Publisher's Summary

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 20-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, 31 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....

Highly recommend!

Absolutely loved this book - especially because the author is also the narrator and I feel that the characters' roles are portrayed in the intended manner. An absolute must read, if you're into the rom-com type novel of today. Highly recommend.

Cute

Super cute, gave me that feeling of sitting at a cafe talking with friends. Very sweet and light hearted. Easy to digest kind of listen, great for car trips back and forth to work.

Surprisingly good

Am generally not a fan of author read novels as they are obviously not professional out loud readers.

This book is an exception. The author does a terrific job and I absolutely loved this book. Listened to it in one day.

Great chicklit. Nothing too heavy, but definitely enjoying and relaxing.

A good beach read

I enjoyed this book but I listened at a slower speed as the author was reading too fast for a languid listen.

Ehhhhh

It was ok. Nothing that held me captivated or surprised. I would catch myself tuning it out as I drove. Yeah, it was OK.

Great read even for a non Brit

I really enjoyed the story and the characters. I loved Lil and her friends. I also like the narration by the author. Seemed real world. Already looking for another book by this author.

I do wish there was an epilogue. I love when you get a glimpse of how things turn out later.

Perfect for a road trip

Silly but perfect for a road trip. As a traveler, her dialogue regarding the guy annoys me. if you're not, it's a perfect thing to listen to while on the road through Los Angeles traffic on the way to wine tasting and camping alone with 2 pups 10 days before planning on becoming a single mom by choice.

Hilarious, heartwarming and fun!

I just loved this story and the performance was great!! I like a fast pace talker that can deliver humor with timing and charm. I could picture the story as a movie in my head. Can’t wait to find more books by this author!

Cute and Fun!

I really enjoyed the story. I’m on the road a lot and I found myself excited to have to drive my car so that I can continue listening to the story. I was also sad when the story came to an end. Not because the author didn’t do a good job with the ending but the very fact that I wouldn’t be able to continue to experience the main character’s life.

Also, I really enjoyed the way that the author narrated the story!

Easy listening

Not the type of Audible id usually go for.
Wasn’t thrilling, just easy to listen to, like a friend telling a tale about their day.

Funny and Warm

I thought that it was quite cool that the author read the book because you get to listen to it how it was meant to be heard. Really funny in places and completely heart warming. Easy going and lovely. book to make you feel all mushy inside.

Great page turner

Perfect holiday read and I was late for dinner wanting to hear the end.

I felt like I was in the same room as Lil as Sophia told her story.

Such aJoy

Loved, loved, loved this book. Relatable characters and real laugh out loud moments. This Author is truly gifted. I couldn’t put this down. I admit I shed a few tears in places but in a good way. It’s a definite must read. Having the Author read this brought so much more to the storyline. Thank you.

NARRATION DODGY

Story was ok, but narration irritating, had to slow the speed down to .75, but a different narrator could have made it more enjoyable.
