Ladies With Prospects
The Larksdale Ladies are back with a solid portfolio of friendships, and, of course, stocks. They’ve made some money. Okay, a lot of money. And now, ten years later, at the height of the tech boom, their investment club is about to witness firsthand the peaks of small-town Silicon Valley—and the valleys.
When Larksdale’s biggest company, PMT Software, is sold to a multimedia giant, locals become instant millionaires. But when the giant proves to be a sham and PMT’s inflated stock tanks, the whole town faces ruin. It’s up to the ladies to save the day.
Along with the business savvy of founding investment club members, there’s the forward-thinking vision of newcomer Callie Brentland. A young engineer for PMT Software, she shines at work—that is, when she isn’t obsessing over sexy renegade programmer Jake Miller. Now, Callie has an idea that will turn the tables on the corporate pirates. Her best friend is working on a brilliant new invention that may be just the comeback weapon they need. The ladies are armed. And their prospects look pretty good.
“Welcome to the Larksdale Ladies Independence Club, where you’re sure to learn as much about friendship as about finances.”—Lynne Hinton, author of Friendship Cake
