Goodreads:  A humiliating experience at an office party prompts married mom-of-two, Becky, to ditch the junk food and start a healthy new lifestyle, with or without the help of her apathetic family. During one of her early morning workouts Becky meets an attractive new guy in town, whose attentiveness makes her question her 15-year marriage to sports-obsessed husband, Dave. 

Seemingly unflappable businesswoman Fay is convinced that her husband, Pete, is having an affair with his leggy, blond personal assistant. Determined to find out the truth, Fay enlists the help of Becky and HR nightmare Brigitte. After several failed attempts at playing amateur detective, Fay discovers that what she thinks she knows about Pete doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of his deception. 

Oblivious to her coworkers' marital woes, lovable but self-centered Brigitte is on a two-pronged mission: to beat out her arch-nemesis Tom for a departmental promotion, and to sleep with as many men as possible. Unfortunately her inability to separate business and pleasure means that Brigitte is more likely to get an appointment at the unemployment center than a desk in a corner office. Everyone can see Brigitte's impending career spiral…except for Brigitte.

Kritters Thoughts:  Three women who all work together take turns telling their stories and they will intermingle from the beginning and twist and turn.  Becky is a married mother of two who is trying to keep her professional life and personal life running.  Brigitte is divorced and is wanting her professional life to move forward, but is enjoying the life of a single lady!  Fay knows that there is a secret in her relationship and is willing to go to an extreme to figure it out, but will she be ok with the truth.

I loved that the story bounced back and forth between the three women and they all had a little drama going on in their lives.  At the same time they could each give the other some perspective on what was going on in their lives.  If you tend to shy away from books with ladies with drama, don't fret this one wasn't over the top, each character had real issues that either you or a girlfriend of yours has and it was more or less entertaining.

I like to read these semi lighter books interspersed between my mystery/thrillers or my heavy subject matter books, it is nice to take a breath now and then.  I lived Victoria's writing and would absolutely read another one.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
