Abstract:

No drama, no problems--that's Tori Carter's idea of the good life. Her tendency to plan everything to the max has made her the most successful event coordinator in the business--and the number one problem solver for her family and friends. But when her perfect fiancé runs off with another woman, he leaves Tori without a Plan B-through-Z ... or any idea what to do next. And now she's dealing with one surprise after another. Her well-meaning friends are delivering a rogue's gallery of bad-news dates. Her demanding boss expects Tori to work miracles with ever-more-impossible clients. And Tori's handsome neighbor Nelson is a chef who turns up the heat in ways she never imagined. Now Tori has to improvise, let loose--and get wise--if she's going to figure out who she is and what kind of happiness she really wants ...

WONDERFULLY ENTERTAINING!

by READERFORLIFE (WorldCat user published 2009-06-01) Excellent Permalink

As a librarian, I read lots of books each month, and I must say that "The Next Best Thing" is the best book that I have read this year so far. GREAT BOOK!
