Are you a SARAH -- Single And Rich And Happy?
Hazel Chamberlayne is. She's turning forty. And do you know what? She's excited about it. Successful by her own standards, flanked by a group of magnetic friends, she feels as if life is genuinely beginning for her.
Okay. Hazel would like a man. Though seeing the dregs of relationships every day as a divorce lawyer means she doesn't have much hope in men, much luck with men nor much time to look for them, period. Full stop.
However, when fellow divorce lawyer Joe Ryan appears -- a man ten years her junior, with a longstanding live-in girlfriend -- he challenges Hazel's beliefs about who men are and what they want. And what will make her happy in life. Because this man may be different. May be.

British author Sarah Tucker is an award-winning travel journalist and broadcaster, dividing her time between England and France. This is her third novel for Red Dress Ink.From Booklist:
Hazel is a divorced single mother on the cusp of 40 who has just ended another unsuccessful relationship. Although her career as a divorce lawyer doesn't exactly show Hazel the sunny side of relationships, she's still hopeful about meeting a man. But that doesn't prepare her for meeting him in the form of the firm's newest partner. Joe is a decade younger and in the process of ending a 12-year relationship with his live-in girlfriend, but the sparks between Hazel and Joe are undeniable. And although Hazel tries to tell herself that a relationship with a coworker and a younger man is a bad idea, she isn't convinced. Tucker, author of The Last Year of Being Married (2004), does a lot of telling as opposed to showing--more often than not we see characters sitting around talking about big developments as opposed to seeing them live them--but readers will enjoy the conversational tone of her quick-paced third novel, as well as the dilemmas facing her heroine.
