Sleepless Nights Review and Giveaway


Thanks to HarperCollins for sending me Sleepless Nights to review! They are also giving me 3 copies to pass on to my readers!

This is the first book that I read by Sarah Bilston. She has also written Bed Rest.

After the pregnancy from hell, motherhood has to be plain sailing, right? Quinn "Q" Boothroyd is in for a shock.
And baby Samuel isn't the only thing on Q's mind—she and her husband, Tom, have some difficult decisions to make in a sinking economy. Do they still want to be big-firm lawyers, or is it time to scrap their former careers and try something new? When a chance opportunity introduces them to an eccentric small-town lawyer, the couple's integrity—and marriage—is tested to the limit.
Meanwhile, Jeanie, Q's younger sister, is having problems of her own. Boyfriend Dave seems dangerously close to popping the question, but is she ready to settle down?
There are sleepless nights all around this summer: one woman will wake up to motherhood, the other to becoming an adult. Both must dare to make their beds—and lie in them.

*******************************************
I personally loved the story between the three sisters. I have three daughters and I could easily relate to this triangle of interaction. It was a very engaging theme and the characters were outstanding. Down side of the book would be that it was only 284 pages!! I could have easily taken on double that!

The author did a great job bringing in real life issues of marriage, new child and career. These are real issues couples have to deal with. I loved how the characters dealt with these everyday issues. I was very pleased at how well she pulled the couple together to work on their problem.

  1. I guess I post my sleepless night message here?
    I had a few after Em and I came home from the hospital. She had her nights and days messed up a lot. I was in the hospital for a week after Emily was born. I had a lot of complications and also slept a lot, or just not able to care for Emily. So the nurses had to do most of the feeding unless I had visitors. So from the get go she had no schedule. And when we brought her home she first kept my mom awake all night because for the first couple nights we stayed at her house so I'd have more help.
    One night I remember most is shortly before her first Christmas she just wouldn't sleep one night. I tried to make her as comfortable as possible. I just tried to do anything that might put her to sleep. When she would go to sleep I would think it was safe to sleep. Well I'd be just about asleep and she'd wake up. She slept very little that night. And the weird thing is we had to go Christmas shopping the next day and she hardly slept at all that day too.

  5. I've had many sleepless nights but not because I have children since I don't yet. I'm in college so usually my sleepless nights involve me staying up to finish a paper or study for an exam.

  8. I have had many sleepless nights, some from sick kiddos and some from stress. Each sleepless night varies in cause and "treatment", but mainly I try to think of the good things to either help get me through the night, or to help me fall asleep. Thanks!

  12. Sleepless nights? That's every night, for me. How do I cope? I write for a few hours and then read until I'm dozing soundly. Yes, I wake up in the morning, book still in hand - hopefully marking the page where I dozed off.

    Looks like a good read!

    I'm also retweeting your post
