The Deal: four friends have one year to find true love or stop whining about the lack of it. It's a year of surprises for all of them, as they take on unfaithful husbands, vindictive rumourmongers, well-intentioned stalkers, pixie drummers who write bad poetry, and marauding palmetto bugs. But most of all, they discover much about themselves through the surprising, touching and hilarious revelations produced by a year of exploring the nature of love.
..."a witty, thoughtful, and quite moving novel. Captures the mercurial Houston scene with more creative moxie than an Enron accountant!"--William Jack Sibley, author "Any Kind of Luck"
