Straight Talking

Straight Talking


Number one bestseller Jane Green - author of Babyville and The Love Verb - explores the hectic life of a single career girl looking to find love in her hilarious first novel Straight Talking.

This could be about your best friend. Or your girlfriend. Or it might be about you.

Are you Tasha - single and searching?
Or her best friends:
Andy, hooked on passion;
Mel, stuck in a relationship with a bastard;
or Emma, endlessly waiting for her other half to propose?

Do you know an Andrew - suave, good-looking and head over heels in love . . . with himself?
Or a Simon - allergic to commitment and dangerously treacherous?
Or even an Adam - handsome, kind, humorous, but too nice to be sexy?

Follow them all in their journey to find fulfillment and love.
