No question about it, there are two little purple lines. I’m pregnant.’
After eight years together, Lil Bailey thought she’d already found ‘the one’—that is, until he dumped her for a blonde twenty-something colleague. So she does what any self-respecting singleton would do: swipes right, puts on her best bra and finds herself on a first date with a handsome mountaineer called Max. What’s the worst that can happen?
Well it’s pretty bad actually. First Max ghosts her and then, after weeing on a stick (but mostly her hands), a few weeks later Lil discovers she’s pregnant. She’s single, thirty-one and living in a thimble-sized flat in London, it’s hardly the happily-ever-after she was looking for.
Lil’s ready to do the baby-thing on her own—it can’t be that hard, right? But she should probably tell Max, if she can track him down. Surely he’s not that Max, the highly eligible, headline-grabbing son of Lord and Lady Rushbrooke, currently trekking up a mountain in South Asia? Oh, maybe he wasn’t ignoring Lil after all…
This book is everything that I needed in my life right now. It is funny, light hearted and everything a romance should be. I laughed, laughed and laughed some more. Thank you @harpercollinsaustralia for sending me this escape from the world as we know it right now. I couldn’t put it down. Lil is a character who is a down to earth and always says what she thinks and feels. She is hilarious without realising it. After a fantastic date with Max, a man she has only met once, she realises she is pregnant. Considering her age she realises her best option is to deliver this baby and raise her. The scan confirms it for her and she falls in love with her baby at once. Lil has friends and family around her who are willing to support her in every way they can. Jess, her best friend is there for her in every moment she can be, including the point when she tests positive for pregnancy. Max and Lil’s evolving relationship is perfect. It is authentic in these circumstances. Sophia Money-Coutts does not leave a single detail untold…sometines there are too mamy details… and yet this makes it even more hilarious. I look forward to reading more from this author. What a treat. If you want to read something funny that you won’t want to put down, I highly recommend What Happens Now?
