The Agency, by Ally O'Brien

Odd book. Part chick-lit, part murder-mystery, unlikeable characters, a deus ex-machina cameo from Tom Cruise- it should have been awful, but was somehow kind of fun and rollicking.

"Some bastard is accusing Dorothy of stealing her pandas from his father, Cosima says she'll bury me if I leave, Tom Cruise probably thinks I'm insane, my married boyfriend dumped me, my other boyfriend is a scoundrel, and the police think I killed Lowell."

I don't know about you, but any book that manages to round all that into one sentence has something going for it in my opinion. Good bath book, this one.
