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.

Synopsis

The Rise and Fall of a Yummy Mummy by Polly Williams

Amy has recently given birth to her first child, Evie, but, while utterly besotted with her daughter, she can't quite manage to get her own life back on track. She feels overweight, unattractive and incapable of holding a conversation beyond the lines of breast pumps and feeding times. She wants her figure, her sassiness, her LIFE back. And on top of that, she suspects her partner, Joe, is having an affair.

Then her friend Alice decides to give her a makeover. A few weeks later and Amy finds a far more yummy mummy looking back at her in the mirror, but as her confidence grows, so her life becomes increasingly more complicated …

Reviews

'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
