These Girls

Every woman has secrets. The difference is how each woman handles and protects her secrets. Three women came to New York under separate circumstances. By chance, they link up in the melting pot of a city. 

Cate is the features editor of Gloss magazine. The job position is excellent for her. But Cate hopes her secret past doesn't tamper with her career's future.

Cate's roommate, Renee, also works for Gloss. Her goal is to be promoted to the beauty editor position but she doubts her ability. Renee is insecure about her weight and believes she'll have a better chance in life if she just loses some pounds. Popping diet pills won't hurt, right? 

The third roommate is Abby. She arrived in New York distraught and heartbroken. Not too long ago, Abby was a happy grad student working as a live-in nanny in D.C. Until something happened to make her leave everything behind.

What's a good story without a hot male character? No such thing! There is one hot guy that has a connection to all of the women. It may seem like these three women have nothing else in common. But they do: secrets. As a close friendship grows, they bond together and help each other through issues of love, trust, career choices and self-image.

I thoroughly enjoyed Skipping a Beat, All is Bright and Love, Accidentally. Sarah Pekkanen's latest full novel was just as interesting. This is an author that tells realistic stories, yet offer an escape for fiction lovers. The plots could very well be true for any woman in the real world. This is why Pekkanen's books are so engaging. Don't bypass this author. These Girls is her third novel and I am looking forward to more.
