Overview

FROM THE AMAZON #1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR IN HUMOR, TOP 10 IN WOMEN'S FICTION

Would you move 6,000 miles to be with the love of your life?

Hannah did. Unfortunately her plan isn't going terribly well. What was supposed to be a move to Hong Kong to start a wonderful new life with Sam is turning into a move to Hong Kong to spend occasional weekends with Sam, when he can get away from an unanticipated work assignment on the opposite side of the South China Sea. Still, she's optimistic, if woefully unprepared for the intricacies of Hong Kong. Stumbling through the alien city, which she loves, she starts to build a life for herself. Things definitely look up when she finds a great boss to work for, and her best friend Stacy moves to the city too. But alarm bells ring as Sam seems to be getting a bit too cozy with his boss. And when things start going wrong at work, Hannah can't help but wonder if she's made the biggest mistake of her life.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon - Selena Paulsen
"I enjoy Chick Lit, and it's not uncommon for me to find "laugh out loud" scenes in such books. Often, the genre contains positively humiliating events that make us cringe as well. However, it is not typical in my experience to find a Chick Lit novel that will make you cry. This one will. The authenticity of Hannah's broken heart brought tears to my eyes, and many memories to mind of my own struggles with finding love at her age. Gorman has nailed it, spot on."
Chick Lit Central (book blogger) - Chick lit Reviewer
"Nothing misfortunate about this delicious morsel!"
The Book Chick - Jonita Fex
"The book describes so many wonderful things about Hong Kong, including the way of life there, what living there entails, and the scenery that I truly felt like I was there alongside Hannah."
Novel Escapes - Laura Reviewer
"Fans of Sex in the City, the Shopaholic series, and Lindsay Kelk's I Heart Series will appreciate Gorman's novel and her easy to root for heroine and the hilarious situations she tends to find herself in."
Chick Lit Central - Melissa Amster

    Cute read- fun novel!

    I really enjoyed this novel! It is a sequel to Michele's debut novel, Single in the City. This one takes place in Hong Kong, after Hannah moves there to be with her boyfriend, Sam. Hannah's friend, Stacy, makes her appearance again as well, helping Hannah through all of life's little issues with food, drinks, and fun. Several new characters pop up as well, and they are fun and entertaining. I was a little put off by Sam's casual attitude in regards to their relationship, but it did make sense eventually! The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is that I was a bit confused by the ending. *SPOILER ALERT* At the very end, when Hannah is going to "send some texts" and talks about second chances, I was not sure if she was just talking about her parents or if she was going to text Sam and tell him that she wants to give him another chance. I hope she doesn't! She did the absolute right thing by leaving him due to his leacherous behavior. However, it does leave it open for a third book!
