Synopsis

Following her hilarious bestselling volume of humorous reflections on life, love, and whatever (Sometimes I Feel Like a Nut), Jill Kargman makes a triumphant return to the world of fiction with The Rock Star in Seat 3A. The author of The Ex-Mrs Hedgefund, Arm Candy, and Momzillas delights with this smart and sassy modern-day fairy tale romance…with a twist.

The story of a woman whose most cherished romantic fantasy comes true—at the possible expense of everything else in her life—when she finds herself seated right next to a rock ’n’ roll demigod on a business flight from New York to Los Angeles, The Rock Star in Seat 3A is fresh, funny, and outrageously entertaining women’s fiction that will strike a loud power chord with fans of Lauren Weisberger and Jennifer Weiner.

Finn’s gloomy lyrics and all the “Oh, god, Hazel” moments in the world can’t help float this lead zeppelin.

And it serves as a reminder that no matter how your fantasy transpires, the reality will never quite match it. I’m looking forward to reading more from Kargman.
