Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

In Office Hours is a smart, funny, head-shaking look at the shady side of the corporate street and the behavior of those who inhabit it.” Booklist
“Kellaway manages a consistently funny tone as her characters handle romantic fallout in generation-appropriate fashion and confirm what they already know: too often, it’s the woman who pays the price.” Publishers Weekly
