A great philosopher once said, “If you liked it then you should have put a ring on it.” But what if the you in question is, well, yourself? That’s the central question of Dawn Keable’s debut novel Settling Down. Dayna Morrison is 33, smart, successful and – you see where we’re going here – unlucky in love. So she decides to take things into her own hands, literally. Instead of waiting for Mr. Right to give her a ring, she buys one for herself, as a birthday gift. As you can imagine, social scandal and hilarity ensue.

The reasons to like this book are numerous, and not just because Dawn Keable is a former PM writer who just so happened to set her book at a magazine in Rhode Island. It’s funny, for one. Really funny. And a lot smarter than a lot of other “chick lit” books that all get grouped together in an unfairly negative way. Dawn has a quick-witted, engaging style that’s easy to move through, on the beach or off. And really, what’s not to love about a book that’s first line is “Sometimes in life, it’s just better to be drunk”? Find her book on Amazon and at WriteOnGrrrl.com
