Overview

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 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...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Nearly a decade after The Devil Wears Prada, Weisberger revisits her heroine Andy Sachs—former assistant to the vicious Miranda Priestly of Runway magazine. Now the editor of her own wildly successful bridal magazine, Andy is about to marry media mogul Max Harrison. Although all seems to be going well, a series of events catapult Andy back to her self-conscious Runway days. Her image-obsessed mother-in-law (whose over the top snobbery makes her nearly indistinguishable from Miranda) thinks Andy isn't good enough for Max, and her business partner Emily wants to sell their magazine to Elias-Clark, the publisher of Runway, which would make Andy once again a servant to Miranda. Weisberger adds many plot elements that put Andy and her lifetyle in jeopardy—and while the resolutions won't shock—Andy's character is what drives the book, after all- this sequel is a fun summer read.

Kirkus Reviews
Weisberger's sequel to The Devil Wears Prada, a 2003 best-seller inspired by the author's time working for Anna Wintour at Vogue. It's been 10 years and Andy Sachs is still haunted by the memory of evil Miranda Priestly, her former boss at women's fashion bible Runway. No longer Miranda's lackey, Andy is now a successful writer and founder of a glossy wedding magazine called The Plunge. Andy's former co-worker at Runway, Emily, once an enemy, is now her best friend and business partner. And Alex, Andy's longtime boyfriend and first love, is with a new woman. As the book opens, Andy marries Max, investor in The Plunge and a great-guy-from-a-wealthy-family (whose mother briefly attempts to sabotage the nuptials). When Miranda finally resurfaces, wanting to acquire The Plunge, Andy must decide if she can compromise dignity for money. The plot doesn't heat up until the final third, when infidelity, backstabbing, betrayal and corporate shenanigans converge. By then there's a cute baby, too. As for Miranda: Be warned, she's in few scenes and not exactly the monster of hellion proportions fans remember. This is Andy's story--a story at times all over the place, with some questionable turns in logic, but with a happy, somewhat unexpected ending. The Devil is back…sort of. Not as fast-paced or exciting as the original, but diehard Prada fans will want to check it out.
