“Maggie Piper navigates a version of Manhattan that’s as fun and original as Woody Allen’s or Sex and the City’s. You won’t forget this delightful cast of characters or Schorr’s sharp, candid insights about the plight of the modern woman.” – Diana Spechler, Author of Who by Fire and Skinny
Life doesn’t happen on a schedule, there are no deadlines in love, and age is just a number.
On the eve of her thirty-ninth birthday, Maggie Piper doesn’t look, act, or feel much different than she did at twenty-eight, but with her fortieth birthday speeding toward her like a freight train, she wonders if she should. The fear of a slowing metabolism, wrinkling of her skin, and the ticking of her biological clock leaves Maggie torn between a desire to settle down like most of her similarly-aged peers and concern that all is not perfect in her existing relationship. When a spontaneous request for a temporary break from her live-in boyfriend results in a breakup, Maggie finds herself single once again and only twelve months from the big 4.0.
As Maggie reenters the New York City dating jungle, suitors present themselves quickly, but who is “The One?” Is he a sexy coworker, one of many bachelors at a speed-dating event, or is he the man she already set free? How do you know? Her fun-loving friends and supportive family, including meddlesome “no-filter” Aunt Helen, eagerly share their (often unsolicited) opinions, but Maggie is determined to find her own way, even if she falls on her face—repeatedly.
“Meredith Schorr is an author to watch.” – Tracy Kaler, Founder and Editor of Tracy’s New York Life
“Chick lit with depth. Fun story with a lovable main character. I was really rooting for Maggie to get her head together and enjoyed taking the journey along with her. I love all of Meredith Schorr’s books, and this one didn’t disappoint. I liked that it tackled deeper issues of aging and how it affects society’s outlook on women (read: differently than it affects society’s outlook on men), as well as men’s and women’s outlooks on love. I recommend!” – Stacey Wiedower, USA Today Bestselling Author of 30 First Dates

A born-and-bred New Yorker, Meredith Schorr discovered her passion for writing when she began to enjoy drafting work-related emails way more than she was probably supposed to. After trying her hand penning children’s stories and blogging her personal experiences, Meredith found her calling writing chick lit and humorous women’s fiction. She secures much inspiration from her day job as a hardworking trademark paralegal and her still-single (but looking) status. Meredith is a loyal New York Yankees fan, an avid runner, and an unashamed television addict. To learn more, visit her at www.meredithschorr.com.
