Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns by Laura Weisberger
May 2014 Simon & Schuster
Synopsis from Goodreads: 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…
My Thoughts: I read the Devil Wears Prada and this sequel back to back, and I have to tell you, it was like reading about 2 completely different people. I get that the second book takes place 10 years later than the first. Andy has grown up a lot, but she is like a totally different person, and so are all the other characters. Miranda isn’t in the book as much as I would’ve liked, and she isn’t really the bad person in this book. I’m not going to spoil it and tell you who is, but it was just kind of weird to me when considering the title of the book. She isn’t a saint, but she isn’t the villain of the book either. I liked the story okay, but it was totally different from the first book. It wasn’t at all what I was expecting. Because it didn’t make sense to me, I gave it 3 stars.
