Spotlight and Giveaway: Boss Lady

Alli Frank and Asha Youmans' latest novel, Boss Lady, will be out next week! We're excited to feature it today and Melissa looks forward to reading it soon. Thanks to Over the River PR, we have one copy for a lucky reader!

From #1 Amazon bestselling authors of THE BETTER HALF – a Mindy Book Studio Selection – comes a funny, empathetic novel about a mess of a heroine who is desperate to resolve her past so she can finally rediscover who she was always meant to be.  

Meet Antonia “Toni” Arroyo. Her protective mother has outdated notions for her daughter’s life: employ her natural beauty and marry young. But Toni has wholly different aspirations.

A promising inventor and budding entrepreneur, Toni fights to keep her passions alive as a financially strapped mother of twins with a job in airport transportation services that has her going in circles. One treasured frequent passenger is elderly traveler Sylvia Eisenberg, Toni’s sage but unofficial adviser and cheerleader. When Toni meets Sylvia’s grandson, Ash, a striking venture capitalist, luck just might bend her way.

With a game-changing new business endeavor in development, Toni hustles an opportunity to pitch her idea on TV’s Innovation Nation. Toni’s unexpected challenger? Her very own recently resurfaced, self-aggrandizing not-quite-ex-husband. As Toni’s interrupted past collides with her tenuous future, she is more determined than ever to follow through on her delayed dreams. Toni’s been clinging to “maybe” for so long—it’s finally time for “absolutely.”

“Wepa! A feel-good tale about the power of perseverance, the beauty of diverse women uplifting each other, and the value of healthy relationships! Boss Lady left me inspired to go for it, just like Toni!” 
—Priscilla Oliveras, USA Today bestselling author of West Side Love Story

“Alli Frank and Asha Youmans have written yet another winning novel in Boss Lady—a whip-smart, heartwarming, and all-around delightful look at one woman’s quest for success on her own terms.” 
—Tara Conklin, New York Times bestselling author of Community Board

My last boss was one of my favorite bosses. He never acted like he was better than the girls in the office and always treated us fairly and respected us.

My best boss was a principal named Mike. He was loved by everyone...the students, the parents and the staff. He treated everyone with respect and kindness. He was fair and respectful. I miss him a great deal and learned a lot from Mike!
