|Plot Summary of Who You Know|
Kensington, May 2003, 12.95, 320 pp.
In Colorado, Rette has many regrets to including trying to kill herself in school to gain high grades and being overweight. She needs a job and hopes to score one as a copy editor at McKenna Marketing. Her live-in boyfriend Greg and she plan to wed soon.
Rette's sister Jen hates her job at McKenna Marketing and barely does enough to keep from being fired. She is beautiful and quite a male magnet, but broke up with her boyfriend for the fifth and she insists last time. She is desperate enough to keep having her computer break down so the IT repair hunk that she desires shows up to fix it.
Rette's best friend and neighbor Avery looks for love over the Internet personnel pages with her current interest being some cyberspace stud (she hopes he is a heterosexual male her age) ArtLover. Though brilliant, hard working, and productive, she is frustrated with McKenna Marketing for bypassing her for promotion for a bozo who fails to come close to her performance.
WHO YOU KNOW is a delightful chick lit that is at its best when the Office Space like activity occurs in the business environs. The tale is solid, but not as strong when the plot ventures into the love lives of the trio. The key threesome seems real as they seek love in their personal lives and survival in their professional lives.
