    A Hilarious Read!

    Playgroups and Prosecco was fun, lighthearted and an absolute joy to read. Full of the prattle of a single mother of two, the tales of wine, Jaffa cakes and amusing anecdotes kept me entertained with each turn of the page. There were so many laugh-out-loud moments and I adored Jo Middleton's writing style. The pacing was spot on - slow in parts but interspersed with incidents, then back to some everyday occurrences. Even the mundane parts were hilarious. Highly recommended and definitely worth five stars! I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my own request, from Penguin Random House - Ebury Publishing via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

    A Really Honest, Fun Read!

    What an honest, down-to-earth read .. and SO FUNNY! Since splitting with husband Ian, Frankie is on her own with toddler Jess and teenager Flo. It's hard to please everyone at the same time (never mind ALL the time) and this is her diary of 2018; the highs, the lows, the daily wine and jaffa cake count . . . What a great read! There's no whitewashing here; Frankie isn't perfect but she is refreshingly honest and I suspect that deep down all mums can identify with 90% of her life. The sad, the funny and the downright cringeworthy moments are all here, and it is an introspective and intelligent read. I've loved every single thing about this one - her kids, her friends, her job, her search on Tinder and the interactions with the ex, as they work hard together to stay friends. And yes, that is possible! This is a very easy read; easy to lift and lay - but why would you want to put it aside? Pulled in from the very first, I have laughed and cried along with Frankie and the predicaments she has been in, and I've been royally entertained. Such a fun read, definitely well worth a full five stars and a hearty recommendation! For a debut novel, it is awesome and I'm really looking forward to hearing more from Jo Middleton.

    Going It Alone

    3.5 Stars Let's deal with elephant in the room first. This novel is clearly inspired by Helen Fielding's Bridget Jones's Diary, there is no getting away from it - the diary format, the little synopsis at the start of each entry detailing alcohol imbibed, jaffa cakes eaten etc.. The only real difference being that this heroine is divorced, has 2 children and definitely doesn't live in London. Replace big pants and a pole at the Fire Station with swimwear and a 3 Year Old in a changing room and voila you have Playgroups and Prosecco. There is the unfulfilling job, the dating struggles, honestly all the way through I kept seeing the parallels to Ms. Fielding's book (I've never seen the film because there's something about Renee Zellwegger that creeps me out). That said it is a mildly amusing book - not laugh out loud funny but enough humour to raise a wry smile. Most of which, for this reader, was centred around the hiding of treat foods from the fruit of your loins. Admittedly I didn't go so far as hiding Elizabeth Shaw mints in packaging in the bathroom cabinet but if I'd thought of it I definitely would have done it. It doesn't bode well when you can't remember the main character's name and I couldn't, I just had to whip the book out to remind myself she was called Frankie. Maybe this is because she narrates the whole story so her name doesn't crop up that often in the text. Maybe it is because it is now 3 days since I finished the book. Who knows? Let's just say I can't really remember any of the character names except for the awful Cassie from Busy Beavers Playgroup, not even the children - was the oldest Lily? Some fairly decent situational set pieces are to be found in the book. The horrors of the six week summer holiday. The soft play centre that is something from a nightmare. The incessant need for a 3 year old to have your attention on them at ALL times. Despite the premise of the book being about a single mother I have to say Frankie's family sound pretty much perfect; the relationship between teenager and toddler is close and loving and there is no real friction with the divorced father. Frankie also seems to have really good support from him and soon makes friends with other mums. None of the isolation and claustrophobia that seems to be common for a lot of women in this situation and yet Frankie still seems to feel put upon rather than counting her blessings. Moderately fun and, as it is written in diary form, with really short sections it is very easy to pick up and put down. You can read an entry or two whilst waiting for the kettle to boil. Nothing outstanding but it will raise a wry smile or two and is perfect reading for anyone who struggles to cram reading time in to their day. THIS IS AN HONEST REVIEW OF A FREE COPY OF THE BOOK RECEIVED FROM READERS FIRST.
