Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Marci Thompson always knew what life would be like by her 30th birthday. A large but cozy suburban home shared with a charming husband and two brilliant children. A celebrated career as a writer, complete with mahogany shelves and a summer book tour... Instead, Marci lives alone in 480 square feet of converted motel space next to a punk rock band, hundreds of miles from her friends and family. She works in a temporary accounting assignment that has somehow stretched from two weeks into nine months... Thirty is not at all what it is cracked up to be. Then the reappearance of an old friend with whom she had made a drunken marriage pact ten years earlier opens a long-forgotten door "-- Provided by publisher.

    In this charming cross between romance and chick lit, Marci Thompson is unhappy with the fact that, with her thirtieth birthday approaching, she is single, living in a studio apartment, and working a temp job. Oh, and having an affair with her married boss. When her boss reveals he can't leave his wife because she's pregnant, Marci heads back home to Atlanta, where her old group of friends, including the handsome Jake, is waiting for her. Jake is ready to pick up where they left off—he still has the signed bar-napkin agreement that declares Marci will marry him if they are still single when they hit the big 3-0. But Marci's been stung too many times and is full of anxieties. As the two of them tentatively approach love—even going as far as getting engaged—Marci realizes this is not a game, and it's time to grow up. Pullen's characters are realistic, and the dialogue is funny, making this an excellent choice for fans of early Jane Green, Jennifer Weiner, and Emily Giffin. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

Author Notes

MANDA (M.J.) PULLEN, former therapist and marketer, is the author of complex, funny contemporary romances, including The Marriage Pact. She was raised in the suburbs of Atlanta by a physicist and a flower child, who taught her that life is tragic and funny, and real love is anything but simple. She has a weakness for sappy movies, craft beer, gossip, and boys who talk baseball. After traveling around Europe and living in cities like Austin and Portland, she returned to Atlanta where she lives with her husband and two sons.
