Unlike her previous book, this one has erotic thoughts but no action and I am fine with that. Frankly speaking, I find erotica often repetitive and dull if not delivered with a deft hand.
Emmanuelle has written a funny book, with human frailty and human observations. I was transported back to my own late stage of pregnancy and placed myself in her protagonist's shoes. Except for feeling as if I read three chapters of a book and not the entire thing, I highly recommend this to those who have lived through pregnancy and yet retained their libidos. It is also a nice trip through the Cornish coast.
Baby Love is written in the style of a diary and also uses text and phrasing as if you had written your own diary, cutting out all the 'me's and 'I's which are obvious really.
Delphine's husband is good looking and good in the sack, he knows it as well as Delphine . . . and so does the lady next door! It's terrible timing when at Christmas, Delphine finds herself pregnant and husbandless. I'm sure we've all made the wrong choice of bloke somewhere along the line and can feel for the bleak outlook of her life. I loved Delphine as a character, she didn't deserve the hand she'd been dealt, and I sympathised with her situation. Delphine has hit rock bottom when her well meaning sisters come to the rescue and cause more hilarity at the spa they've booked the three of them into.
Overall, a very good and funny story with moments of pathos. The wry outlook on life and the ironic humour makes this a well worth satirical read.
A diary written with fun in mind. A woman scorned in the throws of late pregnancy. Not my usual subject matter at all (in fact miles away from it). That said I enjoyed this lighthearted, comedic read. Well written in the first person from Delphine’s point of view this is written as if you had penned it yourself. (no “I”’s or “me”’s if that makes sense just “Went to the bathroom and...”). Somehow this makes it more personal and you feel that you get to know Delphine quickly and easily. A short story to be enjoyed over coffee on a summer’s day. I voluntarily chose to read this ARC and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
The diary style is reminiscent of Bridget Jones in that the note-taking style eliminates a lot of repetition of "I" from the text. That worked nicely for me and made the story bounce along rapidly. What worked even better for me was that the gently self-effacing humour comes from a talent for non-biting sarcasm and understatement; the moments that made me snort into my tea came from Emmanuelle's clever word play, and not a succession of cringe-making embarrassments (a la Bridget Jones).
It's a really wonderful way to pass a boring commute, for less than the cost of the sandwich you'd buy to sustain yourself on the journey. Buy, be entertained, feel uplifted when you get home
Written in the form of a diary, Delphine tells the story of how she fell pregnant after trying so hard for years, only for her rat bag cheating husband to leave her at Christmas. Fast forward a few weeks to February and a spa break organised by her two sisters and we have a gem of a story - had me in stitches in parts.
A sweet tale and fitting that I read it on St Valentine's Day.
