Description:
Motherhood, it seems, has more pitfalls than Lucy might have expected. Caught between perfectionist Yummy Mummy No 1 and hypercompetitive Alpha Mum, Lucy is in danger of losing the parenting plot. And worst of all, she's alarmingly distracted by Sexy Domesticated Dad. It's only a matter of time before the dirty laundry blows up in her face.

What the papers say:
"This slice of angst and affluenza is several cuts above the rest ... witty, observant and supremely intelligent" The Times "There is something of Bridget Jones's hopeless-but-adorable quality about Lucy ... Neill's hilarious depiction of the manifold daily perils of stay-at-home motherhood is so convincing that it soon looks like the most challenging job in the world - and Lucy is all the more sympathetic simply for staying afloat" Daily Telegraph "If you're struggling to find your own inner yummy mummy, this is for you. After a few pages you'll want to make heroine Lucy Sweeney your best mate as her trials and tribulations wash away your own troubles" Woman "Above the usual class of post-baby fiction...an intelligent and funny look at modern parenting" Eve "This will have you laughing out loud with empathy" Star Magazine
