Three's a crowd -- or is it?
A trio of pals who, on their own, have utterly lost the dating game, decide to team up. They trust each other with their lives; now they've got to trust each other with their love lives. Ruby, Louisa and guy friend Martin do the desperate deed and pen personal ads, sort replies and plan dates -- for each other.
Friends don't let friends settle . . .
Which is why Martin won't let Ruby make her usual mistake of being a just-divorced egomaniac's "transitional lay," Lou is mad to match Martin with a girl with a brain and Ruby is determined to find the blond stranger who captured Lou's eye on the underground one morning.
A hilarious triple blind date at the same restaurant results in one split check, one spark-filled encounter and one very distraught young man handcuffed to a towel rack. But to find true love, the friends realize they've really got to broaden their horizons without losing sight of what's in front of them.
"It's a great idea . . .and Manby's writing more than does it justice." (Marie Claire)
When three best friends find themselves all single and searching at the same time, they decide to tackle their dating dilemmas the same way they approached finding flatmates--by placing personal ads for one another. As responses trickle in they choose each other's dates, and discover that what they actually want doesn't necessarily sound good on paper.
