Sulay, my wonder editor over at Touchstone, just sent me the cover copy for More Than This.

She doesn’t know his name and he doesn’t know hers,but they just might be perfect for each other.

Alexander Velazquez, an ambitious lawyer from a working-class neighborhood, and Evelyn Sinclair, a daughter of privilege trying to make it on her own, are strangers living parallel yet very different lives. They are both broken-hearted workaholics constantly trying to keep up with the demands of family and friends.

What they both want is to find meaning in their lives, what they’re doing is looking in the wrong direction. There’s no way they’re going to take a chance on someone they happened to lock eyes with in a crowd. A series of missed connections bring them tantalizingly close to meeting, but something or someone always seems to get in the way. Then Alex finds himself deeply entrenched in the life of an unredeemable client and Evelyn realizes she’s committed herself to a company with questionable ethics. As they watch each other through their office windows, all they can do is wonder about what might happen if they finally met the stranger across the street.

They seem to have it all, but sometimes what we have is not enough.
