Gemma Townley (sister of shop-o-holic writer Sophie Kinsella) writes of Jennifer. Jennifer was a hippy save the world girl, but after she breaks up with her boyfriend she joins the ratrace. . . very interesting premise. Book is in great shape. Great summer read.

I didn't enjoy this book nearly as much as I would have hoped. I found myself skipping through a lot of loooong paragraphs. Plus, I didn't really feel like the main character had enough development. And the love story was pretty much an afterthought, it seemed. Just OK.
I did not find this book as interesting as I thought it would be. The ending picked up speed though. I haven't read from this author before; I may need to give her another chance with a different novel.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The premise is very funny: a do-gooder joins the corporate world to uncover greed and corruption and save the day. It sort of reminded me of the movie Two Weeks Notice (with Hugh Grant and Sandra Bullock). It was a quick read and very enjoyable.
I really liked this book. I have read her other book Little White LIes and really liked this one as well. It was a little slow in the beginning but it picks up eventually. Good book and an easy breezy read.
Slow moving - no heat between characters. I actually skipped parts (something I don't usually do); especially those scenes that took place in the lecture hall. Cute premise but could have been done better.
