Who does an advice columnist ask for help? Thirty-six-ish, well, thirty-eight…no, actually, thirty-nine-year-old advice columnist Rose Costelloe thought she'd solved all her problems when she got married after a whirlwind two-month courtship. But seven months and an extremely public smash-up later (embarrassing, when you dole out relationship wisdom for a living), things are looking thorny for Rose. Her job's in jeopardy, her finances are in shambles and she's being plagued by a stalker who seems to know rather a lot about the mysterious circumstances of her birth. Sometimes rescue comes from an unexpected source… Her zany friends suggest she get a roommate, and at first Theo, a geeky accountant, seems like the perfect choice for resolutely single Rose. Soon, however, she's seeing stars—Theo has a secret passion for astronomy…and he might just be fond of his prickly redheaded landlady, as well. Will Rose be able to chart her own course?
