Book Review

Review – Playgroups and Prosecco by Jo Middleton

Today is my stop on the blog tour for Playgroups and Prosecco by Jo Middleton. This book is absolutely brilliant!


January 3rd 
Jaffa Cakes – 7. Times I was forced to watch a small child do a dance involving a dusty piece of ribbon found under the sofa – 4. Inappropriate thoughts about Zac Efron – undisclosed. 

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 really needs a playdate of her own. (Now pass the prosecco.) 

My Review:

Oh my goodness! I can’t remember the last time a book makes me laugh in tears like this. What an absolutely hilarious but so very relatable and feel good story!

As a new mum, I honestly see myself in Frankie, the main character of the book. The struggle of trying to balance work and home, the self double, the parental pride, the highs, the lows and the need for a glasses (or two) of Prosecco! This is such a honest and genuine recount of motherhood and parenthood.

I love the fact that the book is written as diary entries. It just makes the whole book so fun to read! The parts about Tinder and Instagram are just too funny and again are such candid reflections of what’s going on nowadays on social medias.

I love Frankie. This is one of those characters that you will warm up to instantly. I want Frankie to be my friend. I feel like Frankie and I could be the best friends! Honestly this book just makes me feel so good! There is nothing not to like about this book. If you want a feel good story, then definitely read this!

Playgroups and Prosecco is out now on all platforms!

Thank you so much Ellie and Ebury Publishing for gifting me this copy to review.
