Chick-lit's foremost apologist for the older-than-30-and-still-sexy (Flirting With Forty) targets the ageist banality of TV news and entertainment programs, chronicling the fall of 38-year-old anchor Tiana Tomlinson. "I've achieved far more than I ever expected, but it feels like so much less than I wanted," Tiana realizes as her network begins to nudge her aside for a fresher face. Reading the writing on the wall-and the lines in her face-the feisty journo delves deeper into work and turns to the lifelong friends who protect her even as her romantic and professional lives implode. In a last-ditch attempt to prove her professional chops, Tiana heads to Zambia to film the humanitarian work of hunky plastic surgeon to the stars Dr. Michael O'Sullivan. There's nothing to separate this from the herd of chick lit titles being released this summer: it's as breezy and formulaic as most.
