Single in the City is the story of Hannah, an American from the small state of Connecticut, who decides she needs to make a few changes in her life. Rather than doing what most red-blooded women would do and get a haircut or start a new diet, she jets off to a new country with no friends, no job, and nothing to hold onto as she navigates her way through modern day London. Michele Gorman must have lived the life of an ex-pat in London because the subtle differences in life, culture, and language are well thought out and hilariously executed. Hannah is definitely an ‘act first, think later’ kind of girl and that adds to the fun and humor found in this story.

We’re with Hannah from the moment she lands and tries to order a tuna sandwich, through her making new friends and entering the murky waters of big city dating. Through it all, Hannah and the odd cast of characters that make up her inner circle tread it all with humor, spunk, wit, and more than a hint of awkwardness. Of course, a book like Single in the City wouldn’t be complete without a few dating mishaps and dear Hannah has them in spades. There are no Mr. Darcys or Victorian gentlemen in this London and we’re privy to her innermost thoughts and mistakes after each Prince Charming audition. Michele Gorman writes a fantastically hilarious story, poking fun at both Americans and the British while dispelling long held stereotypes of each. This was a fun journey through the streets and countryside of London that any ex-pat or Anglophile will savor and laugh out loud while reading.
