I worked on the book for a LONG time, and it took six drafts before I was happy with the POVs and storylines
The DIY project Ruth’s dad is working on started in the previous book, A Beginner’s Guide To Saying I Do
Like the other books in the series, A Beginner’s Guide To Family Life is set in Woodgate, the same as Everything Changes But You, The Wedding Date, The Little Teashop of Broken Hearts and The 12 Christmases of You & Me
Ally and Gavin from Everything Changes But You make an appearance
Earlier drafts had POVs from Jared, Nell, Rosie and Theo
You can choose your friends, but you're pretty much stuck with your family.
Ruth has everything she never dared to hope for: a husband who adores her, a beautiful home, and a job she can just about tolerate. And now she's having a baby. But having zero experience with babies and a pregnancy that isn't quite as blooming as the magazines claim it should be, how will she cope with this stage of her life?
Quinn loves her family, but she sometimes wishes there weren't quite so many of them living under the same roof. But is she ready to fly the nest and build a whole new one with her boyfriend?
Richard's life is pretty great, until a visitor arrives on his doorstep and turns his whole world upside down.
A whole lot of drama.
