But then I started thinking about it. Maybe I have learned some things. Maybe I could add something useful to the mix that hadn't been said already. So I emailed my agent to say I would consider it. Then I broke up with my boyfriend. When my agent telephoned to ask why I hadn't responded to his emails, the call went something like this: "You can forget about the book. I can't even write a pamphlet. How in the world am I supposed to give advice when I can't handle my own love life?" In his pep talk, my agent told me the thing I have going for me is honesty. He told me to picture myself in a coffee shop catching up with friends, trading stories, binding each other's wounds, laughing, refocusing, and re-emerging as the women God wants us to be. So I did.

I loved this book Feb 28, 2007
I am 24 and have been through a rough time with trying to understand God's plan for me and why I have to get my heart broken. This book was great, it was upbeat and down to earth and I loved everything. This is a book that got me focused back on the things that I needed to be focused on, God. I would recommend the book to anyone that was went through a broken heart. The book was great and very helpful.
Are These People Insane? Jan 24, 2007
I don't know what book the other reviewers read but it certainly wasn't this book. About half-way through the book I closed it, put it back in it's packaging, and asked this site for my money back...It was just that bad. I don't call myself a singles expert, but I have read plenty of books on the single experience, and this, by far was a joke. The author seemed to have a problem with staying on the subject. She'd begin with a really great point then drift into a story about her friends or some wierd experience she had. It left me literally dazed and confused. I just didn't get it. How did the story relate to the point she was trying to make? At any rate, this book proves the saying once again, never judge a book by it's cover. The cover of this book has some really good key points to draw you in. The inside, however, is a hollow catastrophe.
Great for younger singles Jan 16, 2007
I'm 41 and divorced. This book was not for me.... The audience is really the younger and non-divorced crowd. An 18-year-old friend and a 28-year-old friend LOVED this book, so I thought I'd give it a try. If you're like me, buy "I've Kissed a Lot of Frogs but My Prince Hasn't Come" (or something like that) by Kathleen Hardaway. The "Frogs" book is much better suited for you, if you're a divorced and/or older 40+ single.
The book IS well-written. I agreed with all that Janet wrote, and her style is extremely lively and very conversational -- like she's talking just to you.
Not just another relationship book Sep 28, 2006
I think this is the best book about relationship that I've ever read. The writer writes well, the content of the book pretty light and humorous inside.
