From Alisa Kwitney, the acclaimed author of Sex as a Second Language
and The Dominant Blonde,
comes a witty, romantic, and compassionate new novel about an urban working mom who leaves the city only to find her talents are no match for country life.
An accomplished journalist, Zo Goren can't drive and she doesn't cook. But that's never been a problem in Manhattan, where the streets are filled with taxis and takeout restaurants, and a busy single mother can find everything she needs right at her fingertips. In fact, Zo can't imagine living or working anyplace else. But when Zo 's daughter is diagnosed with dyslexia, she decides to make the ultimate sacrifice, moving two hours from Manhattan in order to enroll Maya in an excellent school for children with learning differences. Stranded in a rural paradise, Zo must grapple with isolation, coyote howls, and the lack of good delivery services. But when she decides to overcome her fear of driving and take lessons, she meets Mack, an unnervingly attractive townie, back from the war in Iraq and trying to adjust to civilian life. With a budding new romance and a reporting gig for the local paper, Zo just might survive in the wilderness of small-town America after all.
One of today's best breakout authors, who has been called "witty, charming, funny, and real" by Carly Phillips, Alisa Kwitney creates authentic characters that women love to read about -- and talk about. Zo Goren will have them rooting for her all the way.
