About this title

Synopsis:

Rette. I'd always imagined being the sort of adventurous girl who'd have an affair with a dark-eyed stranger on the Eurail. Instead, I'm getting married, planning the wedding of my mom's dreams, and searching for a dress that can cover my size 14 body without making me look like a toilet paper cover...Jen. Waking up with a searing hangover on a workday? Not good. Waking up to discover you're not alone in bed is ohmygod not good. I'll admit that lately I've been a bit out of control. But I'm going to get it together, I promise. Right after I make that cute guy from IT into my love slave...Avery. Asleep on the couch at ten o'clock - just another Saturday night for me. Maybe there's no such thing as romance. Maybe it's just a concept created by marketing executives to sell perfume, candles, and weekend getaways. Still, hope springs eternal. And it's got to be better than working for a living...right? Against the backdrop of Colorado's majestic mountains, three friends are about to discover that dating can be more fun than a root canal, every job has its silver lining, and who you know may not only take you places - it may give you the best times of your life...

From Booklist:

Alan's debut charts the very different lives of three women--sisters Rette and Jen and their friend Avery--as they bond through work at McKenna Marketing, over drinks at their favorite Boulder pubs, and at fun-filled, gossip-infested sleepovers. Alan does a masterful job of switching between first-person points of view to offer glimpses into each woman's life. Engaged and overwhelmed with her new job and her wedding plans, Rette dreams of loosing 30-plus pounds in time for the big day. Self-absorbed, model-perfect singleton Jen goes through men, martinis, and MasterCards at a dizzying speed and is petrified of being alone. And divorcee Avery longs to find herself and her soul mate, and reawaken her long-dormant passion for dance. As the three women face the trials and triumphs of life, they assist each other in ways that only best friends can--through unconditional love, unrelenting humor, and unwavering support. Reminiscent of Bridget Jones's Diary (1997) and Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood (1996), Alan's is a novel to be savored like a good box of chocolates. Megan Kalan
