About Book

Patricia's marriage of eleven years is over. Despite her doubts about the arrival of Brian, a dog who has become a father-substitute for her ten year old daughter Rachel, Patricia is more than ready for a fulfilled life as a single parent. But then the matchmaking begins. Even her most trusted friends are determined to provide her with potential lovers, all of whom she skilfully manages to avoid - that is until Roland, who is deeply unsuitable, arrives on the scene.
