Contemporary Chick Lit | Romance Chick-Lit

Holly Bishop is experiencing her very worst happily ever after. At 25 years old, she finds herself divorced after only 10 months of marriage. Jean-Marc, her romantic ideal, has ridden off into the sunset, telling Holly that he doesn't love her "in that way" anymore.

Now she's starting over in San Francisco with an entry- level job at City Events. Putting her past firmly behind her is proving impossible, though, and matters are not helped by having a gorgeous boss, Olivia, who's determined to put Holly back in the dating scene again. A series of "frog princes" follow as Holly attempts to take charge of her own life. Somewhere in the middle of surviving "after marriage" life, Holly begins to reinvent herself while discovering that she is an interesting person who can create her own future.

Jane Porter has a fresh and lively writing style that is a pleasure to read. This book reveals the story of a real woman in today's world with humor and truth. It is most definitely the reader who gets the happily-ever-after with Ms. Porter's writing! She's a rising star, so make note of this author.

SUMMARY

Holly Bishop is the proverbial, small-town good girl. She always follows the rules, thinks of others first, and she never, ever makes mistakes. Until she marries the man she thought was her Prince Charming, who confesses on their honeymoon that he’s not sexually attracted to her.

Now, 14 months later, Holly’s marriage is in the toilet, along with her self-esteem. Determined to start over, she moves to San Francisco, where she must navigate the landmines of dating in the big city.

In the shadow of the Golden Gate and amid a population of wacky Bay Area eccentrics, Holly will discover that nice girls don’t always finish last. In fact, they sometimes end up with everything they’d ever wanted.
