Book Jacket:

It's Bridget Jones meets You've Got Mail for the Christian who loves chick lit!

Not your typical size two chick-lit heroine, Phoebe Grant aspires to the madcap life of a forties-style career gal—she lives in a cool apartment (even if it does need a little work), works at the city newspaper (ok, she writes obits—but she's sure she'll get her dream job reviewing movies), and has a best girlfriend (that would be Lindsey) to play straight-woman to her life's witty script. In fact, aside from a steady stream of laughably bad blind dates, over-thirty Phoebe has a great life—even if her leading man appears to have missed his cue.

But when she loses her job and her mother breaks both arms, Phoebe finds her carefully constructed screenplay being re-written in ways she hadn't planned. And when Lindsey secretly signs her up for an online personals service, the script suddenly becomes a slapstick.

This is a funny, light-hearted look at what it means to be a thirty-something Christian singleton—with all the drama, adventure, and joy that women everywhere will recognize. Two thumbs up!
