*I voluntarily reviewed this book from the Publisher
I picked up on this book because I'd never read anything set in a radio station before, and I was intrigued by a plot about women competing with each other for a job, instead of the usual drippy I-just-need-a-man stuff. Still, I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't expect it to be so funny or to have such clever plot twists.
The main characters, Tess and her boss Helene, work in a small local radio station, but end up competing for a big job once the station is bought over and major expansion plans mean a glittering career with fame and glory is suddenly in the offing. The competition seems to bring out the worst in everyone involved, and there are quite a few shocks when people find out what their competitors have been up to all along.
There are great side characters in Ollie, the comically awful presenter, Sara, who was possibly my favourite even though I should probably have hated her. She made me laugh out loud several times, as did the scene at the launch party. The tale is well-drawn, very easy to visualise. Very impressive.
I loved the ending, and I wish I could tell you why, but almost anything I say would be a spoiler, so I can't! I give this book 4 stars. It improved my mood every time I got the chance to read it. I think this author has even better ahead of her still and I'll have to reserve the highest accolade for what's hopefully yet to come.
From start to finish with humor and laughter I so appreciated the developed characters Joan weaved throughout her story! I was transported to the the little village of Killary.
