Although gifted with wit and artistic talent, Lucy Venier lacks focus. As she tries various careers, from crime reporter to sleep-deprived law student, her offbeat life experiences fuel her insatiable desire to create. Unfortunately "starving artist" isn't a desirable job title, so Lucy hides her creativity under her business suit.
As if figuring out her life isn't hard enough, all of Lucy's friends are getting married, but Lucy's not sure if she's capable of living happily ever after. With a string of loser former flames, giving up on love seems to be the best option. Until Ben--Lucy's Mr. Right, who comes along at completely the wrong time.
In the tradition of "The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing, ""The Hard Way" is a scrapbook of tales from Lucy's life. As she discovers more about the people around her, will she finally begin to understand herself?

This was my favourite book in a long time. Loved the characters, the perspectives, the insight, the humour. It was chick-lit, but so much more. It was more of a post-feminist take on chick-lit. I think that men would love this book too. Would love to see it made into a film.
