IN OFFICE HOURS: A GIVEAWAY

 GIVEAWAY ENDED
IN OFFICE HOURS
BY LUCY KELLAWAY

ABOUT THE BOOK:
IN OFFICE HOURS is the story of Stella and Bella, two intelligent working women who each fall for impossible lovers--at work. Kellaway's keen observations on the way in which affairs move from state to state are a sort of masterclass in office love, bringing to life both the excitement of illicit romance and the ridiculousness of business behavior and language with a sharp sense of humor.

IN OFFICE HOURS is intelligent, funny, moving and agonizing, but it's also so painfully reconizable to any woman who has ever worked in an office or ever been in love. Kellaway hits a real nerve with her depictions of how people come to get into the emotional messes that we do and then how very difficult it is to get out again.
 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Lucy Kellaway is the management columnist at the Financial Times. She also writes a weekly management column for The Irish Times. In addition she has worked as energy correspondent, Brussels correspondent, a Lex column writer for the Financial Times, and interviewer of business people and celebrities, all with the FT. She has become well known for her pointed commentaries on the limitations of modern corporate culture. At the British Press Awards 2006 she was named Columnist of the Year.

OPEN BOOK:
You can visit the Hachette Book Group website's "OPEN BOOK" HERE and read an excerpt from this delightful book.

It was a difficult decision because there are so many great giveaways but I decided that I most 'Between the Plums' (audio) because the author is one of my favorites.

I have already entered the contest for 'Thin, Rich and Pretty' (audio)

Hi! I think this book would be a fun read. Any kind of office romance is exciting but can be dangerous as well. The plot reminds me a little of the movie "Working Girl". Thanks! :)

Office romances are always messy, I wouldn't recommend it especially if one or both partners are already married! This book sounds interesting.

The first office I worked in was all women. The last one was primarily women with a couple married men. No one worth getting involved with. Never interested.

I just read an excerpt of this book and it sounded fun. I met my current bf at work, ironic, and it just seems like a great plot.

I'd worked in an office myself and seeing all the romantic goings on this may just bring up some memories

What an intriguing storyline! If an author "hits a real nerve" in the telling of a story then it has to be a great read. Count me in!
