You Have to Kiss a Lot of Frogs

“I never knew bad dates could be so good.”
—Kelly Ripa

Publishers Weekly

“A jaunty trek through the dating minefield in search of Mr. Right. Karrie handles the frogs with heart, humor, and hubris. Look for the sequel.”

“Graff put the litany of losers, Casanovas, weirdos, and plain old bad choices to work for her in her new book, You Have to Kiss a Lot of Frogs.”
Miami Herald

“More than just a catalogue of loser guys and bad relationships, Graff’s smart and funny novel shows just how hard finding the right man can be and how easy it is for a relationship to fail.”

“We’re rooting for her to find everything she’s been missing—which turns out to be less than she imagines.”
Daily News
