Dear Dotty: A novel / Jaclyn Westlake.

Westlake, Jaclyn. (Author).


What's a twenty-something gal to do when her parents announce a divorce after thirty years of marriage, she finds out her best friend has cozied up to her archnemesis, and she accidentally sleeps with the Wrong Guy? Turn to her great-aunt for advice, of course. Rosie Benson has always struggled to fit in with her over-accomplished family, type-A roommate/best friend, and workaholic boss. But she's nearly losing herself as she strives to become everyone else's idea of perfect. When Rosie is abruptly fired from her job at a tech start-up where her boss was way too enthusiastic about synergy and company swag, the illusion that she has life figured out is shattered. Knowing she needs a push, her great-aunt Dotty--a globe-trotting, martini-swilling occasional nudist, and the only person Rosie has ever truly felt herself around--challenges her to pursue a long-buried dream, others' expectations be damned. But then Dotty dies. And Rosie spirals. As new details of Dotty's past emerge through revelatory emails from her many friends, Rosie realizes that maybe her aunt's life wasn't as charmed as she thought. With her career, friendships, and family unraveling, Rosie must drown out the noise of the world telling her what she should pursue--boyfriend, babies, boss-babe role at a corporate job--and finally focus on what she actually wants.
