    It is not that easy being a single late twenties female living in New York City. Everyone Jane sees seems paired and her closest friends want to set her up with someone one so she can share in coupling bliss. Her cousin Dana is marrying in two months and Jane desperately wants a date to quiet her relatives about her prospects. Her best friend's husband knows a lot of eligible males, so Jane agrees to go on a series of blind dates. Each one starts with tremendous promise, but each time fizzles into failure at least from Jane's perspective.

    While Jane struggles to find a date for the upcoming nuptials, she seeks a promotion at work because after six years as a great assistant editor, she believes it is past time to get a promotion. To gain her professional goal, Jane must work closely on a project with Natasha, a woman she despises since they were children in the same Queens neighborhood. Jane is striking out on both fronts, but to know for sure how it all turns out, read SEE JANE DATE.

    This is a serio-comic look at life for a single woman in New York. Readers will like the cast especially the intelligently drawn lead player. Anyone who ever resided in the big city knows a Jane story, but Melissa Senate brings humor, passion, and poignancy to a delightful person that makes the Red Dress Ink imprint start at a high level of quality.
