Soft Candyby J. D. Lenzen
Synopsis: Set in the Bay Area during the dot-com days of the late nineties, Soft Candy is the story of Saint Swithin McGuire-a Napa Valley concierge turned personal assistant to Dave Bennett, the CEO of KitschCreations.com. Fueled by a massive step up in pay, blind bravado and company perks that'd make James Bond jealous, Saint Swithin quickly descends into the morally depleted excesses of underground dance communities, drugs and the San Francisco dot-com lifestyle.
"For an ex dot-comer like me, the descriptions were dead on and immediately brought back memories. Down the rabbit hole I went, and, like it or not, I was committed for the whole ride!"

I enjoyed Soft Candy very much -- a real page-turner! I had trouble putting it down and, like Mr. Lenzen's next novel, Disturbingly Normal, I lost sleep because I could not stop reading it. The story and characters take hold of you and draw you in, refusing to let go. Combining the morals of "if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is" with the dangers of getting too much too fast makes it a "word to the wise" lesson, as well. I highly recommend Soft Candy to anyone who wants a novel that will take them on an "E-Ticket" ride!
