Editorial Reviews

Review

Betty and Jack are probably like most other happily married couples in their thirties. They're opposites in every way and live in totally different worlds.

That's how Jack wryly describes their married life when management ranks in the corporate world are suddenly opened to women. When Jack finds himself looking after Katie, a pretty new management trainee in the big conglomerate that employs them, his world is turned upside down. So is hers.

A love story that will make you laugh and move you to tears. There is just the right blend of thought-provoking insights, strong characters, and unexpected humor. Which makes this book an outstanding read.

                  -- Diane Donovan, senior reviewer, Midwest Book Review

About the Author

Karl Jacobs knows where the bodies are buried in the corporate world. He's worked in the headquarters of major corporations in mid-town Manhattan, Newark, N.J., and Wilmington, Delaware. He was speechwriter and special assistant to the vice chairmanat DuPont, and a public affairs vice president and chief speechwriter for two chairmen and CEO's at Prudential Financial.

Before he entered the business world, Karl was  a reporter for small newspapers in Kansas and Minnesota,  and became a news and feature writer and assistant city editor of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, where he covered  major news events across the country.

Both of his novels grew out of this mix of experiences. His earlier novel, THE PRESIDENT'S KILLERS, has been an Amazon bestseller.

Karl has a journalism degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and eight years later did graduate work in sociology as a Sage Fellow. He and his wife Kay met in the high school band in Superior when he bet a friend a quarter she would return his wink. He was 16 at the time and she was 14. He won the bet and eventually Kay. They have three adult children.
