Book revew + Giveaway: Coco Pinchard, The Consequences Of Love And Sex by Robert Bryndza
Since Coco Pinchard found first husband Daniel in bed with another woman, she hasn’t just picked up the pieces: she’s now a best-selling author married to her hunky soul-mate Adam. She feels stronger and wiser and surely the second time round she’ll have learnt from her mistakes?
But things aren’t going quite according to plan… Adam has lost his job, Coco’s grown-up son Rosencrantz seems to have derailed his life in spectacular fashion, and ex-mother-in-law Ethel keeps letting herself into the house thanks to an endless supply of spare keys. When literary agent Angie takes on Coco’s arch rival, the indomitable Regina Battenberg, it looks as though things can’t get any worse. And then Coco discovers she’s pregnant; at 44.
Can she really go through it all again? Sleepless nights, stretch marks on top of stretch marks, and poo as a normal topic of conversation?
The third and final book in Robert Bryndza’s bestselling series is a hilarious diary with Coco’s trademark wit and honesty, tracing the raging hormones and extraordinary twists that take her to motherhood for the second time.

‘Coco Pinchard, The Consequences Of Love And Sex’ is the third book in the Coco Pinchard series, but funnily, it’s the first one I’ve read. However, after reading this book, I’m definitely going to bump up the other two parts to the top of my TBR pile.
Coco is a wonderful character, she’s 44, recently married (for the second time) & is a successful writer. Or at least she tries to be. We all know publishing is not easy, so a good part of this book is focused on all the things an author goes through to publish and market their book. Add loads of humor to it, and you’ll see what Coco Pinchard #3 is about. However, that’s not all. This book is written in the form of Coco’s diary entries and you can see how things develop and all the stuff Coco goes trough in her life in just a year.
Coco is the coolest mother ever, her twenty-something son is homosexual and she’s so supportive of him. She loves him for who he is and doesn’t give a damn what other say. She’s not the type that wants to please everyone, there’s her husband Adam and her son she’d do anything for, but also there are few more characters who appear in this book (like her ex mother-in-law) who just add to the story and make this book even more hilarious.
This is definitely a nice feel good read, perfect for fans of humorous books and those heading for the beach. It’s the only book I’ve read while on holidays (don’t ask, I was around two small kids who were trying to strangle each other every free sec they got) and I can say it’s the perfect beach read. I laughed out loud on couple of occasions and even managed to get the odd stare from those around me, thinking I must be loco or something.
Overall, this was a great, easy, summery read and I strongly advise you to check it out. It’s light, easy to follow, with fresh humor that will make you pick up Robert’s other books. I’m kind of sad there won’t be any other books in the series, because Coco is one of these epic rom com characters that will never seize to be funny or interesting. Who knows, Robert might change his mind and write more parts of it in the future…I sure hope.
My rating: 4/5
