Library Journal Review

DEBUT Twentysomething New York City architectural conservator Alison has just gotten out of the second of her two long-term relationships. Her roommates convince her to join Match.com to meet New York's most eligible bachelors. From a snowboarding lawyer to an undercover agent to a closeted folk singer, Alison navigates her way, date by date, in the digital age. Stauffer joins the ranks of women's fiction writers with this cute debut. While the book doesn't bring anything new to the subject, the characters that Alison encounters are funny in their own right, and keep the story moving. From the Pants Speech to the Three Martini Questions, and all of the text messages and emails in between, readers will follow Alison as she encounters both bad and interesting dates, which may, or may not, lead her to The One. VERDICT A frothy read. This novel will be popular in collections where light chick lit is in demand.-Erin Holt, Williamson Cty. P.L., Franklin, TN © Copyright 2018.
