Shae-Lynn Penrose drives a cab in a town where no one needs a cab—but plenty of people need rides. A former police officer with a closet full of miniskirts, a recklessly sharp tongue, and a tendency to deal with men by either beating them up or taking them to bed, she has spent years carving out a life for herself and her son in Jolly Mount, Pennsylvania, the tiny coal-mining town where she grew up.

Don is a brilliant geneticist, but he has always been rather socially maladroit. He starts The Wife Project and commences the search for the perfect spouse. Then Rosie blows into Don's life like a wild wind. Rosie is on a quest of her own -- The Father Project -- the search for her biological father. Rosie is the antithesis of Don's image of the perfect wife of his scientific calculations, but somehow he finds himself putting The Wife Project on the back burner to aid Rosie.
