Joshua and Lucinda work at the same publishing house and are now up for the same promotion. Since the mergers of their companies, being assistants to the co-CEOs, they have been sitting next to each other and playing games of one-upmanship with each. Now the stakes are higher because of the future promotion.
This was cute. I smiled throughout as I finally saw Lucinda working things out. It is predictable but Lucinda is great. When she finally stands up to someone, I was cheering her on. She was impressive. A great beach read!
