Did My Love Life Shrink in the Wash? by Kristen Bailey / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @mrsbaileywrites


Sure, my bedroom gets lots of action. It’s called snoring.

Will and I didn’t have a clue what we were signing up for. It turns out that there’s loads we weren’t warned about:

1) You’ll spend more time spooning your child’s cuddly donkey than your own boyfriend.
2) Communication with your other half will be via post-it notes on the fridge, mainly telling him to buy more milk.
3) If you make the mistake of going to a nightclub you’ll nod off, drool, and be woken up by an angry bouncer.
4) In the middle of the night you’ll be begging Siri for advice on getting your baby to sleep. (Whale music doesn’t work.)
5) Sex is something that happened in another dimension.

But even if I feel like I’m waiting for my motherhood powers to come in the post, at least I’ve got Will. Our old life – festivals, sambuca shots, an actual sex life – might be a distant memory, but we can get through anything together, can’t we?

At least that’s what I thought until, one day, Will walked out on us… If I’m on my own (apart from Siri, obviously) can I do this whole parenting thing? Or I am destined to lose my sanity one sleepless night at a time?




Wooohooo book 3 in this fabulous series and I loved it as much as the other 2.

The Callaghan sisters… 5 great women. They are all different, but the have one thing in common: they always have each other’s back. They stick together no matter what or where they are.

I already had the pleasure of reading the first two books and was enjoying them thoroughly. Although they are all utterly hilarious, there are some emotional rollercoasters involved too.

Every book puts one of the sisters in the spotlight, but because, as I said before, they are always there for each other, the whole family is always present too.  

This time it was middle sister Beth’s turn to give us in peek into her every day life and if you have children too, you will recognize yourself in some (a lot of) situations she finds herself in.

The author lights up my day with her stories. Winter, clouds, rain, fed up with 2020,… take one of this author’s books and the sun will come out.

I am sad there are  only 5 sisters but on the other hand I am happy there are still 2 more books to come and to look forward to. 5 stars.

Thank you, Kristen Bailey and Bookouture
