Our Review

This book will have you laughing out loud from start to finish.
Emma is getting a little disillusioned with her boyfriend Ned as he is always embarking on harebrained schemes in the form of business ideas. However she fully supports him and has to be the sensible one who looks after their day to day needs.
When she finds out she is pregnant she realises that she would be better off going it alone which Ned isn't happy about.
She figures she will be okay as she can rely on her savings, that is until she discovers her savings have been stolen.
She eventually moves into a house with a nutty elderly neighbour who has her under surveillance and is forced to take a job as a chaperone to her young cousin where she meets her nemesis in the form of sex mad Martha.
Through it all she really misses her sister Alex who is away doing charity work in foreign climes.

When a drunken stranger turns up on her doorstep she is forced to make one of three choices; feed him to next doors dog, call the police or take pity on him, I'll leave you to discover which course of action she takes.

Emma is a lovely character who has got herself into a series of sticky situations and watching her deal with each and every one was lots of fun thanks to the humour in the writing.

Catherine Bennetto is a brilliant comedy writer and has an hilarious turn of phrase. This was a really enjoyable read.
