Destination: Hit the streets of New York City
Synopsis: Katherine Whitney has it all. She’s married, has two daughters, is the COO of Green Goddess & Co., a multi-billion dollar health and wellness lifestyle company, and with the release of her book on work-life balance, she is not only a media darling but she is a hero to working moms everywhere. In reality, though, Katherine’s life is starting to fall apart, and her loyal assistant Lucy Cooper is the one holding most things together. But when Katherine does something unthinkable to Lucy, Lucy is faced with a difficult decision. Will she choose to change Katherine’s life forever or continue being her main champion. Her decision could change the trajectory of both of their lives. The Balance Project is a story of loyalty, choices, and most of all balance as it explores the hot-button issue that all women struggle with.
Review: I loved the synopsis of this one, and could hardly wait to start reading it. I'm so glad it was on my summer reading list!
Most women have dreamed of having it all, or even tried to make it happen. This book looks at whether or not it is actually feasible to accomplish.
While I thought the ending was a little too "happily ever after," I did enjoy the rest of the book immensely. Both Katherine and Lucy are basically likable characters, which means the reader will actually care about what's happening to them and how they are feeling.
There are a lot of twists and turns throughout the plot, and you'll find yourself not wanting to put the book down, which could have a serious impact on your work-life balance. :)
