I ve been waiting for a fiction book that would focus on the mistreatment of women in a male dominated workplace for a long time I found this book very timely in the current decade of sexual abuse scandals and the metoo movement.The main female protagonists are successful lawyers who all experienced some form of sexual harassment by their ma

I started reading Whisper Network on 6 24 2019 and finished it on 6 30 2019 This book was well written though I started to read expecting thrills in a thriller but I m left with going through the motions of waiting for when the thrills will begin, all the way up to page 209 out of page 392 The second half is a bit better but I wouldn t say it was thrilling This story focuses on the metoo movement where women come together against men for sexual harassment They whisper to each other what they went through Of the four views, I like Ardie best She s funny She said she gave them a look that would shrivel testicles into raisins and that really make me smile She s real and not pretentious I don t like Sloane She s a bit of a bully, to her friends at work and husband at home She just makes decisions and expect everyone to go along with it.This book is told in the third person point of view following Grace, Director of Compliance as she pumps milk for her newborn and receives the news about their company s CEO s untimely death The second view is Sloane, Senior Vice President as she s running late to an office meeting from her parenting duties at her daughter s school The third view is Ros
What a fun and addicting ride A corporate office full of scandals, lies, tensions, and secrets Such a fun buddy read I had with Holly I definitely recommend this one if you re tired of predictable thrillers This is different and still has that fun addicting ride that you re aiming for I respect Chandler Baker so much for writing about a such a difficult topic of sexual harassment This story focuses on four women that struggle to make it through the corporate world with challenges of sexual harassment This is a very honest portrayal of how women are treated in the workforce between other men sexually harassing them and also through other women s eyes and the assault that women have on one another The amount of power that this novel resonates with those that don t have a voice is amazing and loved it When the four women decide to come to light with the harassment and won t take the BS any. things get real Who will survive Who is telling the truth can they all be trusted I re
I love reading books about women banding together and looking out for one another whether men want to believe it or not, the way we are treated, expected to act and look, the struggles we go through in life and in our careers because of our gender color every aspect of our lives It isn t about innocent until proven guilty it s about believing women This novel is so timely and relevant and TRUE.Climbing off my soapbox now, I want to say I really enjoyed this book I loved the characters while appropriately hating the characters I was supposed to hate When I first read the blurb, it reminded me of a current day 9 5 which I adore It was, just a lot darker and a dead body thrown in the mix.I did feel like the author alluded to a lot of secrets throughout the book that weren t explained until the end There was just so many, I ha
