the thing about jane spring

 Meet Jane Spring, Manhattan attorney extraordinaire. Raised by a General to never, never embrace her feminine side, Jane is much more in touch with the Yang part of her personality than the Yin. She's loud, she's direct, she never met a witness she couldn't browbeat into submission.

In other words everything in her life seems to be going swimmingly except for one teeny, tiny little thing.

Jane just can't seem to get a man. Not a second date, not a walk in the park, not a kiss in the cheek. Never mind a date to a wedding or even a wedding of her own.

Jane is stuck in the house during a bitter snow storm and is struck with a rather brilliant idea. Doris Day never had trouble getting a man. Not one time. Jane vows then and there forever more to ask WWDD (what would Doris do) She decides from this point forward to dress like Doris, to cut her hair, to speak softly and and demurely and to never- never allow a gentleman caller up to her apartment. Pretty soon Jane finds her entire life changing.

Now usually I consider myself an Audrey Hepburn kinda girl but this was a cute idea. A little simplistic at times. A little zany but always, always fun. I have to admit I found myself asking WWDD.

This does sound like a cutesy, fun read. WWDD?? I bet I'll ask myself that at least once today!

PS: I found you through Caroline Bookbinder. I love your review style - brief and funny :)
