Synopsis

Happy Families by Janey Fraser

Bobbie’s at the end of her tether. Her children don’t listen to a word she says and her husband is never home. Even worse, her mother is bringing a new boyfriend to visit: the notorious Dr Know, who dishes out hardline parental advice to the nation. Could Parenting Classes save Bobbie’s bacon?

Andy’s family is so perfect that his wife has been asked to run a parenting class at the local school. But Pamela has been leading a secret life and suddenly he’s left to look after their two teenage daughters. Surprisingly, they aren’t quite as perfect as he thought.

Vanessa hasn’t seen her daughter for years. But one night, her six-year-old granddaughter is deposited on her doorstep. This time she’s determined to get it right.

Can they learn the secret of raising a perfect family?

Reviews

A sweetly humorous book, it will have you giggling one moment and near to tears the next. Perfect with a glass of wine when the sprogs are in bed! * Closer * I couldn't put the book down * No. 1 Book group *
