Publisher's Summary

For Nina Askew, turning 40 means freedom - from the ex-husband whose career always came first, from their stuffy suburban home. Freedom to have her own apartment in the city, freedom to focus on what she wants for a change.... And what she wants is something her ex always vetoed: a puppy. A bouncy puppy to cheer her up. Instead she gets...Fred. Overweight, smelly, and obviously suffering from some kind of doggy depression, Fred is light-years from perky. But for all his faults, he does manage to put Nina face-to-face with Alex Moore, her gorgeous, younger downstairs neighbor.
Alex looks great on paper - a sexy, seemingly sane, surprisingly single E.R. doctor who shares Fred's abiding love for Oreos - but a 10-year difference in age, despite his devastating smile, is too wide a gap for Nina to handle.
Ignoring her insistent best friend, some interfering do-gooders, and the ubiquitous Fred - not to mention her suddenly raging hormones - Nina thinks anyone but Alex would be a better bet for a relationship. But the more silver-haired stiffs she dates, the more she suspects it's the young dog-loving doctor she wants to sit and stay!

Jennifer Crusie knows how to have fun

I had read "Fast Women" because is was on sale and very entertaining. So I thought I would try another by this author. what a great story with lots of laughs.
The narrator did a great job. I understand that some of the narrators for Ms Crusie books are not as enjoyable. I suggest a listen before purchasing.
I enjoyed this one very much and recommend

Susan Ericksen Rules

Listen to anything that she reads! She's amazing!
The book was good... funny at parts, REALLY funny at other parts!
I enjoyed it! A nice "fluff" book for when I just don't feel like remembering names or dates or trying to figure out who the killer might be!
