I received this book free from E-Book Discovery in exchange for an honest review. Staying busy has never been a problem for Thea Kozak, she is a workaholic. She really has a busy life and believes she has all she can handle; that was before she had to fire an assistant for incompetence. Now she has to start interviewing people to fill the position. She also has a multitude of problems that arise with her best friend's wedding. Then to make matters worse, her old friend and former college roommate calls for help. If Thea has a flaw, it is that she can’t say NO to a friend in need. Sometimes it’s hard trying to fit everything into a day, but she works hard at it and things seem to be working out. She is working out the kinks with regard to the wedding and reception. Her executive assistant is getting people scheduled for the interviews. Suzanne and her business is expanding and she is trying to take care of her friend’s request, although that is proving to be more involved than she expected. Then, the attacks on Thea begin, first attempted burglaries, then attacks on her person! How can she handle everything? Will she be able to make the wedding happen? Will she end up being sued by the employee she fired? Will she be able to solve her old friend's problem? Will she live to see another day? This is a very well written story with lots of twists, turns, and a few surprises. Her characters are well developed with definite personalities.
