Trying to be the perfect first time mum and finding that things don’t always run to plan however organised you might plan to be. Something here any mother can relate to and maybe something everyone wanting to become a mum should read to know that no-one is perfect! A funny, witty and enjoyable read.

Synopsis

Babymoon by Melanie La'Brooy

The countdown to mummydom has started . . .

Isabelle and Jack are expecting their first child. And Isabelle is the very model of a calm Earth Mother-to-be.

Or she would be if she wasn’t consumed by anxiety about finding her pelvic floor, watching birthing videos or being accepted into the yummy mummy parade with a very practical mobility system. Even worse, as Isabelle’s tummy grows, so does the distance between her and her adored Dr Jack who, it seems, has quite different priorities.

But with the support of a host of new mothers and friends all full of the worst possible advice, just maybe Isabelle can make it through pregnancy and childbirth with her dignity, her relationship and some more private bits intact. Then again, maybe not.

About the Author

Melanie La'Brooy is the author of the bestselling novels Love Struck, The Wish List and Serendipity. Although she wrote The Babymoon shortly after the birth of her first child, she would like to make it clear that this book is fiction, as the though of making love while dressed in a Carlton football jumper makes her feel ill.

When Melanie isn't writing, walking her dog, doing the laundry, trying to find the 'off' switch on the singing Winnie-the-Pooh, cleaning the high chair or being used as a teething ring by her beloved baby, she likes to pass out unconscious against the nearest available surface.

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Sue Burton

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

I love the honest opinions, recommendations for every genre and every reader, wish lists and Like for Like.

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Lovereading helps me decide what real people read.

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!

It has opened my eyes to different authors and genres. Just log on and try, you will be surprised and not want for reading material again.
