Review - Does My Bump Look Big in This? by Amy Lynch

the MOTHER of all comedies is due... Newlyweds Barry and Becky are just back from their tropical honeymoon. The tans are gorgeous, and it was five star luxury all the way. But there's a problem. Barry's desperate for a baby, and Becky's not quite so keen. Surrounded by pregnant friends and a mother who's talking about the ticking of invisible biological clocks, Becky starts to feel the pressure. When a surprise pregnancy rocks the boat, Becky's friends and family are rooting for her all the way. Will she navigate the choppy waters to motherhood? Will she survive antenatal classes? Can she avoid stretchmarks, indigestion and her dreaded boss? And most importantly of all... does her bump look big in this?

She’s baaaaack!!!! Omg I have never laughed so hard while reading before!!! Becky is the most fantastically, ridiculous character I have ever come across. I forgot just how much I missed her over the top antics since we first met her and Barry in Bride Without a Groom. While I’m glad I don’t know her, or anyone like her, in real life, I’m equally glad that I can enjoy all of her craziness in print! Poor Barry, bless his heart, is just along for the ride. A supporting character on The Becky Show. I don’t know how he puts up with her and still manages to retain his sanity, or his hair. It must be love! I just find it so entertaining how people respond to her, and I’m baffled as to how she gets away with it all! Everyone’s reaction to her, and Becky’s own logic/reasoning makes this story what it is. A hilarious, well written, escape from reality that will leave you in stitches!

My only issue was the ending. It was extremely abrupt. I actually sat there swiping the page thinking there was something wrong with my Kindle, like maybe it didn’t load the last couple pages. I guess I was kind of surprised it ended as such a pivotal point, and it literally just left me hanging and thinking, that’s it? I will admit though, if that was the authors intention, to leave us all wanting more, than mission accomplished! I can’t wait to see where the story picks up next time. Becky is truly one of a kind, and her story is unlike any other. Ms. Lynch has outdone herself with this second installment!
