The Accidental Mother by Rowan Coleman
Sophie Mills has worked her Manolo Blahniks off to reach the near-top of her profession. And she's very happy with her priorities in life - her job, her neurotic cat Artemis and her passion for shoes. After all, relationships only get in the way. And as for children - She hasn't even begun to think about them yet. Until one day an unexpected visitor brings news of a strange inheritance and Sophie is suddenly, out of the blue, in sole charge of two children under the age of six. But motherhood can't be all that hard, can it? Within twenty-four hours, her make-up smeared all over the bathroom, Artemis has taken up residence on top of her wardrobe, and Sophie is in despair. And all her unconventional mother can suggest is "Dr. Roberts' Complete Dog Training and Care Manual". Determined to rise to the challenge, Sophie soon realises that she'll need more than a business plan to cope with all this ...
Why I like it?
I found this book very easy to read, but really enjoyed it. Was one of those books that leave a smile on your face at the end. It is fairly predictable but I enjoyed it all the same.
