Is That a Moose in Your Pocket?by Kim Green
Synopses & Reviews
This irresistible debut traces a cosmopolitan young woman's transition from the sleek city streets to the untamed wilds of Montana...and hits every hilarious bump along the way. Despite her maddening family and muddled dating history, thirty-something editor Jen Brenner's life still looks good on paper--she has a hip job, a rent-controlled apartment, and a troupe of supportive friends in San Francisco. But when she's passed over for a promotion at work, Jen finds herself reconsidering city life--and imagining a milieu where straight men aren't on the endangered species list. Faster than you can say latte d$oppio, Jen has ditched her urban life in the City by the Bay for a job as an investigative reporter...in Meredith, Montana. In a world where bears outnumber humans and the supply of attractive, available men in Wranglers is seemingly endless, this city slicker is in for a taste of Western justice--to say nothing of her investigation of a possible environmental crime at the local mill. Will she end up with her attractive but irresponsible ex? The dangerously hunky (but still-married) father of a ten-year-old? The nice Jewish lawyer that any mother would love? Readers will cheer as this lovable new heroine embarks on her search for happily-ever-after.
Passed over for a promotion at work, cosmopolitan editor Jen Brenner abandons her hip job, supportive friends and rent-controlled apartment in San Francisco to take a job as an investigative reporter in Meredith, Montana, a region where bears outnumber humans and populated by a host of attractive, single men. Original. A first novel.
After being passed over for a promotion, and currently between boyfriends, thirtyish Jen Brenner figures its time for a major life change. So it’s goodbye to San Francisco and her sexy ex-boyfriend—and howdy to roughing it in the wilds of Montana.
As a reporter for Montana’s Meredith Gazette, Jen is suddenly getting cruised by park rangers and interviewing ranchers who think crme brlée is men’s hair gel. Then she meets a rugged western vision in jeans and snakeskin boots: EPA agent Bruce Mortensen. So what if he has baggage—a manipulative soon-to-be-ex-wife and a jealous ten-year-old daughter? He’s a real man who’s making her feel like a real woman for the first time in her life.
But is it really love or just the hottest sex ever? Jen’s on a mission to find out...especially when her ex comes back into the picture. Now she’s caught between two men who couldn’t be more different. And what happens next will surprise everyone—even her...
