Julia Bailey is a true mompreneur, a wife and mother of two boys who is desperately trying to get her business off the ground. After having her first son and actually thinking about what food and fillers she was putting into his system, she knew she wanted to do better. And Julia's Child was born - a company that makes organic toddler meals, showing young kids that vegetables deserve a chance. But how much will Julia sacrifice to see her products on Whole Foods shelves? Her husband is missing her, her kids are spending more time with the nanny, and someone is now trying to sabotage Julia's vegetable fields. Can Julia do it all?
I had a lot of fun reading this debut from Sarah Pinneo. Julia was such a great character, sometimes a little uptight and one-minded, but all for good reason. I sometimes feel like her - being twisted in so many directions and trying to be an entrepreneur and keep my head above water - and I don't have a husband or kids! I give her many kudos for what she was trying to achieve. I have to say, I think my favorite character was actually Julia's husband, Luke. It's so common now to read books where the husband eventually leaves or is caught with the nanny. Luke was a true man, a loving husband, and a wonderful father. The little boys made a great addition to the book as well.
The ending had me a bit befuddled. The last few chapters felt a bit rushed to me, and I kept having to Google terms so I could understand what was happening to Julia and her business. It would have been nice if some of the corporate terms were explained a bit so I knew more of what was going on, but that was really my only issue with the book. This is a strong debut from Pinneo, and I'll be sure to read more from her. Even if you are not a mom, I think this book should go on your to-read list - it's a good one!
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
