Regular Coffee by Christie Perfetti
"It wasn't as if Ginny was a morbid person or even a pessimist. In fact, she considered herself to have a rather normal, contented outlook on life. But that was the thing. Normal meant regular, and regular meant average, and average meant terribly, terribly boring. But one random rainy morning, life took one of those crazy turns that Ginny Neboski only thought existed in the movies, and the good got a lot better." It is a typical chaotic morning at work when twenty-nine-year-old plain-Jane Ginny Neboski lands in a New York hospital and, soon after, the office of her own physician, who prescribes an antidote to Ginny's blues: a man. With the help of her feisty and loyal colleague, Donna, Ginny begins a hilarious sexathon to revive her body and spirit. In the process, simple Ginny winds up on the cover of glamour magazines, hob-knobs with the rich and famous, and befriends a curmudgeonly neighbor. But at the height of passion and success, Ginny discovers the truth behind a forbidden family secret and is forced to face the reality of her life. Will she risk losing the love of a good man for self- respect?
