Hilarious and heartwarming, this original novel showcases Cabot's amazing gifts for humor and characterization. Set in the vividly described Italian country-side and composed entirely of e-mail and journal entries, the story unfolds in splendid style.

Comic-strip author Jane accompanies eloping pals Holly and Mark to Italy. Also on board is Mark's best friend, the practical and anti-romance Cal, who, despite being best man, intends to talk Mark out of the marriage. When Jane realizes Cal's plan, she vows to stop him from ruining their friends' lives. But Cal proves to be more trouble than Jane imagined—in more ways than one. Then the Italian government gets involved, and it looks like there won't be a wedding after all, unless Jane can convince Cal to agree to her wacky plan.

Full of romance, comic misadventures and characters so real they're practically visible on the page, Every Boy's Got One dazzles and delights. (Jan., 352 pp., $12.95)
