LoveReading View on Thanks for Nothing, Nick Maxwell

Rachel Covington is rather full of herself and rather selfish but you can’t help liking her or this novel. It’s funny and fresh and a brilliant book for a holiday read. This is the authors first novel and lets hope there will be more to come.

Comparison: Marian Keyes, Sophie Kinsella, Catherine Alliott.

Thanks for Nothing, Nick Maxwell Synopsis

In Rachel Covington's view, the world is divided into two kinds of people: those who have children and those who don't. Neither side can understand the other and each believe that they have the best deal. Rachel herself is sexy, single and smug. She's very happy with her fabulous, flirty life full of parties, clothes and hairdos. Then one day she meets Nick Maxwell and sets in motion a chain of events that change her life irrevocably. Nick makes Rachel feel dizzy, light-hearted and thrilled. But then he doesn't call. And Rachel finds she is pregnant. Suddenly she is catapulted headlong into her worst nightmare and is faced with a dreadful dilemma : should she keep the baby and change her life forever or keep things exactly the way they are?

Thanks for Nothing, Nick Maxwell is the touching story of Rachel's personal journey. But it's not all tears, cravings and morning sickness. A chance meeting in a supermarket leads Rachel to Hector, a tall, dark stranger who makes her laugh and is the exact opposite of Nick Maxwell.
