"Mom Con" by Karl Fields...
What is this novel about?
A little confidence goes a long way.
"Meet Anita Henry, a hard-working, single mom trying to launch her own business after losing her job. To top it all off, her ex-employer is suing her for stealing company secrets.
Corporate espionage? Please. Her single greatest offense was a high school fashion felony. But when a shady court ruling forces Anita to cease and desist, she's determined to get revenge.
There are two ways to get money: you can take it or someone can give it to you. Thanks to an elaborate nightclub scam, Anita’s old boss is about to hand over a small fortune. That is, if Anita’s lazy brother, her deadbeat ex-husband and a sketchy music manager don’t bring the whole thing down first."
What I thought about this read....
I will say simply I loved reading the novel "Mom Con." When I first started reading I didn't know what to think but as I was running through it I will say this author did a wonderful job with presenting this well written script to his readers. You know when you are down and out as you will find from the read of these three ladies especially one ...what is there to do...pull yourself up and do what is best for you that is what these ladies did in order to take control and get back what had been taken from them. When you think about it after you pick up this wonderful read this can and does happen to a lots of people. It was fun just seeing how "Anita Henry turned the tables on the ex-boss who tried to steal her business, banking a cool six figures in the process." What can you do about it other than take control of your life and move on. This author really presented the reader just with that thought...so, will this employer get away with it? I found a lots of humor in a lot of what was going on and I liked the flow of this story and how it turned out. I love this thought..."There are two ways to get money: you can take it or someone can give it to you." Now, you add to this main story...not only a ex employer presenting problems on to a "lazy brother, a deadbeat ex-husband and a sketchy music manager" and you have a good story that will continue on from this novel to the next one from this author...'Mom Con: A Tangled Web.' Would I recommend? YES!
