No one writes like Elinor Lipman; her novels are heart-warming, life-affirming, funny, sharp and wise. And in THE WAY MEN ACT she turns her attention to small-town life, and to trying to fall in love when everyone is watching...Melinda is a florist.
She doesn't want to be. She never intended to come home to Harrow, Massachusetts and, if she did, she planned to be married with a great job, not single and designing her former classmates' wedding bouquets.
What's worse, why does she care so much that her sort-of friend Libby has set her sights on a fellow shopkeeper?
She doesn't have a crush on handsome, chivalrous Dennis herself.
