I've been waiting for this one, and it arrives just in time for summer reading.
Author Lauren Weisberger, she of "The Devil Wears Prada" fame, is back with her third novel titled "Chasing Harry Winston." I just started it and, if you loved "Devil," you've got to read "Harry."
I appreciate that Weisberger seems to have such an inside scoop on life in New York. Even though I'm far from being a "thirtysomething," the new book tells the story of three best friends about to turn 30 in, of course, the Big Apple. Each is predicting life-altering changes as they hit the big 3-0.
For example, I'll let you in that one of the characters, "Emmy," vows to have carnal knowledge of a man on every continent!
Publishers Weekly says: "A comic novel that manages to rise to the upper echelons of the chick-lit genre."
I love the book cover (shown) because it's a twist on the "Devil" cover. Instead of the red stiletto with horns, it's a white fur stiletto with diamond rings. Clever touch.
My prediction? Look out Jackie Collins, who just happened to be on the "Today" show this morning talking about another beach read, her new book "Married Lovers."
Oh heck, go ahead and get both books. For less than a tank of gas, you'll be thoroughly entertained for the next couple weeks or so.
