“A version of Manhattan that’s as fun and original as . . . Sex and the City’s . . . sharp, candid insights about the plight of the modern woman” (Diana Spechler, author of Skinny).
With the big 4-0 staring her down, Maggie Piper can’t stop thinking about her less-than-perfect love life. The fear of a slow metabolism, wrinkly skin, and a ticking biological clock leaves her torn between a desire to settle down and concern her existing relationship isn’t all that perfect. So, she pulls a “Ross and Rachel”: A spontaneous request for a temporary break from her live-in boyfriend that quickly results in a breakup. Now Maggie is single once again—only twelve months from Lordy, Lordy, look who’s forty.
As she re-enters the New York City dating jungle, suitors present themselves quickly. But who’s The One? Speed-dating bachelors, a sexy coworker, or the man she already set free?
How does she 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.
“Chick lit with depth. Fun story with a lovable main character . . . 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
