Verrick Grant accidentally sets off the alarm in her brand new apartment, upsetting her new neighbor, Lionel Parford. Lionel appears at her door impeccably groomed, confident, and obviously irritated, prompting Verrick to dub her neighbor, Mr. Perfect. Verrick watches enviously as Lionel s perfection reaches dizzying heights. The man succeeds at everything, is always neat and tidy, has the extended family that Verrick can only dream of, and yet manages to only catch her when she s in some state of disarray or alarm. She detests him, but as he lives next door, she finds it impossible to avoid him. As time passes, Verrick finally finds the chinks in his armor and begins to warm up to him. And as he sees more and more of Verrick, Lionel begins to realize that she is much more that a dizzy neighbor; in fact, she just might be the woman he s been waiting for.

Booklist Review

Verrick Grant is excited as she settles into her new condo in a suburb of Vancouver because she's never had a real home. Her glamorous mother sent her to boarding schools, never taking the time to know her. She doesn't understand why Verrick is a dentist instead of the wife of a wealthy man living a jet-set life. Verrick's first meeting with her new neighbor, Lionel Parford, is unsettling as she accidentally sets off her smoke detector. He looks absolutely perfect, while Verrick is a total mess, and so it is every time she sees him. His immaculate appearance and impeccable manners inspire her to call him Mr. Perfect. But he is intrigued by his neighbor and speculates about her job and social life. McEachern's gentle and sweet story is perfect for readers who like a chaste romance with a delightful ending. --Patty Engelmann Copyright 2004 Booklist
