The bestselling author of The Devil Wears Prada and Everyone Worth Knowing is back with a delicious novel about a trio of best friends in Manhattan who agree to change their lives in the most personal and dramatic way possible—and to do it within one calendar year.
Meet Emmy, Leigh, and Adriana. Best friends since college, each has seen her share of career foils and romantic foibles over the past decade. Now, as they approach thirty, they're looking toward their future...and they're not quite sure they like what they see.
When they are each alone on Valentine's Day, the trio makes a pact. Within one year, each woman will change the thing that most challenges her. For Emmy, it will be to find romance—or a fling—in every foreign country she visits. For Leigh, a book editor with a dream boyfriend and dream apartment, no change seems necessary—until she starts to notice a brilliant and brooding man named Jesse. And for commitment-phobic, drop-dead-gorgeous Adriana, her goal is to have an engagement ring and a house in Scarsdale. Each woman starts the year with the best of intentions—which is exactly why the pact goes immediately, and exceptionally, awry.
Filled with delicious insider details, Chasing Harry Winston whisks readers into the heart of an elite world and unforgettable characters. Let the games begin!

"Fans of the Weisberger's earlier book, the blockbuster bestseller THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, will be sadly disappointed in this SEX AND THE CITY look-alike. Three friends, pushing 30, are each looking for Mr. Right--and failing. As Lily Rabe individualizes each character, her tone, pace, and accent make each friend unique. Emmy, who will do anything to please, is dumped by her boyfriend for a younger woman. Leigh is an ambitious, driven book editor. Adriana, the most interesting character, is a Brazilian bombshell. While Rabe manages to hold together the directionless plot, she can't save a story line that relies too much on sexual details and on humor that falls flat. M.T.B.
