THE Rise and Fall of a Yummy Mummy starts where most chick lit novels end: Amy's got the man - handsome, successful, dependable Joe - and is about to give birth to their first baby.
But, rather than living happily ever after, Amy sees Joe with another woman. Afraid to risk entering parenthood alone, she ignores Joe's indiscretion, and focuses on new daughter Evie. With all her energy taken up with the baby, Amy has no time for herself, and it isn't until nine months later that she realises she's lost all her confidence.
Then she meets Alice, a glamorous single mum who vows to help transform her into a yummy mummy.
Featured on the Sunday Times bestseller list, The Rise and Fall of a Yummy Mummy is witty, but more thoughtful and less frothy than your average chick lit. Many of Amy's dilemmas will be familiar to new mums, such as sleep deprivation, baby weight and having neither the time nor the energy to brush your hair. The advances of a hunky Pilates instructor may be less common, but that's what books are for.
