Book Description

'This is well-written, very funny and I raced through it, occasionally squealing in horror at the antics of Kate’s colleagues. It’s also a joy to read about a strong woman with a big job and fiery opinions, a nice antidote to the sugary sweet sort of chick lit.' DAILY MAIL

Kate King is furiously flailing to keep afloat. As her team bicker, finger-point and cheat their way through rumours of sackings and site closures, her ill-tempered husband is becoming increasingly embittered and secretive. Kate knows she must address his petulant question: “Surely there’s more to life than this?” but all her energies are required to dodge the corporate bullets constantly fired in her direction.
Under pressure from an attractive, younger colleague, Kate is also concerned by her sudden invisibility to the opposite sex and the alarming appearance of back fat. Disturbingly, beige knitwear has started to call to her from the shelves of M&S.
Growing more and more suspicious of her husband’s activities, pressure builds on Kate both at work and at home until her turbulent year reaches its climactic end. Can she continue to balance precariously between work and marriage, or is one end of the scales going to hit the ground with a resounding thud?

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great new talent. 21 Oct. 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Great Read, I echo what the previous review said in their warning. I too laughed out loud when reading this book.
    Jo Edwards is a great new talent. Look forward to reading more of her work.
    Kate's exploits and thoughts strike a chord with other office workers.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 18 Mar. 2013
    By AS68
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    I read a great review about this book and decided to give it a try. I wouldn't normally be attracted to the cover or title but I am so pleased that I gave the review the benefit of the doubt,

    It is just so funny, Read at home, as other reviewers have said it is laugh out loud funny, so reading on public transport is probably not a good idea unless you don't have sense of humour!

    It really cheered me up during the recent awful weather, My household chores suffered as I could not wait to read on. I loved this book.

    PS, I've never bothered to review a book before but this one is definately worth it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking debut! 30 Oct. 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition
    A witty, insightful account of life in the corporate cauldron, Jo Edwards' 'Work Wife Balance' will strike a chord with anyone who has ever worked in an office!

    I found myself by turns comiserating, nodding in agreement and laughing out loud with Kate while sharing her increasingly desperate efforts to juggle her career and home life. Keenly-observed characters jostle, scheme, gossip and back-stab their way through the pages, reminding me of everything I loved and hated about working in a similar environment and the reasons why I'm eternally grateful that I managed to escape!

    A cracking debut novel and a thoroughly enjoyable read - looking forward to a sequel!

    Found myself skipping large chunks of the rather repetitive office scenes. If I'd been the Husband I'd have been long gone.
