The Single Mums’ Picnic Club

Written by Jennifer Joyce


Katie thought she had the perfect family life by the sea – until her husband left her for another woman, abandoning her and their two children! She knows it’s finally time to move on but she’s unsure where to begin…

Frankie is shocked when gorgeous dog-walker Alex asks her on a date! As a single mum with her own business she struggles to put herself first, but maybe she’s ready to follow her heart?

George is used to raising her son on her own – but now he’s at nursery, her life feels empty. So when she meets Katie and Frankie at the beach, she realises that her talent for rustling up delicious picnics could be the perfect distraction!

But of course, life isn’t always a beach and as secrets begin to surface the three women’s lives are about to be turned upside-down…




Fabulous Rom-Com!   5 stars


It’s not often I read to similar books back to back, but although my last two have the same sort of title, they are very different reads.

Katie, Frankie and George meet each other purely by chance; each finding themselves as single parents but for very different reasons and through no fault of their own. A friendship is struck from day one, and they each provide the others with the support and encouragement they need to deal with what life has thrown at them. It’s wonderful to see them become stronger and forging forwards with self-assurance, spreading the net of friendship ever wider.

Jennifer Joyce writes fabulous rom-coms; she has a real insight into her characters and they are beautifully developed. The plot is entirely believable and, set in a seaside town, this is a light and entertaining story with some considerable depth to each woman, showing the flawed side of them as well as the face they show to the world. Exciting, funny and entirely plausible this is a genuinely entertaining novel, and one I have looked forward to and devoured with relish.

My thanks to publishers HQ Digital for approving my copy via NetGalley. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.
