Lessons in Duck Shooting, by Jayne Buxton (Random House, $26.99):
In need of a life makeover, Ally James allows her best friend to bully her into going to a dating seminar.
There, American relationship guru Marina Body claims all you need is some shrewd self-marketing and a steady stream of trial men — or, to use her term, duck decoys.
With that, she says, you’re well on your way to meeting Mr Right.
Unfortunately, Ally’s life is so hectic, she’s not sure she has time to hunt for Mr Right.
The book’s filled with real-life humour and day-to-day dramas that most readers, especially single mums, will be able to relate to.
Let the duck-hunt begin.
