Lane Silverman was a struggling freelance writer, desperate to sell an article that would pay her rent, when she stumbled upon the pitch of a lifetime: an article about finding Mr. Right in the workplace. She sold the idea to Cosmopolitan, tossed out her PJs, put on a power suit, and became a true-blue working girl on Wall Street. Now, all she has to do is meet a sexy, eligible man in an expensive suit who will find her charming beautiful, and positively irresistible... in two months... A hilarious debut from a exciting young voice, Diary of a Working Girlis more fun than casual Friday...and an insightful look at the things we do for love.

Booklist Review

Lane Silverman is a freelance writer, but most of her work is published in magazines no one's heard of. Determined to make it to the big magazines, she brainstorms for the perfect article to pitch. It's not easy. Lane has difficulty concentrating as her thoughts run where they always run: to meeting her Prince Charming and what she 'll be wearing when she does. Her flighty, romantic nature is what's kept her single. Then Lane comes up with the perfect idea: she'll get a real job with the express purpose of finding a man to live happily ever after with and then chronicle her findings. She's ecstatic when Cosmopolitan likes her idea, and when she lands a job as an assistant for a financial company, she's dumbfounded by the sheer number of men surrounding her. Again, things aren't as simple as she thinks they'll be, especially when she's sidetracked by the perfect man, one who doesn't work at her company! Readers will simply love Lane and her wild imagination. --Maria Hatton Copyright 2004 Booklist
