Perfect on Paper The (Mis)adventures of Waverly Bryson


Perfect on Paper is my first book read by the author Maria Murnane.

I bought her book in book sale (a heaven for bibliophiles) after the books’ log line captured my interest and later on tingled my emotions.

It is a book about a girl named Waverly in her late 20’s who almost had everything she dreamed. Her PR job in sports, two bestfriends, a bar where everyone knows her name and a supposedly happy marraige with the love of her life.

Besides other issues keeping her busy includes her father, a new rival at work and an ever nagging fear that her life is not turning out as she thought it would or should.

To stay sane, Waverly makes a habbit 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.

As Waverly stumbles back into the dating scene her personal and professional lives threaten to collide.

The book reminds us that everyone has had a bad date or twelve and that everyone needs a best friend to tell them, “HONEY, you are not alone”

I recommend this to every single women who still believes that they got a shot on love but is hindered by their own fear and low-self esteem.

This book is highly humurous. Definitely a novel you’ll enjoy reading!
