That's the premise of the sparkling new romantic comedy from the author of the acclaimed international bestseller Ralph's Party-an irresistible novel about best friends, turning thirty ... and falling in love.
The critics raved about Lisa Jewell's bestselling debut novel, calling Ralph's Party "addictively readable" (The Times, London); "like going to a great dinner party" (The New York Post). thirtynothing brings together a charming quartet of modern men and women in pursuit of sex, love, friendship, and the perfect relationship.
On his thirtieth birthday, Dig Ryan bumps into his first love Delilah, whom he hasn't seen in twelve years. Delilah was the most beautiful girl in school and a constant thorn-in-the-side of Nadine, who has been Dig's best friend for the last fifteen years. Nadine isn't about to let Delilah outshine and outmaneuver her again ... which is when she calls her first love, Phil ....
A buoyant novel about friendship, lust, growing up, and growing older, thirtynothing is sure to delight fans of Ralph's Party and to win this hip, thirtysomething author a wealth of new readers.

Lisa Jewell worked in fashion and public relations, among other fields, before writing her first novel, Ralph's Party, which became an international bestseller.From Publishers Weekly:
Like a fizzy cocktail, Jewell's follow-up to her bestselling Ralph's Party is quickly consumed and sometimes dizzying. Set in posh London, the plot adheres to the When Harry Met Sally formula of romantic comedyAtwo characters are unaware of their love for each other. Naturally, readers witness a string of calamities eventually resulting in a happy-ever-after ending. Dig Ryan and Nadine Kite, best friends for 15 years, have exhausted the dating market. Dig, who works for a small record label, wakes up on his 30th birthday with a 17-year-old girl in his bed, and suddenly feels old. He and Nadine, a 30-year-old freelance photographer, resolve to stop living as serial monogamists and find love with mature adults (to become, as Bridget Jones might say, Smug Marrieds). When Dig bumps into Delilah, the most beautiful girl in Holy Trinity high school and his first love, he thinks he may be lucky at last. Nadine is anything but happy at the reappearance, since Delilah, who has come to London without her husband, stole Dig from her once before. Meanwhile, Nadine has contacted her first love, Phil, who's even more of a jerk now than he was a decade ago, except now he's an ex-con, too. Of course, the appealing couple known as Dig 'n' Deen finds its way out of this tangle before the novel's candied close. Jewell's keen observation of British pop culture is perhaps the best attribute of a book that is fun but never quite intoxicating, and which is burdened by an unimaginative cover. (Jan.)
