Rophic shift in the office Lies will be uncovered Secrets will be exposed And not everyone will survive All of their lives as women colleagues mothers wives friends even adversaries will change dramatically as a resultIf only you had listened to us” they tell us on page one of Chandler Baker's Whisper Network “none of this would have happen. The Whisper Network by chandler Baker was entertaining but boy did I struggle with this one for the first 200 pages I had seen where many readers have compared this one to Big Little Lies and I have to agree they are uite silimiar and this is probably why I picked this one up in the first place but I didnt find it as witty or as compelling as Big Little LiesThe book does have The me too campaign at the heart of its story as Four women Sloane Ardie Grace and Rosalita have worked in the same legal office of a large firm for a number of years but when the CEO dies suddenly his replacement to be Ames has a murky past and all the women have a different relationship with Ames and have reasons to put a stop to this man s Advances The book is realistic in its identification what some women encounter and have had to put up with in the workplace and I can see this one being a big book club hit this season as plenty to discuss here The book works on many levels with a suspenseful and entertaining plot but my problem with the novel was that the characters were indistinguishable from each other for the first half of the story Sloane Ardie and Grace just seemed to blend together and I had a hard time keeping track of who was who I really didn t like or connect with any of them either I very nearly put this one into the DNF pile as it just didn t hold my attention but a friend encouraged me to stick with it as it would pick up in the second half and she was right it did turn out to be uite readable and I liked the ending Not one for my Favourites list but a book that was worth reading even if I did struggle through it

Whisper Network

Idden away by those in chargeBut the world has changed and the women are watching this promotion differently This time when they find out Ames is making an inappropriate move on a colleague they aren’t willing to let it go This time they’ve decided enough is enoughSloane and her colleagues’ decision to take a stand sets in motion a catast. The Whisper Network by Chandler Baker is a 2019 Flatiron Books publication A scathing darkly humorous novel of suspense When the CEO of Truviv Inc dies suddenly his probable replacement Ames is a man who has been the subject of whispers amongst female employees about his dubious treatment of women His possible promotion has placed four women in particular on edge Sloane Ardie Grace and Rosalita have each had a relationship of sorts with Ames over the years Knowing his proclivities they decide to prevent him from adding another notch on his belt by protecting the newest female hired at the company from his advances However their plans seem to have gone awry I ve had this book on my TBR list for over a year I m still trying to find books that will take my mind off the headlines which means I m not always grabbing the newest releases any This book had an interesting premise so I plucked it out of the middle of the pile and thankfully it was a good choice This book challenged me enough to hold my attention from start to finish One reason why the story was able to distract me so thoroughly was the author s unusual presentation which apart from using traditional dialogue depositions interviews and other devices are employed to further the story along This approach kept me guessing and on my toes One small downside is that while the book is a mystery and can be suspenseful at times it s not a thriller in the traditional sense The pacing in not overly brisk and there is very little action It s of a story that delves into various issues women cope with in and out of the workplace both in the past and the present While acknowledging some progress the challenges women face is a constant battle with lots of room for improvement It is also a lesson on how to recognize the signs of harassment and bullying to prevent future generations from experiencing the same treatmentAn added bonus for me was the setting Dallas Texas which is within driving distance from my location and so I am pretty familiar with some of the landmarks mentioned The book is spot on in many ways and definitely depicts the need for a MeToo movement It is certainly thought provoking and I think many women can relate to these characters in one way or another understanding the pressure to look and behave in a certain way as well as the subtle and not so subtle forms of harassment that cause so many conflicted emotions and even guilt The dialogue is witty sharp snarky and occasionally laugh out loud funny The characters develop nicely and the format is fresh and uniue Overall this is a timely and relevant story that tackles heavier issues in a stylish and entertaining format 4 stars

    By whispering whose secrets were we keeping anyway ours or theirs? Whose interests did our silence ultimately protect? we grew tired of whispering because what were we hiding after all? We had stories all of us Would speaking up cost us? Maybe But maybe it would cost them too So while this book definitely speaks to an important and timely issue for women I simply did not love how it was executed here It's bi
