What did I think?
Look, I’m a fan. I love Don Tillman, I love Rosie. I love hearing about their lives and the crazy, hilarious messes that Don gets himself, and other people, into. The thing is though, that Don’s a good guy. He’s just wired a little different. If he weren’t a nice person, then the novel wouldn’t work.
In this second instalment Don and Rosie are living, working and studying in New York. Rosie gets pregnant and Don and her prepare for the big life change in their own ways. If you’ve read the first book, then you probably know preparing for a baby will not be an easy ground for the two of them to understand each other. Some hilarity ensues but so does plenty of sweetness…
On more than one occasion I shook my head saying ‘oh, Don. Don, Don, Don…’ The playground “incident” is a good case in point. I won’t spoil it for you, though.
I would suggest reading the books in order. You don’t have to, but I feel with this series it would be more enjoyable. I gave the first book five stars and I’m giving this one four. It’s still a fabulous story and I will read the third book, The Rosie Result, as soon as I can.
