Today I’m on the blog tour for Behind her back by Jane Lythell. It’s the second book of the StoryWorld series, but I still found it easy enough to read without reading the first.
The second StoryWorld novel set in the glamorous, pressurized world of a live London TV station.
StoryWorld is the nation’s favourite morning show, and producer Liz Lyon wants to keep it that way. Her job is to turn real-life stories into thrilling TV – and keep a lid on the cauldron of conflicts and resentments that constantly simmers off-stage.
In this gripping novel of power, rivalry and betrayal, Jane Lythell draws on her experiences of working in the heated world of live TV. Liz Lyon must balance the monster egos at work with the demands of her teenage daughter – and the man she’s just started dating – at home. It’s all in a day’s work.
Office politics at its highest is abundant in this book. We all know that somebody who starts in their new job role and brown noses with the bosses. Doesn’t matter who they step on to get there. This is what is happening to Liz. Liz has a stressful job but want’s to prove to her 15 year old daughter that women can push themselves and get to the top. The new girl Lori you would think would be best buddies with the only other female colleague Liz, but that’s not what happens and Liz has to watch her back.
I like the author’s style in Behind her back, its fresh and I found quite easy going. It left me wanting to see what happens in the next book. I didn’t find it hard to get into seeing that I missed book one, but I think I will head back and give it a read.
I’m giving Behind her back 4 out of 5 stars.
