I LIKE MINE WITH A KISS

Sold out

'I know this is the last bus now, isn't it? The night bus to motherhood, and my only chance to get on it. Nothing else is going in that direction?'

Celebrating her 39th birthday with a night on the tiles, Louise and best friend Annie realise that, despite their best intentions, they're still nowhere near to being like those enviable 'modern women who have it all' – something their friends, family and even their lovers seem all too happy to remind them of. With a few home truths to face up to, and their friendships teetering on the edge, will the morning after be too tough a pill to swallow?
