‘There’s life Before Baby and life After Baby. Any idiot knows that. I knew that. Except I didn’t now what life After Baby would really be like . . .’

Georgie Henderson is having a bad year. As a new – working – mum, she strives to be Sheryl Sandberg at work and Martha Stewart at home. But she’s discovering that in the twenty-first century being a Good Working Mum means answering emails at midnight while you purée vegetables and line up play dates and French lessons for your four-month-old daughter.

Georgie’s ex, Jase, gets 100 per cent of the credit for 5 per cent of the work, and her best friend, Nina, is on a ‘self-discovery’ journey that involves a 25-year-old bartender and a plan to become an artisanal florist. And all Georgie’s mum wants is for Georgie to find a man. Preferably the one who is the father of her child . . .

‘Lauren Sams is the hilarious best friend you haven’t met yet.’ – Maggie Alderson

Crazy Busy Guilty is instantly relatable! Whose life isn’t crazy and busy? And guilt is an occupational hazard of being a mum.’ – Jessica Rowe
