This one line is from Help Wanted, Book 2 in the River's Edge Series.
Sally Atwood seeks a job as a reporter with a cable television company. The big boss speaks:

"Young woman are like unripened fruit not ready yet but you, Sally Atwood, I want you,“ he paused, “on my staff to interview politicians, celebrities, distressed citizens and whatever else comes up and for each job, I’m prepared to pay you one thousand dollars.”

Help Wanted is my seventeenth book with Vanilla Heart Publishing.
