A propulsive thriller about secret organizations, hidden agendas, and the lengths one woman will go to reclaim her life (Laura Dave, author of Reeses Book Club Pick The Last Thing He Told Me) from USA TODAY bestselling author Catherine McKenzie. At thirty-nine, Nicole Muellers life is on the rocks. Her once brilliant law career is falling apart. She and her husband, Dan, are soon to be forced out of the apartment they love. After a warning from her firms senior partners, she receives an invitation from an exclusive womens networking group, Panthera Leo. Membership is anonymous, but every member is a successful professional. It sounds like the perfect solution to help Nicole revive her career. So, despite Dans concerns that the group might be a cult, Nicole signs up for their retreat in Colorado. Once there, she meets the other women who will make up her Pride. A CEO, an actress, a finance whiz, a congresswoman: Nicole cant believe her luck. The founders of Panthera Leo are equally as impressive. They explain the groups core philosophy: theyre a girls club in a boys club world. Nicole is all in. And when she gets home, she soon sees dividends. Her new network quickly provides her with clients that help her relaunch her career, and a great new apartment too. The favors she has to provide in return seem benign. But then shes called to the congresswomans apartment late at night where shes pressed into helping her cover up a crime. And suddenly, Dans concerns that something more sinister is at play seem all too relevant. Can Nicole extricate herself from the group before its too late? Or will joining Panthera Leo be the biggest mistake of her life?

3½⭐Almost a Pick...but not quite
You could call it a slow burn or you could call it boring and there were times when both of these were actually true. It reminded me too much of The Collective which I also had mediocre feelings for. Only the last 10% was exciting, especially since I didn‘t see that twist coming at all…it stepped up this 3-star story to a 3 and a half stars.

This book was much too long — but an interesting concept.

This legal-ish thriller drawing from the #MeToo movement makes for an exciting and intricately plotted read. Lawyer Nicole has followed the plan for her law career & when it‘s suddenly de-railed, a women‘s networking group appears to give her the lifeline she‘s needed… but is her husband right that it sounds cultish? A genuine pageturner, this kept my attention from start to finish! I think there‘s a lot here that could lead to lively discussion!

I got halfway through and kind of paused on this one, not because I didn't like it but because I missed a lot important plot points on the audiobook. I will return to it soon and leave a review!

I enjoyed this one and found I could not put it down, but the ending is quite complicated and maybe not the best to read in the wee hours of the morning. I had to reread the last couple of chapters today to really understand what happened. That being said it was a fun, riveting thriller about the need for women's networking to balance the 'old boys network'. If you are into thrillers, the law and women's issues, this one is worth a try. 4/5

1. Only 15 pages in, so..... 5⭐ 😂
2. The Storyteller by Dave Grohl. Hands down, best memoir I've ever read to date.
3. I am grateful for being alive. Every day above ground is a good day.

Oh man, this was a great thriller with a million twists until the very last page! Nicole fears losing her job as an attorney when she‘s told her billing hours fall short of expectations. Coincidentally, she is invited to Panthera Leo, a group of women who vow to always stick together and empower each other in the face of the male patriarchy. Sound too good to be true? Of course! I adore McKenzie‘s novels!
