Publisher's Summary

A funny, bittersweet, yet heartwarming novel about friendship, family, and finding love in the Facebook age - not to mention the perils, pitfalls, and dubious pleasures of life as a modern young single woman - from Erin Duffy, the author of the acclaimed Bond Girl.

Ever since she was a little girl, Abby Wilkes dreamed of her wedding, the day when she'd wear a pretty white dress and look like a princess.…

But that was before her life fell apart for the entire world to see. Her longtime boyfriend-turned-fiancé, Ben, unceremoniously dumped her - changing his status to single on Facebook - while she was trying on the most gorgeous Vera Wang dress for the big day.

Six months and 20 pounds later, the usual remedies - cupcakes, a freezer stocked with pints of Ben and Jerry's, sweatpants, and a comfy couch - haven't worked their magic. Worried about her best friend, Grace devises the perfect plan to get Abby back on her game. The two of them are going to escape sweltering Boston and its reminders of Ben and head to Newport for the summer. In a quaint rented cottage by the sea, the girls will enjoy cool breezes, cocktails, and crowds of gorgeous men.

But no matter which way they turn, Abby and Grace discover that in this era of social media - when seemingly everyone is preserving every last detail of their lives online and prying eyes are everywhere - there is no real escape. Truth to tell, dating has never been easy. But now that the rules have changed and the boundaries are blurred beyond recognition, will they ever find true love? And if they do, how can romance stand a chance when a girl's every word and move can go viral with a single click?

As the summer winds down to Labor Day, Abby will make some surprising discoveries - about love, men, friendship...and, most important, herself.

    Where does On the Rocks rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was good story, but it would be nice to understand more of Ben's side.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of On the Rocks?

    The scene when Abbi had a fight with her sister, during the time her sister was picking out her wedding dress. I didn't know what to dislike her sister or not, her character was very confusing. I also love the argument between Abbi and Grace at the beach house.


    Which character – as performed by Cyndi Shope – was your favorite?

    I loved Ben's free spirit.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Abbi stood up to her ex-finace.

    What was most disappointing about Erin Duffy’s story?

    It was so incredibly slow that I couldn't even finish it. The narrator's pace reading as well as the story line. I wasn't invested at all. Disappointed.
