But Adam is a player, on and off the field. Lauren knows he's the one, but he doesn't seem to feel the same way about her. If she just waits long enough, though, surely he'll realise how much he needs her?
Then her boss offers her the chance of a lifetime ' a fellowship at the Smithsonian in New York. Lauren has to make some big decisions: The Man or Manhattan?
Not Meeting Mr Right
Alice Aigner is successful, independent and a confirmed serial dater ' but at her ten-year school reunion she has a sudden change of heart. Bored rigid by her 'married, mortgaged and motherly' former classmates, Alice decides to prove that a woman can have it all: a man, marriage, career, kids and a mind of her own.
She sets herself a goal: meet the perfect man and marry him before her thirtieth birthday, just under two years away. Together with her best friends Dannie, Liza and Peta, Alice draws up a ten-point plan. Then, with a little help from her mum, her dad, her brothers, her colleagues and her neighbour across the hall, she sets out to find Mr Right. Unfortunately for Alice, it's not quite as easy as she imagines '¦
'Sassy, intelligent, strong, independent and brilliantly funny' '
Avoiding Mr Right
Peta Tully has found her Mr Right... the only trouble is, she's not sure she's ready to settle down. Not just yet, anyway, so when she's offered a twelve-month contract interstate that just might win her the job of her dreams, she puts her Sydney life on hold, packs her bags and jumps on a plane, leaving her doting boyfriend behind.
Peta takes a voluntary vow of celibacy, but sticking to it proves to be rather hard.
This is Anita Heiss's second book about Peta, Alice, Liza and Dannie, four deadly thirty-something chicks from Sydney's eastern beaches.
