The long anticipated sequel to The Devil Wears Prada is here and revisits Andy, Emily and Miranda ten years after Andy gave Miranda and the job “a million girls would die for” a righteous send off. Andy and Emily are now best friends who have joined forces and launched “The Plunge,” a highly successful bridal magazine. Emily is married and Andy is about to marry the love of her life in a grand wedding that will, of course, be featured in “The Plunge.”

Review: Looking For La La

Looking For La La by Ellie Campbell Looking For La La
by Ellie Campbell
reviewed by Kelly Smith

Cathy is a stay-at-home mom (or mum since the book is set in the outskirts of London), who, like many before her and scores more to come after, is utterly bored with getting the kids off to school, cleaning the house before the housekeeper gets there, doing the shopping and all the other assorted mundane chores that encompass a stay-at-home mum’s days.

As Cathy tries to find the person behind La La, a myriad of suspects emerge throughout the book. Continue reading Review: Looking For La La

Review: Hollywood Strip

Hollywood Strip by Shamron Moore Hollywood Strip
by Shamron Moore
reviewed by Rian M.

Callie Lambert has just moved to Hollywood a few months ago and has been trying to land a job as an actress.  In the meantime, she works as a waitress, goes on auditions and poses nude for sexy magazine spreads.  She has two good friends to commiserate with – a gay stylist and another aspiring actress who appears to have a substance abuse problem.  Callie just wants to be discovered, but she seems to be at a dead end, despite her gorgeous brunette good looks and talent… until she finally, through a combination of meeting the right people and performing a fantastic audition, lands a part on a risque horror movie.  Continue reading Review: Hollywood Strip

Review: Elasticity

Elasticity
by Tiffany Romigh
reviewed by Rian Montgomery

If you enjoy chick lit novels that are based around serious issues but still somehow keep that personal, readable tone that the genre is known for, then you will love Elasticity. We have three main heroines in this book: Brooke, a shopaholic who can’t seem to get her spending under control, which is a problem since she’s running out of money… and fast. There’s Whitney, who can’t seem to lose weight and keep it off, no matter what diet she tries – and she’s tried them all. Then there is Tripp, who can’t break her addiction to pills, which she basically needs to actually function.

It’s one month before their 10-year high school reunion, and all three women vow to one another that they will use that month to get their problems under control so they can attend the reunion at their best. Continue reading Review: Elasticity
