When Life Gives You Lululemons
This one wins for best title of summer. After a long hiatus, Weisberger returns with her third installment in the Devil Wears Prada series, this time focusing on everyone’s favorite character, the snarky and entertaining Emily Charlton. Fifteen years after Devil, Emily works as an image consultant doing damage control for A-list celebrities: she’s a “fixer” in the vein of Olivia Pope. But neither her career nor her marriage are going particularly well, and Miranda Priestly even wants her to return to Runway. It’s time to shake things up, so when the call comes inviting her to move from L.A. back to the East Cost to save the reputation of a supermodel Senator’s wife, she can’t say no.
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.
