I have not been able to find much information about this, but there was a note about the book in the Romance Wiki Romance Scholarship Bibliography about a chapter titled "Rosa: Fiction as Therapy":

This chapter of the book explores reading for "escape" through the experiences of Rosa, who "was especially expert in reading romance novels and proud of her expertise" (107) and whose reading allowed her to "dwell on her own troubles, but at a distance made safe by the intervening presence of the story with the happy ending" (115).
