Single mum Frankie’s whole life revolves around her kids. But when your toddler has a more active social life, something has to change. Forget ‘me-time’, Frankie would settle for some adult conversation, and watching something other than the Disney channel.
The local playgroup may be ruled by Instagram mums with perfect husbands but Frankie accidentally forms a splinter group of single parents. After all, Mummy reallyneeds a playdate of her own. (Now pass the prosecco.)
Hot Brands Cool Places Review
Playgroups and Prosecco is a very funny and relatable novel describing the life of single mum Frankie. Jo Middleton has very cleverly observed and recorded delightful anecdotes which combine poignancy with laugh-out loud moments, making it a delightful read. A brilliant debut novel.
