On the outside Josie and Finn have a perfect life with adorable son George – but George is hyperactive and Josie is pregnant again and dreading another child she can’t cope with. An astute, lightly humorous, intelligent read for the 30-something woman with a strong message and plenty of interest in its sub-plot. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Josie and Finn seem to lead a charmed life, with successful careers, an enviable relationship and an adorable son. But parenthood is no easy ride when your adorable son is hyperactive…
When Josie unexpectedly finds herself pregnant again, her feelings are mixed. How can you love your child yet fear to have another who might be just like him? Finn thinks she’s over-reacting – so she turns to her best friend, Clarky. He’s always been there for her – even if Finn suspects ulterior motives.
As she and Clarky become ever closer, Josie's world is suddenly thrown into doubt. What if she and Finn aren't the perfect couple after all? Is there such a thing as a straightforward friendship between a man and a woman? But most importantly: is she prepared to risk everything to find out?
