Looking for Mr. Goodfrog

Laurie Graff, Author Red Dress Ink $12.95 (329p) ISBN 978-0-373-89573-1
Narrator Karrie Kline returns with her stories of frogs that never turn to princes in this follow-up to You Have to Kiss a Lot of Frogs. As Karrie turns her tales of dating woe into a successful one-woman show, it seems that being an expert on bad dates doesn't guarantee she'll get good ones. She tries out Internet dating and interviews some old love interests (a move lifted from Nick Hornsby's High Fidelity) to get to the bottom of ""dating over forty."" A holiday trip to her mother's retirement community in Palm Beach is a refreshing move: The visit provides her with a chance to compare the change in relationships from one generation to the next, as she scrutinizes ""the different steps in the mating dance of the post World War II world"" and hears her aunt's nostalgic stories of love over coffee and a game of mahjong. While Graff doesn't break any new ground, she offers a fun tour of New York, and readers will welcome the return of her smart narrator.
