For any woman who has ever bought a self-help book and wondered why she bothered. (P.S. Now that I know he's just not that into me, where do I go from there? Yeah, thanks for that advice.)

Jennifer Love Hewitt is a self-proclaimed "love-aholic" and hopeless romantic (her middle name is Love, after all!). She has been lucky and unlucky in love, and lived to tell--and she's done it all in the spotlight. Much has been written about her love life--some true, most made up to sell magazines. Now Hewitt shares the real story of what she's learned navigating the dangerous dating waters.

In The Day I Shot Cupid, Hewitt offers her hard-won wisdom and tells us how to embrace love with both feet on the ground. First, we have to shoot Cupid. We have to believe that happily-ever-after is hard work--it's not all flowers and symphonies and floating hearts.

Wise and wry and refreshingly honest, Hewitt talks about how to pick the right guy and how to know when to let the wrong ones go free, and she offers some surprising truths about the opposite sex.

From twenty things to do after a breakup, to ten things to do before a date, to the perils of text flirting (Note: You are waiting. By the phone. For his response.), Hewitt uses stories and dating secrets to illustrate the idiotic, romantic, crazy, depressing, hilarious, awkward, glorious moments we all experience in relationships. Funny, quirky, and empowering, The Day I Shot Cupid deserves a place on every woman's nightstand, bookshelf, or coffee table, or tucked inside her oversized designer handbag.

This novel was okay not sure if I would read another one by her if she wrote a new novel

Very funny and has a good point!

I was surprised to find that Hewitt had written a book, I being familiar with some of her films though not having watched the shows that she's known for. So far, it seems interesting if with somewhat misguided advice. Easy and basically pleasant to read.

I don't agree with some of her advice but the book is easy/pleasant to read.

I am ashamed to admit I had to Google Jennifer Love Hewitt so I could place her. I don’t follow the gossip rags, but even I realize how lucky I am to not have the ups and downs of my love life (or lack thereof) splashed across headlines for everyone to see. Dating is painful enough; I can’t imagine having to relive bad breakups via the tabloids.
