From the Back Cover:

It didn't start out as the worst day of Natalie Miller's life. . . .

As the top aide to New York's powerful woman senator, Natalie's moving rapidly up the political ladder. She works hard, stays late, and enjoys every bit of it. Then her neglected boyfriend announces he's leaving. But that's only the beginning. Her doctor gives her the worst news any woman can hear, and suddenly the life Natalie needs to change is her own.

The time has come for her to overcome her strange obsession with The Price Is Right and take a tough look at the choices she's made. She'll start by tracking down the five loves of her life in order to assess what went wrong. And by revisiting her past, Natalie just might discover exciting new paths to unexplored places--and learn how to stop barreling through life long enough to really embrace it.
