Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0452287456, Paperback)To catch the perfect man, she had to become the perfect lady.
At thirty-one, Jane Spring has everything a woman could ask for and seemingly everything a man could long for—great legs, brains, rising star status in the Manhattan D.A.’s office—but she just can’t find a man who’ll fall madly in love with her. Men are always lining up to ask her out, but for some reason no one wants a second date.
So Jane resolves to change her tack. One snowy night while watching a Doris Day marathon on cable it hits her: Doris Day always got her man. Trading her nondescript black pantsuit for petal pink Chanel and pearls, Jane dyes her hair, stops cursing, softens her voice, paints her nails— even her apartment—and embarks on a fun-filled journey to find the smart, sweet, gorgeous, capable, ambitious, courageous, loving, adoring, hardworking man of her dreams.

Jane Spring has discovered that twenty-first-century relationships are built on a myth. A successful New York lawyer, she's attractive, strong-minded and self-sufficient - but single. Then one day, she passes a depressing afternoon snowed into her apartment. She turns on the TV and finds a Doris Day marathon. And the revelation hits her: Doris wouldn't be stuck inside alone at a weekend. Doris wouldn't scare men off. Men are terrified of women like Jane. They really want a cute little blonde with frosted pink lipstick. What they really want is Doris and so Jane Spring sets out to reinvent herself. If that's what men want, that's what she'll give them.
