Description (from cover):
‘Almost a decade has passed since Andy Sachs quit the job ‘a million girls would die for’ working for Miranda Priestly at Runway magazine–a dream that turned out to be a nightmare. Andy and Emily, her former nemesis and co-assistant, have since joined forces to start a high-end bridal magazine. The Plunge has quickly become required reading for the young and stylish. Now they get to call all the shots: Andy writes and travels to her heart’s content; Emily plans parties and secures advertising like a seasoned pro. Even better, Andy has met the love of her life. Max Harrison, scion of a storied media family, is confident, successful, and drop-dead gorgeous. Their wedding will be splashed across all the society pages as their friends and family gather to toast the glowing couple.
Andy Sachs is on top of the world. But karma’s a bitch.
The morning of her wedding, Andy can’t shake the past. And when she discovers a secret letter with crushing implications, her wedding-day jitters turn to cold dread.
Andy realizes that nothing–not her husband, nor her beloved career–is as it seems. She never suspected that her efforts to build a bright new life would lead her back to the darkness she barely escaped ten years ago–and directly into the path of the devil herself…’
Do not let the title of this one fool you. There is nothing about revenge in this one and the title is beyond misleading. If you are looking for some type of Miranda Priestly comeuppance this book is not for you. If you’re just curious to see where the characters from The Devil Wears Prada ended up, then perhaps you might enjoy this one. Andy lacks her former personality that made her so likeable in the previous book. Sure you’re happy for her and her so-called glamorous life, but the author seems to have lost her connection with the main character.
Andy Sachs is about to get married to Max Harrison, the perfect guy. He is rich, successful and of course, handsome. Nevertheless, Andy thinks she has found her soul mate. On the day of her wedding she discovers a note from her intended mother-in-law that knocks her right off her feet and makes her question everything about her life. She is successful herself in her own right, being the editor of a bridal magazine called The Plunge and she has left Miranda Priestly far behind. Or so she thinks. When Miranda pops back up in her life things start to take a turn for the worse. Will Andy hold onto herself and her dreams or will Miranda sweep them away with the flick of her hand?
This book was a highly anticipated release due to the success of The Devil Wears Prada. This was just a disappointment. The characters are nothing like their old selves. Miranda is somewhat nicer than usual. Andy is just confused and running around doing whatever she thinks will work. Miranda makes all of three appearances in this book and don’t even get me started on the so-called ‘revenge’. I of course had to read this book because I would have been curious, but I wasn’t impressed and was outright disappointed with the quality and the storyline. It seemed to me that Weisberger is looking for a fast buck and it really shows in the writing. Not anything like I thought it would be. A complete waste of time. If you absolutely have to read this one, get it from the library and don’t waste your money buying a copy.
