For Rosie, a pathologist who quit her job at the morgue to come to this local weekly in the spirit of adventure, is larger than life in every sense.
But the reason her breezy column has doubled the Chronicle's circulation is the same reason she's a tough employee: she's not afraid to speak her mind, and speak it loudly. Faced with letters from readers about everything from inadvertently eating a slug to the etiquette of finding your mother in bed with a younger man, Rosie's advice is always unorthodox, frequently hilarious, and prone to land her in hot water.
But Rosie never gets in as much trouble as she does when she volunteers to help Fiona Morris look for her brother Philip, who disappeared while birdwatching in the Hebrides. Fiona and Rosie set off for Scotland to look for Philip, along with two recruits: another of Rosie's readers, birdwatching expert Arthur Prufrock, and his gardener, reluctant psychic Shad Lucas.
