What it’s about:
When twenty-something singleton Jess Beam finds herself without a home, job or friends, she tracks down and moves in with her estranged grandmother. Desperate for the cash from a prospective publishing deal, they embark on a project to see if Jess can make an apparently eternal bachelor scumbag fall in love with her using the tips from her grandmother’s 1950s “good woman” guides to dating.
I have mixed feelings about this book I find hard to express. So hard, I’m going to have fall back on bullet points.
