Nailing It by Anna Jefferson
About The Book
This is motherhood.
Emily is raising two tiny feminists, building her freelance career and navigating life as a newly single mum – and feels like she’s failing horribly.
Tania just wants her other half to do his fair share – as long as it’s done her way. But being right isn’t nearly as much as fun as being in it together…
Helen has almost got family life sorted: a routine that suits them all, most days. Until her own mum turns up and turns calm into chaos.
Sometimes being a mum is the hardest job in the world. So can these three friends fake it till they make it?
Bitter sweet and real, this book will show you the dark side of the word family. And I am not saying this in a bad way, I really enjoyed this read, it was realistic and with a human touch, easy to fall for the characters and their stories; but at the same time it showed that perfection never exists, marriage needs work and family too.
This is part of a series, you can totally read it as standalone, but if you want to know more about these characters I would recommend you to start from the beginning, in the end you’ll feel like one more of their circle. I’ll admit that I was a little biased at the beginning of the book, I loved “Winging It” and I wasn’t sure I would enjoy this one so much, I was totally wrong. “Winging It” is more funny with weird situations about parenthood, while this one is more thoughtful, to make us value family and marriage, the balance we all do to keep the families working, you give and the other give, you lose the other one loses too.
I think in this book Emily is the least important in the story, and is the main character, but I think that I enjoyed more Tania and Helen’s struggles. Their friendship is amazing and how they can lean on each other in the worst moments, but Tania and Helen will show us that marriages need both parts to work while Emily and Nick are not talking at all!
I really hope that this will not be the last book of these amazing girls, they still have a lot more to share! If you are looking for a funny and interesting book about friendship and family this is your book, believe me.
