Review

''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."

From the Author

A message from Sharon:
I've never been good with boundaries.  When I'm told something can't or shouldn't be done, I'm usually incited to do it.  For the last few years, my writing impulses have taken me into a world of dark places and suspense. I have put my heart into Jeremy Stroeb and Robbie Ivy and experience the same fears and terror they do as they search for family and truth.  I write novels of suspense and I hope I've done it well.  IN THEIR BLOOD received a starred review from Publishers Weekly and the 2010 Benjamin Franklin Award for best mystery/suspense novel, and SOMEONE'S WATCHING also received kudos from the likes of Booklist and Publishers Weekly.  So why, when I'm on my way to establishing a successful brand as Sharon Potts--suspense novelist, would I decide to go against conventional wisdom and write and publish humorous contemporary fiction? Well, because I like Mozart and Dan Fogelberg and Degas and Picasso.  I'm not a one-track tape. Maybe you aren't, either.  I hope you'll have a look at my latest work--South Beach Cinderella. Yes, it's funny--at least I intended it to be.  But it also has the themes that are important to me and are in everything I write--about family, and what really matters in life. So come meet Frankie Wunder and see why she believes that over the rainbow is a giant dumpster.

More About the Author


As a writer, I never know where I will find inspiration for my next novel. The spark for my newly released thriller, THE DEVIL'S MADONNA, came when I discovered an old tattered carton in an upstairs closet. It was filled with scrapbooks and publicity photos of my mother-in-law, who had been an actress in 1930s Berlin. I was intrigued by the incongruous glamor of the photos, taken shortly before a very dark period in history. And I thought...what if? What if there had been another young, beautiful actress? Perhaps a fearful, desperate woman with a hidden identity. And what if this actress became involved with the wrong people and did things that would haunt her and her descendants throughout their lives? And so I wrote THE DEVIL'S MADONNA, set in present day Miami Beach and 1930s Berlin. In it, a young artist, pregnant with her first child and a recent convert to Judaism, tries to unravel her grandmother's past, never imagining just how terrifying the truth could be.

And I hope you'll also check out my suspense novels,IN THEIR BLOOD, which received a starred review from Publishers Weekly and the 2010 Benjamin Franklin Award for best mystery/suspense novel, and SOMEONE'S WATCHING, which also received kudos from the likes of Booklist and Publishers Weekly. And just for the record, I'm not a one-track tape. Maybe you aren't, either. If you enjoy humorous fiction that will make you think, have a taste of my lighter side with SOUTH BEACH CINDERELLA and GOODBYE NEVERLAND. Yes, they're funny--at least I intended them to be. But they also deal with the themes that are important to me and are in everything I write--about family, and what really matters in life. Thanks for stopping by. Sharon Potts

What can you expect when a thriller writer like Sharon Potts goes about writing a humorous love story about husband-hunting? That question, a big one in my mind, dissolved after the first few pages of "South Beach Cinderella." Potts is back with her trademark flesh and blood characters, this time featuring the lovable heroine Frankie Wunder whose quest I got so wrapped up in that I found myself doing that page turning, can't-put-this- down, thing.

Potts is still in thriller mode as far as keeping the reader on edge to see what happens next. The action clock is always ticking. Frankie's is one of them. Married for 12 years and still childless, she discovers that other women have been getting much more of her husband's loving than she. Frankie is a highly successful Miami Beach realtor and does not dawdle around making decisions. Hubby #1 is history, and Hubby #2 is to be rounded up post haste, marry her, and father a child. All candidtates must be rich, successful, and respected, and must agree to take care of her. Frankie is an organized person and knows how to go about a task, with method and focus. And she is pretty. With the exception of her choice of first husband, she makes few mistakes and is not used anymore to failure.

Frankie, big surprise, turns out to be just like you and me and everyone else, never mind her self-admitted control-freak personality and money-making talents. They are part of what's funny, and eventually Frankie finds that out for her ownself. The real Frankie is a sweet, totally human lady with the same problem we all have, or have had, or are having again - trying to figure out who is the right spouse - and that is whether you are a man or a woman, because guys will like this book as well as any female.

Loads of laughs, great writing, and a sweet story about hetting to know one's heart.

This is one of those books that needs the reader to suspend all belief and just read the story. We are supposed to go along with the idea that a smart, sane, contemporary woman who is capable of having a successful career selling houses that go for around $4 million would be capable of hopping into bed with four men she barely knows in the hope of conceiving a child and finding a superb husband within a couple of months of finding her husband cheating on her. It doesn't compute.

Having said that, I did finish this book, and the plot did keep moving right along. The whole book is a series of re-hashed chic lit scenes, but the writer is good enough that I kept on reading. Frankie, the heroine, has some pretty interesting girlfriends, and her soon-to-be ex is a stereotype, but a well-drawn one that I could live with.

Mercifully, the book has fewer of the grammatical errors that plague many e-books.

If we were back in college I'd call this book a solid C.

but I really liked it. So true of South Beach and the "phonies" who live in it. Being a floridian myself I get it. As for Frankie, yup, I know women like her, so it wasn't far fetched, I mean she's got an agenda even tho it makes no sense, but at least she follows it through. Very fun book. I was surprised how much I liked it, that I even bought her other two books as well. The writing is better in her third book, but the first one was good as well, onto book 2 now. Thanks Sharon keep up the good work.

This book was okay, but very disappointing. I was expecting something along the lines of Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez' writing, but this was kind of a story about a woman whose clock is ticking and she just wants a man to have a baby with. It's obvious throughout the storyline who she'll end up with, and when she does end up with him, it's like this QUICK dramatic ending that leaves you wondering why you read the whole book for - that. :-/ Overall I wouldn't recommend.

This was a fun, quick, amusing read for me. Some reviewers dinged the book because it was hard to imagine an intelligent, successful woman throwing herself at rich, powerful men...all in the name of trying to find a man who wanted to be a husband, take care of her, and give her a baby. While I agree that in today's world, a woman in her situation would more likely chose to have her baby and be a single mother until the "right" man was found, I found it entertaining to read all the ways she conspired to meet her objectives. I really think the author meant for this story to be somewhat fanciful so that it would be more amusing rather than depict a realistic struggle. With that said, I quickly read the book, enjoyed the heroine's "journey"...and did not have to identify at a personal level to feel her pain. Although the plot and moral of the story were predictable, Sharon's method of writing makes this a fun read, and I highly recommend this book if you want to read something light and entertaining.

When Frankie Wunder discovers her husband cheating on her with a billboard bimbo, she pursues a divorce and a man to father her child with the same alacrity. Unfortunately, she has to kiss a lot of frogs before she meets her prince. What she thinks she wants--a guy who is rich, steadfast, and who will take care of her--isn't necessarily what fate has in store. She has to learn more about herself before she can cast aside her illusions and find true love. South Beach Cinderella is a hilarious contemporary story about searching for love in all the wrong places.
