In this deliciously witty, delightfully wicked debut novel, Alexandra Carew introduces Cat Wellesley. Unlucky in love, unluckier in everything else, she's about to learn that what goes around, comes around...in the most unexpected of ways...
"Welcome to the bottom. Can I get you coffee or tea?"
If there's such a thing as paying your karmic dues, Cat Wellesley is working off debt from several really bad past lives--like Vlad the Impaler bad. How else could she explain the twisted road that took her from rising entertainment industry hotshot through a humiliating break-up with her boyfriend to a lowly temp job at a boring London investment firm? Stuck in the going-nowhere-fast lane, Cat's only escape lies in juicy office gossip with her co-workers and steamy private fantasies where her gorgeous boss plays a starring role.
"On the bright side, my horoscope says I've got nowhere to go but up."
Determined to turn her luck around, Cat is searching her horoscope, phone psychics, self-help emails, and the universe itself for signs to a better career and a possible Mr. Right. And just when things can't get any more confusing, along comes a man Cat thought she'd left behind--and a chance to get ahead that could be her salvation or her undoing.
"If you're unlucky in love, aren't you supposed to be lucky at something?"
Now, in a hip London world of fast-paced business deals, sexual misconduct, missed opportunities and chance meetings, Cat's high-flying past is about to collide with her out-of-control present, and the happiest of accidents might just be waiting around the next corner...
