    Absolutely Hilarious!

    I've read books which have made me laugh before - but this time I couldn't stop! Meg and Danny are happily married with three daughters, one a baby. So, yes, their sex life has taken a hit - that's normal, right? So Meg isn't overly worried, until she opens the box delivered to their addressed to her husband and delivered to their home  . . . I have giggled hysterically at this book; it's so very, very funny! Kristen Bailey has a fabulous style of writing which just pulls you in and entertains you til the very end. Anyone in a long term relationship - and especially with kids - will nod along as this story has more than a ring of truth in it for the normal family. My long suffering other-half is used to me giggling maniacally when I'm reading, but this took things to a whole new level. I shall certainly be very suspicious of anyone with a sprained ankle from now on! If you really need a right good laugh, then this is the book for you. The laughs are all built into a very realistic story line, and the varying characters who pop up have a feeling of familiarity about them; they pop up everywhere!  Absolutely hilarious, and not a book I will forget easily. I suspect I may well be giving it as gifts this year - yes, it's THAT funny! Without a doubt, worth a full house of stars.

    Funny but not laugh out loud funny

    When I selected this book I was looking for a laugh out loud kind of book. While there were moments in this story that were funny it was not the laugh out loud kind of laughter. I found this book at times to be funny because of been there before having had 3 children myself. This story is about a couple who have 3 children and the reality that your sex life can at times take a back seat to taking care of the family. Meg is doing her best to balance family and a job. She believes her and Danny’s marriage is on track and going well. But when a package is delivered and a sex toy is found inside Meg finds herself wondering, “What happened to my sex life?” Meg goes back to the beginning of their relationship to wonder if it could have all been different if they had not moved away from the city back to Danny’s home town so he could take his place at the family Paper Company. As Meg tries to understand what is going on with Danny, she is surprised by what she finds. Will the reporter in her uncover what is really going on with Danny? Is there marriage in trouble? How will Meg show her face around town if Danny is having an affair? Or is there a secret that Meg learns that could affect the family’s reputation? This is an adult book and contains adult content. Overall I did enjoy the book. I would like to thank Netgalley for the complimentary copy. The thoughts and opinions are my own.

    Warm, witty and so real!

    📦A surprise delivery changes the context of their everyday lives: warm and witty😊 4.5🌟stars I loved the down-home, realistic picture of family life in this Kristen Bailey work. Meg, the Londoner come to the North heroine, is a good mom to her three girls but worries that the years of married domesticity have dulled the shine on her relationship with Northerner Dan. A surprise postal delivery suddenly provokes a re-examination of the quality and direction of her marriage. Bailey does a great job covering the bases of the range of emotions and fears Meg cycles through with Dan and his close family. Meg, by moving north, has had to abandon a lifestyle she enjoyed in the trade-off with a growing, well-loved family and her husband's needs. Dan's career dilemma as he stoically stands up and takes the burden of running his family's business when he really hankers after a totally different vocation is portrayed very adroitly. She even makes the humdrum routine of walking the children to school or attending a school holiday gathering both comical and fraught with jealousy and back-biting gossip. Some standout characters besides Meg and Dan: five year old daughter Eve and Dan's carefree, globetrotting brother Stu. Eve is VERY vocal and demanding from the first chapter when she unequivocally rejects her breakfast choices; Stu brings excitement and added fun to their existence when he returns from his extended travels and reconnects to a small community where he's had a fling with most of their womenfolk.😉 For a non-British reader there is a lot of jargon that may not compute, but it's sort of fun to guess at the meaning in the context of this innuendo-charged and frequently explicit human comedy. Thanks to publisher Bookouture and NetGalley for providing a complimentary advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.
