Amy Crane's daughter, Evie, is six months old. And Amy, who's trying to decide whether to resume her high-pressure job in PR, adores her. These days, Amy doesn't exactly adore herself.

Even worse, the whole time she's feeling invisible and about as attractive as a barnyard animal, Amy suspects that Evie's father, Joe, is having an affair. Then Amy meets Alice, who seems to have the mommy thing down: she's single, slender, with groomed eyebrows, a smooth forehead, and killer clothes. Plus she has a sex life. In short, she's a Yummy Mummy, one of a new breed who manage to make motherhood look positively sexy. Under Alice's tutelage, Amy discovers that she's got some yumminess of her own. Joe takes notice, as does her handsome Pilates instructor, but once Amy's libido awakens from its extended slumber, a whole new set of problems develops.

Filled with acute perceptions of the challenges faced by new moms, as well as the uniquely terrifying landscape of new motherhood, The Yummy Mummy is as endearing and refreshing as a baby who sleeps through the night. Download and start listening now!

    " Some good dialog but overall I hated it. "

    " Easy and entertaining. Amy, a new mom tells how her life changed once she became pregnant. Lots of unfaithfulness, but some kind of revindication in the end. Focuses a lot on the appearance of the people and on the frugality of the relationships. "

    " Ok... I actually enjoyed this book. I like the writers voice and I appreciated the honesty. It was refreshing to explore this world amongst the British. Surely, female issues of body image, acceptance and love are indeed universal. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patrice | 7/19/2010

    " A nice, light "chick" book, perfect for reading on the beach or on a plane. I laughed and was entertained, even throughout the predictable parts. "

    " It was really slow in the beginning. The main character was so unlikeable. But she grew on me and ogt a back bone. I enjoyed the 2nd half better than the first. I could only suggest this book as a back burner read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chris | 3/3/2010

    " I was in the mood for some witty British humor and this book fell short for me. I read it to the end and got some enjoyment from the story but unfortunately not enough to recommend it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 12/24/2009

    " sad but true, i read this. perfect companion to late night nursing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracey | 12/15/2009

    " Very funny - any Mum will be able to identify with the J Ford nutty new mums out there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrice | 11/9/2009

    " I enjoyed this book far more than I thought I would. I bypassed it on my bookshelf for a long time. I thought it was going to be really superficial, but it actually had a very good, emotional underlying story. I thought it was great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 9/20/2009

    " I'm embarrassed to say how much I enjoyed this, and I'm not even a mummy, nor very yummy. Brit chick lit, done exceptionally well. Katie Fforde, or whatever the hell your name is, please take note. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacy | 9/4/2009

    " This British book is an easy read about becoming a new mom - to have the career? to stay at home? yada yada - nothing really new here but entertaining nevertheless! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Irina | 6/23/2009

    " Surprisingly charming chick/mommy lit I found for free in our mailroom! Williams is better at turning a witty phrase than other writers in the niche (there were a few lines I wanted to jot down), and she approaches her subject satirically, but not sardonically. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley | 4/30/2009

    " Entertaining novel about new motherhood. Does a great job of losing you in the story. "
