Sorry, Dorothy--sometimes your heart's desire isn't in your own backyard

As head of PR and spokesperson for Lonely Planet travel guides, Jennifer Cox has explored the most remote regions, toured the most exotic terrains, and bonded with people the world over. So how come finding her soul mate in London turns out to be a virtual dead end? Certain that the man of her dreams is out there somewhere, Jennifer sets out on the trip of a lifetime, dating her way around the globe--across 18 countries in 6 months--to find The One.

Around the World in 80 Dates is a fresh, funny, emotionally honest and revealing account of Jennifer's global dating adventures. From the Skate Date in Paris to the High Roller in Vegas, from the Love Professor in Sweden to the Dead Date in Italy, Jennifer tests her chemistry with a bevy of potential partners, assisted by her loyal Date Wranglers. But as she continues to flit from country to country, her adventure takes on a life of its own. If Mr. Right is out there, somewhere, is he worth giving up the trip of a lifetime?

Join Jennifer Cox on a date with Fate and see if travelling the world in search of love really is a passport to happiness.
