Sunny Vale yearns for excitement. Not that teaching 2nd graders wasn’t exciting, but it didn’t compare to the hot romance novels she loved to read. Then she becomes entranced by the sudden arrival of a sexy, new neighbor. But then what happened to her other old neighbor?
In the midst of this strange mystery, Sunny’s book club schemes to set her up on a blind date each Saturday night, thus beginning a series of clumsy, bad dates. At the end of each disastrous date, Sunny would come home weary and exhausted, but yet still compelled by new neighbor Jake, whom she’s suspicious of and attracted to. Could he have anything to do with Walter’s disappearance?
Story was cute and had its funny moments, but it was also long-winded. It just took forever to get to the point. But I kept on reading because I did wonder what happened to Walter and if Jake was a killer. The ending was not what I expected though.
My rating: 3 stars
