"How far would you go to get revenge on an ex? Would you.... * Send dead roses to his new girlfriend? * Spend a thousand dollars on a psychic hotline? * Try to conjure up a voodoo curse? If any of those ring a bell (and even if they don't), you'll love Ashleigh Prince, the charmingly hilarious heroine of Chrissie Manby's Getting Over Mr. Right. Ashleigh doesn't think she's asking too much-- she just wants a nice, smart, funny boyfriend with a decent job who happens to love her too. When she meets Michael Parker, she finally thinks she's found it. But after two years together, she doesn't seem to be much closer to the dream. And then, out of nowhere, Michael dumps Ashleigh, in the meanest way possible: on Facebook. But, as the saying goes, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Ashleigh is devastated, and she vows to get Michael back by any means necessary. The irrepressibly likable Ashleigh will be every woman's new best friend. She's the heroine willing to go to all of the lengths of revenge that women everywhere have dreamed about, but never have been crazy enough to carry out. Getting Over Mr. Right is a rolicking read, and a fabulous summer beach read"--
