The Booby Trap, by Anne Walker #lovesecrets #TheBoobyTrap

Welcome to the Booby Trap
Romance novel sheds light on stereotyping the modern woman 

Welcome to the Booby Trap, a seedy bar in Everett, Mass. where waitresses' skirts are high, necklines are low, and customers show up for the eye candy.

This is the setting for Walker’s provocative novel, The Booby Trap (Pixel Entertainment/Butler Books, September 2012) in which Harvard Ph.D. candidate Bambi Benson finds the waitresses prime research for her degree in women's studies, and embarks on a mission to go undercover and completely immerse herself in their world. All goes well until handsome local celebrity Trip Whitley enters the scene.

A fun, absorbing read, The Booby Trap was written with a particular audience in mind: Walker's closest friends.

"I wanted my heroine to reflect the many smart, savvy, thoughtful, and driven women in my life," Walker says. “Bambi is a modern-day heroine who values ambition and success in her own career, and also makes time for love.”

I am an avid reader.  I love to read books that flow easy and have a great storyline.  Booby Trap is one of those books.  It has a strong female lead full of wit and humor, it is not a romance novel where the lead is dependent on a man!

The characters are likeable, although Trip is a playboy and Bambi a smart, independent, feminist; they work well together!   Prepare to enjoy this book, it is a fun read that teaches us not to make snap judgements!

As part of this review we were asked to  divulge Something  We Discovered About our Partner, inspired by the book.  I honestly think we learn something new about each other all the time.  Just this week before we were to leave for my conference, we were in an accident with my new car.  Never in that situation, it was nice to see how hubby took control of situation, insurance, getting me a rental car, etc.  all so I could still make it to NYC for my conference.
