From the author of the bestselling The Inn at Lake Devine and Isabel's Bed comes this delicious novel about a woman jilted at the altar and a man who has the audacity to show up and apologize -- thirty years later. When the bell rings at the door of Adele Dobbin, the jilted bride, in walks Harvey Nash -- older, filled with regrets (sort of), more charming and arousable than ever, and just in from the coast where he's reinvented himself as Nash Harvey, composer of jingles. Now, at the scene of his romantic crime, this old flame becomes an improbable catalyst for change and disruption in the well-ordered lives of Adele and her two sisters, Lois and Kathleen. Both comical and compassionate, The Ladies' Man, has all of Lipman's trademark wit, wattage, and social mischief -- with an extra bite. It confirms Elinor Lipman's appointment to the Jane Austen chair of modern American sensibility.
