If you saw me you'd have no idea I ever indulged in such juvenile antics. At PTA I look just like all the other twin set, Capri, sandaled Mom's. At work I too am one of the suit wearing, lap top touting drones. In real life I'm Wonder Woman sans all the fantastic bullet thwarting jewelery and sexy cone shaped breasts. Although with the right bra, I probably could manage that part.
So I have just one question- when did this behavior become commonplace, accepted, even encouraged? Maybe like main character Dani Hale in Jules Asner's new book Whacked I should have embraced my psycho behavior instead of hiding it all this time.
Dani a writer for crime show Flesh and Bone in Los Angeles who, like my daughter and apparently all of America hence the popularity of the 50 spin-offs of CSI, has a dare one say it slight obsession with all things forensic, including the death of Marilyn Monroe. While Dani is experiencing huge success at work, her personal life is less than desirable.
Commitment-phobic boyfriend, director Dave has several suspicious close encounters with actress, Chloe. Dani is convinced there is more than a director/actress co-mingling to their relationship and hacks into his e-mails and cellphones to prove it. After discovering Dave has indeed been cheating on her, Dani plots revenge.
That's the downside to spying no one ever tells you about- occasionally your fears are justified.
This novel was fun...fun in a way that Chick Lit rarely is anymore with a great intro chapter that grabs you and leaves ya' wondering where on earth she could possibly be going. Don't get me wrong-it's not deep by any extent of the imagination but if you are looking for something to read by the pool and then pass on to your friends- go for it.
