I am still laughing! 'Erica' makes you laugh and cry at the same time.
There are so many excerpts I want to put here, but will limit it to this from page ONE:
"The sign on her forehead must have said: WILL HELP FOR NOTHING AND WILL THANK YOU FOR IT!...THIS IS WHAT I DO FOR ENTERTAINMENT!" (Patricia)
If you can get a copy of this book, grab it!

Witty, dry humor mixed with a plot that involves identity theft, office romance, and high tech embezzlement. I enoyed this book more than I even thought I would when I bought it - a really good read!

I'm seeing mixed reviews on this one from readers, but it just didn't fire for me.

Tax advisor / financial analyst Mitch Grieff decides he's tired of living for other people and doing what's expected of him (although closer examination reveals him to be whiny, selfish, and basically lazy), and allows himself to be pulled into a scheme to make off with $103 million in client funds.

As a caper tale, it's too slow-moving to appeal, but the biggest problem for me was that there wasn't a single character in it that I cared about. If they weren't selfish and whiny, they were manipulative or larcenous, or some combination of the four.

If this hadn't been part of a book challenge, I wouldn't have finished it.
