Dana Mayo is a whiz at solving puzzles—but only the kind that appear in the daily newspaper. When it comes to matters of the heart, she doesn’t have a clue.
After a disastrous attempt to track down the former love of her life, Dana determines to take fate into her own hands and find a new Mr. Right—preferably one who’s not already married. Soon she’s spending time with Hank, a hunky contractor who is restoring a neighborhood brownstone to its former glory. Handsome and loyal, he’s almost too good to be true—but she just can’t shake the feeling he’s hiding something. Enter Billy, a sexy brainiac who shares her passion for crosswords. He would be perfect, too—if she weren’t old enough to be his aunt.
With crises looming on all fronts, Dana’s wits are about to be put to the ultimate test. Before she loses it all, she’ll have to figure out what she really wants—a puzzle that’s anything but black-and-white.

I won this book ARC via First Reads on Good Reads.

Perfect on Paper is a delightful light and breezy story about a fortyish female suffering from “reverse Goldilocks syndrome”. Her list of suitors contains three swoon-worthy men: one’s too old, one’s too young, and one’s just right (age wise anyway). But Dana Mayo is still confused, and rightfully so. What determining factor defines “Just right” anyway? Its fun to watch the crossword puzzle enthusiast and artist, Dana take the reins of her romantic future in her quest to find Mr. Right. Dana is a very quirky, funny, and loveable character. The eerie situations she found herself in with one her beaus had me doubled over in laughter. With another beau, I just wanted to shake her out of frustration. With the third beau, I found myself sighing a lot, because he was so almost perfect. Dana’s selections were likeable characters that it’s hard to figure out who she would choose. The supporting characters of this story also collectively contributed to this enjoyable read. I would recommend this to all fans of Chick-Lit and romance.
