Bambi Smyth didn’t want to face the rest of her life being stuck in suburbia as a single, childless, and bored has-been. So she sets off on a journey across the globe to combine her three greatest passions – food, travel and men, hoping to widen her horizons – and maybe her heart – along the way.
And what she finds during dates with seventy-five men as diverse as an Italian prince, a Spanish gigolo, a Japanese sumo-wrestler, and a priest at the Vatican, changes her perception of men – and herself - forever.
