Sportswriter Jack Byrnes is seeing lots of women...no matter how hard he tries not to.See, a funny thing happened to Jack on the way to his thirtieth birthday. Everywhere he goes, he runs into a woman from his past: there's Mary Ann, whose random appearance in an Arizona airport started this mess; Amy, The One that Got Away, who has abandoned Boston for a fiancé and the Upper West Side; Connie, The Recent Ex who left-and reappeared-without any explanation; Danielle, the Freshman Fling turned bestselling chick lit author; and Nikki, Jack's first kiss, now happily residing in the West Village with the woman of her dreams.Jack believes in a lot of things-his two best friends Bernie and Jeff, the Yankees, cold pizza to cure a hangover, the Yankees-but Fate has never been one of them. Still, this all can't be coincidence. Not when the Ghosts of Relationships Past show up just as Jack has met the perfect woman. The world must be trying to give Jack a signal, and maybe if he can read it right, this time he won't strike out.
