This was an easy read, and the author withheld just enough information about "the plan" that the reader keeps reading. Now for the down side. "The Plan" was executed, and things were falling into place, but a couple things still weren't resolved. I was reading the "three months later" chapter, without realizing it was a teaser for the next book in the series, and not only was I left with some loose ends from the book I had just read, but the author snuck in a major cliff hanger.
Now I do understand that many books are a continuing series - same characters, new situations. And I also get that some free books are offered to acquaint the reader with an author that may be new to them. But I feel betrayed when the author uses a trick like this to promote their books. Usually, I won't even download a book, even if it is free, if I pick up any indication that the story will be left hanging unless I buy the next book. Finish one book, and even if the characters and story of their lives and adventures continues, make each book a stand alone. So for that reason, I'm lowering the rating I would have given.
So my recommendation is if you choose to enjoy this book, do NOT get started on the final chapter following "three months later". And be prepared for some of the sub plots to remain unresolved.
Chris, Renee, and Anita are the great trio. They are part of the unemployed pact with big dreams yet to be fulfilled and little mouths that constantly need to be fed. Pinching pennies is something Anita knows all too well. To top it all off, she’s also getting zilch from her cheating ex-husband and she’s being sued by her former boss. Nice, huh?
“In every company, there are workers and visionaries…You three ladies are workers…But I’m a visionary. I see the big picture. It’s my job to see where the company is headed and plot a path to make sure it gets there…Not everyone is cut out to be a CEO.” –Anita’s Former Boss (13)
Well, that’s just all but daring them to get their product idea out and finally start their own business.
“We’re smart, we’re good at our job, and we’re all good people. But when it comes to doing the dirty work, we don’t have a clue.”—Anita (21)
Yep, getting your hands on people’s money might be a lot harder to achieve.
Quick and easy to read, the story is infused with likable characters along with witty commentaries about the economy and the cruel business industry. You can’t help cheering on as Anita fights the shady dealings of a music producer; you can’t help being on the brink of tears when she discovers her car was stolen and destroyed beyond recognition at a chop shop. Fields created such relatable characters that you’ll laugh and cry along with them. All the drama concerning the kids didn’t appeal to me so much. No doubt about it that kids are very hectic—that’s why I’m glad I don’t have any. There was also a giant mystery concerning this “con” Anita and her crew were going to pull. What were they going to do exactly—kill the boss or beat him at his own game? I was suspecting it to be the ladder as their efforts concentrated more on getting the business started using little resources and funds for M.O.M. Con (a parenting convention.) Perhaps I anticipated a comedic ploy similar to the Dolly Parton movie, 9 to 5. Instead Anita was like Diane Keaton in The First Wives Club—intelligent and reserved while also cunning enough to make them (her boss, her ex) pay. Like they said in the movie, “Don’t get mad, get everything.”
A good story for those hard-working, fast-moving, single people with no money, a lot on their minds, and the strong will to survive. You don’t have to be a mom to enjoy this book!
