Miss Management: Anderson Family Series, Book 2 is a contemporary fiction/new adult novel written by Traci Highland. Mags loved her job; there was something infinitely satisfying about helping stroke victims go from helpless and depressed to singing out loud and proud. They might not have been able to carry a tune very well, but the sheer exuberance and joy they expressed at the effort made her soul sing in response. Too bad Dr. Robbins, Mags’ idiotic and abusive boss, didn’t get it. He had nothing but complaints about the noise her clients made, and, worse, he was a sexual predator who had the clinic’s young intern in his sights. When Robbins went one step too far, Mags responded with a swift punch to his face. While she didn’t regret her hasty and impulsive move -- not one bit -- she did have to think about how she was going to get another job with no recommendation forthcoming from Dr. Robbins. Then her mom told her about a job; it was a bit different, heck, it was a lot different, but just maybe it might be worth a try.

Traci Highland’s contemporary fiction/new adult novel, Miss Management: Anderson Family Series, Book 2 is a fast and often funny second-chance story about a speech pathologist, a veteran with PTSD and a service dog. Highland’s Mag is brash and outspoken, and quick with her fists to boot, and I can’t express the feelings of awe this unlikely heroine inspired in me as I read. I loved the timely issues covered in this story, such as body positivity, the disaster that can be wreaked by well-meaning relatives, and the role service dogs can play in helping veterans adapt to life after service. While this is the second book in Highland’s Anderson Family Series, it reads quite well as a standalone. That said, don’t pass up the chance to read the first one as well -- it’s equally fabulous. Miss Management: Anderson Family Series, Book 2 is most highly recommended.
