This was not supposed to happen. Wall Street wiz Jennifer Spencer took the rap for her powerful boss on insider trading charges - barely questioning his assurances that she'd never actually be convicted. Now she's exchanged her Armani suit for an orange jumpsuit, and she's settling in at the Jennings Correctional Facility for Women. And her well-connected lawyer, who also happens to be her fiance, has taken her three-carat diamond ring back - for "safekeeping."
Thinks look grim. But after a rocky start, Jennifer finds herself making friends with Movita, who works in the warden's office, and getting to know her fellow inmates Suki, Cher, and Theresa. Then Movita discovers that as gloomy and run-down as Jennings may be, it might soon get worse - because a profit-minded private company is angling behind the scenes to take it over. If there's anyone who knows about bad deals, it's Jennifer Spencer. And with Movita's street smarts, Jennifer's Wall Street smarts, and Cher's talent for larceny, they're about to make the investment of a lifetime.....

This book started out slow for me and I almost didn't finish it. I am glad that I did. This a well researched story of women in prison. The main character is sent to prison for insider trading. Martha Stewart is even mentioned in this book which was written before she got in trouble and sent to prison for the same thing.
A snob when she went to prison, Jennifer is a different woman when she gets out. She finds out who her true friends are and for once actually has friends.
Great story of overcoming your past and appreciating the little things in life.

Jennifer Spencer, financial whiz, agrees to take the 'rap' for her fiancee Tom on insider trading charges. Tom has agreed to make appeals and get her out quickly and in the meantime she will be at a country club jail. Not so!! Tom is a rat and soon Jennifer, besides being dumped is at Jennings Correctional Facility in an orange jumpsuit. Jennifer is rich, spoiled and self-absorbed.

After a very rocky beginning, Jennifer finds herself on Movita's team along with Suki, Cher, and Theresa. Jennifer starts to learn how to help other people by first getting a guard fired. Upon learning that Jennings is going to be privatized, Jennifer starts to think about making the biggest investment of her life.

This book is a very interesting story about female correctional facilities and turning your life around. Jennifer starts out as a snob and find out what really counts in life and who your real friends are.
