Rae Wallace would rather drown in a vat of pinot greezh and be eaten by her own beagle than make another trip down the aisle--even if it is her best friend's wedding. She's too busy molding the minds of first graders and polishing that ol' novel in the drawer to waste time on any man, unless it's Jason Segel.
But when her be-fris stage an intervention, Rae is forced to give in. After all, they've hatched a plan to help her find love the 21st century way: online. She's skeptical of this electronic chlamydia catcher, but she's out to prove she hasn't been too picky with men.
However, when a familiar fella's profile pops up--the dangerously hot substitute teacher from work (Nick)--Rae swipes herself right into a new problem... 

My Thoughts
The last thing on Rae Wallace's mind is men.  At least in the active sense of having to choose one.  Even as her plus one for her best friend's up coming wedding.
Follow this divorced, 30-something, beagle loving, school teacher by day, and aspiring author any other time. As she, with the help of her more than willing best friends / partners in app assisted dating hijinx, attempt to lead her if not to "true love".  At least to someone she can stand for more than ten minutes.

Further complications arise however, in the form of Nick "The Hot New Substitute" Greene.  A man who comes with "all the right stuff".  Including a maybe girlfriend.
A secret that has to be read to be drooled over.

What we have in Mr. Right Swipe, is a truer than one would like to admit look into dating in the app age.  An experience that has the drawback of reducing even the most grown-up of 30-somethng professionals into hashtagging, OMGing, bad dating, right and left swipers. 

Following Rae and her friends through the pitfalls and lessons of their lives and friendships makes this read a lot younger.  Which can be a bit off putting if one is not open to light and fluffy.

All in all, this is a very sweet and funny read.  One for those daring to search for love in the 21st century.
