In Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, practical Shelby Stewart and ambitious Astrid Ericcson just want to start their careers in Boston’s PR world and maybe find a nice guy to hang out with. But long-buried memories of a childhood incident keep interrupting Shelby’s plans, affecting her health one way after another. And when will she actually date someone her friends think is good enough for her?
Astrid thinks she wrote the book on How to Get Ahead by Flirting but is forced to re-visit her career advancement strategy when her boss Brad takes the innuendos to a whole new level, threatening her job and her safety.
In this “thought-provoking and entertaining” story, the women reach new highs and lows in life, work and romance, while struggling to make sense of the relationships that haunt them.
