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.

If you like Polly Williams you might also like to read books by Carole Matthews, Carmen Reid and Allison Pearson.

Synopsis

The Egg Race by Polly Williams

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