Review Of “Diary” on Dizzy C’s Little Book Blog.
I could identify with the chaos that is family life and how we coast along dealing with daily dramas not looking at the bigger picture and tending to those important areas that were once the focus of our lives (like Bridget Jones), romance and our sex lives. [Read more…]

Review on “I Heart Chick Lit”.
Diary of an Unsmug Married is actually a very funny, light-hearted book which will definitely give you a few laughs. Okay, scratch that. Barrels of laughs.

Chick Lit Club’s review of “Diary of an Unsmug Married”.
Based on the Mid Wife Crisis blog and paying homage to the Bridget Jones concept of the smug married, the book might prove a bit too political for some (there’s lots of explanatory footnotes for those not au fait with the British party system). For me, the crazy constituents and the blundering MP were the highlights. Nevertheless, there’s plenty of humour and marital misunderstandings to keep the general reader happy too. [Read more…]

“Diary of an Unsmug Married” on Love Reading.
A diary novel of midlife ‘affairs’, growing teenagers and juggling full time work with home. It is full of insecurities, doubts and misunderstandings as well as the small and seemingly trivial matters of a working mother. Written with a light touch and a great deal of humour, it has obvious comparisons to Bridget Jones (not least the title) but there is nothing wrong with that. There is an element of “will they, won’t they” to it which does keep you guessing. I thoroughly enjoyed it. [Read more…]
