The Egg Race

Family Drama Relationship Stories

LoveReading View on The Egg Race

Wrong man, right time?  I think every woman can relate to that.  Should Stevie settle for dependable Jez or jet off to New York to chase her dreams? A great read, and personally, I enjoyed The Egg Race  even more than The Rise and Fall of a Yummy Mummy (it may have something to do with the lovely character Sam though!).  Fun, but touches on serious issues.  Highly recommended.

The Egg Race Synopsis

Stevie Jonson is thirty-four. She's broody. And she's set to marry not-quite the-man-of-her-dreams in two weeks’ time.

Just as the reality of her marriage sinks in, Stevie's path collides with that of Katy Norris, a thirty-six-year-old narcissist with an inside knowledge of fertility indicator home kits and a desire to get her boyfriend to settle, at any cost. As Stevie lurches further into a life that never should have happened, she meets a man who reminds her that she's more than just the sum of her ovaries . .

Set in London, Thailand and New York, this hilarious and heartfelt novel will speak to any woman who has ever met the wrong man at the right time.
