It’s being called the You’ve Got Mail for Generation Yoga. If you’re looking for some adventurous and cheeky yoga-infused Chick Lit, look no further than Lucy Edge. Her newest offering, Down Dog Billionaire, is a comedic jaunt down the path of love, loss and your classic tale of one mega yoga studio out to crush the small mom and pop yoga studio. An internal dilemma ensues.
Here’s the official description:
Stuck in Slough, Meg’s going nowhere fast. Boxed in and stitched up, she jumps at the chance to work at Shine – the last word in luxe yoga, complete with cellulite-banishing yoga pants and high-tech mats. She loves putting her brand smarts into action, and her office view of the Gherkin, but when Shine threatens to shut down a small but beloved neighbourhood yoga studio, Meg’s forced to make a choice. Is she to be a buff-bodied, corporate girl, circling the globe and dating her sexy, charismatic boss, or does her heart lie closer to home, with the granola guy up the road and her own soul-fired business? Down Dog Billionaire is a heart-warming comedy of errors for any woman balancing bitchy colleagues, crazy friendships and men being men, with the never-ending temptation of chocolate.
Hitting close to home, this one. If you were a fan of Lucy Edge’s previous books, Yoga School Dropout and The Handbag and Wellies Club, we’ve no doubt you’ll be happy to dive right into this book.
