The Hating game : a novel
By Sally Thorne
Lucy and Joshua hate each other. Lucy can’t understand Joshua’s uptight approach to his job. Joshua is clearly baffled by Lucy’s overly bright clothes, quirkiness, and Pollyanna attitude. Now that they’re up for the same promotion, their battle of wills has come to a head. A funny and romantic workplace comedy by this Australian debut author.
On Turpentine Lane : a novel
By Elinor Lipman
At thirty-two, Faith Frankel has returned to her claustro-suburban hometown, where she writes institutional thank-you notes for her alma mater. It’s a peaceful life, really, and surely with her recent purchase of a sweet bungalow on Turpentine Lane her life is finally on track. A screwball romantic comedy for our era – funny , poignant, and a little bit outrageous.
