ìYou wonít be able to pry your hands off Love Handles. Lauraís fun, breezy style will keep you turning pages and chuckling aloud with laughter.î -Becky Freeman, author of Marriage 911 Laura Jensen Walker is a speaker and breast cancer survivor who loves to find the humor in life.

About the Author

From the time she read 103 books in her first-grade class, Laura Jensen Walker knew she wanted to be a writer. Growing up in the Midwest, she also knew she wanted to see the world. To do this, she heeded Uncle Sam's call and joined the United States Air Force after high school.

By the time she was twenty-three, she'd visited eighteen countries and seen such wonders as the Louvre in Paris, the Parthenon in Athens, and London by taxi. While stationed in Great Britain, she became addicted to antiques, tea with milk and sugar, and any and all things English.

Settling in California after her tour of duty, Walker received a bachelor's degree in journalism after attending college intermittently for twelve years. The recipient of several awards, including a scholarship from the California Newspaper Publishers Association, she's been a copy editor and reporter covering everything from local government to pigeon racing.

As a starry-eyed single Christian woman, Laura longed to be swept off her feet by some tall, handsome, godly man who would propose to her sweetly on bended knee with a look of rapt adoration in his eyes (in some wildly romantic setting, of course!). Well, God did send her a handsome, godly man-just half an inch taller than Laura. And he proposed in his car which kind of eliminates the bended-knee part.

Not exactly the romantic situation she had envisioned. But she recognized true love when she saw it and grabbed it, and has been holding on to it for dear life ever since!

After the success of Dated Jekyll, Married Hyde, she wanted to extend the "delighting in the differences" concept to all romantically impaired men and women both married and single who may have unrealistic expectations of the person they love.

This is a quick, fun read; packed with humorous anecdotes about relationships between men and women. Definitely as funny a book as her first title. Can't wait for the third book!

Laura Jensen Walker has done it again! Never has such truth about the differences between men and women been told. Again and again I was amazed at how much I could relate to. A perfect gift for men and women.
