Praise for Seeking Happily Ever After:
“Finally, a book that single women can relate to! Too often, self-help books operate on fear-mongering—aiming to convince women that they have some major defect preventing them from finding Mr. Right and they better fix it. Michelle Cove starts with the assumption that single women are just fine as they are and then provides warm, friendly, and wise advice to help women be their happiest selves, no matter what stage of being single they are in.”
—Courtney E. Martin, editor at Feministing, and author, Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters: How the Quest for Perfection Is Harming Young Women
“This book is for every woman who's single and been told to rush toward the altar, but who knows that her life - her own precious, dynamic, exciting, life - is full and worthwhile. This book is an affirmation that no woman should settle for less than she deserves. It's a toast to all the young women who know they deserve everything they want, and it reminds them that they shouldn't settle for less - not in friends, not in careers, and certainly not in romantic partners. Michelle Cove is a story teller, helping women script their own, contemporary, sassy, happy endings.
—Beth Jones, co-author of Three Wishes: A True Story of Good Friends, Crushing Heartbreak, and Astonishing Luck on Our Way to Love and Motherhood.
“If the question is, Why are you still single? the answer can be found in this book. Michelle Cove has created a boot camp for single women who need a reminder that they are islands of sanity in an insane world—not the other way around. Every woman will relate to at least one of the real-life stories. It should be required reading for women over thirty who are tired of feeling pressure to marry. Give it as a gift to your married friends and family who have forgotten what it’s like to be single, since they keep asking, When are you gonna get married?
— Lara Dyan, cohost, Chick-Chat Radio
“While so many books on the market for single women try to teach readers how to make men love them, this is a book that gives women the steps to help them genuinely love themselves. Better yet, Michelle Cove offers these steps in a friendly, compassionate, even humorous tone so it feels like spending time with your wisest best friend.”
—Josie Brown, editor, SingleMindedWomen.com, and coauthor, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Finding Mr. Right
“Michelle Cove delivers. In the opening pages of her book, she says her book will not help the single woman fall in love. Instead she offers strategies for creating lasting love. Her book brims with action plans that enable a woman to ‘use her inner voice.’ Cove believes in joy and balance, not stress and relentless pursuit. I happen to be married and yet the book spoke to me as well. It’s a wake-up call for all women (all people?) to get back in touch with what makes them wonderful, what makes them worth marrying in the first place.”
—Shulamit Reinharz, founder and director, Women’s Studies Research Center and the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute
“Cove talks as if she’s sitting over coffee with you in the kitchen, urging you to listen to your inner voice as well as offering good solid advice—advice you’ll want, regardless your shade of single.”
—Dr. Karen Gail Lewis, author of With or Without a Man: Single Women Taking Control of Their Lives
“What I love so much about this book is its friendly but no-nonsense approach to what it's like being single today, and how much better life can be with just a tweak of your mindset. Michelle Cove’s steps are so specific and easy-to-use that right away readers will learn to tune-out the outside voices questioning them and readers feel truly empowered. This is a book that will inspire single women of all ages to take charge of their lives!”
--Kerry David, award-winning producer of “Seeking Happily Ever After” and "My Date with Drew"
