Publication Date: 20th June 2013

Jo has always dreamed of starting her own business, but the arrival of her two gorgeous toddlers has put her ambition on the backburner. Then she hits on a brilliant idea -- a kid's clothing shop with a twist -- and is thrilled when it really takes off. When husband Lee offers to quit his job to look after the family while her business grows, it seems a godsend -- but will their marriage stand the test of reversing their roles?

Jo soon recruits Holly and Mel to help her in the shop. Designer Holly's high flying career has come crashing down and she's moved back home -- but is she ready to manage a major family crisis? Meanwhile, Mel worries her teenage daughter Serena is going off the rails. Is finding out more worth risking her daughter's trust?
At the crossroads of their lives, friendship could be the only thing keeping these wonder women strong.

I was a huge fan of Babies in waiting, it was great so when I found out Rosie was bringing another book out I was so excited.

In the book we meet Jo & Lee childhood sweethearts happily married with two children Zack and Imogen. Lee is very creative and likes to draw & paint. Jo wants a huge career plan of owning her own children's clothing shop with a twist....will it happen?

We also meet Holly and Mel too, employees of Jungletown Jo's shop.Holly lived in Africa with her own clothing shop but when someone so close to her destroyed everything for her she had to come home to her mum's house. Mel is struggling being a single mum to her teenage daughter Sienna.
Yes these women are very strong and are Wonder Women for sure.

This book is great has plenty of laughter,sadness,closeness,friendship and love, I loved every minute of it. Each chapter you flick to a different character and their lives then and now. You easily warm to each character and feel like they are your friends by the end of the book. I enjoyed watching Jo's dreams of her own children's clothing shop blossom and seeing it become Jungletown.

With the way Rosie writes she always has plenty of describtive words and the chapters flow so easy so you can never get lost with which character is who.
I think this book is a must read
