Much to her friends' amazement, Carole Matthews managed to survive her trek to Nepal without the aid of a hair dryer or nail polish. Visit her at www.carolematthews.com.From Publishers Weekly:
A lover's infidelity prompts a homebody toward big adventures and new priorities in Brit Matthews's entertaining romantic comedy. Lyssa Allen works at a baby magazine and is dying for a child of her own, but when successive rounds of IVF fail, her live-in boyfriend, Jake, declares he's had enough. Of course, he's also gotten himself involved with "a nubile twenty-five-year-old with legs like Lara Croft whose urge to go through the motions of procreation is very much in evidence." Poor Lyssa! What will she do? Shack up temporarily with her younger sister, Edie (aka "Rabbit"), who has a whopping six children at 29—and then jet off to Nepal for a trek through the Himalayas. After all, if Jake's new (but sort of slippery and insincere) lady can climb Everest, can't Lyssa hump a pack along a trail? And wouldn't it be nice if her guide were "a vision of manly loveliness" named Dean? Pretty soon Lyssa's contemplating big life changes, even as her old dreams look like they could finally come true. Matthews throws a few wrenches into Lyssa's voyage of self-(re)-discovery, but never leaves any doubt that happiness is around the bend. (Aug.)
