A hopeless unromantic gets a
crash course in love in the fourth
hilarious novel from bestselling
author Anna Maxted
After her disaster of a marriage ends when she is just twenty, Hannah is convinced you have to be out of your mind (or desperate) to tie the knot. And life without a husband at thirty-one is just fine, thank you very much. She has a steady job working as a private investigator (albeit a mediocre one); a devoted boyfriend of five years, Jason; and a wonderful relationship with her dad (it's a shame her mother is such a lost cause). Then, on a romantic weekend retreat to a faux-ancient castle, Jason proposes marriage, leaving Hannah with no choice but the obvious: to turn him down cold.
Much to her horror, four weeks later, Jason becomes engaged to his next-door neighbor, a fine baker and "proficient seamstress." Has Hannah blown her last chance at a solid relationship as her family claims? Jason agrees to give her another chance -- but only if she meets his terms, among them a promise to dust off the many skeletons in her closet.
Brimming with her characteristic blend of humor and heartache, Anna Maxted's Being Committed is a perceptive look at intimacy (and its substitutes), commitment phobia, and the power others have over us....Continua
I am IN LOVE with all books by Anna Maxted; she is a brilliant writer. She appeals to me with her witty comments and sarcastic undertones.

Every book that I have read by her I have enjoyed thoroughly and would recommend to anyone. These are books that you can buy to call your own, they are inexpensive and something you'll want to read over and over again....Continua
