Dirty Blonde and The Devil Wears Prada

Dirty Blonde by Lisa Scottoline

Fast-paced, page turner tale of newly appointed judge Cate Fante, whose latest case between a Hollywood producer and the script writer who claims his story was stolen opens up Cate's sordid personal life and results in several murders. Good cops, bad cops, a love story of course, suspense, chases and a rather implausible main character makes this a fun read. Actually I listened to this one, and Barbara Rosenblat's reading brought the book to life.

The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger

Andrea Sachs has just graduated from college and accepted a job as assistant to famed magazine editor, Miranda Priestly in the hopes that a year of working with the fasion maven will open doors, hopefully to The New Yorker. She quickly finds that her new boss is, well, the devil in Prada and the job totally takes over Andrea's life. A fun read even if you don't care very much about fashion. The movie trailers with Meryl Streep look delicious which was my main reason for picking this one up--can't wait!
