Review -- Last Night at Chateau Marmont by Lauren Weisberger

Last Night at Chateau Marmont
by Lauren Weisberger
Simon and Schuster Adult, 2010
370 pages
*I borrowed this book from the library.

Summary: Brooke and Julian have been married for five years. She is a nutritionist who works two jobs, supporting her husband so he can work on his music career. When Julian's record comes out and an appearance on Jay Leno makes him a celebrity, Brooke is left alone in New York and hounded by the paparazzi. Will their marriage survive the roller coaster ride of being a celebrity?

Review: I have to say that out of all the Lauren Weisberger novels (Everyone Worth Knowing, The Devil Wears Prada, and Chasing Harry Winston) -- this is my favorite so far. I enjoyed the character of Brooke and could sympathize with her as she struggles to make her marriage work. I thought she was a great character -- down to earth and interesting. Overall, the book was a bit disappointing. The plot was a bit predictable and the supporting characters were kind of dull. However, it was a quick easy read that was entertaining. Rating: *** out of 5.
