Publisher's Summary

A charming debut novel about a lifestyle maven who learns that living simply isn't simple. Deidre McIntosh became famous teaching women to live simply, and simply live - ironic for a woman who thrives on the chaos of a television career, and shares a home with her best friend, the one man she can count on - who happens to be gay. But when her Seattle cooking-and-lifestyle show gets bumped off the air, and her best guy moves in with his boyfriend, she's left trying to figure out the next segment. Seizing on a chance encounter with an attractive stranger, Deidre accepts his offer to use his country home. She hopes to get away for a while and learn to practice what she preaches. To appreciate life without voice mail. To gain the courage to start again, and take the first slow, cautious steps toward a new kind of success - and maybe even love. It seems like a simple task. But it may be the hardest thing she's ever done...

What good things?

I have not read a novel with such two-dimensional characters caught in such a flimsy, transparent plot in a long time. I don't even like to insult the "chick lit" genre by categorizing it as such. Middle-aged single woman getting by, even making good, by virtue of her own talents, loses her grasp on the good life, and despite acting like a total idiot, ends back up on top, bigger than ever--But this time, with a filthy rich, handsome, considerate man to love her. Oops, did I spoil it for you? Nope, we all saw it coming, every bit.
