Dinosaurs & Cherry Stems is a fast & furious, fun little read about life after divorce in the new frontier of internet dating. The narrative conveys the full energy and enthusiasm possessed by Ms. Ricci herself and is told in the conversational tone of a weekend gabfest with your best girlfriend over wine and cheese. It is laid out in a blatantly honest fashion that pulls no punches, even relating the self-deprecating thoughts of the main character when she gets herself into hilarious, but avoidable, situations with various schmucks along her path to finding the gentle and caring man she discovers that she deserves.
But it is not all fun and games. Despite the light-hearted tone, there is an underlying shrewdness and practical wisdom to be gleaned. The only caution I would render would be that if you are squeamish about language or real (though not explicit) sexual situations, beware. Other than that, pick up a copy and let yourself be entertained!
