I have a confession to make, I am a thief! Every chance I get I steal a moment to read Mary Carters book "She'll Take It!". Twenty minutes hear, forty-five minutes there, an hour here (if I am really lucky and don't get caught). I can't help myself, I have to read this book! I wish I could just sit down and finish the whole thing in one sitting - its a page turner! Its rare I laugh out loud from a book, but I constantly found myself doing so at every cafe', every bus ride, every morning before the kids get up. Whenever (and wherever) I can find a quiet moment to steal, I take it!
Melanie Zeitgar is a completely real and likable character. The book made me feel like I was eavesdropping on a handful of girlfriends in some outta the way cafe' in New York City. It felt like a real life version of "Sex and the City" (where people actually worry about their next paycheck). On top of that you get to do something that has eluded single men everywhere for ages - you get a rare look into the mind of a real women and hear how she thinks! The BBC would have a goldmine of good programming if they green lit this authors property!
