Booklist Review

At 32, Diana Christopher is not where she wants to be. Overweight and lonely, she hates her waitress job and is tired of being nagged by her mother about her weight. Diana's only friend is her 93-year-old neighbor, Mrs. Bartle, who is always ready with a plate of cookies and good advice. After a cancer scare turns out to be a false alarm, Diana determines to change her life. She starts to lose weight and sets her sights on a sexy pool player at the local bar. And then a guy from her past reappears: Barry, the man she lost her virginity to, who just happens to be Mrs. Bartle's great-nephew. Now divorced and the head of his own company, Barry is a far cry from the irresponsible young man who shared just one night with Diana. Diana and Barry work toward a friendship, but several major setbacks threaten to undo all of Diana's hard work . . and worse. A thoroughly lovable heroine anchors Rech's sweet debut. --Kristine Huntley Copyright 2003 Booklist
