Synopsis (from Amazon): When Jackie's boyfriend announces, out of the blue, that he's outgrown coupledom and is off to Thailand 'to find himself' (and a leggy Claudia Schiffer look-alike), Jackie is struck by a bizarre irony - her (almost) glittering career is devoted to editing romance novels; yet here she is, single again, without even a hint of a meaningful relationship - other than with her TV remote and pizza delivery boy. Undaunted, Jackie does what any smart, self-respecting twentysomething would do - transforms herself into a sex kitten in knee-high black leather boots, and goes looking for Mr. Wrong! Astonishingly, Jackie finds she has a talent for being single in the city. Ditching inhibitions along with her sensible wardrobe, she braves Boston's hippest bars and discovers her true self - and a whole lot more...

One (or more) Sentence Summary: Another great book by Sarah Mlynowski.  Jackie is too funny and love the humor throughout the book. The best part is she finds out what she wants in life and goes for it.  You will laugh a lot while reading this book.  I listened to the book via Audible....the narrator was perfect for the story.

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: I have read so many of Sarah Mlynowski's books.  I don't care if they are middle school, young adult or adult books.  I love them all.  Can't wait for the next one.

Sarah is the author of both the WHATEVER AFTER and MAGIC IN MANHATTAN series, as well as DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT (March 2014), MILKRUN, FISHBOWL, AS SEEN ON TV, MONKEY BUSINESS, GIMME A CALL, TEN THINGS WE DID (AND PROBABLY SHOULDN'T HAVE) and HOW TO BE BAD (along with E.Lockhart and Lauren Myracle). Sarah's short stories and novellas include A LITTLE BIT BROKEN, A NICE FLING IS HARD TO FIND, KNOW IT ALL and CRUISIN'. Sarah also co-edited the bestselling chick-lit collections GIRLS' NIGHT IN and GIRLS' NIGHT OUT and co-wrote the first ever guide to writing chick lit, SEE JANE WRITE. 

Sarah's books have been translated into twenty-one languages and optioned to Hollywood. She was born in Montreal but now lives and writes in New York City.
