'"Relationships in New York are about detachment, so how do you get attached when you decide you want to?" "Honey, you leave town."' Meet Carrie, Miranda, Sam and their stylish friends. Successful, attractive, thirty-something career women living the high life in New York; blazing a glorious cocktail trail from the Bowery Bar to the Baby Doll Lounge; holidaying in the Hamptons and going to Aspen by Lear Jet. But they have more in common than just their enviable lifestyle; they're all searching for lasting love. Finding it is easier said than done in a town full of gorgeous, single, rich men, none of whom want to settle down. Toxic bachelors and serial daters are a perennial problem - but maybe Mr. Big will be different?
