Isabel Wolff was born in Warwickshire and read English at Cambridge. She is the author of seven other bestselling novels, which are published in 23 languages. She lives in London with her family.From Booklist:
Rose Costelloe is a 39-year-old "agony aunt" (an advice columnist) whose own life is in turmoil. She thought she'd found the perfect man in Ed Wright when their whirlwind courtship ended in marriage. But Ed felt threatened by her job, and their constant fighting--not to mention Ed's infidelity with their marriage counselor--drove them apart. Determined to get back on her feet, Rose purchases a house and seeks a roommate to help offset the costs. Enter Theo, a quiet, thoughtful young man who is ten years Rose's junior. Rose starts to feel something for Theo, but she is concerned her neighbor, Beverly, might have similar feelings for him. And then there's Ed, who has decided that he made a mistake and wants Rose back. Tackling a variety of subjects from a possible stalker to Rose's complicated feelings about being adopted, Wolff, author of Out of the Blue (2003), has penned another charming romantic comedy.
