The Green Ticket by Samantha March: One Year Birthday and a Giveaway!

The Green Ticket by Samantha March 
Paperback, 326 pages
Published December 5th 2012 by Marching Ink 

College junior Alex Abrams scores her dream job at the ripe age of twenty – manager to a successful salon and spa. Thrilled to finally have a real adult job, Alex enthusiastically jumps into the world of schedules, conference calls, and getting a massage when interviewing prospective employees. What she doesn’t expect are the very grown-up issues that comes with a demanding boss. Kevin Dohlman quickly becomes Alex’s worse nightmare – covering up his affairs, dealing with his enormous ego, and trying to protect her female staff from him becomes a full-time job in its own right. Alex has also befriended Kevin’s wife and co-owner, Dani, and is trying to keep Kevin’s secrets hidden from her. The situation only worsens when Kevin starts paying Alex off to make sure she keeps her insider knowledge to herself.

While struggling to keep her wits and stay happy with her new grown-up job, Alex is juggling college courses, a new love interest, and keeping up with her close group of girlfriends. When her roommate and best friend Lila gets offered an opportunity to move to Los Angeles and sign with an agent, Alex realizes her life truly is changing, and everyone around her – including herself –– is growing up. Knowing she is faced with some hard decisions ahead, Alex struggles with keeping her job at Blissful. But does she really want to throw away what she dreamed of as a career – or will the secret-keeping for Kevin become too much to handle? The Green Ticket is a story about morals versus money, and how one young woman navigates the shaky line between the two.
I hosted The Green Ticket and Samantha back on January 1, 2013. Whew! What a way to start the new year! That seems like such a long time ago. And so many books ago. You can read my thoughts about this wonderful story here. 
I also got Samantha to talk about the 'voices' that help (?) her write her stories. You can read her response here.  
I am so happy to have Samantha and The Green Ticket back here at The Book Bag as they celebrate it's one year birthday! And here's to many more stories from Samantha!
