Debut author Robin Gold has written a funny yet touching story about one woman’s journey to self-discovery and love.

After working hard on the hit daytime show Domestic Bliss both as producer and host, Delilah White is more than ready for a vacation. Her plan is to get some R&R with her best friend, Sofia, at Sofia’s summer house in the Catskills. Unfortunately, there’s a monkey wrench in this plan, and that wrench is named Margo Hart. Margo is another producer on Domestic Bliss, and she’s the antithesis of Delilah. To say they’re not fond of each other is an understatement. What should have been a relaxing vacation is turning into an off-stage power struggle. The only silver lining of this particular dark cloud is that there just might be a romance waiting for Delilah around the corner.

The Perfectly True Tales of a Perfect Size 12 is an engaging story that showcases Robin Gold’s ability to turn a witty phrase. The characters are well-drawn and very likeable – or hate-able, in Margo’s case. The first-person present point of view is distracting, but with time I was able to adapt. It is also refreshing to see a “plus-sized” female who is quite happy with her shape take to task those who think she is not the “right” size.
