"Sparkling and witty ..." - Publishers Weekly. What do you do when your life isn't living up to your dreams? When the man you love is unavailable, and yet you long for a family, a home? What is the cost of compromising until the real thing comes along? Patty Ann Murphy says she's "Ms. Runner-Up" in life. She longs to be married and have a family, but is irresistibly drawn to the wrong man. Patty's frustration leads her to feelings she doesn't admire - jealousy of her beautiful friend Elaine, for instance. Patty longs more and more for the consolation of loving and being loved - until she can wait no more.

Patty’s biological clock is ticking loudly and likely partners few and far between. In this funny, heart-warming story the author lives up to her reputation for brilliant insight into the human condition.

I enjoyed this book. It was an easy read. I finished it in two days. It's about a woman who is hopelessly in love with her gay best friend. She wants a family more than anything, but can't seem to find Mr. Right. There were definitely some aspects to this book I could relate to.There were also a few parts in the book that pulled on my heart strings. I would recommend this book.

Light read, I like this author's easy style. It wasn't too difficult a subject, somewhat predictable but entertaining.
