How Do You Know? by Meredith Schorr
Life doesn’t happen on a schedule, there are no deadlines in love, and age is just a number.
On the eve of her thirty-ninth birthday, Maggie Piper doesn’t look,
act, or feel much different than she did at twenty-nine, but with her
fortieth birthday speeding toward her like a freight train, she wonders
if she should. The fear of a slowing metabolism, wrinkling of her skin,
and the ticking of her biological clock leaves Maggie torn between a
desire to settle down like most of her similarly aged peers and concern
that all is not perfect in her existing relationship. When a spontaneous
request for a temporary “break” from her live-in boyfriend results in a
“break-up,” Maggie finds herself single once again and only twelve
months from the big 4.0.
As Maggie reenters the New York City dating jungle, suitors present
themselves quickly, but who is “The One?” Is he a sexy coworker, one of
many bachelors at a speed-dating event, or is he the man she already set
free? How do you know? Her fun-loving friends and supportive family,
including meddlesome “no-filter” Aunt Helen, eagerly share their (often
unsolicited) opinions, but Maggie is determined to find her own way,
even if she falls on her face—repeatedly.

Just Friends With Benefits by Meredith Schorr
When a friend urges Stephanie Cohen not to put all her eggs in one
bastard, the advice falls on deaf ears. Stephanie's college crush on
Craig Hille has been awakened thirteen years later as if soaked in a can
of Red Bull and she is determined not to let the guy who got away once,
get away twice. Stephanie, a 32-year-old paralegal from Washington,
D.C., is a 70's and 80's television trivia buff who can recite the
starting lineup of the New York Yankees and go beer for beer with the
guys. And despite her failure to get married and pro-create prior to
entering her thirties, she has so far managed to keep her overbearing
mother from sticking her head in the oven. Just Friends with Benefits is
the humorous story of Stephanie's pursuit of love, her adventures in
friendship, and her journey to discover what really matters.
