Clarissa Alpert is starting to panic.  She is soon to be twenty-nine, well, actually thirty-two, but that is a well guarded secret, and she's not married yet!  She is used to living the life of luxury. She doesn't work, except on her looks and connections, her daddy pay's her rent and between him and her mother, they keep her very stylishly attired.  When her parents divorced, she hit the jackpot financially.

Living in Hollywood, Clarissa has quite an impressive list of friends, acquaintances....and exes! She doesn't want to be single anymore, she feels it's time she took the next step and got married. So, she recruits the help of her friends to find her a husband. She zeros in on Aaron Mason who is the hottest new producer in town.

Aaron doesn't know what hit him once Clarissa moves in for the kill. She knows just how to show off her "assets" to catch his attention, and once she got it, he is a goner. Before they hardly finished their first date she had her entire wedding planned, down to the last detail. Not just planned in her mind, but literally planned with all the reservations made! She just has to get the bridegroom to cooperate, which is harder than she thought it would be.

Things are going great, well, there are a few glitches here and there, but nothing she can't work around. Then things start falling apart in all aspects of her family and love life. Can she manage to "grow up" enough to work her way through the problems of life? Just because nothing is quite the way she thought it was, can she salvage the things that really matter?

MANEATER is a hilarious story of a girl that has all the wrong ideals in life, and her struggle to work around life's obstacles to get what she wants. Clarissa is a great example of the way a person can get in a "mindset" whether right or wrong, and expect things to follow a set path. Ms. Grazer has written a terrifically, entertaining story that will keep you laughing, and yet, make you think about your own "values." This is the first book I've read by this author, but I will be looking forward to reading more.
