Divorced, middle-aged Rachel Brinkerhoff, a Jewish matchmaker from New York who hopes to remarry, moved to Toronto for a fresh new start with her business and her love life. But no one told her that female-aversive Toronto was BYOB - Bring Your Own Boy. She partners with an Indian and a Muslim lady who want to help Canadians arrange marriages for their often-recalcitrant children and who secretly wonder over the beautiful matchmaker's datelessness. But then an earthquake shakes up Toronto in more ways than one, and the next thing you know, a public fountain turns into the Fountain of Youth, an army of misfits turn up to stake the world's weirdest Native land claim, and worst of all, a beautiful sensuous woman is stalking Toronto's virgin males and seducing them with horrifying consequences. Can a drop-dead gorgeous, highly neurotic American and her friends save Toronto from certain destruction, or will they have to call in a cure that's worse than the curse?

“Sumer” in Sumer Lovin’ refers to ancient Sumeria, but the story takes place in Toronto, Canada. The story revolves around the search for love (and lust) by several romantically-frustrated characters and Lamashtu, one sex-starved demigoddess, who emerges from an ancient underworld after an earthquake shakes up Toronto. The earthquake opens more than one portal to the underworld, and the next thing they know, a band of hopelessly confused Canaanite warriors emerge to stake the world's weirdest Native land claim. The main character is Rachel Brinkerhoff, a recently relocated New Yorker, who wants to jump-start her love life and career after dumping her psycho Homeland Security macho husband. Rachel soon finds herself falling heads over heels with the general of the Canaanite army and caught up trying to save Toronto’s hapless male virgins from Lamashtu’s deadly appetite. Sumer Lovin’ is a hilarious story and a highly recommended read.
Toronto's males get a hormone shot!, January 31, 2013 I received this book from the author in exchange for a pre-release review. Well, I do not know when I have chuckled so much reading a book. This story is so original and cute! A real page turner! Mahliqa and Amita, An Indian and a Muslim have decided to open an "arranged marriage" company in Toronto. Rachel, a newly divorced Jew from NYC has just moved to Toronto and is setting up a matchmaking business. They meet and decide to join forces. Rachel quickly finds that most men in Toronto looking for love are actually foreigners. (The natives seem to be afraid of women.) Also, all IT guys are named Dave. Both men and women think with their lower parts when looking for the "right" someone. Well cosmic lines vibrate and a goddess emerges from a fountain. Toronto men do indeed notice a naked chick walking down the road! Turns out though, said goddess has a very evil goal...suck the life out of the male virgins so she can get the power to kill all the children. Next come the ancient warriors who got lost looking for Canaan because they misread the map! A fountain of Youth appears. Everyone is becoming sexually excited! Then the mother of the goddess from hell comes and it really gets confusing! She calls on another god to take out her daughter! We have, ancient warriors, goddesses, gerbils, spiders, fen Shui, virgins being sacrificed (albeit male this time. Who will survive? Will anyone find love in Toronto? The ending is just as cute as the whole book! Very Good Read!
