This is Marian Keyes meets Allison Pearson, with a dash of Caitlin Moran. Going from one child to two is never all that easy for a family, but when Emma's husband simultaneously fathers a third child three doors up the street, things get very tricky, very fast. No longer is it enough for Emma to be the best wife and mother - now she's trying to be the best ex-wife, and the best part-time parent to her ex's love child, and that's before she even thinks about adding a new bloke to the mix. Set in an upwardly mobile, ultra-competitive suburb, this is a funny, biting, heartwarming modern comedy that looks at the roles we play, how we compete, and what happens when we dare to strive for second-best. 'Jessica Dettmann is a fine comic writer. She has an eye for the small details, irritations and inspirations of life which coupled with a truly original turn of phrase and great way with a gag makes for sparkling and heart-warming reading.'

For those who love Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, Alexander McCall Smith and novels with heart, soul and a dose of commonsense. I wasn't enjoying the afternoon of 23 February even before I learnt that my husband was having an affair ... The news of her husband's infidelity comes as a nasty shock to Jenny Reynolds, part-time building control officer and full-time mother - even though, to her surprise and embarrassment, her first reaction is relief, not anguish. What really hurts is her children's unhappiness at the break-up, and the growing realisation that, alone, she may lose the family farm. This is the story of the year after Jenny's old life falls apart; of family and farming, pet lambs and geriatric dogs, choko-bearing tenants and Springsteen-esque neighbours. And of just perhaps a second chance at happiness.

For those who love Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, Alexander McCall Smith and novels with heart, soul and a dose of commonsense. I wasn't enjoying the afternoon of 23 February even before I learnt that my husband was having an affair ... The news of her husband's infidelity comes as a nasty shock to Jenny Reynolds, part-time building control officer and full-time mother - even though, to her surprise and embarrassment, her first reaction is relief, not anguish. What really hurts is her children's unhappiness at the break-up, and the growing realisation that, alone, she may lose the family farm. This is the story of the year after Jenny's old life falls apart; of family and farming, pet lambs and geriatric dogs, choko-bearing tenants and Springsteen-esque neighbours. And of just perhaps a second chance at happiness. PRAISE 'An emotional rollercoaster ride, with a fair serve of humour and wit' Herald Sun 'Funny, hopeful and big-hearted, When It All Went to Custard is a story about family, farming, second chances, and finding your feet. Fans of Marian Keyes, Sophie Kinsella and Cecelia Ahern are guaranteed to love it' Better Reading 'The special treat in store is the witty dialogue, and especially the way Hawkins captures the offbeat things kids say and do, and the insight into small-community, country life' Stuff NZ PRAISE FOR DANIELLE HAWKINS 'Author Danielle Hawkins ... has a talent for witty and convincing dialogue and this, in particular, gives The Pretty Delicious Cafe verve and humour. She's also a skilled sculptor of characters' Otago Daily Times 'Danielle Hawkins' quirky humour and easy style make [The Pretty Delicious Cafe] a great summer read' Dominion Post 'Utterly delectable with a twist of spice and a touch of zest!'

DOS MUJERES MUY DIFERENTES Y UN PROYECTO EN COMÚN: 100 DÍAS FELICES Annie aborrece su vida. No le gusta su trabajo, ni compartir piso, ni tener que volver a la casilla de salida con treinta y cinco años. Se está recuperando de una terrible pérdida y no quiere hablar de ello. Pero todo cambia cuando conoce a Polly. Esta joven alegre, vivaz, excéntrica y francamente entrometida acaba de recibir una noticia que la ha hecho consciente de lo valioso que es cada segundo de nuestra vida y está convencida de que debemos ser felices a toda costa. Para ello, le pide a Annie que la acompañe en una misión que durará cien días y en la que todos los días, cada una de ellas hará algo que la haga sentirse feliz. Poco a poco, Annie empezará a abrirse de nuevo al amor y a la amistad, y descubrirá que quizás sí es posible volver a encontrar la alegría, ya sea en los grandes triunfos o en las pequeñas cosas. Reseñas: «Sensible y encantadora.» Kirkus Reviews «Una novela deliciosamente adictiva, pese al inevitable final de Polly. Polly es un personaje maravilloso, tiene una actitud positiva contagiosa, memorable y magnética, y una buena dosis de humor negro. La alegría está ahí todo el tiempo, aunque sea empapada de lágrimas, porque esta novela es una lección de vida que no debe pasar desapercibida.» Publishers Weekly «Simplemente irresistible... Woods gustará sobre todo a las fans de Graeme Simsion, Gabrielle Zevin y Marian Keyes.» Library Journal «Una lectura simpática, inteligente, sabia y agridulce sobre el amor, la vida y la amistad.

Una lectura maravillosa.» Alice Peterson «Un libro repleto de hermosas lecciones de amor, pérdida, amistad y redención... Una lectura perfecta para sentirse bien. Una novela cálida, divertida y reflexiva que es todo corazón y emoción.» Lori Nelson Spielman, autora de The Life List Los lectores han dicho: «Esta historia me absorbió desde la primera página, me hizo sentir muy cerca de los personajes y mantuvo mi corazón en vilo hasta el final. Gasté un paquete entero de pañuelos mientras la leía, pero también me hizo reír a carcajadas y me dejó muy claro que la vida es lo que tú haces con ella.» «Todo lo que podía pedir de una historia en la que se insta a vivir el momento y a ser consciente de la importancia de la amistad.» «Una gran lectura catártica que equilibra perfectamente el entretenimiento y la importancia de vivir la vida al máximo.» «El elenco de personajes es maravilloso y muy diverso, y la trama, una historia inteligente de curación y de amistad. Eva Woods mezcla con habilidad el dolor y la alegría en esta inspiradora novela que permanecerá en el corazón y la mente de sus lectores mucho después de acabarla.» Una novela irresistible que insta a disfrutar de cada momento.

After all, life isn't a scene from the movies, is it? But then, through a misted-up bus window one snowy December day, she sees a man she knows instantly is the one. Their eyes meet, there's a moment of pure magic...and then her bus drives away. Laurie thinks she'll never see the boy from the bus again.

In her memoir, she vividly recounts falling in love, wrestling with self-sabotage, finding a job, throwing a socially disastrous Rod-Stewart themed house party, getting drunk, getting dumped, realising that Ivan from the corner shop is the only man you've ever been able to rely on, and finding that that your mates are always there at the end of every messy night out. It's a book about bad dates, good friends and - above all else - about recognising that you and you alone are enough. Glittering with wit and insight, heart and humour, Dolly Alderton's powerful début weaves together personal stories, satirical observations, a series of lists, recipes, and other vignettes that will strike a chord of recognition with women of every age - while making you laugh until you fall over. Everything I know About Love is about the struggles of early adulthood in all its grubby, hopeful uncertainty.

Amanda Wilkie unexpectedly finds herself alone with her three children in a rambling Victorian house in London. Her husband leaves them, claiming he's just "lost the love", like one might carelessly lose a glove. A few months later, Amanda's heavily pregnant friend, Ali, crashes into her kitchen announcing her husband is also leaving. So, after Ali's baby Grace is born, they both move into Amanda's attic. And when Jacqui, a long-lost friend and fellow single mum, starts dropping by daily, the household is complete. Getting divorced is no walk in the park, but the three friends refuse to be defined by it. And, as they slowly emerge out of the wreckage like a trio of sequin-clad Gloria Gaynors singing "I Will Survive", they realise that anything is possible. Even loving again... Perfect for fans of Marian Keyes, Gill Sims and Tracy Bloom. Praise for The Single Mums' Mansion: 'There was something inherently charming and satisfying about how imperfect everyone is within the story' C.R. Elliott. 'I cannot wait to tell friends about it as I am sure they will enjoy as much as I did' Molly Stulmaker. 'Once I was done, I kept hearing "I will survive" in my head' Cheryl Weaver. 'An intriguing and fun read, purely delightful' Gaele Hince. 'In short I absolutely ADORED reading The Single Mums' Mansion' Amanda Oughton. When the husband moves out, move the best friends in...
