Manhattan Dreaming

Anita Heiss

Lauren is a curator at the NAG '€“ the National Aboriginal Gallery in Canberra. She'€™s good at her job, passionate about the Arts, and focused on her work '€“ that is, when she'€™s not focusing on Adam, half-back for the Canberra Cockatoos.

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

Anita Heiss

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'€™ '€“
Deborah Mailman

Avoiding Mr Right

Anita Heiss

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.
