I decided to buy this book when I read the first chapter in the bookstore. It got me from the beginning. Ellie is a "good" girl who always washes off her makeup, writes thank you notes, and sends Christmas cards. Being this kind of girl, it is extremely hard to break up with a man. In this first chapter, this is what she is struggling with. Breaking up with (another) boyfriend who just doesn't seem right for her.
Sooner than later, she runs into a new man. 20 something years her senior, his dog nuzzles up to her dog, and she's in love. She goes on a first date with him, and still has a thing for him, even after he guesses that she is 10 years older than she really is. Unfortunately, it doesn't go so well when he finds out what her age really is.
Fortunately for Ellie, his attraction to her doesn't cease, and he comes back for more, even though his morals keep trying to keep him away. He thinks that dating younger women is wrong, and as a newscaster, he wants to keep a professional reputation. There is also the matter of the ex wife, who doesn't like to see any woman take her place.
Quick, fun, and laugh out loud funny at times, this is a good summer book and only took me a couple of days to finish!

After a tough day at work, I retreated to the library to gather chick lit. This was the only book in the pile that held my attention (granted, my work situation is similar to Ellie's at the beginning of the book), and I finished it that weekend.
I like that things aren't completely resolved at the end. I think that, at that point, Ellie has grown into a person who will be able to handle the lingering problems and face future ones, too.
Although my library hasn't ordered Gaskell's forthcoming book, I put in a request for it to do so! If they don't, I'll happily buy it.

Hmmm, I just tried to write a review for this book and it disappeared!?! Let me try again.
Once I picked Pushing 30 up, I couldn't put it down. I read a lot of chick lit, and I think this is one of the better books in the genre. It was very witty, and very romantic, and I just loved the main character, Ellie. I felt like I knew her.
I would definitely recommend this book. I also like books by Jane Green and Sophie Kinsella, so if you like their books, you'll like this one too.

I loved this book. I've read a lot of chick lit books, and I think this one was better than most. It was very witty, and very romantic, and I just loved the main character, Ellie. She was so real to me. I also thought the love story between her and Ted was very sexy.
I would definitely recommend it! I also love Sophie Kinsella, Jane Green and Jennifer Weiner, so if you like their books, I think you'll like this one too.

This book was horrible. The writing was average, at best. The plot was just like 10,000 other books out there right now. The characters were flat and uninteresting. I expected to have a few laughs with the book, but I didn't laugh once. It was a big waste of money.

Well written, great characters. I really enjoyed this book, it was exactly what I was looking for, something light and fun I could read while curled up in my rocking chair with a hot cup of tea. It is like "Bridget Jones meets Sex & the City", but with an original flare that only Whitney Gaskell can create. And just for the record...I really liked the ending :P

Basic facts: Ellie Winters is about to turn 30. She is not happy with her career (a litigation lawyer), her hair color (to the point of even doing at-home highlights), or her love-life (she's had her share of boyfriends but no fireworks). This all changes when she meets Ted Langston, a sexy, charming, witty and well known t.v. news anchorman who happens to be 23 years older than Ellie.

This book engaged me right from the start. Although I am happily married, I found myself able to relate to Ellie in many ways and was cheering for her to get her guy right up to the end. Ms. Gaskell's first book has shown that she has an ability to weave likeable (and not-so likeable) characters together with a fun story line. I have already passed my copy on to other friends and am looking forward to her next book.
