After years of failing at the dating game while her friends paired off with their respective Mr. Right with a tsunami of weddings, a financially and emotionally broke perpetual guest Ashleigh decides no more men. However, kismet strikes almost as soon as the thirty-something muttered no males when she meets Michael with his odd attire at a party.

They hit it off and months later, Ashleigh thinks of their future with children. Everything changes when her hunk obtains a promotion. Instead of Ashleigh and offspring, Michael upgrades into a player. She learns he dumped her when he changes his relationship status on Facebook and defriends her. While in denial as she refuses to accept he ended it, Ashleigh stalks Michael giving him flowers, messages on-line and casting paranormal spells. Her friend Becky and her brother Lucas warn Ashleigh to move on as the rat has a new girlfriend Miss Well-Sprung.

Getting Over Mr. Right is a witty look at the end of a relationship in the social networking era as Ashleigh goes through the five stages of grief customized with voodoo spell-casting. Readers will appreciate Chrissie Manby’s profound storyline as moving on by Getting Over Mr. Right seems wrong to Ashleigh.
