About the book

No question about it, there are two little purple lines. I’m pregnant.

After eight years together, Lil Bailey thought she’d already found ‘the one’ – that is, until he dumped her for a blonde twenty-something colleague. So she does what any self-respecting singleton would do: swipes right, puts on her best bra and finds herself on a first date with a handsome mountaineer called Max. What’s the worst that can happen?

Well it’s pretty bad actually. First Max ghosts her and then, after weeing on a stick (but mostly her hands), a few weeks later Lil discovers she’s pregnant. She’s single, thirty-one and living in a thimble-sized flat in London, it’s hardly the happily-ever-after she was looking for.

Lil’s ready to do the baby-thing on her own – it can’t be that hard, right? But she should probably tell Max, if she can track him down. Surely he’s not that Max, the highly eligible, headline-grabbing son of Lord and Lady Rushbrooke, currently trekking up a mountain in South Asia? Oh, maybe he wasn’t ignoring Lil after all…

My thoughts

Where to start? This is an absolutely engrossing read and the storyline is brilliantly genuine and funny.

I loved watching how Lily grew (no bump puns intended!) emotionally throughout the book.

The author has managed to take on a potentially hugely complex and tough situation with a lot of love and humour. I laughed so much as I was reading this book.

All of the characters pack a punch. The background characters are superbly written and the more books I read for review, the more important that becomes to me. This book got every one of the characters perfectly for me!

I read this book last month and have been talking about it ever since. It’s packed full of emotion and it carries a very genuine message. I loved it.

Thanks so much to Harper Collins for including me in this blog tour and for providing me with a copy of What Happens Now in return for an honest review.

With a pinch of empowerment, a teaspoon of solitude and the odd G&T I'm not shy of an opinion or letting you know what passions stir my mind! Musings of a binge reader.
