Being Committed

Annotation
A hopeless unromantic gets acrash course in love in the fourthhilarious novel from bestsellingauthor Anna Maxted

After her disaster of a marriage ends when she is justtwenty, Hannah is convinced you have to be out of yourmind (or desperate) to tie the knot. And life without ahusband at thirty-one is just fine, thank you very much.She has a steady job working as a private investigator(albeit a mediocre one); a devoted boyfriend of fiveyears, Jason; and a wonderful relationship with her dad(its a shame her mother is such a lost cause). Then, ona romantic weekend retreat to a faux-ancient castle, Jason proposes marriage, leaving Hannah with nochoice but the obvious: to turn him down cold.

Much to her horror, four weeks later, Jason becomesengaged to his next-door neighbor, a fine bakerand "proficient seamstress." Has Hannah blown herlast chance at a solid relationship as her familyclaims? Jason agrees to give her another chance -- butonly if she meets his terms, among them a promise todust off the many skeletons in her closet.

Brimming with her characteristic blend of humorand heartache, Anna Maxteds Being Committed is a perceptivelook at intimacy (and its substitutes), commitmentphobia, and the power others have over us.
