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.

  • Somewhat entertaining, but kind of bland

    This book was ok. I read it quickly, but the characters lacked substance. It bugged me how much weight played into their happiness- even the girl who shouldn’t care, Miriam, does.
  • Woo Hoo The Devil is Back

    I received an ARC of this book to read from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. When Life Gives You Lululemons is by Lauren Weisberger and is a follow up to The Devil Wears Prada and yes Miranda Priestly does make an appearance in this book. It can be read as a stand-alone but I think you would enjoy this book more if you had read The Devil Wears Prada. Emily Charlton is concerned as her image consultant business is taking hits from a new young competitor and while she is secure in her marriage having her husband in Hong Kong for several months is taking its toll. Karolina Hartwell has just had her entire life turned upside down and being arrested for a DUI she did not commit is just the tip of the iceberg. Miriam Kagan, Emily’s oldest friend has given up her high powered law career to be a stay at home parent in Greenwich and navigating this new world has her wondering about her choices. These three women come together to support each other in moments of crisis and joy and you will laugh and cry right along with them. I resented having to put this book down for those fun things like laundry, dishes and work, and think this is the book that should be at the top of your summer reading list.
