9780060096687: Behaving Like Adults: A Novel

Meet Holly, the sunny twenty-nine-year-old owner of Girl Meets Boy, a dating service for those who are "beautiful inside and out." Though she's a successfulmatchmaker, she hasn't quite fulfilled her own relationship dreams (her ex-fiancÚ, Nick, seems unlikely to progress from his job as Mr. Elephant, children's party entertainer). So when her friends dare her to pick a man off the top of the pile, she's game.

But in one awful evening, the seemingly perfect Stuart turns out to be a completecad, and Holly's belief in the goodness of humanity takes a hit. What does it mean for her business and her romantic future if she can no longer trust her ability to read people? Holly's friends and colleagues are drawn into the complicated drama of her life, while Holly learns her most important lesson: to trust herself.

Rueful and hilarious, Behaving Like Adults is a must-read novel of men and women growing up -- in spite of themselves.

From the Inside Flap:

A delightful mix of heart-breaking and humorous -- from the bestselling author of Running in Heels.

Holly runs a dating agency. Up to now she?s had no need of her own services, but, convinced her relationship with her fiancÚ Nick has staled, she turfs him out to go in pursuit of hearts-and-flowers romance, true love and the soul-mate she is convinced must exist. To get back into practice, she accepts a date with the hugely eligible Stuart. Rich, arrogant and charming, he?s not her type at all -- he?s her guinea pig. But Stuart rather likes Holly and he?s used to getting his own way. Much to her dismay, Holly finds Stuart won?t take no for an answer and suddenly things don?t look so easy.

From the Back Cover:

“Moving, without being sentimental, riotously comic without being superficial.” -- Daily Express

“Funny and inspiring, you’ll be turning the pages until the small hours.” -- Company
