Dinosaurs and Cherry Stems was a semi-finalist in The Kindle Book Reviews 2013, Best Indie Book Awards.

Twice divorced, cynical Cindy Layton feels like a relic with prehistoric baggage, and doubts she can muster the courage to establish a new relationship, even if it’s on her own terms.

Her journey out of the Stone Age hits freaky, hilarious turbulence when she joins an Internet dating service. The scammers and weirdos she meets in cyberspace make Cindy want to crawl back into her cave, until she receives an accidental email from Jay DeMatteo.

Jay has the dating blues, too, but after meeting Cindy, reconsiders his options. Now it’s up to him to convince her it’s never too late to pursue a meaningful relationship, even when a couple is struggling with midlife adolescence.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Anyone who has suffered through the ups and downs of relationships…especially the trauma of divorce…should read this book! Cleverly written and very enjoyable, it also imparts wisdom most helpful.


Just the unusual title of this book should make you grab it up. The entire book is as creative as the title, from beginning to end. I guarantee you will laugh a lot, but it is much more than a comedy. It takes you down many avenues of recovering from a divorce, and the excitement of a new life.


This novel goes down like a hot fudge sundae. You have the feeling that it’s a quick, easy read, but that’s because Susan Ricci’s prose is so smooth. But once it’s in the belly, you’re full and it will take you a good long while to feel like eating again.


In addition to the well crafted story, words of wisdom are dropped like little gifts inside the pages as well. I very much enjoyed the true-to-life characters in dire need of a “free pass” every now and again. The words, the premise, is highly relatable and thoroughly enjoyable. I sincerely look forward to much more from this wonderful author!


Dinosaurs and Cherry Stems is a fast and furious, fun little read about life after divorce in the new frontier of internet dating. The narrative conveys the full energy and enthusiasm possessed by Ms. Ricci herself and is told in the conversational tone of a weekend gabfest with your best girlfriend over wine and cheese.
