Who says women can have it all? The Rise and Fall of a Yummy Mummy follows the life a woman who tries to do just that. When new mum Amy Crane tries to insert a bit of glam into her life post-baby, it all gets very complicated as she attempts to juggle yoga, botox and the baby. A hilarious read, and it made me feel far less guilty about slobbing around the house in my tracksuit bottoms.

If you like Polly Williams you might also like to read books by Allison Pearson, Cecelia Ahern and Kate Long.

Synopsis

The Rise and Fall of a Yummy Mummy by Polly Williams

One woman’s struggle to fit back into her old self.

Amy Crane is in crisis. Six months after the birth of her baby, Amy still looks pregnant and can’t remember the last time she had a wax, or an orgasm. Motherhood is stirring up disturbing questions about her own childhood. And she suspects her boyfriend is cheating. Enter Alice, yummy mummy superior, on a mission to transform Amy’s body, and love life. As Amy swaps breast pads for Botox and climbs out of a vortex of self-doubt, her libido awakens from its long nap and things get rather more complicated …

A wonderfully well-written, funny and sharp novel about the trials of playing hip happy families and the contradictions at the heart of modern motherhood.

Reviews

'Smart and funny, The Rise… explodes the yummy mummy myth’ Heat

'Written with the lightest of touches and serious intent. A funny, smart and honest account of modern motherhood' In Style

'Deliciously well-written tale... Sparkling and seductive' Good Housekeeping

'As baby-sick lit takes over from chick lit as publishing's latest craze, the genre may well have found its Bridget Jones in Amy, the 31-year-old hero of journalist Polly Williams' debut' Marie Claire
