Praise for Clare Naylor
"Readers will stay on Naylor's scent as she devises surprising ways to break up and re-pair brightly drawn characters. . . . Yip, yip hooray!"
"[A] red-hot read sure to turn up the heat."
-Cosmopolitan Catching Alice
"Naylor has fun in this send-up-surely only in Los Angeles would old-fashioned wooing with chocolates, flowers, and love notes be interpreted as stalking-and her readers will, too."
-Booklist "Delicious . . . a refreshing, sexy, and funny novel."
Love: A User's Guide
"Lighthearted and assured . . . [Naylor] has created a comic heroine with a difference. . . . With the sharply intelligent wit of a modern Elizabeth Bennet and the imagination of Ally McBeal, Amy is the best excuse yet for surrender . . . to the [British] Invasion."
-Publishers Weekly "A perky tale of a glossy magazine fashion assistant's adventures in wonderland."
