Sarah Broadhurst's view...

As the chics who started the chic-lit trend get older, so too does their subject matter. This lovely writer is now into book number seven and tackles the fear of committing to a baby, the girl’s fear! Nice one.

Comparison: Fiona Walker, Sheila O’Flanagan, Catherine Alliott.
Similar this month: Jill Mansell, Sarah Jackman.

Synopsis

Ready Or Not? by Chris Manby

Every bride is entitled to some pre-wedding jitters. And what girl wouldn’t think twice about marriage when her fiancé gets his eyebrows shaved off just in time to look horrendous for the photographs . . . But what if it’s not the ceremony that freaks you out but the happy ever after? Heidi Savage is wondering whether she can really forsake all others for macho, beer-swilling Ed. And how can a couple who’ve never even been baby-sitters be ready to start a family of their own? Will the answer come in the form of her ex-boyfriend Steven? Grown-up, gorgeous and good-with-children. Is Heidi’s dilemma simply a case of right shoes, right dress, wrong husband?

Reviews

It's a great idea for a plot, and Manby's writing more than does it justice Marie Claire on GETTING PERSONAL A fast-track, fun romance full of monkey business Daily Mail on GIRL MEETS APE Nothing short of brilliant Marie Claire on SEVEN SUNNY DAYS Very funny, hugely feel-good and the perfect antidote for anyone who worries that the only career ladder they've achieved is a run in their tights Fiona Walker on LIZZIE JORDAN'S SECRET LIFE A deliciously comical novel that's peppered with characters who are so endearing you'll want to take them home and introduce them to your mum ... GIRL MEETS APE is charming, funny and compelling as your favourite soap ... it's a rip-roaring good read Heat
