Summary

So I’m knocked up again. Preggers. Up the duff. Or to put it another way...whoops. 

And while Alex and I get our heads around unexpected parenthood, I’m having all the usual pregnancy symptoms: throwing up, indigestion, sciatica, constipation, migraines and brain-fuddling tiredness. Mother Nature is a psychopathic old hag. Luckily, modern science offers some lovely distractions in the form of cruise ships and European air travel. This summer I’m determined to get away. Mum is demanding the usual Duffy family all-inclusive Greek holiday. Dad wants to go camping in Norfolk. And Alex...well he’s asked me on a five-star luxury cruise. The trouble is, his mother is comin,g too....

Unlikeable characters.

The main female character is whiney, self entitled, lazy, contradicts herself constantly and intensely annoying.

Not one ounce of empathy for her. Feckless and whose qualities embody those I loathe in other females.

Instead of being a strong independent woman (who appears to be able to get pregnant by accident an alarming amount of times in this day and age) she appears to expect to be swept up and away by a rich suitor who will rescue her. If I had been a bloke she'd set her sights on I'd have scarpered.

I shouted FFS at her so many times. Along with at her loathsome family and friends.

Stick to the Why Mummy Drinks series, not this poor imitation.

it was good until I got halfway through

miscarriage ahead I was listening to this at 4 in the morning I realize that we need to talk about miscarriages it's something that happens and it's quite common however this is not included in the synopsis at all. I feel that you should tell people that this is going to happen I realize that when miscarriages happen it is quite abrupt and you don't realize it happened, however, this could trigger someone severely. I was happy today and then I got to the part and my whole mood crashed other than that the books are quite good although I wish that she had just stayed single because Alex and the other one or kind of crappy to me the more you read and hear listen to the about them to me or kind of crappy
