  • Motherhood with honesty and laughter

    I received a free electronic copy of this ARC from Netgalley, Emma Murray, and Boldwood Books. Thank you all for sharing your hard work with me. I have read this novel of my own volition, and this review reflects my honest opinion of this work. Emma Murray writes a fast-paced first-person accounting of life in the fast lane in London, learning to set priorities and determine what is honest and real in a modern life story. Saoirse and daughter Anna find their way through London life and Irish family in this tightly told tale. Husband and Father David is also learning to set aside some of his self-protective habits that hold his family at a distance. Time Out was a good read with lots of laughs and some very interesting folks.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Wonderful Motherhood story

    I loved this book. It is the most realistic book on being a mother I have ever read. Every woman that has had a child will appreciate and understand some of the things that these mothers went through. At times I laughed out loud picturing a child doing these atrocious things. Other times I wanted to step inside the book and hug Emma and Bea. The characters are wonderful and easy to love. This book is so relevant to now, with everyone posting amazing pictures of their children, dressed up and clean, smiling,etc. Every mother knows the struggle to get a child dressed and smiling for a picture yet we are constantly bombarded with these pictures on social media. It makes all of us feel like we are a failure and that there is something wrong with us or our children. The author took a fictional, sometimes funny book and made it seem like nonfiction. The storyline was strong and flowed wonderfully. A little twist added to the book and made me love it even more. A great book to read when you have escaped to the tub for a half hour or when travelling. Thank you to NetGalley and Old Time Books for the opportunity to read this wonderful book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Such a fun Summer Read!

    As a mom of two toddler girls, as soon as I saw the book’s description I wanted more! I loved how there was so much truth in her description of modern day parenting, especially about the mom Facebook group- so true!!! I wish it showed more from the book she was trying to write, I loved her take on everything but besides that it was a really fun read!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Mummy diary

    An amusing story of a first time mother coping with a demanding toddler and a fastidious husband. She's trying to be a writer against a backcloth of other mothers whose children appear to be perfect and properly fed on organic food. She believes her husband is having an affair. A friend offers her a break in Ireland where she makes new friends and is attracted to an attractive film star lookalike.In the meantime, she is drafting an outline pitch to her agent about motherhood, warts and all. When she returns home to London in an emergency believing her husband has been injured in a terrorist attack she discovers with whom her husband has been spending his time. Another revelation appears in the form of the man she was attracted in Ireland. Her life becomes more complicated.

    Thanks for your feedback!
