Travel journalist Jennifer Cox loved her job but hated her love life. Were the two somehow related, she wondered? And if so could she not try to make it her job to meet Mr Right? In search of the man of her dreams, Jennifer begins to organise her global network, asking friends, business colleagues and friends of friends (all of them more affectionately known as Date Wranglers) to set her up with every interesting, unusual, special or simply gorgeous guy they can find in their little black books - as long as they fit Jennifer's Soul Mate Job Description. Date in Italy and the High Roller in Vegas; from the one-legged journalist in China to the Chief of the Harbour police in Sydney, Jennifer travels around the world: 80 men, in 22 countries, on 5 continents, in 8 months. But Jennifer has strict rules about dating, as well as a certain set of expectations, and as she struggles with doubts, excess baggage and date fatigue, she starts to wonder if it is actually really possible to seek and find Mr Right? And what would happen if she did track him down? Only time, travel and 80 dates would tell...

Good idea for a book, but found it kind of boring.

Fast and easy read. Enjoyable because of the premise - writing style is just ok.
