Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jane Fortune's fortunes have taken a downturn. Thanks to the profligate habits of her father and older sister, the family's money has evaporated and Jane has to move out of the only home she's ever known: a stately brick town house on Boston's prestigious Beacon Hill. Thirty-eight and terminally single, Jane has never pursued idle pleasures like her sibling and father. Instead, she has devoted her time to running the Fortune Family Foundation, a revered philanthropic institution that has helped spark the careers of many a budding writer, including Max Wellman, Jane's first—and only—love.

Now Jane has lost her luster. Max, meanwhile, has become a bestselling novelist and a renowned literary lothario. But change is afoot. And in the process of saving her family and reigniting the flames of true love, Jane might just find herself becoming the woman she was always meant to be.

Jennifer Kulman, July 27, 2007 (view all comments by Jennifer Kulman)
Just read the summary above and you won't have to bother reading the book. No surprises here, an ending we all see coming. And the characters are written in such an obvious way, so the readers are all supposed to be pulling for Jane, the main character.

Oh, Jane, she might be dull and not as pretty as her sister, but she's dependable. Wait, what's this! Jane is losing weight and getting her hair cut. Buying new clothes. She's a stunner! And she might get the guy after all. Geez. Very predictable in an insulting way.
