The Cactus by Sarah Haywood

Susan Green has created the perfect life – for one.  She has a job that suits her analytical skills, a London flat perfectly sized for one, and an “arrangement” without commitment that satisfies her (minimal) desire for a social life, and provides some more personal benefits too. 

But when Susan finds herself pregnant, and then her mom dies and she then finds herself fighting her lazy brother in court for her rightful share of her mom’s estate, Susan’s carefully ordered life is falling apart.  Enter rob, the well-meaning, but somewhat dubious friend of her brother, and Kate, the frazzled upstairs neighbor to further complicate Susan’s life. . .  Will she be able to cope with the chaos her life has become before the baby arrives, or will that event be yet another challenge?

A Reese Witherspoon Book Club selection, and an enjoyable amusing story.
