Sunny’s not sure she’s even looking for Mr. Maybe, when her friends decide to find her Mr. Right. Sunny Vale considers herself a dog-loving, romance-reading homebody. But her life goes from dull to deadly when her book club fires her from her own love life and sets her up on six blind dates–one of whom might be with a murderer.
More trouble arrives in the dead of night, in the form of Jake Landon, a mysterious stranger, who breaks into her neighbor’s house and possibly her heart. But Jake is packing more than a loaded gun in his well-fitting Levi’s. He brings an arsenal of secrets and plenty of heat to Sunny’s ho-hum summer.
Jake Landon finds himself caught up in the capers of the sexy blonde in the house next door. But he has his own agenda which doesn’t involve playing hero to a curvy second-grade teacher and babysitting her panty-puking puppy. He’s got other problems like fiery explosions, a missing person…and a parade of jerks Sunny insists on dating. Could Sunny’s Mr. Right be right under her nose? Even though Jake is gorgeous, likes her dog, and has abs she can crack an egg on, can she really go out with him if he’s just murdered her next door neighbor?
Women of all ages will enjoy this tale of humorous, women’s fiction that also has a touch of cozy mystery in this small town love story.
** I received a copy of this book from the author, in exchange for an honest review. **
I really enjoyed reading this book! It was a brilliant piece of chick-lit!
Quirky, mysterious, bat-s**t crazy and funny, I spent a large portion of thie book laughing out loud!
The book was fast moving, something was always going on to keep you hooked, whether it be the element of mystery, the fantastic humour, or the romance.
The character development was fab, and I really found myself invested in all of the crazy character’s live’s.
By about 40% of the book, we read from the POV of at least 3 different characters, with more to come later on. At first, this did become slightly confusing, and not too easy to keep up with!
However, you soon get into the flow of it, and as it is quite a long book (325 pages), it does help to break up the story and keep things fresh and exciting!
It was a super funny, exciting read, and a real breath of fresh air!
