Summary:

"Oh, don’t judge me, people. We all do it.Don’t try to tell me that you’ve never checked that weird mole on your thigh on WebMD. Or how to fold meringue on Epicurious. And, there’s no way that I’m the only one who clears her search history after looking up how to give a great bl— (Um, that last one’s not important.)"When newspaper reporter Avery Fowler discovers her husband is having an affair, the online help site HowTo.com is where she turns to navigate this challenging stage of her life.If the Internet is Avery’s information god, then HowTo.com is her Holy Grail. Its live chat option is like having a virtual life coach for the low, low price of $14.95 a month:"When I joined HowTo.com, it assigned me “Clementine” as my advisor, based on my choice of “British female” in the Preferences panel. That way, I can pretend that a Maggie Smith or Judi Dench type supplies the wisdom, tinged with a sassy touch of malt vinegar. (In reality, it’s most likely a bored, seventeen-year-old boy labouring in a New Delhi call centre.)"Add into the mix a new boss whose managerial style calls to mind the Wicked Bitch Witch of the West—or the Anti-Christ—and the poor girl needs all the help she can get! The stakes rise and hilarity ensues as our heroine struggles to take control of her personal life and topple her boss after she learns Victoria’s guilty secret.With Clementine (virtually) in tow, our heroine tackles such tricky situations as dating after divorce, sex once nothing points north anymore, and how to cover attempted murder scenes (despite a paralyzing fear of blood) as the new and improved Avery Fowler 2.0. -------------If you've ever duct-taped the hem of your skirt, tried haemorrhoid cream under your eyes to hide the bags (because you read online it might help), or believe that chocolate should be its own food group, you'll cheer for Avery Fowler.“Jennifer Ammoscato, where have you been all my life? …hands down my new favourite chick-lit author.” Tess Woods, Harper Collins author, Love at First Flight“If you loved the BRIDGET JONES books, though, I think you will adore Avery!” Terry Tyler, author“I laughed so hard I snorted.” – Samantha March, Chick Lit Plus
