I knew I wanted to read this book as soon as I read the description. Not only did it have the cozy mystery feel (one of my favorite genres), the main character is a dog-loving book fanatic who is a member of a book club! Sounds like someone I know oh wait ME! I related to Sunny right away in that we both lead quiet lives and are sort of home bodies. She reads a lot of books and fantasizes about living those book lives, all with her best pal, Beau, a precocious dog, by her side. So the story is t [...]
I highly recommend this fun story! It's a cross between a romantic comedy and a cozy mystery. It's laugh-out-loud funny and heart warming, all rolled into one. Sunny's dates, her fellow book club members, and her new hot, sexy neighbor, all make for a great read! I can't wait to see what's in store for the other members of the Pleasant Valley Page Turners Book Club in the next book in this series!
A great LMAO read!Jennie Marts has created a laugh out loud, rip roaring romantic comedy novel that I just could not put down! Read along as you meet Sunny, a twenty something 2nd grade school teacher whose idea of excitement consists of eating ice cream & reading steamy pirate romance novels. Enter the Page Turner's Reading club, who decide it is time for Sunny to get out and start meeting people. They decide to set her up on 6 blind dates during summer break, hoping she will meet Mr. Right [...]

Another Saturday Night and I Ain't Got Nobody is a hilarious, laugh-out-loud, mysteries good time!Sunny's friend decide that Sunny needs to find her match, even if she is not sure of this herself. They each take turn picking a guy for Sunny every Saturday night. The date's range from funny, weird, sad, and boring. During all the crazy dating, Sunny gets close to the new guy Jake. But the problem with Jake, he may have possibly killed Sunny's next door neighbor, Walter. Yeah, I would say that wou [...]
Cute cozy mystery/chick lit romance with lots of fun characters. Unfortunately the main character, Sunny, was so DULL. She doesn't like to do anything. She doesn't like adventure (yes, someone who hates surprises and adventures we are supposed to believe wants to solve a mystery). There were lots of humorous parts, which were great, and I thought the mystery was handled fairly well, even as it was in the background to Sunny's dating life. I enjoyed her friends (particularly Edna and Piper) and h [...]
Such an enjoyable read. I was really looking for something light and funny, and this gave me it perfectly. It was interesting, funny and it felt real. I fell into this world and was sad to leave it. Loved Sunny, she was a breath of fresh air. I loved all of the dates she went on, and looked forward to them as much as her interactions with Jake. What a great read! If you want something missing that heavy drama that I find to be exhausting sometimes, then I definitely recommend you give this a try [...]
When I approached the author in a group where authors ask for people to review their books, I saw this one. What drew me what the cover of this book, its very eye catching. My second thought was, that it looks a bit like a chic lit book/choc lit and I don't often read them. So, I read inside the preview and thought I'd give it a read. I can honestly say that I LOVED this book. It had me laughing out loud in some places. Oh Don't be mistaken, its not a usual love story, there is mystery, possible [...]
I just finished this book. It reminded me of more of a romantic comedy with a few zany ladies thrown in. There were parts that were serious, but basically a light and fluffy read. The dating trip for Sunny was comical. I enjoyed her neighbors and her book club friends. The Pleasant Valley Page Turners Book Club can easily be a series and I think it should! The cutest thing was her friends were not cookie cutter friends. her neighbor was a lot older and sort of off her rocker, but Sunny really ca [...]
This book was all over the place! All the characters, the main characters are beautiful people, talented, smart and wonderful. The senior character in the book is obnoxious and trashy. There is no reason for the plot of trying to find "Sunny" a date, she gets hit on all the time, and is pretty much in love with the new neighbor and he with her. But we have to go on all these ridiculous drawn-out dates, and a long weird story about a missing neighbor. It's all so convoluted and strange, I can't e [...]
This was such a great book. The first I have read from Jennie Marts. It was so funny. It centers on Sunny and her neighbors in a cul de sac and also her friends from her once a week book club. Her friends all decide Sunny needs to get a dating life so they talk her into six weekend blind dates. These turn out to be hilarious. Sunny is interested in her neighbors grandson, Jake. As Jake searches for his grandfather and Sunny goes on her dates alot happens in between. This is a great read and wort [...]
Oh my. I can only gush about this book. Thoroughly adorable lead female with a group of hilarious and charming friends to support her, a very hot lead male to fall in love with, an intriguing mystery to solve and some very hilarious dates to laugh at. A well crafted, terrific story with brilliant characterisation that is a whole lot of fun. I can't wait to read Jennie's next offerings.
I just loved this book. Laughed out loud and even shed a tear. Edna was a hoot and the hilarious dates of Sunny had me smiling from ear to ear. Jake was sexy and all of the characters came to life in this book. The book probably could have ended two chapters earlier, but still so worth the read. A great romance with some mystery intertwined and lots of laughs
I really enjoyed this book. It was a sweet and funny story about a book club whose members a bit too nosey. It will put a smile on your face and make you wish you had friends who cared so much! Sunny has some of the worst dates in history! There are lots of laughs for the reader!
Loved the characters, the story line, the book! This book had me cracking up over Sunny's disastrous blind dates. I was rooting for her and Jake the whole time. There wasn't a character I didn't love. Hope the author writes a follow up!
Great, light read! I enjoyed the characters and the humor. I live in Colorado Springs, so the local references were great too.
Oh man, I really enjoyed this book. Right off the bat I enjoyed the MC, Sunny, and I absolutely loved her older neighbor Edna. She literally had me cracking up, thus giving it away to my coworkers that I was reading instead of working. Oh well, this story was worth it. Sunny's other friends added more dimension to Sunny and made me wish I had friends like that, or at the very least a book club like that.Sunny was such a goof that I couldn't help falling for her, and her blind dates were so disas [...]

Cozy Mystery, Chick Lit, and Women’s Fic – this book is a very entertaining hybrid of all my favorite genres and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Schoolteacher Sunny Vale is a very likable and relatable heroine. She lives in small town Colorado, has an adorable golden retriever named Beau, a good relationship with her neighbors, and a wonderful group of friends. What she doesn’t have is a social life, but all that changes when the ladies in her book club decide to take turns setting her up [...]
Fabulously fun read! Great premise and fun, quirky characters draw you in and take you on a wonderful ride. The action begins quickly and with each turn of the page, you're drawn into Sunny's world. And Sunny's world is generally that of a quiet school teacher's. However, this summer, her life becomes chaotic and full of mystery beginning with the blind dates her well-meaning friends set her up on because she needs some excitement in her life.Little do they know, the excitement of the dates, alo [...]
Sunny is a girl who likes a quiet life: curling up on the sofa with a good book and a good dog. Her friends try to help find a good man to go with it. The members at her reading club set her up with some terrible blind dates, but surely the guy who's just moved next door couldn't be any worse? Can Sunny gloss over the minor detail that he carries a gun? Or that he arrived soon after the mysterious disappearance of the previous neighbor?A well-written rom com with a splash of mystery, that crackl [...]
This book was cute and fun and the ending was great. Some things I could figure out, but others I was lost on (and I love that). I love how the book had clear main characters, but the author made the story about everyone, gave everyone their chance in the spotlight. At first I thought it was a little awkward, but I changed my mind quickly and got into it. I kind of reminded me of Love Actually. :) The best thing about the story are the characters. They were strong personalities and I loved that- [...]
GOT BOOK AS A GIVEAWAY THROUGH FIRST READS.LOVE THIS BOOK. It had me laughing at times. Especially loved the main characters, Jake and Sunny, and found myself wanting to know when they finally got together. You can feel the chemistry they had together as if they were actually standing in the room with you and you can feel it.I also like the other characters in the book. I liked how this book ventured out into pieces of the other characters lives. Let you see how it all connects to each other an [...]
Another Saturday Night and I Ain’t Got No Body by Jennie Marts.I really liked the book. I was cracking up at times. Starts off with Neighbor Edna seeing a man at another neighbors house and has a gun. Well Edna gets talking to Sunny and they get to thinking they haven’t seen the old guy Walter in days. Their thinking he must of done something to him. O did I mention how handsome this guy is. Then we have the ladies group who gets together reading books deciding they think Sunny needs a man s [...]
I responded to a blog post about Another Saturday Night and I Ain't Got No Body (A Page Turners Novel, #1) by Jennie Marts and was lucky enough to receive a complimentary copy. This book was really fun to read. Although Sunny was the main protagonist, each of her friends in The Page Turners had her own strand and voice. I loved the tension between Sunny and Jake, the mysterious hottie who turns up next door at the same time her elderly neighbor disappears. Coincidence???d the Page Turners attemp [...]
Now, that's a really-really light spring reading, perfect for reading on the underground, on the bus, in the bath, so anywhere and anytime you do not want to think too deep thoughts. Or just do not want to think, period. That is not to say that it is not a good book, it is perfect in its own genre: a fun to read chick-lit, with a nice, dorky heroine with delightfully crazy friends and of course a guy to fall for. So recommended to everyone who needs a little walk outside the daily routine.
Loved this book. I laughed out loud at so many points throughout. I enjoyed the mysteries, the numerous references to pop culture, and the amateur detective work of the book club. I also loved how this book brought several of the characters to life, not just the "main" hero and heroine. I can't wait to read more of Jennie's books.
What a cute story. All of the characters are easy to identify with, likable and realistic, of course our hero is a little perfect. It's funny and heartwarming. Overall, I'd say it is a really good book.
