Ms Conception

About the book: 
Jo de Villiers has a three-year-old son, a six-month-old baby and a husband who’s feeling left out. Her marriage to Nick and her job as a scriptwriter for a local soapie both seem to be heading south, along with her breasts. Between toddler tantrums, dirty nappies, potty training and the nursery-school run, she squeezes in writing assignments and meetings, while dealing with a boss from hell, a self-centred mother, an overly genteel mother-in-law and the ‘Blonde Bob Brigade’. 

But will she be able to hang on to her job, and what is she going to do about the floozy who is pursuing her man? With the help of her George Clooney-lookalike therapist Jake and best friend Jasmine, Jo discovers an unusual remedy for an ailing relationship …
Racy, honest and wickedly funny, suburban life with small children has never been so entertaining.
