"After rebounding from a broken engagement and relinquishing her job in sports PR, the irrepressible Waverly Bryson has a new man, a new career, and a new lease on life. Her part-time gig as an advice columnist has proven to be as entertaining as it is affirming, and her fledgling greeting card line, Honey Notes, is off to a promising start. After a series of disastrous romantic rebounds, she has settled into a long-distance relationship with handsome Jake McIntyre. Things are certainly looking up-- at least, until lingering emotional baggage threatens her love life and her best friends stun her with a pair of shocking announcements. Suddenly, Waverly is faced with being left behind by everyone she loves. And in true Waverly fashion, things must get comically worse before they can get better. It takes forming an unexpected new friendship with an elderly neighbor and meddling in the love lives of two of her coworkers to make 'the American Bridget Jones' realize that although life--before and after thirty--never fails to be messy and unpredictable, friendship and love make it all worthwhile."--P. [4] of cover.

For Waverly Bryson, life is anything but boring! And never is that fact more evident than in Maria Murnane's delightful third novel about the irrepressible heroine. This time around, Waverly faces a game-changing opportunity: an offer to turn her popular advice column into a regular guest spot on the new TV show Love, Wendy. It could be the break of a lifetime--but for a few not-so-minor details. For starters, Waverly's acceptance of the job means moving clear across the country, giving up her rent-controlled apartment, and leaving behind her best friends McKenna and Andie. Oh, and there's the fact that TV host extraordinaire Wendy Davenport is none-too-pleased by the prospect of Waverly usurping her broadcast throne. Then there's Jake, Waverly's boyfriend. He's as crazy about her as ever. His mother, on the other hand? Not so much. But Waverly wouldn't be Waverly if she didn't tackle these challenges head on, with all the zeal, good humor, and, yes, occasional catastrophe that we've come to expect from "the American Bridget Jones."

"After taking New York by storm, Waverly Bryson thinks life can't possibly get any better until her gorgeous boyfriend, Jake, pops the question. Though she longs for a low-key wedding anyone who knows Waverly knows that drama follows her wherever she goes, even down the aisle. Before she can meet the man of her dreams at the altar, Waverly must go head-to-head with his high-society mother, whose vision for their big day isn't exactly meshing with Waverly's. Adding to the chaos is the impending departure of Paige, Waverly's very pregnant retail partner; the addition of a meddlesome new producer to her popular TV show; and the arrival of her best friend, Andie, who's carting one heckuva secret in her carry-on. Now as the clock ticks down to her wedding day, Waverly can't help but wonder: Is her perfect world about to come crashing down? Or can she really have it all?" -- Cover verso.
