Publisher's Summary

Spunky, sweet-natured Jessica Monroe is 34-years-old and perfectly happy being single. A producer at a top-rated morning show with a coterie of fun friends and a busy nightlife, she isn't in any rush to meet a man. Her girlfriends, however, disapprove. And when they secretly place a personal ad on a hot singles Web site on her behalf, Jess is reluctantly hurtled into the topsy-turvy world of online dating, where frogs masquerade as princes, but your soul mate might be just one click away.

A laugh-out-loud whirlwind of disastrous dates ensues, from Simon, who seems dreamy over e-mail but ditches her at the dinner table, leaving her with the bill, to Graham, a self-described "Ferrari driver" who turns out to be a car salesman, with several (old, fat, bald, creepy, cheap, stuck-up) men in between. When an unforeseen event turns her world upside down, Jess starts to wonder if the qualities she thinks she wants in a man are what she ultimately needs. And whether, as a new mystery suitor appears in her e-mail in-box, Cupid has other possibilities up his sleeve.

With her sparkling sensibility and brilliant knack for rendering the foibles of modern love in a fresh, unforgettable way, Jane Moore has become one of the fastest-growing names in contemporary women's fiction. Told with her signature wit, wisdom, and sass, Love @ First Site is an irresistible tale about what happens when we start to look for love between the lines on a computer screen, and a winning, unputdownable look at contemporary romance.

Delightful read

At first I thought the book was entertaining Bridget Jones Diary style fluff on internet dating but it turned out to be much more. It was wonderful to listen to the main character develop throughout the book. The narration was wonderful. This book is about dating, deciding what is really important in life and friend and family relationships. It was very meaningful to me.

hilarious

This is one the best books I have read in a long time. If you have ever gone on a blind date or internet date you will find this book very entertaining. There was a serious side to it also that I found very well written. This is a great commuter book.

Brilliant!

My first from Jane More and definitely not the last one! Yes, it is chick-lit, yet, rarely have I felt so much sympathy for fictional characters. A wonderful story about loving siblings and the all-too-true harshness of life, without missing the funny bits of life of a single mid 30.
Good plot and excellent narration!

more of a 'Fight for Cancer' story

The book starts off pretty good, got a few laughs from it. Then about an hour into it the main story is just thrown out the window.

The story then becomes more focused on her sisters struggle with Cancer and pretty becomes the focus of the story. She practically blows a guy off because he cared more about her then her sisters condition. Then it just becomes boring.

Pretty disappointed after reading the summary of the book. Will be the first and last Jane Moore book I buy.
