At CrimeReads Fargo tagged eight thrillers featuring ambitious women, including:
Pretty Revenge by Emily Liebert

As with [Amy Gentry's] Last Woman Standing, Pretty Revenge proves that vengeance and ambition can go hand-in-hand. Kerrie O’Malley wants revenge on Jordana Peterson, who ruined her life when she was young. Kerrie gives herself a chic makeover so she can con her way into a position at Jordana’s wedding concierge company and, hopefully, ruin her life right back. Like most ambitious women, Kerrie is excellent at multi-tasking: sure, she wants to destroy her enemies, but that doesn’t mean she can’t also kill it in her new career.
