Publisher's Summary

All good things come in the little packages.

Meet the Baby Group: Natalie ran her own design company until baby Freddie unexpectedly came along. Now the capable person she once was is trapped inside a crazy woman's body, longing for just one decent night's sleep and words of more than one syllable.

Meg is onto her fourth child but still feels she has to take notes.

Meg's sister-in-law Frances organises her little boy like he's a private in the army, but underneath her prickly facade she longs for the kind of friendships others seem to find so easy.

Former career girl Jess sees danger lurking in every corner, doubting she'll ever be a good mother. Stay-at-home house-husband Steve is just glad to have the opportunity to spend time with his daughter.

And 16-year-old Tiffany is the youngest, yet possibly the wisest, of them all.

It's about six very different parents, and six very different lives. But when Natalie's dodgy wiring leads to a series of chance encounters they rapidly discover, through Baby Music, Baby Aerobics, coffee, and more importantly cake, that there's safety in numbers. And their own unofficial baby group is formed.

If you've got kids...

You will see yourself in so many of these characters! I loved this book. I laughed and laughed. I became one of the baby group whilst reading this book. Lovely, easy and funny listen.

Long for the story it tells

A good story, a little long for the story it tells. Could have been 8 hours long as still told the same tale. Easy to listen to and a good hoilday listen.

Funny and 'Unputdownable'

Addictive, funny and sadly believable - great, strong characters that you will end up wanting to share a coffee morning with. Highly recommended!
