Bad Mother's Diary

Bad Mother's Diary: New Romantic Comedy / Motherhood Fiction


BRAND NEW laugh-out-loud romantic comedy, from bestselling romance author, Suzy K Quinn. If you liked the Unmumsy Mum, a Year in the Life of a Playground Mother and Life Swap, you'll LOVE this new feel-good romance. Juliette Duffy has had a baby. But motherhood isn't quite how she imagined it. She doesn't live in a cottage with roses around the door. She doesn't know how to get Daisy to sleep. She doesn't own a rolling pin. And then there's Daisy's sh*tbag of a father ... READER REVIEWS "The funniest book I've read in years. Laugh out loud romantic comedy." "The ending will have you crying with joy ..." "Motherhood fiction at its best." "Joyful, funny and uplifting - I could relate to everything Juliette went through." "Brings back all those happy memories of first motherhood. LOVED it!" "Brilliant...though I am not sure that word does it justice. I read this book on a whim while looking for parenting advice books and boy and I glad I did." "Loved this book. Was a fantastic read. Laughed cried then laughed again. Might just read it again now! Loved it!" "I liked the diary style as it broke up the chapters making it easier to stop when my everyday chores needed doing so that it was easy to pick up where i left off.....brilliant idea." BOOK EXTRACT Friday January 1st New Year's Day Back at Mum and Dad's after HUGE row with Nick. Am FURIOUS. Asked him to look after Daisy while I went to the supermarket (when I take her along, I get distracted by the 2-for-1s and buy random things, like jam-filled wagon wheels). Got home to find Nick playing computer games, with TEN empty bottles of original Guinness beside him. TEN BOTTLES! In TWO hours! I went mental. 'I've got a high tolerance for alcohol, ' he slurred. 'If I were drunk, I'd never have cracked this part of Assassin's Creed.' I demanded he walk in a straight line, and he fell over. As I was screaming at him, Nick's mum let herself into the apartment. She saw Nick on the floor and said, 'Do sit up straight, darling.' Then she asked what all the fuss was about. I said Nick was getting pissed when he was supposed to be looking after Daisy. 'Oh Nick, ' said Helen. 'But Juliette, he has been working all day. He's obviously stressed.' Working! All Nick's done today is read a two-page script for an online poker commercial. 'If I ever need relationship advice from a divorcee, ' I told Helen, 'I'll let you know.' Then I screamed at Nick at bit more, threw a bag together and said I was taking Daisy to my parent's house. I would have made a strong, dignified woman exit, except I had to come back for Daisy's pink waffle blanket, Teddy Snuggles, blackout curtain with suckers, spare nappies and finally her Lullaby Light Bear.
