Lindsey Palmer's latest novel is about something we all know about a little too well: the horrors of New York City apartment hunting. Thirtysomething couple Emma and Nick are in love, successful and ready to build their life together, under one roof. But as you know, finding the perfect apartment is a long process, full of unexpected --- and unwanted --- surprises.

Meanwhile, Emma's best friend is getting married and planning an idyllic suburban life, picket fence and all. Her so-seeming perfect life makes Emma question her relationship with Nick and need to live in one of the most expensive cities in the world.
