Since Coco Pinchard found first husband Daniel in bed with another woman, she hasn’t just picked up the pieces: she’s now a best-selling author married to her hunky soul-mate Adam. She feels stronger and wiser and surely the second time round she’ll have learnt from her mistakes?
But things aren’t going quite according to plan... Adam has lost his job, Coco’s grown-up son Rosencrantz seems to have derailed his life in spectacular fashion, and ex-mother-in-law Ethel keeps letting herself into the house thanks to an endless supply of spare keys. When literary agent Angie takes on Coco’s arch rival, the indomitable Regina Battenberg, it looks as though things can’t get any worse. And then Coco discovers she’s pregnant; at 44.
Can she really go through it all again? Sleepless nights, stretch marks on top of stretch marks, and poo as a normal topic of conversation?
The third and final book in Robert Bryndza’s bestselling series is a hilarious diary with Coco’s trademark wit and honesty, tracing the raging hormones and extraordinary twists that take her to motherhood for the second time.
*Coco Pinchard, The Consequences of Love and Sex can be read as a stand-alone*
The first thing I noticed about this book was it's fabulously colourful cover... and title. It just looks like something you have to read, something highly entertaining. And I wasn't disappointed. The Consequences of Love and Sex is written as Coco's diary. This threw me a bit at first and I wasn't too sure about it, but I forgot all about these doubts after only a few pages. I love how Robert Bryndza really knows his characters and really takes the time to introduce his readers to them. I even forgot The Consequences of Love and Sex is the third book in the Coco Pinchard series. It can definitely be read as a stand-alone novel. I didn't feel once like I missed out on something - although having read, and enjoyed, book 2, I'm definitely planning on reading the first two Coco novels as well.
Robert Bryndza's writing is highly insightful, entertaining and funny with rich, easy-to-relate-to characters you can't help but love.
Robert Bryndza was born in the UK and lived in America and Canada before settling in Slovakia with his Slovak husband Ján. His debut novel The Not So Secret Emails of Coco Pinchard became an Amazon bestseller and two sequels have followed, Coco Pinchard’s Big Fat Tipsy Wedding and Coco Pinchard, The Consequences of Love and Sex. A Very Coco Christmas, is a delightful introductory novella to the Coco Pinchard series. When he’s not writing Rob is learning Slovak, trying to train two crazy dogs, or watching Grand Designs – all in the hope that he’ll be able to understand his mother-in-law, build his dream house, and get the dogs to listen.
