Overview

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.

''South Beach Cinderella'' is a delicious tale of a woman-done-wrong who triumphs. Frankie Wunder cuts her cheating louse of a husband loose, kisses a few frogs, and finally discovers that whole Prince Charming thing is SO over. How can you not root for a gal who keeps her feet firmly on the ground, even when her head's in the clouds? Sharon Potts's funny new novel is like ''Sex and the City,'' only a lot more real.
Deborah Sharp, author of ''Mama Sees Stars,'' the fourth Mace Bauer Mystery.

"A laugh-out-loud page-turner for every woman whose Prince Charming turns out to be a frog. If you like Susan Isaacs and Jennifer Weiner, you'll love Sharon Potts!"
Miriam Auerbach, author of "Dirty Harriet" and "Dirty Harriet Rides Again."

Meet 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."
