A Vera Wang dress, the reception at a sophisticated London venue, and a guest list that reads like a society gossip column are all the ingredients of Anna Whitehall´s perfect wedding that never was.... Spending the summer uncovering hidden treasures in a vintage shop, Anna can still vividly remember both her childhood dreams. The first was that she´d become a prima ballerina and dance onstage resplendent in a jewel-encrusted tutu. The second was that at her wedding, she would walk down the aisle wearing a collective-gasp-from-the-congregation dress. Years ago Anna pirouetted out of her cosy hometown village in a whirl of ambition...but when both of those fairy-tale dreams came crashing down around her ballet shoes, she and fiancé Seb find themselves back in Nettleton, their wedding and careers postponed indefinitely.... Don´t they say that you can never go home again? Sometimes they don´t get it right...This one summer is showing Anna that your dreams have to grow up with you. And sometimes what you think you wanted is just the opposite of what makes you happy.... Don´t miss this brilliant sequel to The Parisian Christmas Bake Off. 1. Language: English.

A delightfully dishy novel about the all-time most impossible boss in the history of impossible bosses. Andrea Sachs, a small-town girl fresh out of college, lands the job ´´a million girls would die for.? Hired as the assistant to Miranda Priestly, the high-profile, fabulously successful editor of Runway magazine, Andrea finds herself in an office that shouts Prada! Armani! Versace! at every turn, a world populated by impossibly thin, heart-wrenchingly stylish women and beautiful men clad in fine-ribbed turtlenecks and tight leather pants that show off their lifelong dedication to the gym. With breathtaking ease, Miranda can turn each and every one of these hip sophisticates into a scared, whimpering child. THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA gives a rich and hilarious new meaning to complaints about ´´The Boss from Hell.? Narrated in Andrea´s smart, refreshingly disarming voice, it traces a deep, dark, devilish view of life at the top only hinted at in gossip columns and over Cosmopolitans at the trendiest cocktail parties. From sending the latest, not-yet-in-stores Harry Potter to Miranda´s children in Paris by private jet, to locating an unnamed antique store where Miranda had at some point admired a vintage dresser, to serving lattes to Miranda at precisely the piping hot temperature she prefers, Andrea is sorely tested each and every day?and often late into the night with orders barked over the phone. She puts up with it all by keeping her eyes on the prize: a recommendation from Miranda that will get Andrea a top job at any magazine of her choosing. As things escalate from the merely unacceptable to the downright outrageous, however, Andrea begins to realize that the job a million girls would die for may just kill her. And even if she survives, she has to decide whether or not the job is worth the price of her soul. From the Hardcover edition.
