Nope...Mars is the next planet out.
Sun -> Mercury -> Venus -> Earth -> Mars....
If it were closer in to the sun, then its year would be shorter (faster planetary orbits closer to the sun). But the length of its day would depend on its rotation on its axis, not its distance from the sun.
I stand gracefully corrected. Thank you Phobos.
