Porn Money & Wannabe Mummy, Laura Barnard

When I finally got around to reading the last of this trilogy, I really did not want to be disturbed and I could have quite easily just sat and read the whole book in one.  The trouble is work kind of did get in the way and housework (even more boring)!  Although the odd kicking of my boy dancing in my uterus, was a welcome distraction of coarse!

What is it about turning thirty that sends rational women into a tailspin?

Suddenly going from having all the time in the world, to cringing at the ticking of her biological clock, Poppy is drowning under the strain of trying to get pregnant.

With a dad in the throes of a mid-life crisis, a crazy mother-in-law and time racing towards Lilly’s wedding, will she be able to cope with it all…and give Ryan the baby they so desperately want?

Finally able to inherit her dad’s porn money, Jazz can’t wait to be rich! She can buy a house in Chelsea, go out partying with her old mates and start living how she deserves. 

But with Ollie, Jemima and Meryl each clawing at their own little piece of her happiness, will she have to leave behind those closest to her in exchange for it?

The real question is, can Poppy and Jazz rescue their own lives before everything gets ruined, or will their own stubbornness destroy the lives they’ve created.

Poppy and Jazz are back again for more shenanigans and I couldn’t wait to get comfy and get stuck into the follow up to The Debt and The Doormat, and I wasn’t disappointed by the story either!  Ryan and Poppy have tied the knot and living in wedding bliss and she is still overcome with excitement for that, although it still hasn’t sunk in.  I feel sad that she still has to question why Ryan is with her, poor girl.

Jazz now has Jemima her toddler who now rules the household with her ways and has everyone twisted around her little finger as normally little kids do (especially girls, believe me I had that with my niece!)  So every decision and discussion that takes place is always revolves around her, including decorating of rooms in the house and what they eat for dinner.  And although Jazz struggles to cope with motherhood she has a great support network (eventually after her mother shows her lack of support by thinking that shopping helps!)  Jemima has discovered her voice and loves her aunt Pawpy and Uncle Wyan!

Although Poppy is still pining for a family, her and Ryan start to look into other options and trying to hide it isn’t easy.  And it seems the timing of everything else isn’t going to plan and causing her stresses and strains, everyone else’s problems seem to also become Poppy’s much to Ryan’s annoyance.  Poppy trying to deal with what is going on around her and being able to adjust to life with Ryan permanently in her life and not keeping secrets from him seems to be hard for her.

I love how this story is ultimately a love story but with the comedy and action that is also packed into it, the characters that come along with Poppy and Jazz are the same old characters but they seem to be more quirky than they were before.  Look out for Beryl’s new friend Simon, hilarious how he was added in and has added so much more character that made me want to cringe yet laugh out loud.

Once again Laura, a lovely well written book and thank you for the entertainment!
