Vivian Gray is an investigative reporter for a big news company in New York and she is shot during an FBI sting.Viv and her cameraman, Marty Phelps, are hidden in an alley preparing to get the story first. When Viv is shot in the derriere, the whole thing is recorded and ends up on "YouTube."

When she learns CIN is trying to replace her, she quits. She`s not about to train some bleached blond with poochy lips to take her place. Jobless, with her boyfriend working a story in Iran, she discovers she was pregnant. It’s bad enough being the "butt" end of everyone’s jokes, but pregnant at 41 and unmarried is the pits. She takes a job writing a column on suburban lifestyle, under an assumed name.

I could go on and on about this book, but I don't want to give too much away. You can`t help but laugh at some of the antics of Vivian, Melanie, Shelby, and Tripp. In fact, the whole cast of characters is enough to keep you giggling til the last page; a very entertaining book. Look for "Magnolia Wednesdays" in March. This is the first book I have read written by Wendy Wax, but I can guarantee that it won't be the last.
