Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sorry, Dorothy — sometimes your heart's desire isn't in your own backyard.

Head of PR and spokesperson for Lonely Planet travel guides, Jennifer Cox has explored the most remote regions, toured the most exotic terrains, and bonded with people the world over. So how come finding her soul mate in her own hometown of London is a virtual dead end? Certain that the man of her dreams is out there somewhere, Jennifer sets out on the trip of a lifetime, dating her way around the globe — across 18 countries, in 6 months — to find The One.

Around the World in 80 Dates is her fresh, funny, emotionally honest and revealing memoir of her global dating adventures. From the Skate Date in Paris to the High Roller in Vegas, from the Love Professor in Sweden and the Dead Date in Italy to Australia's Penguin Ranger, here is the inside scoop on a bevy of potential partners — a sharply witty and warm hearted true story that will have you breathlessly crisscrossing the international dateline along with Jennifer, to discover where in the world is her Mr. Right.

Review:

"There's a new bachelorette on the scene, only this one is a writer first and a boy-crazy speed-dater second. Cox was the 38-year-old head of public relations for Lonely Planet when she decided to give her usual globe-trotting itinerary a twist: 'Rather than traveling to recover from Mr. Wrong, what if I went traveling to find Mr. Right?' She assembled a 'Relationship Rsum' (listing her own romantic history) and a 'Soul Mate Job Description' (outlining the position she was looking to fill) and distributed them to a global network of 'Date Wranglers,' who then tracked down eligible suitors around the world. Cox met 80 men in 18 countries over a period of eight months — an impressive logistical feat, especially compared to her television counterparts, who never seem to leave their hot tubs. Her dates ranged from bizarre (recalcitrant William, whom she met at the Nobel Museum in Stockholm) to exhilarating (Olivier, who gives her a moonlit tour of Paris), but they were rarely boring. Best of all, Cox's entertaining quest for love gives readers a look at places they may not see otherwise, including Juliet's balcony in Verona and a whimsical theme park in rural Holland. Does Cox live happily ever after? Armchair travelers and diehard romantics will speed through this unique memoir to find out. Agent, Lizzy Kremer at David Higham Associates. (Apr.) FYI: This is Downtown Press's first nonfiction book." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
