Wife in the Fast Lane by Karen Quinn

Mar 30, 2010

Christy Hayes has it all: Olympic medals, a thriving business she built from the ground up, a dashing and successful CEO husband and all that comes with him. It’s more than she ever dreamed of. But it’s all about to come crashing down after her beloved housekeeper passes leaving Christy the guardian of her 11 year old grand-daughter Renata. With Renata come responsibilities that upset the balance of Christy’s life. And she is forced to make choices that neither her Olympic training, nor her business acumen have prepared her for.

Ridiculous characterizations and unlikely business situations make this more a beach read than a book club selection, but if you can refrain from close inspection it’s still an enjoyable escape.
