too easy

Samantha Jones Finally Gets Desperate

50-something woman: I'm looking for a book. It's called something like The Cougar's Guide.
Assistant: you know who it's by?
50-something woman: No. But I heard it just came out. The Cougar's Handbook or something.
Assistant: Well, there's not a lot I can do if you don't know the name or the author.
50-something woman: Can you do a search with the word "cougar"? Or "snare"? I think it had "snare" in the title.
Assistant: Err...okay, I can try.
