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 romantic comedy tale of humorous, women’s fiction, that also has a touch of cozy mystery in this small town love story.


I loved how this story hits mystery and romance with a humorous side. As Sunny’s friends set her up on dates that go from bad to the freakin’ worst date of her life, she’s caught up in her neighbor’s disappearance. The amateur sleuthing was great too, reeling you in for some brow scratching speculation and grin-splitting comments from Edna (She’s a hoot too!). It also doesn’t hurt that eye candy Jake makes Sunny’s heart skip a beat whenever he’s close. There were a few surprises and several ‘this cannot be happening’ moments. As the author takes you through Sunny’s weekly escapades, her friends inspire her with their support, good times, and funny anecdotes. Each scene builds on the next until you’re not quite sure where this story will take you. I liked the ‘not everything is as it seems’ moment with a happy conclusion at the end. This book is a great read, well written, and nice way to spend an afternoon.
