Giveaway: The Rosie Effect

Summary: With The Rosie Project, “Graeme Simsion achieved the impossible and created an entirely new kind of romantic hero,” Jojo Moyes, author of Me Before You said. Now Don Tillman returns in the hilarious and charming sequel to the international sensation. Get ready to fall in love all over again.

Don sets about learning the protocols of becoming a father, but his unusual research style gets him into trouble with the law. Fortunately his best friend Gene is on hand to offer advice: he’s left Claudia and moved in with Don and Rosie.

Picking up where The Rosie Project left off, The Rosie Effect is a fun, hilarious, and poignant read. “Don Tillman helps us believe in possibility, makes us proud to be human beings, and the bonus is this: he keeps us laughing like hell” (Matthew Quick, author of The Silver Linings Playbook). -- Simon & Schuster

Earlier this year, I reviewed THE ROSIE EFFECT by Graeme Simsion. This novel is the followup to the huge hit THE ROSIE PROJECT (which had around two million readers), and fans of Don Tillman will definitely want to see what happens after he "wins" the girl. Don discovers that life with Rosie is far from simple when they find themselves expecting a baby, and Don does his best to fully research what it takes to be a father. Of course, Don stumbles along the way; and his research methods are a bit unorthodox... and hilarious for readers!

I am a huge fan of Don Tillman and can't recommend these funny but heartwarming books. You can
visit for videos, excerpts, and reading group guides from both THE ROSIE PROJECT and THE ROSIE EFFECT. My book club read THE ROSIE PROJECT last year and had a fun time discussing not only the book but also what we would look for in a partner.

I am giving away a copy of the newly released paperback edition of THE ROSIE EFFECT courtesy the publisher. To enter, just fill out the form below before August 4th at 11:59 p.m. EST. I will randomly select and notify the winner the following day. This contest is open to those of you with U.S. addresses only. Good luck!

Does this one work as a 'stand-alone' or is it necessary to read the first book for beginning this one?

It could work but I think you'd better appreciate Don if you read the first one!

I read recently that Jennifer Lawrence is signed on to play Rosie in the movie. Very exciting!
