Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Have you ever wondered what happened to your first love?

That's the premise of this sparkling new romantic comedy from the author of the acclaimed international bestseller Ralph's Party — an irresistible novel about best friends, turning thirty...and falling in love.

The critics raved about Lisa Jewell's bestselling debut novel, calling Ralph's Party "addictively readable" (The Times, London); "like going to a great dinner party" (The New York Post). thirtynothing brings together a charming quartet of modern men and women in pursuit of sex, love, friendship, and the perfect relationship.

On his thirtieth birthday, Dig Ryan bumps into his first love Delilah, whom he hasn't seen in twelve years. Delilah was the most beautiful girl in school and a constant thorn-in-the-side of Nadine, who has been Dig's best friend for the last fifteen years. Nadine isn't about to let Delilah outshine and outmaneuver her again...which is when she calls her first love, Phil....

A buoyant novel about friendship, lust, growing up, and growing older, thirtynothing is sure to delight fans of Ralph's Party and to win this hip, thirtysomething author a wealth of new readers.

Review:

"Thirtynothing will keep you up all night in a sweaty, addicted reading frenzy....Lisa Jewell has a real gift for creating compelling leading men and women that you recognize enough to believe in....She is a comic writer who makes acute and funny observations about romance." The Times (London)

Review:

"Jewell's latest saucy and slangy love story should entertain audiences beyond the U.K." Whitney Scott, Booklist

Review:

"Like a fizzy cocktail, [thirtynothing] is quickly consumed and sometimes dizzying....Jewell's keen observation of British pop culture is perhaps the best attribute of a book that is fun but never quite intoxicating, and which is burdened by an unimaginative cover." Publishers Weekly
