The sequel you’ve been waiting for: the follow-up to the sensational #1 bestseller The Devil Wears Prada.

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 highend 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...

review

The Devil Wears Prada was one of the first books I read that introduced me to chick lit. I enjoyed all the drama and series of events that Andy went through. I about jumped out of my seat when I saw there was a sequel. By the time I finished the last chapter of the book, I was ready to jump out of my seat and return the audiobook edition back to the library. Ugh, there were little snippets of the first book that kept me listening and just wanting to get involved. Andy, to me, was extremely whiny, flighty, and a door mat. In turn, there were a few moments of redemption in regards to her being a mother and facing the betrayal in the end. This sequel wasn’t really much of a sequel. Usually these types of stories tie up past story lines in a neat package. It was wrapped up.. sort up… with duck tape.

I would only recommend this book if you feel loyalty to the first novel and want something of a continuation of the main character from The Devil Wears Prada.
