Perfect on Paper

Waverly book #1: The (Mis)adventures of Waverly Bryson

Waverly Bryson almost has it all: a dream job in sports PR, two loyal best friends, and a neighborhood bar where everybody knows her name. What she doesn’t have is a ring on her finger, but after being left at the altar, she’s in no hurry to go down that road again. Besides, she has other things to worry about, including a wayward father, a new rival at work, and the nagging fear that she’s not living the life she always thought she would … or should.

To keep herself sane, Waverly makes a habit of jotting down “Honey Notes,” self-deprecating bits of single-girl humor that she hopes to one day develop into a line of greeting cards.

Front: Can’t face the dating scene after a breakup?
Inside: Honey, hit the bar, and hit it hard. Beer goggles are the lonely girl’s Cupid.

Front: Is it worse to be fake or bitchy?
Inside: Honey, just face it. If you’re asking, you’re probably both.

Front: Ever feel like you know nothing at all?
Inside: Honey, congratulations. At least you finally know that.

As Waverly stumbles back into the dating scene (no stalkers or jean shorts, please), her personal and professional worlds threaten to collide. Perfect on Paper reminds us that once in a while everyone wonders if they’ll ever figure life out, has a bad date (or twelve), and needs a best friend to say, “Honey, you are not alone.”
