    Having a hard time finding fellow romance and chick lit lovers? Feel like you have to keep your reading tastes a secret? Come join a book discussion series where we focus on the books we are all reading.

A socially awkward genetics professor creates a lengthy questionnaire with his requirements for the perfect wife, but instead finds Rosie, a fiercely independent barmaid seeking her biological father, who meets none of his criteria.

    Copies of the book are available at the Reader Services desk on the third floor.
