ACTS OF LOVE is a wonderfully romantic love story to make your heart soar, perfect for fans of Curtis Sittenfeld's Eligible.
Bernadette knows what she wants.
Tim is perfect, and she's always had a feeling that something is about to happen between them.
He might have just announced his engagement to the sickeningly wonderful Elizabeth, but the ring's not on his finger yet.
And when Elizabeth starts meddling in Bernie's own love life, she knows it's time to act.
Yes, Elizabeth's best friend Radley might be charming, charismatic and intelligent.
But he's not Tim.
And Bernadette's not a woman who takes no for an answer.
