Learning Curves by Gemma Townley

Reading Gemma Townley is exactly what I expect it to be, a nice, light read. A friend of mine at work would put this in her pile of "nice, fluffy, girl books" (I love that description) and that's exactly what it is. It's entertaining. It's fairly happy and you know you aren't going to come out of it snapping at your family. (Or is that just me that gets so entrenched in a book that I do things like that).
This story centres around Jennifer Bell. She's kind of wandering aimlessly through life, currently working for her mother but talked into doing some spying on her father's company via taking her MBA through them. (Her parents are divorced and she has little to no relationship with her father). The plot sounds like it should be more involved than it is. She and her mother are eco-activists. Her father is all about corporation. We find Jen really doesn't know where she fits as she glides through life and life's decisions. We know she is looking for some truth, but stumbles along the way. Take it for what it is, an enjoyable quick read and don't read too much into it.
