The Accidental Mother

The Accidental Mother by Rowan Coleman...

Sophie Mills adores her shoe collection and her job as a corporate party planner in London. Her career is all-consuming, which is fine because she can never make a decision when it comes to men. Just when she is finally about to accept a lunch date, a social worker informs her that her best friend since grade school, Carrie, has died, naming Sophie guardian of her two daughters, six-year-old Bella and three-year-old Izzy. Reluctantly, Sophie agrees to take care of the children until their father, who left three years ago, can be located. How hard can it be to temporarily take care of two girls? And she did promise Carrie, even though she was drunk at the time. Sophie has a lot to learn about children, and by caring for Bella and Izzy, she discovers what it means to be connected to people rather than focused on her next promotion. British author Coleman creates witty and endearing characters and delivers an exceptional and touching read about loss and love

My friend loaned me this book, and at first i was skeptical! I havent really read alot of adult fiction so i was iffy! But It was Amazing! I'm so glad i read The accidental mother. First it is set in London so everything is very Proper. I loved the language (Telly always made me laugh) and the society of London. Second the characters are really relatable. I loved Career-driven Sophie who has a love of shoes. The two little girls were adorable also. Louis was so much fun to read. At first you though he was the bad-boy, and you get to see him develop! Overall such a cute story line that rowan wrote exquisitely. I couldn't put this book down and it was freshly wonderful!
