|Plot Summary of Did You Get the Vibe?|
Kensington, Nov 2003, 12.95, 304 pp.
In Chicago, best friend attorneys Kate Becker and Tracy worry about men, weight, and prestige, but not necessarily in that order. Tracy lives with Tom who she likes and is comfortable with as he is a caring nice individual. However, deep in her heart, confiding only with Kate, Tracy knows he does not set off the vibe in her bones. Kate cannot even find a partner let alone a vibe or two.
Both seek something more exciting in their lives especially since work is awful. They try cyber searching and exchange emails with alleged studs, but nothing lights the vibe that each one wants. So they have eating disorders and share their hurts and worry that this is all there is.
Kate and Tracy are solid lead characters with intriguing flaws while the support cast enables the audience to further see their respective neuroses and fears. However, the story line is 200 proof chick lit, never leaving the crypt of rules for a moment. Thus DID YOU GET THE VIBE is for sub-genre purists who will devour Kelly James-Enger's angst-laden plot, but occasional readers will never feel the vibe.
