Reviews

“Fishnets & Fantasies is gutsy, cheeky and full of laughs. Jane Doucet has created characters who are real enough to step out of the pages and join you for a nice glass of pinot noir. As funny and spicy as it is, this story reminds us that we mustn’t presume to know what it is to be a person of a certain age. I’m going to read it again, and I would advise book club members to get your orders in. You’re going to have a ball!”

Bette MacDonald, award-winning actor and comedian

“Want a sassy good time and a great giggle? Make a date with Fishnets & Fantasies!

Lesley Crewe, The Globe and Mail bestselling author of The Spoon Stealer

“Jane Doucet, you have done it again! Just like your first novel, you have given readers delightful, multi-faceted characters and laugh-out-loud passages that made this reader blush. Fishnets & Fantasies is well paced, funny and full of slapstick comedy.”

Advance praise for Fishnets & Fantasies

“A baby? Maybe – or maybe not. That’s the big-stakes question that Jane Doucet explores in this smart and funny true-to-life novel about motherhood postponed (maybe indefinitely).”

Ann Douglas, author of
The Mother of All Pregnancy Books

“Jane Doucet has hit the nail on the head and will clip your funny bone along the way with her debut novel. Her entertaining and insightful look at baby fever is a terrific blend of humour and relatability. If you keep hitting snooze on your biological clock, this needs to be your bedside reading!”

Laura Earl, creator of the one-woman show I’m an Army Wife

The Pregnant Pause is a fun, upbeat, entertaining, charming, cleverly worded light read.”
