The Rosie Effect is the charming and hilarious sequel to the biggest selling debut novel of 2014, The Rosie Project.

'A wholly absorbing, vivid read that leaves you pining to be reunited with its characters every time you put it down - if you're able to' Independent

The Rosie Project introduced us to one of the most unforgettable and loveable characters in contemporary fiction, Don Tillman.  The story of this socially challenged genetics professor and his unique quest to find a wife not only became an unlikely publishing phenomenon, it pushed the unconventional romantic lead back firmly centre stage.  Now our Gregory Peck look-a-like, Don Tillman is back! Now our Gregory Peck look-a-like, Don Tillman is back!

But then Rosie drops the mother of all bombshells.
