Waiting for Mr. Right is the first of three books in the Mr. Right Novel Series.

Julia Duncan arrives at Tyler University with high hopes of a good education, but more importantly, meeting that special someone. Like many girls do, she imagines a handsome prince who will sweep her off her feet as they ride into the sunset and live happily ever after. Sounds simple, right? Eventually, Julia does find a boyfriend who seems to be Mr. Right, but time reveals that he is just the opposite, and her romantic dream quickly becomes a terrifying nightmare. What started as a little lie grows to the point of crisis, and with each passing moment, she moves further and further away from the life that she so desperately desires. Will she survive her first year of college? As Julia's story begins, you will meet her new friends on campus and see how they deal with issues like unwanted pregnancies, abusive boyfriends, and the power of being a true friend. You will see how one small nugget of truth saves Julia's life and puts her back on track to experience God's very best for her life.
