Surviving motherhood? It's all about having the right support network.
Lawyer and new mum Cassie has a husband who converses mainly through jokes, a best friend on the other side of the world, and a taskforce of Babycraft mothers who make her feel she has about as much maternal aptitude as a jellyfish.
Husband Jonathan dismisses Cassie’s maternal anxieties, but is he really paying attention to his struggling wife? He’s started sleep talking and it seems there’s more on his mind than he’s letting on. Then sexy, swaggering ex-boyfriend Malkie saunters into Cassie’s life again.
Unlike Jonathan, he ‘gets’ her. He’d like to get her into bed again, too…
And on top of all her emotional turmoil, she also finds herself advising a funeral director on ghost protocol and becomes involved in an act of hotel spa fraud, never mind hiding cans of wasp spray all over the house to deal with the stalker who seems to be lurking everywhere she looks. Marriage and motherhood isn’t the fairytale Cassie thought it would be. Will her strange new world fall apart around her or will tiny acts of love be enough to get her through?
Funny, perceptive and real, Tiny Acts of Love portrays the rawness of motherhood, the flipside of love and the powerful lure of paths not taken.


Lucy Lawrie was born in Edinburgh, and gained an honours degree in English Literature from Durham University before going on to study law. She worked as a lawyer in Edinburgh for several years, specialising in Employment and Pensions law. When Lucy was on maternity leave with her first baby, she unearthed a primary two homework book in which she’d stated, in very wobbly handwriting: ‘I want to be an AUTHOR when I grow up.’ To appease her six-year old self, she began writing her first novel.

Let me start by saying...Cassie, I feel you girl!! Being a first time parents is hard! I really could relate to the main character in this book. From the very first page I was drawn to this story! I would have killed my Jonathan, the husband and dad, for sending that email if I were Cassie! 

 This book tells the story of Cassie and Jonathan. First time parents to a beautiful little girl, Sophie. After Cassie gives birth something just does not feel right. She tries to tell Jonathan about her worries but he does not seem to want to listen to her...neither do her doctors. As a reader I was really concerned about Cassie! I was praying the entire time that nothing will happen to her! Jonathan has his own issues to deal with, which keeps the reader intrigued! 

 When Cassie goes back to work part time they ask Jonathan's mom, Dita to come live with them. Dita seems like the ideal Grandmother and house guest until an old lover turns but on their doorstep! DRAMA!!! Will Cassie be ok? Will Jonathan and Cassie make their marriage work?! I would for sure recommend this book! I give it 4 stars!!
