|A laugh-out-loud love story from one of England's hippest writers, this deliciously readable novel moves with the speed of a Concorde and introduces an endearing heroine.|
From the Publisher:
After her marriage to Damien ended in disaster, Londoner Josie Flynn -- thirtysomething and single again -- is flying across the ocean to her American cousin's "big mistake" wedding. In her present "love stinks" frame of mind, the last person she expects to be seated next to on the flight is someone like Matt Jarvis. A recently divorced rock journalist, Matt is sensitive, good-looking, and remarkably attentive -- and before their plane touches down, Josie's smitten. So how can she hope to convince her cousin to cut and run when Josie is all ready to leap into love again -- with a stranger, no less, who might be just another Mr. Totally Wrong in Mr. Seductively Right's clothing?
The point is rendered moot, of course, once they deplane and she and Matt go their separate ways. After all, Josie's got prenuptial confabs to worry about and that dreaded lilac chiffon bridesmaid's dress to wear. But Dante himself couldn't have dreamed up the hell this wedding is proving to be -- and when her dream hunk reappears and throws himself into the mix, Josie finds herself wondering how she -- or any unattached modern woman, in fact -- can hope to survive the new romantic rules of the twenty-first century.
Already a bestseller in the U.K., Carole Matthews's For Better, for Worse is a deliriously droll, dead-on tale of marriage, sex, monogamy, and modern love.Still recovering from a lack of self-esteem thanks to her unfaithful ex-husband, recent divorcee Josie Flynn reluctantly heads for New York to take part in the wedding of her American cousin, Martha.
This romantic farce stars Josie Flynn, who has come to New York from London for her cousin's wedding and also to escape her adulterous husband. She immediately meets another eligible man, then loses track of him, and the two seek each other out all over New York in a slapstick comedy of errors. Then Josie's husband shows up, repentant, and his path crosses with that of a suddenly valuable duck....
