Book Review: The Manny

The MannyThe Manny by Holly Peterson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Upper-class chick lit that's set in Manhattan and written by professionally successful women who live and work there is a long-running favorite/weakness for me, and this book fit that bill. It was a fun read while I was on vacation and overall I liked it. I think the author meandered off-topic a lot, however, and the ethics behind many of the character's actions were definitely smarmy. There were some explicit scenes that pushed the book's quality level down for me. In the end it kind of all comes together, and I liked the ending more than I thought I would.
