When Life Gives You Lululemons

book | Fiction | Jun 2018
US & Canada → Simon & Schuster (Ed. Marysue Rucci)

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. With her signature biting style, Lauren Weisberger offers a dazzling look into another sexy, over-the-top world, where nothing is as it appears.

This work is published under the title The Wives in the UK.

Reviews

Female solidarity is at the heart of this delicious page-turner. Entertaining, sexy and laugh out loud funny When Life Gives You... is sure to be the beach-read of 2018.

Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen, best-selling authors of The Wife Between Us

When Life Gives You Lululemons is a delicious sequel toThe Devil Wears Prada. [It] reads like “The Real Housewives of Greenwich,” a reality show that doesn’t exist, but should… underneath the shiny surface, both “Lululemons” and “Prada” are exploring what it’s like to be a woman buffeted by conflicting messages about career, relationships and motherhood. I’m hoping that “When Life Gives You Lululemons” gets made into a movie so it can become my new favorite.

South Wales Evening Post

I thoroughly enjoyed this. Real Housewives meets The Good Wife.

Sunday Independent

The Devil Wears Prada author brings back acerbic sidekick Emily Charlton for a revenge-tale set in the wealthy suburbs. Cue acidic one-liners, eyebrow raising parties and the return of the Devil herself.

It's a funny, feisty story, which bangs the drum for female solidarity at a time when the #MeToo campaign is still very much in the public consciousness.

Belfast Telegraph

The Wives, Weisberger’s seventh novel, is among her best... a witty guide to how to get by in wealthy suburban America.
