Book Description

May 1 2004 Red Dress Ink (Numbered Paperback) (Book 33)
There should be a four-letter word for beauty.

She has more shoes than Sarah Jessica Parker and a skin-care system that could make Madonna swoon, but unlike her celebrity counterparts, Grace Noonan doesn't have it all. Her latest utterly-eligible-yet-maddeningly-unavailable boyfriend has revealed that having sex with her is one thing and having babies quite another, forcing Grace to move on -- again. And now that her employer -- a top cosmetics company once devoted to "beauty beyond thirty" -- is pursuing a teenaged supermodel as its future face, this thirty-four-year-old marketing exec is starting to wonder if she is going to get it all before the closing credits. Could it be time for Grace to back out of the beauty race and trade the singles scene for the sperm bank? Or is there something even this savvy bombshell has yet to discover about life and love in New York City?

Product Details

Product Description

From Booklist

Readers may remember Grace Noonan from Curnyn's previous novel, Engaging Men (2003), as the fun, feisty friend of heroine Angie DiFranco. Angie has her man now, but Grace is still looking or, rather, holding any man who might get close to her at arm's length. She dumps Ethan when he reacts with horror at the idea that he may have gotten her pregnant. Things aren't any better at work: the cosmetics company she works for has decided to market a new line to the teen set, and her ex-boyfriend Michael, the son of the company's founder, is back in town with a new fiancee on his arm, who just happens to be the woman heading up the project. When her period comes late and Grace believes she may indeed be pregnant, she finds herself excited rather than frightened by the possibility. Curnyn's novels keep getting better; readers will love following tough, sophisticated Grace on her quest for love and family. Kristine Huntley

5.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed this book! July 4 2004
I got this book not knowing if it would be as good as it was. I loved Grace's character. The more I read the book that more I could relate to her. Grace was real without being conceited or mean. She didn't have a fit when she gained weight and was open to finding love in a place she least expected it. I also loved the character of Jonathan. He was shy and sweet and a real woman's man. This is my first Red Dress Ink and I'll certainly be open to reading more.

4.0 out of 5 stars An easy read June 30 2004
By A Customer
I read "Engaging Men" and was happy to hear that the author would do a follow-up for Grace. "Bombshell" is a good, easy read. The ending was realistic, not the typical fairy tale ending. Could there possibly be a 3rd book? Let's hope so.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why Can't all RDI books be like Bombshell? June 24 2004
I just don't understand why all Red Dress Ink Book be like "Bombshell" Good! This was the first book that I read from Lynda Curnyn and I really liked it.
At thirty-four Grace Noonan is still looking for Mr. Right and if that was not enough to deal with there have been a major sake up at cosmetic company that she works at. Instead the over-forty market that have been there bread and butter, they are going after the under twenty set.
This was a great book that left the reader with hope for not only Grace but themshelves. I just hope that all RDI Books are as good as "Bombshell" and those early year bad reads are done with.

5.0 out of 5 stars More to the picture than meets the eye May 21 2004
By A Customer
All of Lynda Curnyn's books are great fun to read, but it seems as though each new book has more character development and complex storyline. In Bombshell, the glamorous main character, who appears to have everything going for her, goes through things that make tears come to your eyes one minute, and make you burst into laughter the next. Some complex and tough situations are covered deftly. If you enjoy reading about resiliant New Yorkers navigating the social complexities, I would recommend all of Ms. Curnyn's books.
