‘Brilliantly funny, entertaining and damn amazing. Loved it.’ The Cosiest Corner, 5 stars
Frankie is a single mother. She’s bold. She’s brave. And she’s winning at life… isn’t she?
Underneath her big smile and daring outfits, Frankie’s hiding a secret. Her five-year-old son Liam is awesome. But life as a solo parent is tough. Her job as a barmaid sucks, her meddlesome mother is taking over and she’s far from living her best life.
She’s lost her way and she’s starting to feel… lonely.
When Frankie’s overbearing mother breaks her leg and has to go and live with her saintly sister, it’s time for Frankie to shake things up. Because she wants to turn things around for the little boy who holds the keys to her broken heart.
Surrounded by perfect mothers, Frankie quickly realises she needs some real mum friends to get her through repetitive school runs and red-faced dating disasters. The kind of people who don’t judge your shop bought cakes and bring wine to your door, just because.
So Frankie sweeps up anxious Kate and organised Alison in her whirlwind. As the unlikely trio face the trials and tantrums of motherhood, they learn that parenting is about surviving one day at a time.
And together they can wing it through anything, can’t they?
A hilarious, feel-good story for every parent who has ever struggled bleary-eyed through toddler tantrums, school fancy dress fails and found friendship over wine and cake. Perfect for fans of The UnMumsy Mum, Why Mummy Drinks and Fiona Gibson.

After an apparently good start, his destiny veers off course: his partner, a certain Lady Jane who was not exactly his wife, goes away with a lover. His business fails and "on one fateful sunday morning" his boat capsizes after hitting a tree and he dies. Meanwhile, his integration in the community had evolved so much that he had become one of the highest dignitaries of the land, the priest of the Panther’s Sacred cave. Before his death, he was embarked on a successful negociation with the family of Cecilia, the girl he wanted to marry.
A boy who had been Cecilia’s friend comes back from town where he had gone without leaving an address, and the old idyl revives: she changes her mind about marrying McCormick. On hearing about the accident, Mammy Suzanna, the girl’s aunt asks Cecilia to bring "the other boy", which she does. The old woman organizes an elopement herself after explaining everything to the young man -not to the girl. On their way to Bandoni, the canoe carrying the couple disappears in the estuary during a storm. One of the two paddlers dies, the newly-wed boy too. The girl is rescued by the crew of a passing motor boat. The other paddler manages to swim ashore.
When his mother became President, Alex Claremont-Diaz was promptly cast as the American equivalent of a young royal. Handsome, charismatic, genius—his image is pure millennial-marketing gold for the White House. There's only one problem: Alex has a beef with the actual prince, Henry, across the pond. And when the tabloids get hold of a photo involving an Alex-Henry altercation, U.S./British relations take a turn for the worse.
Heads of family, state, and other handlers devise a plan for damage control: staging a truce between the two rivals. What at first begins as a fake, Instragramable friendship grows deeper, and more dangerous, than either Alex or Henry could have imagined. Soon Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret romance with a surprisingly unstuffy Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations and begs the question: Can love save the world after all? Where do we find the courage, and the power, to be the people we are meant to be? And how can we learn to let our true colors shine through? Casey McQuiston's Red, White & Royal Blue proves: true love isn't always diplomatic.
