So does Paula Marantz Cohen in her novel, a witty twist on Pride and Prejudice--except this time, the village is Boca Raton, Florida.Eligible men, especially ones in possession of a good fortune and country club privileges, are scarce.

When goodhearted meddler Carol Newman learns that the wealthy Norman Grafstein has lost his wife, she resolves to marryhim off to her lonely mother-in-law, May.The novel charts the progress of Mays love life as well as that of her two closest friends: the strong-minded former librarian Flo Kliman and the flamboyant Lila Katz. If there werent confusion enough, Flos great-niece Amy, a film student at NYU, suddenly arrives with a camera crew determined to get it all on tape.Will May and Norman eventually find happiness?

Will Flo succumb to the charms of the suavely cosmopolitan Mel Shirmer? Will Amys movie about them win an Academy Award--or at least a prize at the NYU student film competition?Complications and misunderstandings abound in this romantic and perceptive comedy of manners.
