This is pure escapism, so much fun; if you are looking for a Mother’s Day gift, take this home. We have 25-year old JJ, the ambitious, successful daughter and Beth, her very young (under 40) and even more successful mum. Beth had JJ when she was 16 and to make ends meet wrote about her daily happenings for various magazines. This led to TV and stardom. Now she’s got a surprise to tell JJ, a girl constantly rebelling against her mother’s good advice. In the course of this book JJ grows up. By the end of page one I was smiling, by the end of the chapter laughing, by the end of the book glowing with warmth. The story becomes predictable but en route to the (compulsory for chic-lit) happy ending it is very, very funny.

Synopsis

Mother of the Year by Karen Ross

Most daughters believe their mums deserve an award. JJ Jackson's mother has a whole shelf full...Beth Jackson is a national treasure. Famous since the age of 15, she's has gone from hitting the headlines as a teenage mum to being celebrated for her television shows, her parenting column and winning the Mother of the Year Award three times in a row.

And now, with her job under threat and her love-life under pressure, JJ needs her mum more than ever...A story of love, family and transformation, Mother of the Year is the perfect gift for Mother's Day.
