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 novel-loving 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 neighbour?

A fun romantic-comedy mystery with a wonderful cast of characters and plenty of laugh out loud moments.
Sunny is cute, hilarious and goofy. Her disastrous series of first dates had me in stitches!
Jake was adorable as the hunky, helpful next door neighbour. I loved how Sunny debriefed him at the end of each of her dates. They had a cute relationship starting from how they first met which was really funny. I loved this couple so much.
The mystery aspect of the story was much lighter in plot; a missing person case which resolved pretty quick at the end of the story.
I liked Sunny's group of friends and I will enjoy reading their stories in the rest of the series.
The narration was brilliant. The narrator performed the variety of characters so well I forgot that I was listening to just one voice. I would definitely choose to continue this series in audio format.
