HE SET HER UP. THEY'LL BRING HIM DOWN.
Welcome to Greenwich, Connecticut, 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 does not do the suburbs. After leaving Miranda Priestly, she's been 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.

When Karolina Hartwell, a gorgeous former supermodel, is arrested for a DUI, her fall from grace is merciless. Her senator-husband leaves her, her Beltway friends disappear, and the tabloids pounce.

In Karolina, Emily finds her comeback opportunity. But she quickly learns Greenwich is a world apart and that this comeback needs a team approach.

So it is that Emily, the scorned Karolina, and their mutual friend Miriam, a powerful attorney turned stay-at-home suburban mom, band together to not only navigate the social land mines of suburban Greenwich but win back the hearts of the American public. Along the way, an indispensable ally emerges in one Miranda Priestly.

With her signature wit, Lauren Weisberger offers an alluring look into a sexy, over-the-top world—and proves it's style and substance together that gets the job done.

    Weisberger (The Singles Game, 2016, etc.) gives rich-lit fans a second spinoff of her best-known novel, The Devil Wears Prada, shifting her lens from long-suffering Andrea Sachs to Emily Charlton, the snippy fashionista who worked as top assistant to Runway magazine's hellish editor, Miranda Priestly.A decade after leaving Runway, Emily has successfully reinvented herself as a celebrity stylist and image consultant specializing in crisis management. But it's her own career that's in jeopardy when a hotshot rival starts luring away Emily's Hollywood clients with millennial social media superpowers. Emily needs a big win or she may as well pack it up and head back to Runway. Thankfully, her childhood friend Miriam Kagan has just the gig for her. Miriam recently moved to tony Greenwich, Connecticut, where former supermodel and current senator's wife Karolina Hartwell is hiding out after a brush with the law. Something about Karolina's DUI arrest just doesn't add up, though. Miriam dusts off her Harvard law degree and Emily kicks into high gear, discovering their friend Karolina has been set up by her husband, an ambitious politician with his eye on the White House. Now the three friends must take him down. Having a kick-ass girl posse is not only great fun, but essential for survival in this town filled with moms obsessed with SoulCycle, trophy kids, and plastic surgery--including having their vaginas "custom fit" for their husbands. In one scene, a designer-clad mom hosts a sex-toy party where the constant drumbeat is fear that husbands will abandon wives who aren't smokin' hot and sexually available at all times. (Every sex toy is discussed in terms of how much pleasure it will bring the men.) Emily, Miriam, and Karolina pose a refreshing contrast to the Greenwich moms who all seem to be swimming in the extremely shallow end of the pool.With rich people behaving scandalously on every page, this lemon is juicy and delicious.

    Weisberger casts a gimlet eye on affluent suburbia in her latest A Devil Wears Prada novel, featuring former Runway magazine assistant Emily Charlton, now an image consultant whose career is on a downslide. Thanks to her summer camp friend Miriam (a high-powered Manhattan lawyer turned stay-at-home mom in Greenwich, Conn.), Emily is connected to a new neighbor, former fashion model Karolina Hartwell, whose husband is a senator entertaining a presidential bid. Karolina has been all over the tabloids for a DUI while her stepson and some of his friends were in her car. The charge is suspect because she wasn’t drunk and even begged for a Breathalyzer test she was never given. Weisberger spotlights marital fidelity as Karolina’s husband is all over the society pages accompanied by the president’s glamorous daughter, who could further his career; Miriam likewise suspects her own husband is cheating. Throughout, Weisberger gleefully lampoons a world where buff moms decked out in athleisure wear obsess over child birthday party one-upmanship and “vaginal rejuvenation” surgery. A cameo from the imperious and memorable Runway fashion mag boss Miranda Priestly adds extra spice to this page-turning beach read. It’s a treat for Weisberger’s fans.
