After rebounding from a broken engagement and relinquishing her job in sports PR, the irrepressible Waverly Bryson has a new man, a new career, and a new lease on life. Her part-time gig as an advice columnist has proven to be as entertaining as it is affirming, and her fledgling greeting card line, Honey Notes, is off to a promising start. After a series of disastrous romantic rebounds, she has settled into a long-distance relationship with handsome Jake McIntyre. Things are certainly looking up…at least, until lingering emotional baggage threatens her love life and her best friends stun her with a pair of shocking announcements. Suddenly, Waverly is faced with being left behind by everyone she loves. And in true Waverly fashion, things must get comically worse before they can get better. It takes forming an unexpected new friendship with an elderly neighbor and meddling in the love lives of two of her coworkers to make “the American Bridget Jones” realize that although life — before and after thirty — never fails to be messy and unpredictable, friendship and love make it all worthwhile.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle | 2/20/2014

    " I liked the first one better but I still enjoyed the easy chick lit read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angi | 2/16/2014

    " So cute! Great sequel to Perfect on Paper- not quite as funny. I loved being back into their world and I love Waverly. It's nice to have a train wreck character who isn't a complete idiot. She has some moments but it feels more realistic than some other books. Still love all the characters and it's been fun watching Waverly start to grow up. Also it makes me want to move to 'San Fran'--haa! "

    " Not as good as the first book but a fun read none the less. Good read for over the break. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn | 1/31/2014

    " Very easy read and sounds like a romantic comedy on page. Cute is best way to describe it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shana | 12/6/2013

    " Just couldn't relate to the main character. Seemed too predictable, successful girl meets rich handsome nearly perfect man, all smells of roses. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela | 12/1/2013

    " I love this book! I want Waverly as my best friend. It's hilarious, touching, and very "real." Not the typical chick lit. I think many readers can relate to Waverly and the trickiness of navigating new romance, a new career path, family and friendship. I hope there is a sequel to this sequel! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elisa | 11/20/2013

    " Loved this read. I found it to be just as good and/or even better than Perfect on Paper. I can not wait until July for Honey on Your Mind to be released. "

    " Waverly got me through my head cold! I love her! In all seriousness--she is a totally funny character--well-written to be so funny and vulnerable--the one point in the book where she hides behind a tree to see Jake--it just breaks my heart! Highly recommend! "
