Perfect Mishap – Mothers Ruined (The Perfect Disaster Book 3)
Laugh-out-loud funny with a hapless heroine everyone can relate to, Perfect Mishap (Previously Mothers Ruined) is a perfect summer read.” – Kerry Barrett
Dottie is back, in her first full-length novel, and life couldn’t be more chaotic.
Husband Henry is hundreds of miles away in Scotland, drinking whisky on a work “jolly”, leaving heavily pregnant Dottie to move house to a quiet village, on her own with two young children. When Dottie goes into labour three weeks early it’s a race against time for Henry to make it back for the birth of his new daughter.
Once the proud parents are back at home with their new addition – who surprises everyone by being a boy and not the girl they were expecting – recently promoted Henry continues to travel up and down the country, leaving Dottie struggling to adjust to village life. The other villagers seem a little bit on the snotty side – although that could be because when Dottie first meets them she has dyed her children green. So when she accidentally hears her neighbours’ conversations over the baby monitor, she can’t help but use the information she hears in her quest to build new friendships.
But of course, we all know that earwigging doesn’t end well, and when Dottie discovers two of her neighbours are having an affair she’s horrified. Worse still, she soon finds out the locals are convinced she’s the one who’s doing the cheating. It’s up to Dottie to clear her name and expose the real cheat – in her signature haphazard way!
