Kate Jameson has escaped from Brooklyn and her old gang for the high life of Manhattan. Her new best friend is Elliott Winston and his boyfriend, Brice; together the three Gen-Xers judge everyone based on their views of life. When Kate's childhood friend, Bina, is dumped by her almost fiancé, Kate tries to fix her up with "love- 'em-and-leave-'em" Billy Nolan. But life and love go astray, and Kate herself ends up in love. While this "chick lit" has energy and promise, Bernadette Quigley's gravelly voice makes the women sound loud and the men mundane. Her New York accents are disappointingly caricatured. Stereotypes aside, Kate is in for surprises in her new life. M.B.K. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
