Publisher's Summary

Rosie and Alex are destined for each other, and everyone seems to know it but them. Childhood friends, then high school buddies, then long-distance confidantes, they barrel forward with their lives on sometimes parallel, occasionally intersecting, and often divergent paths. Yet the paths are always there, well-trod and deep. Just when it seems that Alex and Rosie might be together forever, everything goes wrong: Alex gets the news that his family is leaving Dublin and moving to Boston. Devastated, the two make plans to apply to colleges in the U.S. She gets into Boston University, Alex gets into Harvard, and everything is falling into place. But on the eve of her departure, Rosie receives news that changes their lives forever. Her dreams for college, Alex, and a glamorous career are dashed as Rosie stays in Dublin while Alex pursues a medical career and a new love in Boston.
But destiny is a funny thing, and in this novel, structured as a series of clever e-mails, letters, notes, and a trail of missed opportunities, Alex and Rosie find out that fate isn't done with them yet. Delightfully unexpected and romantic, Love, Rosie is a novel of enormous heart that will keep listeners laughing and guessing until the very last word.

Really really wonderful! This is a must listen.

I don't usually write reviews, but i just couldn't believe that there were bad reviews about this book. It is definitely one of the BEST audiobooks I have ever listened to, and I actually use it to convert non - audiobook people with great success! I have recommended it to at least 10 different women and they all had one comment - "I couldn't stop laughing!!" Rosie is a wonderful character who is easy to love and root for, and the narrator did a great job with the accents and the emotion behind the words.
If you have a sense of humor, are a romantic, and like a girl with a little spunk.. Give this one a try - you won't regret it!
