Book Description

April 1 2003 Red Dress Ink Novels
A Fancy Affair Bridal Salon
Forest Hills, Queens

"Did you know that one of your hips is higher than the other?" the seamstress asked me in a totally conversational tone.

"I didn't," I said. "I never knew that. But I'm glad you told me."

The seamstress had the decency to look embarrassed. She ducked her head back down and continued pinning.

Perhaps that had been the reason why Blind Dates One, Two and Three hadn't been interested. It wasn't the smoking, after all. It was my Hip Issue. And just my luck that Blind Date #4 was with a doctor, whose business it was to notice such deformities.

See Jane Date will speak to singles everywhere. At once warm and witty, this look into the life of 28-year-old assistant editor Jane Gregg, screams, "You are not alone!" Case in point: See Jane . . .

-- Endure two months of bridesmaid hell for her younger cousin's wedding
-- Brilliantly dodge being fixed up with Grammy's next-door neighbor by fibbing that she, um, already has a boyfriend
-- Date . . . like crazy to find one suitable guy to bring to said wedding

Okay, find one suitable guy to love. Was that so much to ask?

4.0 out of 5 stars Going In Blind April 22 2004
By mereph
Jane Gregg is a twenty-something assistant editor at Posh Publishing who gets a chance at a promotion. all she has to do is edit the memoir of Natasha Nutley. the same Natasha Nutley Jane knows from high school who made her life miserable. in a desperate attempt to impress Natasha, Jane makes up a very handsome, very rich, very fake boyfriend. when Jane's engaged cousin, Dana, hears the rumor, she tells Jane to bring the "new guy" to her wedding. now Jane has to find a stand-in boyfriend through blind dates to bring to the wedding or she'll look exactly like she feels...a desperate idiot.
i couldnt put this book down. it drew me in, from the first to last page. the array of different personalities in the book ensures that anyone can relate to at least one of the characters. See Jane Date is a must read for any fan of Chick Lit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chick Lit at its best! March 13 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Melissa Senate has summed up the wonderful world of dating that any woman in any city anywhere in the world can relate to. It is a quick and easy read filled with both humor and emotion. By the end of the book you are just pulling for Jane to find a great guy. You will be turning pages faster than you can read to see if she funds him. It reminded me of my sibgle days in city. I loved every page of it.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read Jan. 25 2004
There wasn't anything out of the ordinary about it but THAT'S what I liked! The heroine was REAL and I LIKED her. She had the everyday problems that most single women go through and she was easy to identify with. She also had an interesting job at Posh and her relationship with her friend/foe "The Gnat" held my interest as well. I found myself curious about what would happen at her blind dates and was rooting for one to work out!
I'd recommend this book. It's a nice story. Also, I really liked the ending, which doesn't happen too often.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of my faviorte chick lit books Dec 29 2003
To be honest, when I bought this book I didn't think it would be very good. I mean, the premice is pretty much that a single woman is trying to prove herself to people by showing them she has a man? But once I actually read the book I realized I was wrong. I loved the fact that this book proved that the grass is always greener on the other side. I mean, Jane is so obsessed with Natasha's perception of her when really she has admired Jane all along! I loved the fact that Jane and Natasha became friends in the end. I also loved the ending where she finally meets Mr.Right becuuse it proved that you really do find him when your not looking!

5.0 out of 5 stars Swift Read -- And Survival Tool! Nov. 21 2003
Sometimes you're just in the mood for fluff. "See Jane Date" is a quick, fun jaunt with another city-girl tripping into the gutter of dating, and a handy companion for a day at the beach. Maybe it was because I was alone, or maybe it was my lilting laughter carrying on the wind, but "See Jane Date" seemed to make me quite approachable. Unfortunately, it first attracted the daybreak set of hairy, transplanted - (that is, both the foreign-import and hair-plug variety) - beach studs who were insistent on making conversation over that ever original, "Hey mermaid, watcha readin'?" pickup-line. Just as Jane was about to go off on some smug bridesmaid banshees, I found her quite useful in pummeling Vlady's meat hook as he attempted to pick stray lint from my navel. When Claudio interrupted Jane's anti-cheapskate rant with an offer to comb my hair with a seashell, it worked as a nice shovel to fling sand into his eyes. By the end of the book, "See Jane Date" did land me with one of my own. Content and smiling with the haze of romantic possibility, I rescued a surfer with an irrational fear of seagulls by tossing my finished book into the air like a crouton to intercept the gull's nosedive for his Quizno's meatlover hoagie. We shared his pickles, and I recommended my book to Suzy, who was feigning a nap during the second sweep of "Jogging-Speedo-Man." Overall, "See Jane Date" is a must-read for any beach babe.

5.0 out of 5 stars A tale of the dateless... Oct. 28 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Though this is ultimately chick lit in the spirit of the Red Dress Ink line, it is a delightful piece of fluff that, for me, hit home on the experience of the modern twentysomething woman in America. Jane handles her life with just enough humor and aplomb to make me a fan. I desperately wanted the best for her, but had fun when her life was anything but. Jane and Natasha were among my favorite characters in recent reads. Though not a work of Shakespeare, I believe this could be a Dickens-esque book for our time. I've passed my copy on to several of my friends and would continue to recommend this to any other chicks out there interested in a satisfying and humorous read.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Literary Review Oct. 13 2003
I found the Melissa Senate's novel See Jane Date to be void of any literary greatness. The diction of the novel is informal and colloquial, which makes reading the book seem like listening to a story from a close friend. It was a highly amusing and easy book to read. The author uses allusions to famous Hollywood actors help set the idea of Jane being a real person, who admires the same celebrities we do. Jeremy Black, Jane's handsome boss, symbolizes her attachment to unlikely dreams. An example of foreshadowing in the novel is Jane's family insisting she go to the wedding with their charming neighbor; Jane persistently refused to go out with him, but when she finally meets him at the end, they fall in love. Over all, the message of the book was that looking for love will get you nowhere, and you will find love when you stop looking for it.
