Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers!
For some reason, this week seems to be escaping me. How so? Well, the days are flying by and somehow or another I totally forgot to do a 'Teaser Tuesday' post yesterday, go figure. Though not the end of the world, it still irked me when I realized I had deprived you, my readers, of a tease from my current reads...since I know you oh so look forward to them (...hopefully...). No worries...I'll remedy that tomorrow. Speaking of time "slip sliding away" (if you didn't catch that tiny music reference I can't help you, sorry....if you did, way to go...), today's review focuses on a recently released title starring a character with a similar yet unrecognized problem. Ready to read all about it? Here we go! Today's book of choice is....
Here she comes just a walkin' down the street singing, do wa diddie diddie dum diddie d....oh, wait a second, no...that was someone else. *peeks around corner* There she is! Josie Brooks. Feared by many, befriended by few (okay, so none really, but maybe family), single for life (seemingly) due to choice and circumstance. You see, Josie is the person companies bring in when they are looking to revamp, and by revamp I mean down size and by down size I mean cut costs and by cut costs I mean size up the situation and determine who and what can be cut. She's carried many names over the years most of which were warranted by the situation (hey, you can't help feeling a bit of anger towards the person that recommends you are being no longer viable) but said behind her back. No problem for Josie since she has built herself a steel exterior and a wall around her heart to keep any personal attacks at bay. No problem that is until now...
With little time to explore this unexplained "miracle" of sorts, Josie pushes it to the back of her mind as she focuses on the job at hand. This job however is hitting home more so than usual, knocking a chink or two from her carefully constructed walls. What is it about this particular job that has her in a tizzy? These new found feelings along with an unquenchable thirst strike her as two of a handful of things mysteriously out of sorts....and the solution to her problems comes from the most unlikely of places. There is much to learn on the path of life and Josie is about to play the ultimate game of catch up.

This title hit shelves everywhere on 09/21/10, so be on the lookout at your favorite book store or online site. The first two chapters of the book are available at the publisher's website for you to sample. A word to the wise...in my own reading experience, I was drawn into this book more so later on than the beginning, so consider it with an open mind.
Special thanks to author Charlene Ann Baumbich and Waterbrook Press for the review copy. (THANKS!) For more information about the author and her current work, visit her website or follow along on Twitter. To find out more about the publisher, check them out at their current site.
