Dundurn Press, $17.99

In Kim Moritsugu’s seventh novel, she introduces us to three fearless, ambitious women who will do just about anything to stay relevant in a capricious industry. The dialogue between the characters is quick, playful, and biting, and Moritsugu has a knack for making a story feel like it is racing toward its conclusion without rushing the plot unnecessarily. Do not feel surprised to catch yourself switching allegiances during the course of the novel because it is nearly impossible not to root for all of these women to get what they want (and deserve).
