Product Description

Somewhere over the rainbow ... is a giant dumpster. At least, that's how things appear to Frankie Wunder when she discovers her husband's been cheating on her and there are no fairy tale endings on her horizon. But Frankie, a successful South Beach realtor, isn't prepared to leave her future up to the wave of anyone's wand. Determined to find a man who meets her criteria for the perfect husband and father of the child she desperately wants, Frankie goes on a diet, assembles a list of prospective candidates, and immerses herself in the South Beach dating scene. But is a man who's rich, successful, and willing to take care of her what Frankie really wants? As she works her way through a deceitful doctor, a lecherous lawyer, and a rakish real estate executive--the men most South Beach Cinderellas would gladly lose a slipper to--Frankie realizes her dream men are nightmares and her true Prince Charming is nothing like the guy in the fairy tale.

About the Author

Sharon Potts is the award-winning author of IN THEIR BLOOD and SOMEONE'S WATCHING, suspense novels about ordinary people in extraordinary situations set in South Florida. Her work has received numerous awards including the 2010 Benjamin Franklin Award for best mystery/suspense novel, as well as a starred review in Publishers Weekly. A former teacher-turned-CPA-turned-business-exec-turned-writer, Potts isn't good with boundaries. She loves writing about people, relationships, and families, and is as comfortable putting her characters in tense, suspenseful situations as in unpredictable humorous ones. Because after all--isn't that what life's all about? Entertainment Weekly called Sharon Potts an author who looks like she plans "to stick around for a while."

5.0 out of 5 stars Nobody dies, but what a great, funny and fast moving ride! July 19 2011
By Delia Foley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
What can you expect when a thriller writer like Sharon Potts goes about writing a humorous love story about husband-hunting? That question, a big one in my mind, dissolved after the first few pages of "South Beach Cinderella." Potts is back with her trademark flesh and blood characters, this time featuring the lovable heroine Frankie Wunder whose quest I got so wrapped up in that I found myself doing that page turning, can't-put-this- down, thing.

Potts is still in thriller mode as far as keeping the reader on edge to see what happens next. The action clock is always ticking. Frankie's is one of them. Married for 12 years and still childless, she discovers that other women have been getting much more of her husband's loving than she. Frankie is a highly successful Miami Beach realtor and does not dawdle around making decisions. Hubby #1 is history, and Hubby #2 is to be rounded up post haste, marry her, and father a child. All candidtates must be rich, successful, and respected, and must agree to take care of her. Frankie is an organized person and knows how to go about a task, with method and focus. And she is pretty. With the exception of her choice of first husband, she makes few mistakes and is not used anymore to failure.

Frankie, big surprise, turns out to be just like you and me and everyone else, never mind her self-admitted control-freak personality and money-making talents. They are part of what's funny, and eventually Frankie finds that out for her ownself. The real Frankie is a sweet, totally human lady with the same problem we all have, or have had, or are having again - trying to figure out who is the right spouse - and that is whether you are a man or a woman, because guys will like this book as well as any female.

Loads of laughs, great writing, and a sweet story about hetting to know one's heart.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Loveable Ditz Sept. 17 2011
By Germaine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is one of those books that needs the reader to suspend all belief and just read the story. We are supposed to go along with the idea that a smart, sane, contemporary woman who is capable of having a successful career selling houses that go for around $4 million would be capable of hopping into bed with four men she barely knows in the hope of conceiving a child and finding a superb husband within a couple of months of finding her husband cheating on her. It doesn't compute.

Having said that, I did finish this book, and the plot did keep moving right along. The whole book is a series of re-hashed chic lit scenes, but the writer is good enough that I kept on reading. Frankie, the heroine, has some pretty interesting girlfriends, and her soon-to-be ex is a stereotype, but a well-drawn one that I could live with.

Mercifully, the book has fewer of the grammatical errors that plague many e-books.

If we were back in college I'd call this book a solid C.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it. Can't believe I'm saying that Oct. 31 2011
By Juliette Moody - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
but I really liked it. So true of South Beach and the "phonies" who live in it. Being a floridian myself I get it. As for Frankie, yup, I know women like her, so it wasn't far fetched, I mean she's got an agenda even tho it makes no sense, but at least she follows it through. Very fun book. I was surprised how much I liked it, that I even bought her other two books as well. The writing is better in her third book, but the first one was good as well, onto book 2 now. Thanks Sharon keep up the good work.

2.0 out of 5 stars It was ok, disapointed April 20 2012
By anjellyca - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was okay, but very disappointing. I was expecting something along the lines of Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez' writing, but this was kind of a story about a woman whose clock is ticking and she just wants a man to have a baby with. It's obvious throughout the storyline who she'll end up with, and when she does end up with him, it's like this QUICK dramatic ending that leaves you wondering why you read the whole book for - that. :-/ Overall I wouldn't recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and amusing story... March 10 2012
By MsJD2u - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a fun, quick, amusing read for me. Some reviewers dinged the book because it was hard to imagine an intelligent, successful woman throwing herself at rich, powerful men...all in the name of trying to find a man who wanted to be a husband, take care of her, and give her a baby. While I agree that in today's world, a woman in her situation would more likely chose to have her baby and be a single mother until the "right" man was found, I found it entertaining to read all the ways she conspired to meet her objectives. I really think the author meant for this story to be somewhat fanciful so that it would be more amusing rather than depict a realistic struggle. With that said, I quickly read the book, enjoyed the heroine's "journey"...and did not have to identify at a personal level to feel her pain. Although the plot and moral of the story were predictable, Sharon's method of writing makes this a fun read, and I highly recommend this book if you want to read something light and entertaining.
