Los Angeles greeting-card artist Wollie Shelley is dating forty men in sixty days as research for a radio talk show host's upcoming book. Wollie is meeting plenty of eligible bachelors but not falling in love, not until she stumbles over a dead body en route to Rio Pescado-a state-run mental hospital-and is taken hostage by a charismatic "doctor" who is on the run from the Mob. Wollie fears that her beloved brother, a paranoid schizophrenic living at Rio Pescado, is involved in the murder, so rather than go to the authorities, she decides to solve the crime on her own. As she meets up with an array of small-time crooks and swaggering mobsters only slightly more sinister than the men she's been dating, Wollie realizes that to find true love she'll first have to avoid getting killed!

Professional reviews

"Listeners are swept into the wacky world of Los Angeles greeting card artist Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley--Wollie--and her paranoid-schizophrenic brother, P.B., who resides at Rio Pescado, a mental hospital. Deanna Hurst's engaging and sensitive reading embodies Wollie, who manages to deal with a murder, the Mafia, an appealing but mysterious love interest, and a killer in the course of this story. She also tries to date 40 guys in 60 days to earn $5,000 as part of a research project. Hurst keeps the action moving at a fast pace and the quirky characters realistic. Her performance reflects the story's humor as well as its dramatic ebb and flow. Overall, Hurst is well suited to this romantic mystery. S.C.A. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
