For the commitment-averse women in the 11 stories of SINGLE, CAREFREE, MELLOW, falling in love is never easy and always inconvenient. Maya is in love with both her boyfriend and her boss. Sadie’s lover calls her as he drives to meet his wife at marriage counseling. Nina is more worried that the Presbyterian minister living above her garage will hear her kids swearing than that he will find out she’s sleeping with her running partner. These ladies grapple with love amidst everything from unwelcome houseguests to disastrous birthday parties.
