‘God, she’s funny!’ Jilly Cooper

Following the huge success of the hilarious debut novel Why Mummy Drinks, Gill Sims is back, and this time, she’s got a few choice words to share…

It’s every parent’s nightmare – the start of the summer holidays.

Instead of sitting in the sun with a glass of cold, crisp Pinot Grigio, Mummy has two bored children to attend to, PTA meetings and parents-in-law. What is more, Mummy has found herself a new challenge, working for one of the hottest new tech start-ups, which occupies a sexy, glossy glass office block full of beautiful people. But not only is she worrying if, at forty-two, she could actually get up off a bean bag with dignity, she’s also somehow (accidentally) rebranded herself as a hot, single party girl who works hard, plays hard and doesn’t have to run out when the nanny calls in sick…

Can Mummy keep it together? Or even find time for a G & T anymore?

We have sets of 10 copies to give away to 10 lucky reading groups, enter for your chance to win!
