"Honest, timely, and completely thrilling." —Reese Witherspoon (Reese's Book Club x Hello Sunshine book pick)"Part page-turning thriller, part smart examination of the #MeToo movement, part feminist rallying cry...Whisper Network is the satisfying "beach read" we've earned."—The Daily BeastSloane, Ardie, Grace, and Rosalita have worked at Truviv, Inc. for years. The sudden death of Truviv's CEO means their boss, Ames, will likely take over the entire company. Each of the women has a different relationship with Ames, who has always been surrounded by whispers about how he treats women. Those whispers have been ignored, swept under the rug, hidden away by those in charge. But the world has changed, and the women are watching this promotion differently. This time, when they find out Ames is making an inappropriate move on a colleague, they aren't willing to let it go. This time, they've decided enough is enough. Sloane and her colleagues' decision to take a stand sets in motion a catastrophic shift in the office. Lies will be uncovered. Secrets will be exposed. And not everyone will survive. All of their lives—as women, colleagues, mothers, wives, friends, even adversaries—will change dramatically as a result. "If only you had listened to us," they tell us on page one of Chandler Baker's Whisper Network, "none of this would have happened.""Exciting and sprinkled with razor-sharp insights about what it is to be a woman today, Whisper Network is a witty and timely story that will make you cheer for sisterhood."—Liv Constantine, USA Today bestselling author of The Last Mrs. Parrish

This "#metoo" inspired novel will appeal to readers of Liane Moriarty with it's mystery elements and middle-aged mom lead characters. Unfortunately, it lacks the light humorous touches of Moriarty's works.

Wow! I too was hooked right away, as the previous reader mentioned. I was glued to this book, and almost missed my stop on the T. :) I actually almost didn't read it because I like to read to escape life and many other reasons....but at the last minute, i changed my mind, and so glad that I actually did read it!

This was fantastic, I was hooked from the first page. I loved the characters and the portrayal of sexual harassment and what it's like to be a woman in the workplace. Everything felt very real and I really enjoyed all the twists in the plot.

I liked this book and found it a page-turner. However, I eventually tired of the whining, especially when they complained about so-called sexism that I didn’t find objectionable. But I broke into 2 men’s fields in the 1970s so learned to pick my battles.

While there are parts of the plot that are unrealistic, I found the overall message to be very thought provoking. I found myself actually thinking about how young I was when I was first sexually harassed and then how this is a common (too common) fact for all women. I do mean all women, not just some, and that made me very sad. It certainly provides fodder for further conversation on how we can support fellow women in the workplace in seeking equitable treatment and a safe harbor.

Described as a thriller for the #metoo generation, Whisper Network is set at a sports apparel company. The CEO has just died and the company's top attorney is poised to become the new CEO. Unfortunately he is a serial sleazebag. The story focuses on 5 women who work at the company and how they navigate the situation. There is also a spreadsheet of BAD men circulating similar to one that really existed in which businesswomen exposed men who had sexually harassed them.

I enjoyed this book, but I agree with another reviewer who said that the way the book got me to think about things was superior to the plot and characters. As well as the #metoo stuff and the inner lives of the women, I thought it did a good job of giving us a glimpse at the men's rights anti-#metoo mentality and why it is so dangerous.

The audiobook was read by Almarie Guerra, a new to me narrator. She did a very good job with the material.

This book was a mixed bag for me. The five women we meet all have secrets that are revealed one by one. Some of the reveals made for entertaining plot twists while others seemed a bit convenient and were less than believable. There is a similarity to "Big Little Lies," but this one feels a bit preachy and philosophical -- even cryptic at times. The characters here are too much the same as well compared to the diversity in BLL. This one just tried too hard.
