"Welcome to Greenwich, CT, 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, Miranda Priestly's ex-assistant, does not do the suburbs. She's 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. Karolina Hartwell is as A-list as they come. She's the former face of L'Oreal. A mega-supermodel recognized the world over. And now, the gorgeous wife of the newly elected senator from New York, Graham, who also has his eye on the presidency. It's all very Kennedy-esque, right down to the public philandering and Karolina's arrest for a DUI--with a Suburban full of other people's children. Miriam is the link between them. Until recently she was a partner at one of Manhattan's most prestigious law firms. But when Miriam moves to Greenwich and takes time off to spend with her children, she never could have predicted that being stay-at-home mom in an uber-wealthy town could have more pitfalls than a stressful legal career. Emily, Karolina, and Miriam make an unlikely trio, but they desperately need each other. Together, they'll navigate the social landmines of life in America's favorite suburb on steroids, revealing the truths--and the lies--that simmer just below the glittering surface."-- Provided by publisher.

What happens when Emily from Devil Wears Prada lands in Connecticut suburbia - a place just as toxic and Machiavellian as the office of Runway magazine!

I would be a hypocrite if I were to give this book a bad review after reading it in one sitting. However, there wasn't much in it except for detailed descriptions of rich women's lives in the Greenwich suburb of Connecticut. There is an attempt to bring in a story by introducing Karolina Hartwell into the mix and getting her arrested for DUI but there's not enough of it to make the book spicier. All in all easy reading.

Definitely another Lauren Weisberger hit. Well written, fast paced story of re-empowering formerly powerful women who are now mothers.

Emily Charlton of Devil Wears Prada fame is back, but now she's her own boss.

Emily's LA based image consulting business works for Miles' Hong Kong based job but when a NY based star calls Emily is on the next plane but finding herself in Greenwich CT - aka the Burbs. Emily's bunking at Miriam Kagan's home for a few days - that quickly becomes three weeks. When their mutual friend, retired high fashion model Karolina Hartwell, needs Miriam's lawyer skills and Emily's image control skills life takes on a new pace.
The touching incidents of motherhood are sneakily buried in the fast paced humor that Lauren Weisberger does so well.

Miranda Priestly of Runway appears here and watching Emily's interactions was top notch.

A lot goes on in this burb - imagine an hookah party on a Monday night! Left me smiling and cheering for our three friends, Emily, Miriam, & Lina.

I volunteered to read an ARC through Net Galley. I loved it!
