Another Good Chick Lit

I finished this one and I really enjoyed it. I have to go email the author again. :)

Zoe though the calmer sister of the two in the book “Miss Understanding” still had a lot of issues she has to deal with. She is the new Deputy Editor for the magazine her sister Chloe works at. The other ladies who contribute have it out for her from day one. Not to mention her sister’s mother in law Anita, who is a snobby rich woman looking only to profit from the magazine and doesn’t seem to care what goes into it. Her brother in law Dan seems to be a little clueless himself, but she can’t fault him for loving her sister. To top it all off, Zoe’s boyfriend Michael keeps asking to take their relationship to the next step meaning marriage. She has tough work to find out how to combat the girls who were like the ones that hated her in elementary school to all the sabotage that gets thrown her way. Can she do it?

I really enjoyed Zoe in this book. She finally gets to have her say and there sure is a lot of it. This woman never backs down from anything and wants to see Issues come to the 20th Century with covering stuff that really matters not just beauty tips. Chloe is as clueless as ever and seeming to focus on nothing but clothes. She is a sweetheart and really wants what is best for the magazine and supports her sister’s ideas. I really got to know Michael, Zoe’s boyfriend, more and thoroughly admired him for sticking around but always making his thoughts known too. Those two are quite the pair together.

I loved this book more than “She’s Got Issues” because to me it had more substance. There were more problems to solve but I wanted to see them get solved. I can also tell that a lot can happen with a writing style from one book to the next and appreciated it all. Stephanie Lessing is a gem and really knows how to put women’s feeling onto the page more so in this one. I can’t wait to see what she writes next. I recommend this one very highly but you must read the other book first. It will make more sense that way.

Now I am off to read more in Controversy Creates Cash by Eric Bischoff with Jeremy Roberts. The former General Manager for Monday Night Raw. :) As well as Former CEO/President of WCW, but I'll go more into that later. :)
