The Wives by Lauren Weisberger



Emily Charlton does not do the suburbs. A successful stylist and image consultant to Hollywood stars, she cut her teeth as assistant to legendary fashion editor Miranda Priestly in New York. But with Snapchatting millennials stealing her clients, Emily needs to get back in the game – and fast.
She holes up at the home of her oldest friend Miriam in the upscale suburb of Greenwich. And when Miriam’s friend, model Karolina Hartwell, is publicly dumped by her husband Graham, a senator with presidential ambitions, Emily scents the client of a lifetime.
It’s not just Karolina’s reputation that’s ruined. It’s her family. And Miriam and Emily are determined he won’t get away with it. First they’ll get Karolina’s son back. Then they’ll help her get her own back. Because the wives are mad as hell . . .




Although I had heard of author Lauren Weisberger I had never read any of her books. A twitter friend of mine was reading The Wives and was singing its praises but because I had not read The Devil Wears Prada I was unsure if I would be able to read The Wives as a stand alone but after her urging me to give it a try I decided to give it a go.

The storyline follows three strong and determined women, Emily Charlton who is an image consultant and her best friend Maureen who was a corporate Lawyer who is finding her feet in her new role as stay at home mummy. When Emily is at a loose end with the worry that her grip on her job is slipping she opts to stay with Maureen and it is here that the story begins when she meets Maureen’s friend Karolina who is a well-known model and the wife of a senator who has hit the media headlines in a very bad way with her life now crumbling down quickly around her. Can this be the job to get Emily’s name back in the game?

I found this book was absolutely fine to read as a stand alone as we are given the odd reference to Emily’s previous job with Miranda Priestly who also makes an appearance.

I loved all three of the women in this book, Emily was definitely the feisty, fashionable, no-nonsense kind of woman, Maureen seemed a little more grounded and little more relatable and as she is learning the ways of other stay at home mums and the things they do her eyes are opened at the same time as giving the reader something to chuckle about! Karolina was quite a soft natured character and was not the kind of personality I was expecting. I loved that her priority was not to get even but just to be able to see her son, I had so much respect for her and I was really routing for her the whole way through her impossible situation.

I really enjoyed this book and it has definitely made me want to read more books by this author. Her writing is fast paced and she has created a storyline with friendship, humour and scandal with such strong determined women who are unforgettable. A great modern glamorous read that I would definitely recommend and I think that fans of Sophie Kinsella and Lindsey Kelk would love this book.
