A different story, with an unpredictable plot. I really liked the way this was told, the point of view, the story itself. As a legal assistant myself, I laughed out loud at the observations the main character had. Enjoyable read.

The plot was a little predictable, but I thought the writer's style was easy and engrossing. This is a great beach book -- light, fun, entertaining.

Very well-written fiction about a secretary/filmmaker for a NYC law firm. Winona, the protagonist, is lost but likeable at the same time. Quick, easy but interesting read.

Winona Bartlett is a secretary of an NYC law firm, but has dreams of being a filmmaker. Enter Sandy Spires, the gorgeous, domineering, and blind new lawyer, who inspires Winona to continue working on her film. Office romances, secret meetings, disappointments and revelations - all is not necessarily as it appears. A fun read

I tried, but I just couldn't get into this. I made it through the first 100 pages and I just didn't feel like going any further. It just couldn't grab my attention.

Ehhh. (My first thought.)

Surprisingly hard to read considering the light and fluffy subject matter, probably due to the author's efforts to be clever. (My second thought.)

This is the storu of a hipster girl, working as a secretary, while thinking that she is a filmmaker, who discovers love and also that people are not what they seem. Sigh. At least the protagonist actually realizes, about, two-thirds through the book, that it is good idea if a film has something resembling a plot.
