Summary
Diana Campanella, a vintage clothing store owner in Washington, D.C., struggles to save her failing business, make peace in her turbulent family, and choose between two very different Mr. Rights. A first novel. 25,000 first printing.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

Fans of smart, romantic comedy à la Cathleen Schine and Caroline Preston will love heroine Diana Campanella, a thirtyish vintage-clothing store owner struggling to salvage her floundering business, placate her Catholic family, and choose between two very different Mr. Rights.

Diana Campanella has been a little panicky lately -- and with good reason. Her vintage clothing store is on the verge of going bust and her engagement to her lawyer fiancé has lasted longer than most people's marriages. What's a girl to do?

Struggling to make ends meet while keeping the peace in her boisterous family Diana feels caught between one sister who makes her living as a lingerie model and another who is a devout Catholic housewife. But just when all seems lost, hope arrives in the form of a rumpled New York lawyer named Harry -- a soul mate whose generous supply of warmth and compassion more than make up for his shortage of designer duds. Now Diana has to make a choice between the blueblood fiancé who promises the security she desperately craves and the scrappy dark horse who always manages to make her laugh.

This wry, sophisticated. lighthearted novel features first-rate writing, a delightful, "just-between-us-girls" spirit, a terrific cast of characters who feel like old friends and a wise heroine for the nineties. Cupid and Diana is a witty and winning debut.
