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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Scandal is Emily Charlton's stock-in-trade. As a former assistant to cutthroat fashion editor Miranda Priestly (both last seen in The Devil Wears Prada, 2003), Emily has had her own feet to the fire more than once, so she is singularly qualified to help A-listers such as J Lo, Jen, Ben, and Brad wiggle out of an awkward situation. Lately, though, she has been losing clients to a rival upstart and may be facing a career working with those a lot farther down the alphabet. Having traveled to Manhattan from her home in L.A. only to be fired yet again, Emily calls on her old friend Miriam, now ensconced in tony Greenwich, Connecticut, for some TLC. A onetime lawyer turned stay-at-home mom, Miriam may not be well suited to give career advice, but when another gal pal, Karolina Hartwell, gets unceremoniously dumped by her husband, a powerful senator with his eye on the White House, Miriam presses Emily into service to salvage Karolina's reputation. As always, Weisberger's timely social satire packs some bite along with the pop-culture froth. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The return of characters from Weisberger's most popular book will propel her latest to the top.--Haggas, Carol Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "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. (June) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
