is sweet, especially when it is delivered by Miranda Priestly.

The first two pages were so mired in cliche I couldn't get past them. Pass.

Great book, bringing together three women in a world of drama. Definitely a must-read if you are compelled by dramatic plots.

East Coast vibe. Trendy but "eye-rolling" read about 3 women and marriage; it has extra-marital affairs, children, careers, a bit of drugs and sex thrown in.

There were some quirky, funny moments. But overall, a waste of my time and I felt like I lost some brain cells along the way. In my opinion, it was very shallow and the story was flat.
