Daphne Wells would rather watch the latest episode of Supermodels than have sex with her fiancé, Charlie. After all, she rationalizes, it is part of her job as a curator at the Museum of Television and Radio in New York City to stay on top of the trends. As the reality of her engagement sets in, Daphne turns to her older sister, jet-setting model Billie, for support as she tries to convince herself that schoolteacher Charlie is the one. It's a tough sell, especially after Daphne meets Jonathan Hill, a sexy television producer, who makes her realize that what's missing is passion. As Charlie puts the screws to Daphne about booking a reception hall, she and her sister get swept up in Jonathan's exhilarating lifestyle: after a weekend in the Hamptons with Jonathan, Daphne decides to go after the man of her dreams (read: the rich guy). There are few surprises to be found between these covers, but readers looking for fluffy fare and pleasant, light humor will be sated. (Aug. 1)
