Summary

When her husband, David, announces he’s been offered a job in New York, Saoirse is thrilled. The glamour of the big city, the shopping, the culture, not to mention the free Manhattan apartment and business-class air fare - what’s not to like? There’s just the small matter of making it work for their daughter, five-year-old Anna, who isn’t so keen to leave her friends and school behind.

The Big Apple in the middle of summer isn’t quite the holiday Saoirse envisaged, and with David away with work, New York apartment sizes on the miniscule side and the pace of life faster than the sleepy London suburbs, solo ex-pat parenting pushes Saoirse to her limits.

And as the pressure builds and ‘faking it till she makes it’ isn’t cutting it, there’s only one thing for it - Saoirse and Anna need a new plan, and ‘winging it’ might be their best option....

Emma Murray returns with this laugh-out-loud funny adventure about parenting, travelling and finding your tribe - on both sides of the pond.

Critic reviews

"With wit, brio and fabulous humour, Emma Murray again delivers a page-turner about travel, parenthood, trying to fit in and finding your own tribe. If Emma Murray writes it, I want to read it. Hilarious." (Cathy Kelly)

"Emma Murray’s writing is so deft: rib ticklingly funny and also heartbreakingly poignant at times that the reader is swept along with Saoirse and her cast of supporting characters as they navigate their increasingly hectic lives." (Fay Keenan)

"Emma tells it how it is with real honesty and it made me laugh out loud." (Janet Hoggarth)

Enjoyable read

This was my first Emma Murray book, I throughly enjoyed it and will look for other that she has written. This is the 3rd book in a series, so don't miss the first 2.
