The Stiletto Chronicles
image:Simon and SchusterWhy Not? by Shari Low (Downtown Press, $13.00)
Jess Latham should have known better. She should have known that an all-out focus on her career would leave her feeling empty in other areas of her life. She should have known that getting involved with her boss was a bad idea, because he was married and her boss. Also, he's a condescending snob who stinks in bed. She should have known that all married men who cheat say their marriages are empty arrangements of convenience. She should have known that her affair was heading nowhere. What Jess Latham could never have possibly guessed was that her affair would wind up on the front page of every tabloid in London for all to see.

Jess loses everything except her gang of devoted girlfriends who are determined to help her get back on track. Plans are hatched during their weekly Margaritas and Mexican food outings, which often wind up in drunken revelry. After another worse heartbreak, Jess and her friends decide revenge is the only way to go. Surprising alliances are made, devious plans are hatched, all amid much hilarity and heartbreak.

Full of warmth and humor, Jess and her friends handle crises with intelligence, wit and style. They are all women you'd like to know, and friends you'd want to have.
