The Rise and Fall of A Yummy Mummy

UK Publisher: Time Warner Book Group

Six months after giving birth, Amy Crane is mourning the lively working woman she once was, along with her old jeans, sex, and a social life that doesn’t involve competitive new mother cliques. Motherhood is bringing her own childhood into strangely painful focus. And she suspects her boyfriend is cheating. Enter Alice, west London’s yummiest and most unconventional mummy, determined to transform Amy’s body, wardrobe, and love life. But changes start happening on a deeper level. And when Amy’s libido awakes from its long nap, things get rather complicated.

The Rise and Fall of a Yummy Mummy is a wonderfully well-written, funny and heartfelt novel about the trials of playing hip happy families and the conflicts at the heart of modern motherhood.
