Mums Just Wanna Have Fun by Lucie Wheeler

4 Fun Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟


Meet Nancy…

Single mum Nancy will do anything for her little boy. Jack’s autism makes life difficult at times, but she’s determined to ensure he lives the best life possible. So, when her best friend Harriet suggests a holiday to Ibiza, Nancy is torn: will Jack cope with the change in routine…will she?

And Harriet…

Workaholic mum Harriet convinces Nancy it’s the break they all need. A chance to have some fun with the kids, away from the stresses of normal life. And she’s determined to switch off her laptop, ignore her inbox, and just have fun with her kids for seven whole days…

Cocktails and kids’ club – what could go wrong?

Ibiza is beautiful, but Jack struggles with everything, Harriet refuses to put her laptop away, and Nancy begins to think she’s made a huge mistake. And then Nancy meets Cameron and his young son, Aiden and discovers that sometimes the best fun happens when you least expect it…

Can these two single-mum’s swap their mummy guilt for sunglasses and sangria?


This was a fun and sometimes serious book all about the ups and downs of being a mom…. as a mom of three almost grown children I can honestly say it is the best, most rewarding, and most challenging part of my life…. i’ve never doubted my abilities as a mom…in fact I’m pretty confident that I am pretty darn good at it…. it might be the one thing in my life I am pretty darn sure of…. I have also been a single mom for the past five years… and though there were a few added challenges and struggles it has been pretty easy thanks to an amazing support system and the fact I have pretty darn good kids…. what does this have to do with this book you might ask? It really has everything to do with it, it is the perspective I am going into this book with… I love being a mom, I love my kids, and I Believe as mothers we all need to support one another….*steps off soapbox*

Nancy is a newly single mother struggling to come to terms with the fact that her ex probably isn’t going to step up and be the father that her son Jack deserves…. Jack is autistic and therefore Nancy’s challenges are a bit different than most women in her situation…. Harriet her BFF is also a single mom A confident career woman…. but not so confident when it comes to motherhood she is extremely overwhelmed and feels like such a failure when it comes to her abilities as a mother… and the situation is not helped out by her own mother…..

Nancy and Harriet decide they need to have some fun so they pack up the kids and head on vacation to Ibiza…. but can Harriet stop working while on vacation? And can Nancy come to terms with the fact that her ex cannot be the father that Jack deserves? While on vacation the girls meet some new friends and perhaps even a love interest….

I liked both Nancy and Harriet and I liked the friendship that they shared with one another….. I think this book is probably going to be more appreciated by mothers… I think you will find the situations, challenges, and the judgments more relatable if you have gone through them yourself…. this was a fun read, with some laugh out loud moments, and also some moments that made you think… what would I do in that situation?

Absolutely recommend as a fun fluffy beach read especially if you are in Ibiza…
