The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

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 is also 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
