"Meet Don Tillman, a brilliant yet socially challenged professor of genetics, who's decided it's time he found a wife. And so, in the orderly, evidence-based manner with which Don approaches all things, he designs the Wife Project to find his perfect partner: a sixteen-page, scientifically valid survey to filter out the drinkers, the smokers, the late arrivers. Rosie Jarman is all these things. She also is strangely beguiling, fiery, and intelligent. And while Don quickly disqualifies her as a candidate for the Wife Project, as a DNA expert Don is particularly suited to help Rosie on her own quest: identifying her biological father. When an unlikely relationship develops as they collaborate on the Father Project, Don is forced to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie-- and the realization that, despite your best scientific efforts, you don't find love, it finds you" -- from publisher's web site.
Don Tillman, professor of genetics, has never been on a second date. He is a man who can count all his friends on the fingers of one hand, whose lifelong difficulty with social rituals has convinced him that he is simply not wired for romance. So when an acquaintance informs him that he would make a 'wonderful' husband, his first reaction is shock.

Quick, fun, and charming read that will make you feel good and laugh out loud. Opposites attract when boy (Associate Professor of Genetics Don) meets girl (quirky Rosie) and entertainment and love ensue.

If you're looking for an implausible but entertaining, light, romantic read, this may be the one. It did hold my attention and I actually looked forward to getting back into traffic for my commute. If we had a "real" beach here in Colorado, this would be a good beach read.

Undoubtedly cute and quirky.

Don Tillman is a wonderful and quirky Australian character. Combine him with the narrator's Australian accent and you're in for a treat.
