A hilarious romantic comedy about a lonely man who just wants a girlfriend, and decides desperate measures must be taken
When Tom Stacey's neighbors go on holiday and leave the door to their flat open, he abruptly decides to move in. He needs a change. Nothing's been going right. He's lost his watch. He hears bees in his head.
Then there is his search for his long-ago first love, Sarah McCarthy to worry about.
But perhaps it is not the bees or the past that is the problem. Perhaps it is his ongoing loneliness.
Tom has had twenty-two dates via a dating agency and he's got nothing to show except a dent in his bank balance and several complaints about him having “eccentric behaviour.”
But to Tom, that's because the agency isn't asking the right question that will match him up with the perfect partner. And alone in his neighbor's apartment, he decides he must take his life in his hands. He must construct an answer to the question: What do you really want in a woman?

Daniel Seery’s short stories have appeared in a number of magazines and anthologies and he was a winner in the Irish Writers’ Centre Novel Fair Competition. He lives in Dublin with his wife and two daughters. A Model Partner is his first book.Review:
'Seery s novel is full of wit and warmth an intelligent, funny, often hilarious, and sometimes surreal journey with a character unlike any I ve met before; the brave and vulnerable Tom on his unique and unstoppable search for the solution to his loneliness.'"
At its heart, Daniel Seery s funny, touching debut is a book about loneliness. It s not easy to mix tragedy and comedy but Seery does a good job, and the result is an original and very promising novel."
