Review

"You need only pay the price of this book to spend a few hours in the spirited and hilarious company of Jessie DeSalvo. I laughed and rooted for her all the way on her journey from dejected office drone to confident entrepreneur. Forza Jessie!" (Giulia Melucci, author of I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti)

"I needed this book! Within the first few paragraphs, I was laughing out loud! Jessie's character is perfectly drawn, There's not a female reader who won't identify with her. As Jessie struggles to make sense for her self created foibles, she has glimmers of insight. What sounds like serious self-reflection concludes with the perfect annotation. 'As I knew from my brief experience with self-help, the answers are always within. And most Bruce (Springsteen) songs help you recognize the difficulties.'

Best Friend for Hire is a clever and hopeful must read!" (Luna Saint Claire, Author)

Product Description

Jersey Girl Jessie DeSalvo has her dream job at one of New York’s top publishing companies. After ten years of hard work the day of her big promotion has arrived. Unfortunately, her company has other ideas. Instead of a corner office, Jessie is handed her pink slip.

Left with little more than her cell phone and an unusable contact list, Jessie retreats to less-than-fashionable Hoboken, New Jersey, to figure out her life—and deal with the attentions of her loving but inquisitive Italian-American family. Then she accidentally stumbles into a career as a professional best friend—by helping friends and strangers straighten out whatever is wrong with their lives. Her jobs include planning the New Jersey wedding of the year and saving a bankrupt rock club in town. Soon, things get complicated when she falls in love with the club manager—and promises an appearance by Bruce Springsteen.

In the end, Jessie realizes that not even “The Boss” can make things right—and that she needs to become her own best friend to be truly happy.
