Mrs Reese is Josh's secretary and has been with the company since Josh's father started it over forty years earlier. She's a very formal, and formidable, woman.
A few months after starting, a serious incident at work makes Hannah look like an incompetent fool. I won't tell you what happens (after all I don't want to spoil the fun of reading the book!). She suspects Mrs Reese is behind it. She can't prove it exactly but there's much circumstantial evidence.
Given that Josh thought that Hannah was doing a great job, how should Hannah handle the situation? Please take a moment to vote in the poll, and let's discuss in more detail in the comments.

POLL RESULTS: Don't be rash. That's your advice to Hannah. Tempting as it may be to blast off at Mrs Reese, or complain to Josh, Hannah will summon her strength to stay sensible about this one.
HANNAH SCREWS UP ROYALLY AT WORK AND THINKS HER COLLEAGUE HAS SET HER UP (BUT HAS NO HARD PROOF). WHAT DOES SHE DO?
Confront her colleague - she'll leave Hannah alone if she knows she can't be pushed around (34%)
Tell her boss her suspicions - she can't risk him thinking she's a failure
Keep quiet and amass more evidence - throwing accusations around will make her look silly or worse (66%)
