A diary novel of midlife ‘affairs’, growing teenagers and juggling full time work with home. It is full of insecurities, doubts and misunderstandings as well as the small and seemingly trivial matters of a working mother. Written with a light touch and a great deal of humour, it has obvious comparisons to Bridget Jones (not least the title) but there is nothing wrong with that. There is an element of “will they, won’t they” to it which does keep you guessing. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Synopsis

Diary of an Unsmug Married by Polly James

Meet Molly Bennett. Married to Max and mother to two warring teenagers, she's just 'celebrated' a significant birthday. Bridget Jones would call Molly a smug married . So why doesn't she feel it? Is it because everyone seems to be having a better time of it than her? Or is it that Max has started showing more interest in 'business trips' and less interest in their sex life? Molly begins to despair. And then an old school friend starts flirting with her through Facebook ...

'A properly good writer'

About the Author

Polly James

Polly James was born in Wales, but now lives in East Anglia, which she finds unnervingly flat, and chock-full of writers.

She works as an editor, but has had a variety of different jobs, ranging from teaching dance, and designing clothes, to being an advisor for the CAB and a caseworker for two different Members of Parliament. She has found something to laugh about in all of them.

Polly is married, with two children, and a large extended family, none of whom find her half as funny as she thinks she is.
