Overview

A weight-loss clinic in New York City has an offer for you -- give them $5,000 and they'll make you as thin as a supermodel. You can eat whatever you want and you'll never gain an ounce. Tempted? Fledgling journalist Karen Sumner would be -- if only she had $5,000. When Karen finally walks through the blue and gold doors of The Program, though, she's on the trail of the hottest story of her career. If she and her friends are right, The Program is doing something even worse than creating an army of unnaturally thin women. Library Journal calls The Program "A lively first novel. Highly recommended."

Brilliant! I recommend The Program to every woman who feels insecure about her body because she thinks she weighs too much. In fact, I recommend The Program to every woman! Charlie Lovett has managed to weave romance, intrigue, suspense and mystery into this story while clearly depicting the insecurities of women who don¿t like their bodies and how far they will go to become what they think 'or society tells them' is the ¿perfect woman.¿ This book kept me intrigued until I finished it! It's almost scary how this author managed to get inside women's heads like he did with this book.

Charles Lovett gently takes his readers through an intriguing journey focusing on achieving the perfect body! What every woman secretly desires! The story will touch you, melt your heart and keep you guessing and just when you think have figured it out there is a twist of the body! You will find Charles's style of writing refreshing and easy to follow. This novel will challenge your thoughts and your biases about the woman's body. I loved it!
