Goodreads:  Cinderella meets Falling Down in this wickedly funny tale about having it all

Carol is perfect… at least that’s what everyone thinks. In reality she’s sinking fast – her family treats her like their personal assistant and her boyfriend is so busy with work that he’s got her single-handedly running their relationship. Not that her job is any easier. As the only woman on the bank’s trading floor she spends twelve-hour days trying not to get sworn at or felt up by colleagues who put the "W" in banker.

How long can she go on pleasing everyone else before she snaps and loses it all?

Kritters Thoughts:  Michele Gorman is the queen of light hearted, yet thoughtful books with female main characters that are just awesome.  Carol is a daughter, sister, friend, girlfriend and co worker and in each of her roles she tries her darndest to do anything she can to make other's lives easier, even if it means giving of her own time and sanity.  From pre-selecting dates for her best friend to helping her sister plan her wedding, she does it all.  

From the beginning, I adored Carol and loved seeing how she tried every way possible to extend herself to help everyone in her life.  I don't claim to be the people pleaser that Carol is, but I did giggle at a few moments as I am the family researcher and probably tend to do things for others before I do my own list of things to do.  I appreciated that Gorman had the main character have a series of melt downs instead of a huge big blow up with everyone, it was person by person and felt more real and I loved it!

This is a great little novel to curl up with for an afternoon and chuckle at a character who is the people pleaser of people pleasers!

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
