The novel, published in July by Viking, is a romantic comedy that centers on a woman who was raised by a widowed four-star general father and has grown up to be a ball-breaking prosecutor for the district attorney's office in New York.

"This story is a classic romantic comedy about self-empowerment as well as a devilish commentary on the current state of misconceptions and expectations in the dating world," Peters said.
