When journalist Nina meets Jonathan through the personals, she doesn't expect it to lead to an unplanned pregnancy, gossipy new-mommy groups and a dull-as-dishwater partner. After all, she never really pictured herself settling down so quickly, but once she's on that path, there is no stepping off. The glamour that once was is replaced with diapers, homemade baby food and ...more

Jules (Never enough time to read)
It wasn't my favourite Fiona Gibson book to date, but I did enjoy it and it was an easy read. However, it didn't really have much of an ending, everything was left very open ended and not much between the main characters was resolved. In my opinion, it just didn't suit the style of book I like my chick lit with a clear HEA.

There was no real resolution to this book. Certainly not one that was satisfying or made sense. Instead it introduced multiple new characters at what I'd assume is the climax, which was fairly early. Then they just dropped them, for the most part. And she refused help from people because she wanted to be independent or some such nonsense. The premise was okay, but it wasn't a satisfying read, and the characters really fell flat. I believe it was a first novel, so I might be willing to give the a ...more

Girl gets knocked up by recent boyfriend who she hasn’t dated for very long and she has the baby. They live together, but the Girl just seems kind of empty. She and the Dude are totally opposite. Girl gets baby into modelling accidentally and doesn’t tell the Dude. Dude finds out by accident as well and they separate, the Girl going to her parents “summer home” in France where she hooks up with another Dude down there. She gets pregnant again and comes back to the UK to have the baby. She never ...more

This book is somewhere between fluff and something else. Not sure what. The cover makes it look like it's another Shopaholic type book, but it's not really. It's just a simple, easy to read story about a period in the main character's life. It's written almost from a 3rd person perspective, but it's narrated by the main character. The way it's written, sort of removed from events, compliments the main character in how she is living her life - almost as an outsider. Easy to read is how I would be ...more

This book started off super strong and had me laughing in the first few pages. Really liked that. But as the story progressed, it lost me a little and I didn't like what happened to the main character in the last part of the book.

I'd read more from this author because she's got wit (and I loved her style) but I hope the plots get stronger.

very weak female character. The book did not have any message and did not leave anything at all afterwards. Empty and useless. Did not impress in terms of its writing qualities either. Would not recommend.

Normally, I love British journalists-turned-chick-lit authors, but I've been disappointed with this one...Struggling to finish it now. Premise is good and I even like her writing style, but I think it is much more suited to smaller works. I'm sure her articles are entertaining...

Disappointing, in a word. I had already read Something Good, and enjoyed it, so picked this to take on holiday. Unfortunately it didn't measure up.

Not at all what it claimed to be on the back of the book. I didn't like the heroine, didn't like the choices she made, and felt the ending didn't resolve anything and was too rushed.

This book was not that good. I had to force myself to finish it! The characters were never developed well at all.

I'm not really sure what I made of this book. At first I thought I was really going to love it. I did like her writing style- I just felt the end was a bit disappointing.
