''This book was so much fun to read that I couldn''t put it down and HAD to read it in…one sitting... I loved every minute of it.'' Pretty Little Book ReviewsJenny has too much on her plate: literally – she’s only expecting one child but she’s eating for at least three. Not to mention trying to juggle her nightmare boss, a know-it-all sister, and an infuriatingly laid-back husband. She used to be known for her ‘Single Girl About Town’ column. But when her boss gives her job to a younger colleague, Jenny panics and proposes she blogs instead about being a clueless new mum. Surely people will find her new friendship group fascinating? (Even if the only thing they seem to have in common is that they all had sex around the same time 9 months ago...)And if her readers aren’t quite hooked yet, maybe Jenny will just have to be more liberal with the truth. After all, none of the other mums will read it… will they? The Undercover Mother is a hilarious parenting page-turner that will make you laugh, cry and want to crack open the gin. Perfect for fans of Why Mummy Drinks and The Bad Mother’s Diary. What readers are saying about The Undercover Mother‘Oh my goodness this book resonated with me on so many levels!.. I am a new mum… so as soon as I read the blurb for this book I knew I HAD to read it – and even after just the first few pages I was laughing – it was like the author had been following me for the last six months of my pregnancy!! The book is so true to what happens, it is written so well and so funny - No hesitation in giving this book a massive five stars - it was BRILLIANT!!’ Donna’s Book Blog, 5 stars''Oh my goodness this was absolutely hilarious!

I simply couldn''t stop laughing through this book. Emma Robinson''s writing is so relatable that any mother/reader can put herself in Jenny''s shoes… The book is hilarious and fun. It captures perfectly the transition experience from a woman to a mom.’ Bookish Lifestyle, 5 stars''Oh my days. I loved this book... The Undercover Mother is certainly in parts a laugh out loud read, it''s also a comfort read, sometimes happy, funny and sometimes a little sad... I could relate to so much of this from when I was a new mum... Winging it, thinking everyone else has their sh*t together, and there is only you in the world that isn''t managing everything... First Class read, I recommend this book to anyone who wants a fun, yet real read. Friendships, secrets, lies, revelations, laughter, tears, relationships. This book covers it all…
