Her deadline is Christmas - she doesn't want to spend another holiday by herself. Just as she decides her strategy, she meets Matt, her downstairs neighbour. They become unlikely friends, with Matt an amused bystander as Cora tries various methods in search of a man. Then something strange happens. Matt, who spends his life avoiding commitment, begins to feel jealous of the men Cora is dating and his resolve to never fall in love begins to crumble. Cora finds herself increasingly attracted to Matt. But is he good husband material? She thinks not. A lighthearted, contemporary romance about a young woman who goes looking for love, only to find it right under her nose.
