I have wanted to read A Window Opens by Elizabeth Egan for a long time. It has cropped up in book list for 2015 over and over. Alice Pearse looks like she has the perfect life – lawyer husband, three children, part-time job at a magazine reviewing books – until her husband tells her he hasn’t made partner and quit. Alice is forced to look for a “real” job and finds work at Scroll, a company designed to upend the book world. I read that this is a veiled look at Egan’s own history, but I can’t confirm that. Either way, it was an enjoyable and light read. Perfect for the beach and quick.
