Falling in love is easy...starting a family is far from it.
Sometimes, the hardest part of becoming a parent is keeping a straight face... Just ask Jamie and Laura Newman, who (thanks to a rather relaxed attitude to contraception) find themselves about to have a baby. It's obviously a terrifying prospect for a newly married couple, but as long as they stick together they'll be just fine... right?
They'd better because the path between falling in love and those first few baby steps is littered with obstacles. Featuring a hilarious cast of characters including an overbearing mother-in-law, a terrifying midwife and at least one chorus of mating humpback whales, LOVE AND SLEEPLESS NIGHTS is the hilarious follow-up novel all about what happens beyond the happy ever after.
Already an eBook hit, Love and Sleepless Nights is finally out in old-fashioned paperback, so you have no excuse not to treat yourself to this funny, truthful tale of a newly married couple who find themselves having a baby much sooner than they expected! - New!
... a hilarious, emotional and painfully honest account of having children... Yet again Nick Spalding managed to make me laugh until my sides hurt and I had tears running down my face. The camping scenario causing me to stop breathing from laughter. Not only did I laugh I got quite emotional too. That is down to the sheer brilliance of Spalding's writing. Beneath the laughter is yet again a remarkable story of a couple who are genuinely in love. I really look forward to any more Jamie and Laura books. I'm now off to order every book that Nick Spalding has written. - Shaz's Book Boudoir Blog
'I don't want to say too much about this book because it is genuinely hilarious and I worry that I might ruin it by talking about events that happen. But what I will say is that there are many laugh out loud moments... at a few points I was overcome with laughter and ended up snorting with laughter in quite an embarrassing way, but the story is so funny that you just can't help yourself!
I've not long finished reading this fantastic novel and I already cannot wait to see what Nick Spalding brings out next!
Love...And Sleepless Nights is such a fun book! It will make you cry with laughter! It is hilarious, highly enjoyable and it is a book that you won't want to put down. I'm now telling everyone I know to give it a try! Brilliant'. - Reading in the Sunshine Blog
A pure laugh out loud roller coaster of a story that entertained my colleagues and myself for a day...packed with witty dialogue, colourful language that regularly changed the pages blue and ridiculous scenarios that made for wonderfully funny reading. 'Love and Sleepless Nights' is a delightfully witty and crude story, about finding the one, settling down into married life and having to deal with the unexpected bump in the night. A story that had me howling with laughter until my sides ached, this book is a refreshing coming of age love story and Nick Spalding is definitely an author I shall be looking into. - Handwritten Girl Blog
Nick Spalding is an author who, try as he might, can't seem to write anything serious. He's worked in the communications industry his entire life, mainly in media and marketing. As talking rubbish for a living can get tiresome (for anyone other than a politician), he thought he'd have a crack at writing comedy fiction - with an agreeable level of success so far, it has to be said. Nick lives in the south of England with his fiancee. He is approaching his forties with the kind of dread usually associated with a trip to the gallows, suffers from the occasional bout of insomnia, and still thinks Batman is cool. Nick Spalding was one of the top ten bestselling authors in eBook format in 2012.
