Description

Last Night at Chateau Marmont From the New York Times bestselling author of The Devil Wears Prada, a compulsively readable novel about a woman whose struggling singer-songwriter husband is catapulted to fame, dragging them both onto the pages of celebrity gossip magazines—and changing their marriage forever.

Brooke loved reading the dishy celebrity gossip rag Last Night. That is, until her marriage became a weekly headline...

For five years, she’s worked two jobs to support her husband’s dream of making it in the music world. Finally, after countless gigs at Manhattan dive bars and toiling as an A&R intern, the soulful, enigmatic Julian Alter gets signed by Sony, where he logs long hours in the recording studio with no promise of success. But when he is invited to perform on a national late-night talk show, he is catapulted to stardom—literally overnight.

At first the newfound fame is fun—who wouldn’t want to stay at the Chateau Marmont or love being treated like rock royalty? But as Brooke’s sweet husband becomes increasingly absent and tabloid rumors swirl, Brooke begins to question the truth about their marriage and is forced to finally come to terms with what she thinks she wants—and what she actually needs.

    This book was well written and kept me coming back for more. The story gave me anxiety and was heart wrenching... But it really takes a good book to pull out those kind of emotions! I recommended it!

    This is what you expect from Lauren Weisenberg. Entertaining chick-lit. Although maybe a little predictable (in a totally satisfying way), she draws you in with great character development. You know who you're supposed to like and dislike, but you can't help loving them all just a bit anyway. A quick, highly enjoyable beach read!

    This book ended up being shallow when I was prepared for more of a richer plot. Very predictable, no surprises, rushed ending and overall not as good of a summer read as I was hoping.

    Lauren Weisberger never disappoints. I have read all her books and enjoyed each one. I didn't know she had a new book coming out and bought it as soon as I saw it as a headliner in iBooks. Engaging from beginning to end, I thoroughly recommend.
  • So so

    Somewhat predictable, but a good job being contemporary.
