Baker & Taylor
The romantic relationship between Elise, a graduate student in D.C., and Donald, a one-time investment baker turned junior-high teacher, is headed for a storybook wedding, until the arrival of Donald's gorgeous ex-fiancTe Adrienne, in an entertaining novel about the effects of jealousy. By the author of Animal Husbandry. 75,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
On the Delta Shuttle between New York and Washington, Elise finds herself sitting next to Donald - tall, with dark wavy hair, a big easy smile. She's left the world of women's magazines in Manhattan for graduate school in D.C. He's left investment banking to become a teacher. They are both unattached. They exchange stories. They fall in love. One year later they're headed for an April wedding. Storybook finish? Not quite.
Donald has some serious baggage: an ex-fiancee named Adrienne. And she's not just any ex: she is "the mother of all exes." Yale educated, French extraction, ravishing, and she's just shown up in D.C. Adrienne is Elise's worst nightmare incarnate - and before too long her all-consuming obsession. Every man comes with baggage. But did it have to be her?

This book was okay, but the ending was very disappointing. It almost felt as though the author was suddenly told she had to sum up the story in 20 pages or less and turn in the manuscript, so she did.
