IN OFFICE HOURS is the story of Stella and Bella, two intelligent working women who each fall for impossible lovers--at work. Kellaway's keen observations on the way in which affairs move from state to state are a sort of masterclass in office love, bringing to life both the excitement of illicit romance and the ridiculousness of business behavior and language with a sharp sense of humor.
IN OFFICE HOURS is intelligent, funny, moving and agonizing, but it's also so painfully reconizable to any woman who has ever worked in an office or ever been in love. Kellaway hits a real nerve with her depictions of how people come to get into the emotional messes that we do and then how very difficult it is to get out again.

Office romance is alive and well at Atlantic Energy, a global oil company based in London. Although petroleum products are no longer the fuel du jour, romantic adventures are enjoying a prominent place on the corporate agenda. Take Stella Bradberry, for example. One of the few female executives at AE, she is quickly moving up the corporate ladder. Despite a cushy salary, a husband of 20 years, and two children, she finds herself embroiled in a passionate affair with her 20-year-old assistant, Rhys. And then there is Bella Chambers, a young single mother who works as a personal assistant at the company and is having an affair with her high-stakes-player boss, James. As these relationships move toward their inevitable conclusions, readers are given a front-row seat to the urgent e-mails, the frantic text messages, and the growing anxiety of two hardworking women who have lost control over their lives and themselves. In Office Hours is a smart, funny, head-shaking look at the shady side of the corporate street and the behavior of those who inhabit it. --Carol Gladstein
