I have always enjoyed Rowan Coleman's books so I'm always pleased when I spot a new one of hers. I was especially pleased when I picked up The Accidental Family because I realised it is a sequel to one of her earlier books - The Accidental Mother. I had read this a while ago and really enjoyed it so it was interesting to see what happened to the characters afterwards. Having said that though, The Accidental Family can be read as a stand alone novel although it does have an added value if you read The Accidental Mother first. In the first book Sophie Mills suddenly finds herself looking after her best friend's two daughters after a fatal car accident. At the ... Read the complete review

*****THE SYNOPSIS***** Six months ago, city girl Sophie Mills gave up everything to move to Cornwall. All to be with the man she thinks she loves, and his two daughters who she knows she loves. But adjusting to life as a semi-permanent mother in the countryside isn't quite as easy as Sophie imagined it would be. Designer shoes aren't nearly so readily available - not that she ever has any occasion to wear them - and her best pair of vintage Manolo's have already found their way into the girls' dressing-up box.Sometimes Sophie doesn't recognise herself; which most of the time makes her happy but every now and then scares her to death.

I was really excited when I saw Rowan Coleman's 'The Accidental Family ' while in Tesco. I am a big fan of Rowan Coleman's style of family orientated Chick Lit, and loved the predecessor to this, 'The Accidental Mother'. However I found that although I enjoyed this book it was not as good as the first one Without giving too much away if you haven't read 'The Accidental Mother', City Girl Sophie Mills is left to bring up her best friend's two little girls Bella and Izzy when she passes away and their father cannot be found. Sophie knows nothing about children and currently has no desire to have any, and finds her life being turned upside down with hilarious ... Read the complete review

'The Accidental Family' is the sequel to Rowan Coleman's book 'The Accidental Mother'. I read 'The Accidental Mother' a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it, so I was happy to find the follow-up in Borders as if I've enjoyed a book, I love finding out what happens next in the lives of the characters. 'The Accidental Mother' is the story of a London career girl called Sophie who has to take custody of her best friend's two little girls after their mother is killed in a car accident and nobody knows where their father is. Looking after two little children is a completely alien concept to Sophie and the book tells the story of her struggle to adapt to the ... Read the complete review
