At almost forty, Clare Donoghue is living child-free and loving it.
Then her boyfriend says he wants kids, breaking off their promising relationship. And it’s not just boyfriends: one by one, her formerly carefree friends are swallowed up in a nonstop cycle of play dates and baby groups. So Clare decides it’s time for people who don’t have children to band together. And so the No-Kids Club is born.
As the group comes together—Anna, who’s seeking something to jumpstart a stale marriage, and Poppy, desperate for a family but unable to conceive—Clare’s hoping to make the most of the childless life with her new friends.
Will the No-Kids Club be Clare’s route to happiness, or will the single life lose its sparkle?
'The No-Kids Club is another winner by Talli Roland! It was well-written and fast-paced, and enjoyable to the very last page.’ —The Book Chick
What did I think?
As usual, I really enjoyed another Talli Roland book. It was a thoroughly enjoyable read with a rollercoaster of emotions from many hilarious moments to one particular moment where I couldn't breathe for crying!
The message I got from the book is that life sometimes just happens and you just have to go with it. Life doesn't always go as you planned it to, and they say everything happens for a reason. Sometimes things happen before you feel that you are fully ready or you could wait for ever for something that you want to happen so much and life changes along the way and that original thing is not possible anymore. Sometimes the best things ever can come from moments like that!
It's about making the most of every situation while you are living in it and don't let obsessive thoughts and behaviour rule your life because one day you might realise that your life has changed without you being a part of it anymore.
I'm getting all philosophical now so I'll stop! It's a great book that is hugely entertaining. I look forward every time to a Talli Roland book and I'm never disappointed! Well done on another fab book Talli.
About the author
Talli can't remember not writing -- she's always loved making things up and is not quite sure how this led to seeking a career in journalism, then public relations, and then teaching, but she has now finally returned to the thing I love best: telling stories.
She is a huge fan of coffee, burnt toast (carbon - yum!), and wine -- in that order. She also loves exploring her adopted city of London, reading anything and everything, and, of course, spending time with her husband and young son.
Talli's fun, humorous, romantic novels have been shortlisted twice for awards at the UK's Festival of Romance, selected as Customer Favourites and Editor's Picks on Amazon, and chosen as top books of the year by industry review websites.
She blogs regularly on random topics and you can find out when wine o'clock strikes (among other things!) by following her on Twitter.
