Review of The Wives by Lauren Weisberger.

This book is the third instalment in The Devil Wears Prada series. Although I’ve watched The Devil Wears Prada movie, I haven’t read any of the books prior to this one. I was a little worried I wouldn’t be able to get into the story or keep up with what was going on with any of the characters.

My worry was unfounded, the story flowed beautifully and the characters weren’t complicated at all.

This particular book is set in Greenwich, Connecticut, and revolves around Emily, Miriam, and Karolina.

Emily turns up in Manhattan during the New Year festivities with the hope of saving the career of a celeb gone bad. This particular bad boy shuns her assistance, preferring the help of a rival of Emily.

Emily decides to spend some time with Miriam and it’s whilst at her house that she gets drawn into helping Karolina fight a DUI that she didn’t even commit, but her politician husband and his would-be new wife are stopping at nothing to get rid of Karolina.

This story is hilarious and full of scandal. It is told from the perspective of all three women and each different point of view reflects upon the issues these women are facing, showing us readers that even the rich and famous have issues and hang-ups just like the rest of us.

I absolutely loved Thais book and highly recommend it.
