I loved The Devil Wears Prada; the book and the movie. For me, Emily Blunt playing Emily Charlton was perfection.
Sequels make me nervous especially when it’s something I enjoyed the first time around. The Wives (also titled When Life Gives You Lululemons) did not disappoint.
Emily Charlton is back. Now she’s her own boss working as a stylist/image consultant/problem solver to the stars. This time she’s in the suburbs with her oldest friend Miriam and Karolina; former supermodel and wife of a possible future present. Karolina’s life is turned upside down when she arrested for drink driving and publicly dumped. Emily is the woman determined to restore to her public image and take the man down!
There’s something about this trio of women that reminded me a little of The First Wives Club. It’s a fun and feisty read, perfect for summer. Emily is the brilliant bitchy, yet lovable, character we met in The Devil Wears Prada. There’s even an appearance from Miranda Priestly herself. What’s not to like?
Enjoy and do let me know what you think of The Wives.
