UK Kirkus Review » Isabel Wolff's stories of 30-something women meeting the right man aren't on the face of it unusual, but they stand far above their numerous competitors for the charm and sympathy of their writing. The narrator of this volume is Rose, whose successful career as an agony aunt contrasts painfully with her personal misery. Separated from her husband Ed after only seven months of marriage and permanently insecure after her mother's abandonment of her as a baby, Rose buys a house in south London and settles down with only her loquacious mynah bird for company. However, soon her life is looking up. Her effervescent twin friends Bella and Bea are a great support, and her new neighbours Beverley and Trevor the dog prove vital allies. Then Rose advertises for a lodger, and along comes Theo - an astronomer who opens up a whole new world to her. But just as Rose is gaining in spirits and confidence things start going wrong again; soon her career's on the line and her personal affairs are in disarray - and most confusingly of all, Ed starts suggesting they get back together?. This is an entertaining diversion given depth and warmth by the idiosyncrasies of the characters and humour of the plot. Wolff has a sharp eye for the absurdities of life and a Jilly Cooper-like fondness for bad puns, and she gives her creations enough life of their own for the reader to feel real sympathy for their tangles and troubles. In a genre where work is often just the backdrop for romance it's refreshing to see characters whose lives and identities are closely bound with the careers they pursue, and Wolff always makes sure that her heroines gain self-understanding and maturity as well as the handsome hero. All in all, a perfect piece of froth. (Kirkus UK)
