There’s something eating Jane Spring. At thirty-one, she has everything a woman could ask for and seemingly everything a man could long for—great legs, brains, rising star status in the Manhattan D.A.’s office—but she just can’t find a man who’ll fall madly in love with her. Men are always lining up to ask her out, but for some reason no one wants a second date.So Jane resolves to change her tack, but what is it that men really want in a woman? One snowy night while watching a Doris Day marathon on cable it hits her: Doris Day always got her man. Trading her nondescript black pantsuit for petal pink Chanel and pearls, Jane dyes her hair, stops cursing, softens her voice, paints her nails—even her apartment—and embarks on a fun-filled journey to find the smart, sweet, gorgeous, capable, ambitious, courageous, loving, adoring, hard- working man of her dreams.Sharon Krum’s magical and funny novel is the story of a driven young woman who must shed her rough exterior and embrace her inner ultra-femininity in order to truly find herself and, eventually, true love. The Thing About Jane Spring is a delightfully light and lively romp sure to charm readers all summer long.
