This book did have a similar feel to The Devil Wears Prada except that it was a bit less over the top in its characterization. ( A bit less.)
What made it a wonderful choice, was the work of the narrator, which was exceptionally strong. She has good writing and a strong heroine to work with.
The only reason I gave it three stars, instead of four, was the very sad relationship between the heroine and her (soon to be ex) fiance. This is a very present and complicated story line, which takes up far more of the book than the 'true love' she finds at the end. I found their attempt to love each other, even though they didn't love each other unbearably sad. Particularly hard to feel good about their break up since the fiance is lost and sad rather than dislikeable.
If pure romance is not an issue for you, you might very well enjoy the book despite that.
