Something Tragic by Jessica Yeh

⭐⭐⭐⭐☆★ There are some books that hold you in a thrall of emotions that they create long after you’ve finished them. You have emotions...

Calendar Girl By Georgia Beers






⭐⭐⭐

Addison Fairchild, the eldest of three Fairchild children is working herself to death in an effort to be named successor to the behemoth Fairchild Enterprises by her soon-to-retire mother. She has so far achieved solitude, isolation, ulcers and unimaginable stress levels, but refuses to slow down. She is desperate to get the position. It ends up in a collapse and a rushed visit to the ER. As a result, an assistant is thrust upon Addison – if only temporarily.

Katie Cooper, a sweetheart, all sweetness and light, is that assistant. Katie’s father has age-related onset of dementia and is quickly fading. She has recently moved back to live with her parents to be there for them physically, emotionally and financially.

Addison is resentful about being saddled with an assistant and pulls a Miranda Priestly on Katie. Though seriously devalued by her new boss, Katie struggles to be seen by Addison, driven by need and attraction.

Beers writes an engaging story. You really get the two girls. You can understand why Addison runs away from Katie. You can feel Katie and desperately wish for good things to happen to her.

The OTT romantic in us would’ve like a bigger, grander end-gesture from Addison…but that’s just our greedy hearts.

Calendar Girl is an okay read.
