Overview

In a society focused on finding "The One" when you're young enough to live a life glamorized in all manner of media, what happens when you find yourself facing that struggle past the dreaded age of forty-five?

It's a whole new world out there. If there is a soul mate, where do you even begin to find yours--in the classic single bars or on the oft-disastrous internet? What's expected in sex in the modern era, and when, after so many years, is the right time?

Rebooting in Beverly Hills is Sex and the City for the next generation. It's the witty, charming, and absolutely true account of Marcy Miller, a competent, attractive professional woman, as she struggles to re-enter the dating world after an esteem-killing divorce of an adulterous husband.

Set in the opulent oasis of Beverly Hills, Marcy riffs on pickups, fix-ups, internet dating, matchmaking, divorce, and all the other craziness--like psychics, girlfriends, and sex--that pop up along the road of leaving single life behind.

This fun, engaging memoir, written by a loveable and slightly saucy storyteller, is for anyone who has faced rejection and the need to start again. It's for anyone who still searches for love.

A hilarious look at the world of dating, Rebooting in Beverly Hills is full of great stories, helpful advice, Beverly Hills glamor, and fun.

Editorial Reviews

Paula Schneider, CEO, Big Strike LLC, a Portfolio Company of the Gores Group
Such a stitch!
Ed Feldman, Producer of Witness, The Truman Show, 101 Dalmations, etc.
A quick and compelling book that sets forth, in side-splittingly funny fashion, Marcy Miller’s many adventures as she struggles to re-enter the dating world after a disastrous divorce from an adulterous husband. Marcy’s a little saucy and it’s easy to empathize with her search for love. The book wasn’t written for me, or any other man, but I loved it, and most men will, too, I bet.
Jennifer Dynof, President, LoweProfile (Rob Lowe's Production Company)
Not many women can pull of a memoir that is, at the same time, so revealing, so funny, and so helpful. Bravo!
Irwin Kula, Rabbi, Author of Yearnings: Embracing the Sacred Messiness of Life (one of the 10 best spiritual boo
This book is a great read―compelling, engaging, funny, entertaining, acerbic, so honest, revealing, and deeply human. By the end, it’s quite hopeful because ultimately it’s a story about recreating/rebuilding one’s life because of one’s will, one’s determination, one’s smarts, one’s great friendships, one’s sense of humor, one’s strength, and one’s ability to trust again. This is a book that is going to help people.
Amy Gregg, Jewelry Executive
As a twenty-something facing the challenges of dating, I found Marcy Miller to be informative and inspirational. We can all learn from her journey.
