Why Mummy Drinks meets Bridget Jones
The first in the bestselling comedy series
Juliette is a new mother, but life isn’t going the way she’d hoped. She doesn’t live in a cottage with roses around the door. She doesn’t own a rolling pin. And Daisy’s out-of-work actor father still hasn’t proposed.
While Juliette sobs her way through sleepless nights and nappy changes, Nick drinks Guinness and plays computer games. Meanwhile, his helicopter mother is always on hand to find fault – with Juliette. At least when Nick pops the question, things will look up…won’t they?
With a supporting cast including Juliette’s over-honest mother, potty-mouthed grandmother, militant hippy best friend and handsome-but-scarred hotel magnate Alex Dalton, the first in Suzy K Quinn’s hilarious, bestselling Bad Mother series is a sassy, uplifting, addictive treat.
‘A witty, warm, real, observational and poignant page-turner. I loved it!’
‘Brilliantly funny and so real – the perfect pick-me-up page-turner’
‘Frank, disarming and hilarious, it’s the best women’s fiction I have read since the last Marian Keyes and it made me spit more coffee out than Bridget Jones’ Diary ever did. I can’t wait to read books 2 and 3’
‘This book made me laugh so much it became dangerous for a mother-of-four to continue’
