Below are description of "Declaring Spinsterhood" and a short biographical sketch of the author, provided to Amazon.com.
What can you do when your family harps on you to get married (already!), when your delicious and alluring ex-boyfriend-cheater to the core-believes that you've fallen for another guy and sets out to woo and conquer (again), and when you suddenly realize that you have fallen in love with your best friend, the guy whose shoulder has always been available...but is presently being enjoyed by another woman? In Jamie Lynn Braziel's riotous first novel, Declaring Spinsterhood, she explores the world of 30-something single women, the pressures they face to tie the knot, and what happens when that knot begins to feel more like a noose. In the world of Emma Bailey, nothing is sacred. Including, and most especially, marriage.
