  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Divorced and alone, Sarah's (Lane) family thinks it's time she got out and started dating. After her sister Carol (Perkins) signs her up with an online dating service, Sarah immediately gets 18 responses. With the requirement that her suitor "Must Love Dogs," she attracts all sorts of weirdos. But when Jake (Cusack) shows up for their date with the cutest little white pup, Sarah begins to get her hopes up. And when Bob (Mulroney), the father of one of of her students, takes an interest in her too, things really start to get complicated for Sarah. Based on the novel by Claire Cook. (Tricia Spears)
