This is the story of five 50-plus women looking for good men in today's dating world. They try everything from newspaper ads, a cruise, a dance, nightclubs, church single groups and Internet match-making sites, where they meet an array of undesirable and obnoxious male characters. After Sandy Applegate, the main character and narrator, comes up with a plan based on "You have to kiss 50 frogs before you find your prince," her four friends decide to give it a try. However, they continue to meet frogs and find themselves in bizarre and often embarrassing situations.
They finally change match-making sites on the advice of an old friend, where Sandy meets a handsome doctor. But she embarrasses herself on their first date and discovers that she is a frog. After making some personal changes and setting their sights higher, the gals begin to experience a change of luck on this new match-making site. Spying on each other, a surprise 50-year pregnancy, a series of mishaps and outrageous doggie behavior moves the story along. In the end, each gal finds her prince or princes.
Woven into the story is Sandy's neurotic pint-sized English bulldog, who creates havoc for his mistress and all who meet him, especially the gentlemen callers. This odd little pooch leads Sandy straight to her prince--a "Canine Behavior Specialist." Winchester also finds happiness with the help of Prozac and a new doggie playmate.
