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…
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.
