Iris is trying to make a new life for herself, but her old life just isn't cooperating. In the middle of her divorce, she moves to New York to take a new job. After a few weeks, though, she is laid off and left single, broke, and lost in the city. When she reluctantly agrees to spy on the husband of her friend's sister, she finds herself in the middle of a madcap romantic comedy. Iris' miscommunications, the obvious plot "twists," and the gay best friend-stylist will seem familiar to any reader of chick lit. However, it's all done with such a light touch that even the predictable is enjoyable. Lipton has a day job as an editor for a fashion magazine, and sprinkled throughout the novel a careful reader will find great tips on hair and makeup. An author's note at the end adds even more helpful hints on how to fix the beauty dilemmas Iris faces throughout. Marta Segal

This book is absolutely ridiculous. I know most chick lit is trite & cliche. But most of it is at least moderately realistic. This is just completely absurd.Published on December 12, 2012 by Heather

I thought it just got off to a slow start but, by just about half way through, it never did grab my complete interest and is in the "pass it on" box, unfinished.Published on April 20, 2009 by Nana
The Good: This story is expertly crafted, giving you just enough details, yet hiding just enough to keep a twist for the end. The characters are likable and mostly relatable. Read morePublished on January 13, 2009 by J. Cain
