Mr. Perfect on Paper by Jean Meltzer

 Release Date - August 9, 2022


It's during a live broadcast that Dara Rabinowitz's Bubbe Miriam blurts to the world that the organized founder of the Jewish dating app, J-Mate, even has a list of her "Perfect Jewish Husband." For Chris Steadfast, it could be exactly what he needs to save his job. He's just learned that the news channel is about to pull his show, and after uprooting his daughter to NYC following her mother's tragic death, he cannot go through another move.

It's for that reason that Chris and his producer take all of the social media buzz to heart and ask Dara to let them find the guy that checks ever item on her wish list. They'll broadcast each date on the way to finding Mr. Perfect. A man who...

  • Is a doctor or lawyer
  • Not previously married and doesn't have kids
  • And is Jewish and, most importantly, one who who follows Jewish laws, especially the Kosher diet

It's proving harder than Chris first imagined. Each date keeps falling victim to unexpected, and completely unplanned situations (think a honey bee stuck in Dara's hair). The bigger issue, Chris is falling for Dara, but he doesn't check any of her boxes, so he knows it's a moot point.

I loved Jean Meltzer's The Matzah Ball. Mr. Perfect on Paper is just as warm and inviting. It's packed with humorous touches and likable characters, even if Dara was a little blind to true love at times. Still, I couldn't put it down and was delighted as the romance played out in delightfully unexpected ways. It's been cooler and rainy here in Vermont, and this was the perfect romance to curl up with over a hot cup of tea.
