A Heart's Glass Ceiling (previously titled 'Glass Ceilings') - Alicia Hope
Alicia Hope writes executive manoeuvrings with effortless ease -- so I'm guessing she's seen them firsthand. Glass Ceilings was enthralling. Yes, the intro didn't initially hook me, but that's a personal problem I have with the word "smirk" - don't ask! As you learn about Verity and Royce you sincerely want them to get together. The characters are complex -- because real people are.

As a West Australian I truly enjoyed the setting. Also, I grew up near the alumina industry (the industry in the book) and I have vague memories of visiting a worksite on a school trip. It was nice to "see behind the scenes" as an adult.
