“Just ask Jamie and Laura Newman, who (thanks to a rather relaxed attitude to contraception) find themselves about to have a baby. It’s obviously a terrifying prospect for a newly married couple, but as long as they stick to get her they’ll be fine, right?
They’d better because the paths between conception and those first few baby steps is littered with many obstacles – being struck down with morning sickness in public, cocktail drinking days being out on hold and violent moods swings. Life will never be the same again”
I got this book from Sharon at
Who I am reviewing it for. So thanks Sharon.
So this is the sequel to ‘Love From Both Sides’ here we follow Jamie and Laura’s individual perspectives through pregnancy and childbirth right up to their baby Poppy’s first birthday.
Laura is dealing with hormones, sickness and exhaustion and poor Jamie is getting a pretty rough time of it too, As Laura’s mood swings are out of control. What we have come to expect from this loveable couple is that they attract bad luck like you wouldn’t believe.
Which lead to a hilarious, emotional and painfully honest account of having children.
Yet again Nick Spalding managed to make me laugh until my sides hurt and I had tears running down my face. The camping scenario causing me to stop breathing from laughter.
Not only did I laugh I got quite emotional too. That is down to the sheer brilliance of Spalding’s writing.
Beneath the laughter is yet again a remarkable story of a couple who are genuinely in love.
I really look forward to any more Jamie and Laura books. I’m now off to order every book that Nick Spalding has written.
