Sydney Zamora is fiercely independent, aggressively opinionated and utterly self-made. Armed with feminist ideals and a fashionista's sense of style, this self-proclaimed feminista has reshaped her body, staked out her own little piece of Manhattan as a celebrity journalist and only dated men on her own terms. There's just one problem: Sydney has never really let a man in. And now that she's hitting her mid-thirties, she wants one. Badly.
Enter Mitzi Berman, a $40,000 a shot matchmaker forced on Sydney by her well-meaning sister-with-the-perfect-suburban-life (even if she does have a wife instead of a husband). Sydney is Mitzi's most challenging project yet: she's gorgeous but nearly impossible to set up with a man. Mitzi also has her eye on Max Cooper, scion of Harvey's department store, the city's chicest place to shop. But nothing could make either Sydney or Max Cooper run faster than Mitzi, with her inflexible instructions and her Brooklyn accent. And they might just wind up running into each other's arms.
