7. 'How Hard Can It Be?'
Kate Reddy had to quit her suburban mom existence when her husband decided to quit his job and throw himself into his bicycle hobby - paycheck be damned. Having to carry the family now, Reddy found it's not exactly easy for a 49-year-old to hop back into work, so she knocked a few years off her age, creatively embellished her resume, and got to work. 

She got a job at the very hedge fund she founded decades ago, and then goes on to do a delicate juggling act of proving herself at work, not letting anyone remember who she actually is, and trying to avoid past feelings when an old flame pops up. But even as madness ensues, Reddy is convinced it will all be fine.
