As Don tries to get to grips with the requirements of starting a family, his unusual research style soon gets him into trouble. To make matters more difficult, Don has invited his closest friend to stay with them, but Gene is not exactly a prime example of marital happiness, and as his life with Rosie continues to be unpredictable Don needs to remember that emotional support is just as important as his practical expertise . . .

Listen to a sample

All three of the Rosie novels made me laugh out loud. Ultimately the story is about getting inside the mind and heart of someone a lot of people see as odd, and discovering that he isn't really that different from anybody else

Bill Gates, 2020 Summer Books

Warm-hearted and perfectly pitched, with profound themes that are worn lightly, this very enjoyable read promises to put Don Tillman on teh comic literary map somewhere between Mr Pooter and Adrian Mole

Guardian

Funnym endearing, and pure wonderful escapism

Independent on The Rosie Project

A poignant, funny novel about how you don't find love, it finds you
