Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Daphne Wells would rather watch the latest episode of Supermodels than have sex with her fiancé, Charlie. After all, she rationalizes, it is part of her job as a curator at the Museum of Television and Radio in New York City to stay on top of the trends. As the reality of her engagement sets in, Daphne turns to her older sister, jet-setting model Billie, for support as she tries to convince herself that schoolteacher Charlie is the one. It's a tough sell, especially after Daphne meets Jonathan Hill, a sexy television producer, who makes her realize that what's missing is passion. As Charlie puts the screws to Daphne about booking a reception hall, she and her sister get swept up in Jonathan's exhilarating lifestyle: after a weekend in the Hamptons with Jonathan, Daphne decides to go after the man of her dreams (read: the rich guy). There are few surprises to be found between these covers, but readers looking for fluffy fare and pleasant, light humor will be sated. (Aug. 1)

From Booklist

Although Daphne Wells is living with a nice young man (in a perhaps too comfortable arrangement), her most intense relationship is with the television set. Yes, she works at the Museum of Television and Radio in New York, but she is also very involved with her own personal TV and the people who inhabit it. Then, when the writer-producer of her favorite show comes into the museum, she feels the shortness of breath and tingles she should be feeling with her fiance. Daphne convinces him to allow her to do a piece about him, and he invites her and her sister, Billie, to his home in the Hamptons. Daphne schemes to bring him and her sister together, thereby freeing herself of Billie's dependence and any confusion she feels regarding her fiance. But things don't sort themselves out the way Daphne wants them to in this very funny tale. And just when it seems that it's all about the laughs, Lehmann switches gears and introduces true poignancy.
