Summary

A missing sister. A broken heart. A whole lot of trouble....

Rilla is getting married. Except she isn't. She's running away - from her confused fiancé, Simon, her big mad family, and the memories nipping at her heels.

Her sister Rose would know what to do in such times of crisis.

But the trouble is, Rose is the crisis. She disappeared years ago, and Rilla's heart went missing, too.

Where is Rose? And who is Rilla without Rose?

If she's to rescue some happiness out of all this chaos, she needs to find out.

Perfect for fans of Marian Keyes, The Trouble with Rose is an unforgettable story about a messy family, a big secret at its heart and the unbreakable bond between sisters.

I just didn’t get it

I honestly did not ‘get’ this book. There were such great reviews and I was looking forward to listening to this on audible while pottering at home. But I just kept waiting for it to start, waiting for something to happen, waiting for a punchline but nothing came.
