Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

As a researcher for an important House of Commons minister, ambitious Jess Latham has her political career rolling. Her love life's a dead-end street, but what does she care? All she needs is her job and her mates—that is, until her boss, Basil, propositions her and she realizes it's been too long since she's gotten "hot and sweaty with a member of the opposite sex." Basil manages to be both kinky and dull in the sack, but Jess is willing to play mistress, at least until Basil can extricate himself from his marriage—after all, she almost truly loves him. But Basil and wife both prove wily, and there's another complicated romance to come, this one with a handsome tabloid journalist. When things don't go swimmingly in either liaison, Jess and her coterie of funny girlfriends (each having suddenly decided to settle down with the man of her dreams) seek revenge on the two-timing cheats who have made Jess's life so difficult. This engaging novel by the author of What If? will have readers laughing with and rooting for its likable protagonist—and feeling genuinely thankful for not being in her shoes.

From Booklist

Pregnant and alone, Jess Latham could be despondent, but she chooses sweet revenge instead. When a tabloid reporter outs her affair with her politician boss, you wouldn't expect her to fall for the newsman. But after a whirlwind courtship, Jess has joined her friends in the land of the wedded. Domestic bliss is short-lived, however, when she finds out Mike has been cheating on her. Tossing him out, Jess turns to her friends Carly, Kate, Sarah, and Carol to help hatch the perfect plan of humiliation. Scottish author Low introduced these characters in What If? and now Why Not? is her U.S. debut. Stateside readers will connect to this group of girlfriends reminiscent of the beloved Sex and the City gals. And any reader who has dreamed of revenge on a cheating ex is sure to relate to and live vicariously through Jess' hilarious antics. By the end of the book, Jess finds that living well really is the best revenge, and readers will delight in the possibility of new love. Aleksandra Kostovski

Format: Paperback
Men may come and go, but you can always count on your girlfriends! That's the moral of this modern day tale of love-gone-wrong. When Jess Latham is left alone and pregnant after the betrayal of her partner, just getting through the days is the only thing on her mind. Step forward her gal-pals - with love, sympathy and a madcap plan for revenge that has you cheering as you turn the pages.

Sharp dialogue, great twists and a laugh on every page - it's an absolute treat!

I normally don't like 'chick lit' or fluff, but I couldn't put this book down. This book was written for every woman who knows that her girlfriends will invariably be more reliable than any man. A real friend is one who helps you get revenge on a man who scorned you. The author's quick wit and dialogue had me laughing and really getting attached to the characters.
