Cynthia Smarts Midwife Crisis by Liz Davies **Book Review** @rararesurces

Hello my book friends!

This was such a fun book! Made me smile and laugh! The perfect afternoon escape!

Cynthia Smart’s Midwife Crisis

Midlife crisis? What midlife crisis?

At forty-four, Cynthia Smart is exactly where she wants to be. Almost.

In a couple of years, she’ll be the CEO of the company she’s spent her most of her adult life working in. For now, though, she’s still busy shimmying up the greasy pole of corporate business. She’s single, carefree, and independent, and nothing can stop her getting what she wants and deserves.

Until she discovers she’s pregnant.

Determined to have her cake and eat it, she’s convinced that having a baby will make little difference to her life, and that she will be one of those women who can hold down an incredibly demanding job and also be a perfect mother.

But as her pregnancy progresses and her life slowly falls apart, she has the sneaking suspicion that Max Oakland, the new guy on the block, is out to steal her dream job. That she’s terribly attracted to him doesn’t help, nor does the fact that he’s devilishly handsome, appears to be a really nice fella, and is good in a crisis.

When she gradually comes to realise that something has got to give, what she doesn’t want it to be is her heart.

Perfect for fans of Mandy Baggott, Heidi Swain, and Holly Martin.

My Thoughts

This was FUN! Liz Davies always writes such relatable stories packed with loads of humor and heart. Cynthia has the career of her dreams. At only 44 she is targeted to be CEO in the next few years that is until… *bum bum bum* A pink line on the pregnancy test. Determined not to let a minor thing like a baby change anything, Cynthia is convinced that she can have it ALL. Loved how real and relatable this was. I think we all idealize having a baby until that little bundle of joy finally arrives. It was so humorous watching Cynthia deal with her changing body as her pregnancy progressed. I really loved her as a character, I would have love to go to lunch with her and discuss her goings-on. I also loved Macs. He really was the nicest guy ever and still Cynthia was so suspicious of him trying to take her job. The relationship between these two was so great. Once again Liz Davies put a big smile on my face and hope in my heart. The perfect little afternoon Escape.

Author Bio –

Liz Davies writes feel-good, light-hearted stories with a hefty dose of romance, a smattering of humour, and a great deal of love.

She’s married to her best friend, has one grown-up daughter, and when she isn’t scribbling away in the notepad she carries with her everywhere (just in case inspiration strikes), you’ll find her searching for that perfect pair of shoes. She loves to cook but isn’t very good at it, and loves to eat – she’s much better at that! Liz also enjoys walking (preferably on the flat), cycling (also on the flat), and lots of sitting around in the garden on warm, sunny days.

She currently lives with her family in Wales, but would ideally love to buy a camper van and travel the world in it.
