What is it about turning thirty that sends rational women into a tailspin?
Suddenly going from having all the time in the world, to cringing at the ticking of her biological clock, Poppy is drowning under the strain of trying to get pregnant.
With a dad in the throes of a mid-life crisis, a crazy mother-in-law and time racing towards Lilly's wedding, will she be able to cope with it all...and give Ryan the baby they so desperately want?
Finally able to inherit her dad's porn money, Jazz can't wait to be rich! She can buy a house in Chelsea, go out partying with her old mates and start living how she deserves.
But with Ollie, Jemima and Meryl each clawing at their own little piece of her happiness, will she have to leave behind those closest to her in exchange for it?
The real question is, can Poppy and Jazz rescue their own lives before everything gets ruined, or will their own stubbornness destroy the lives they've created
My honest thoughts on this book:
Firstly I think I should have read the first couple of books in this series ( The Debt and the Doormat) because then I would have enjoyed it even more as I would have been taken on a Poppy and Jazzy's journey from the very beginning. This way I have a tiny niggle that I have missed out on a few important facts.
Nevertheless, I still think this story is funny, easy and full of humour ( sometimes a bit over the top), it made me chuckle and gasp as I turn page after page.
I adore both Poppy and Jazz, their friendship and the girly escapades. Poppy is a sweet and lovely leading lady, who is trying to get pregnant and start a new chapter of her life with her adoring husband, Ryan. Poppy also has a somewhat comical relationship with her mother and father, especially her father seem to be causing a few raised eyebrows!
Jazz, Poppy's best friend and sister in law, is finally getting the inheritance she has been dreaming about but despite her reassurance that the heap of money won't change her Jazz is doing quite the opposite pushing her near and dear away! Luckily Poppy has her back and is ready to help her best friend in need!
Laura manages to balance the funny side with the more serious one in a seamless blend and take us reader on a journey that is enjoyable and engaging.
Happy Reading! xo
