Publisher's Summary

Emily Charlton is back.

Best-selling author Lauren Weisberger returns with a deliciously entertaining new novel starring fan favourite from The Devil Wears Prada. Published in the UK as The Wives.

Don’t get mad. Get Emily.

Emily Charlton does not do the suburbs. A successful stylist and image consultant to Hollywood stars, she cut her teeth as assistant to legendary fashion editor Miranda Priestly in New York. But with social media-obsessed millennials stealing her clients, Emily needs to get back in the game - and fast.

She holes up at the home of her oldest friend, Miriam, in the upscale suburb of Greenwich. And when Miriam’s friend, model Karolina Hartwell, is publicly dumped by her husband, Graham, a senator with presidential ambitions, Emily scents the client of a lifetime.

It’s not just Karolina’s reputation that’s ruined. It’s her family. And Miriam and Emily are determined he won’t get away with it. First they’ll get Karolina’s son back. Then they’ll help her get her own back.

Because when life gives you lemons, buy tequila....

Loved it!

Was a great listen whilst in isolation #covid-19
Was sick of TV, Netflix, Internet etc.
So a book was the perfect thing to take my mind off doomsday.

A fun book

The story was interesting enough to keep me engaged. The ending was a bit predictable, but wrapped everything up neatly. The narrator did a good job in distinguishing between the characters.

Good read with all the feels

Great book. such stronger female characters. A lot better than the second book. only issue is that the character of Emily was British in the first two books and now she is American.

Not for me

I managed to get to chapter 7 and just couldn’t continue. Was going nowhere. Just not my cup of tea.

A bit tacky

I didn’t enjoy the story very much - a bit predictable . Finished it hoping it would improve
