Dating the wrong man was not a casual endeavor for Samantha Stewart; it was turning into a lifelong career. At thirty-five, Sam was a never-married, baseball-loving, successful engineer, whose chances of finding true love, having kids and living semihappily ever after were looking bleaker with every passing baseball season. Her only guides along the way are her best friend, Marta, and "the twins"--her two inner voices--that continually give conflicting advice. Finally deciding to "get serious" about finding The One, Sam and Marta create a magical man list--a divining rod for finding their soul mates. The concept was simple--just make a list of everything you want in the perfect man. After all, you can't get what you want until you know exactly what that is. With their man lists completed, they invent "magical" ceremonies to activate their lists and then wait for their soul mates to arrive. Would their homegrown magic really work? "The Magical Man List" is a humorous tale of searching for love, tripping over romance, and unexpectedly falling in love.
