2. Befriend/spy on “It Girl”
3. Write killer expose
4. Land dream job

Piece of cake!

When Kate Sandford lands an interview at her favorite music magazine, The Line, it’s the chance of a lifetime. So Kate goes out to celebrate—and shows up still drunk to the interview the next morning. It’s no surprise that she doesn’t get the job, but her performance has convinced the editors that she’d be perfect for an undercover assignment for their gossip rag. All Kate has to do is follow “It Girl” Amber Sheppard into rehab. If she can get the inside scoop—and complete the thirty-day program—they’ll reconsider her for the position at The Line. Kate takes the assignment, but when real friendships start to develop, she has to decide if what she has to gain is worth the price she’ll have to pay.

Ope’s Opinion:  There were times I wanted to shake Kate – this is the interview of a life time, at a job you have dreamed about, you are thirty years old (old enough to know better) and you get drunk!  Then I felt sorry for her, she needed help and didn’t even realize it.

Though the subject matter was heavy, Catherine McKenzie’s humor made the story flow for me.  She made me like Kate a bit more.  It was satisfying to see how Kate handled her ethical choice.

This book did read fast for me – a very slow reader.
