I recently read this book on long flight to LA.
I have to say that I was not expecting that much,
but this book was a bit deeper than the average
chic-lit. The flight flew by, and I really enjoyed the book!

Enjoyable Chick lit. Curnyn enfuses her characters with a believable vunerability. In this story, Grace Noonan is a single woman working for an upscale cosmetics firm in New York City. Realising suddenly and painfully that her current boyfriend is not interested in a permanent future and feeling a surprising yearning for a child, the story starts with her breakup. Grace moves on quickly, as she has developed a wall of protection over the years and an ability to make pre-emptive strikes - breaking up with her boyfriends before they can break up with her. This wall has grown because of a string of men who have an interest in having her their bed, but not in their lives. On top of that, she is adopted, searching for her real mother, who has not replied to her letter asking to meet. There is a little more depth to this character than some others in chick-lit. A sequel to "Engaging Men", though it can be read alone without having read the first one.

I started reading this book on Friday evening and couldn't put it down. The writer had me so engaged, I couldn't stop reading!

Great book! Read it over a weekend, so engaging that I couldn't put it down. Grace is someone almost any single woman can relate to and un-single women will remember just how she feels.

Good fast paced chick lit.

The heroine of this book is a decade older than the typical 20-something chick lit protagonist, and maybe that's why she is noticeably more self-aware and -- well ... mature! -- than the run-of-the-mill poor-little-me whiner. She's happy with the way she looks, she actually eats, and more importantly, she can recognize that her pattern of relationships with men has contributed to her currently-single state. The ending wasn't quite what I was expecting, but in this case, that's A Good Thing.

Nice light chick lit read! Grace Noonan is a 30-something recently single woman and buxom hottie, working in the cosmetics industry. Curnyn writes about her dating woes, workplace issues and finding Mr. Right. Verey fun read!
