Genre: Mainstream, Chick lit
Ellie Winters became a lawyer to please her father and now pays the price by working in litigationand hating every minute. When not dealing with office politics, she caters to her demanding little pug, Sally, tries to avoid her dysfunctional family and worries about being nearly 30 and still single.
When she botches her home hair color one night, she takes Sally to the store in search of a remedy. An amorous male dog tries to show Sally his affection, while Ellie becomes smitten with his owner, a good-looking, much older man who just happens to be respected television newscaster Ted Langston. The attraction is mutual, but their age difference threatens to put the kibosh on their budding relationship. For the most part, Ellie is passive and non-confrontational, and the way she deals with a malicious co-worker, her lovesick best friend and Ted's ex-wife is frustrating.
However, this is still one heck of a refreshing, fun chick-lit novel, thanks to Sally the pug and the May-December romance. (Oct., 352 pp., $10.95)
