After attending yet another bridal shower for friend who has finally found “the one,” struggling New York actress Karrie Klein takes a good hard look at her life. She is 45 and still single despite years of serious dating. Could it be that her Prince Charming was among the many frogs she has thrown back over the years? Did she somehow overlook the one meant for her?

In You Have To Kiss A Lot Of Frogs Karrie takes a closer look at all the prospects she has had over the years. With each chapter depicting another relationship, Karrie takes the reader on a journey through her last fifteen years of finding Mr. Wrong.

In her debut novel Laurie Graff has created a delightful tale that’s pure entertainment. With catchy chapter titles like Cheesecake Delight, My Worst Date…Almost, and That’s All, Folks just to name a few Ms. Graff looks at one woman’s journey looking for Mr. Right. At times funny, at times sad, Ms. Graff will make each reader see a bit of themselves in Karrie’s experiences. I often found myself nodding in agreement with the things Karrie goes through on her journey as I have had experiences that are all too similar in the dating world.

You Have To Kiss A Lot Of Frogs is guaranteed to make you laugh out loud and you may even shed a tear or two but most of all you will be highly entertained by Ms. Graff’s honest look into the dating world and the ever elusive search for that Prince Charming. I anxiously await Ms. Graff’s next release.
