Product Description

About the Author

Five-foot-tall Milly Johnson is a half Barnsley, half Glaswegian writer of greetings cards, novels and shopping lists featuring gin and buns. When not writing she is either reading, learning Italian, mixing with the Yorkshire glitterati, getting up the council's nose about a Dodworth Road Pedestrian Crossing or ironing school clothes. She lives with her two boys and a quartet of mad animals near her Mam and Dad in the middle of Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

This was another lovely read by Milly Johnson. It was her first novel and I enjoyed it just as much as A Spring Affair which I happened to read first. I did find the Yorkshire Pudding Club didn't grab me in the beginning in the same manner as A Spring Affair, but regardless, I enjoyed loved this chick lit tale and can't recommend her novels enough.

I laughed and cried and noticed the characteristic Milly Johnson smile that appears on my face as I read her novels. It's a dopey, silly, happy grin that is plastered on my face for chunks of her books and it's such a lovely feeling! This grin alternates with sharp intakes of breath at times though because her chick lit is not always so light and fluffy and has heavy subjects thrown into the mix, but I think this makes me love her stories even more.

The characters Milly Johnson creates are so well developed and The Yorkshire Pudding Club was no exception. I cared about all the women and wanted happy endings for all of them. There were times I wanted to give some of them a good shake, but that just shows how much I wanted them to get their act together! Her stories move along at a perfect pace, not too slow or fast and I enjoyed how the women played off each other and how each one had such a different story and attitude towards pregnancy.

The only reason I gave it a less than perfect rating was that there were a few reasons it took me a while to get into this book. First, the story is about three friends and alternates from each one's perspective so it takes a while to get into. Fine, that's understandable, but I also had a hard time with all the characters naïve understanding about early pregnancy symptoms (this could just be due to my over-education of the subject though).

What can I say - just that this book made me laugh and cry all weekend and I felt so empty when I'd finished it. One of the sweetest books I've read in a long time - girly and yet too grown up and deep to be called 'chick-lit'. Heartily recommended.

A lovely novel about friendship and babies. Oct. 28 2014

I really enjoyed this book. Reading about the different experiences with pregnancy for the three women was very interesting. As an unmarried woman with no children, I often find pregnancy to be a scary thing, so reading this book had a particular interest for me because it was like traveling into the unknown.

Johnson really did well developing her characters, both through their current experiences but also through flashbacks into each woman's past. The character I could most relate to was Elizabeth and some of the fears she expressed about being a mother, although we had some different reasons for our emotions. I loved the relationship between Janey and her husband and how it was almost the complete opposite of Helen's relationship with her husband.

There really wasn't anything about this book that I didn't enjoy. The story was often funny and very heartfelt, and I would definitely recommend this book. I have a whole slew of novels by this author and I am looking forward to reading more!

Wonderful April 29 2009
By HH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Ok, it's not often that you find a chick-lit book you find impossible to put down! And as you may see from my other comments here I'm not always a fan, but this is a great book in its genre, the characters believable and with substance (at least for a chick-lit)... and the plot (though not very complicated) is fun and endearing. Enjoy!

loved every one of her books. they may sometimes start a little slow, but she has a way of drawing you into the story so you can't wait to read to the end.
Chick Lit That Leaves the Shallow End of the Pool Oct. 28 2014
By Rae - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I purchased this as an audiobook on Audible and it has made me a Milly Johnson fan. Cannot wait to get my hands on more of her work. Chick-Lit that goes deeper than Jimmy Choo's and Lipstick. Highly recommend.
