Turning 30 doesn't really bother flat-chested Emma Taylor because she's up for a promotion and suspects that Adam, her marvelous live-in boyfriend who also happens to be her boss, is going to propose. But when she's passed over for the promotion and dumped for an older woman, Emma is suddenly single—and questioning whether she's destined to be a spinster.

She's also homeless and trapped working for Adam and that loser named Lou who got her promotion. More self-conscious than ever about her small bra size, she manages to soldier on with the help of her many good friends, exacts all sorts of revenge on her ex and finds love with the most unexpected person.

This is chick lit at its finest, with a lovable protagonist, engaging plot, great supporting characters (including the requisite annoying family) and lots of romance and humor. (Dec., 320 pp., $13.95)
