‘Intelligent, thought-provoking fiction that you want to keep reading…I completely bought into Sophie. I wanted to give her a hug. It’s a couple of days since I finished the book, but I keep wondering how she’s getting on. She’s not alone though – all the characters come off the page and into your life. It’s a great story too: I read it in a couple of sittings…’ The Book Bag.

‘Keep an eye out for blogger and new author Isabella Davidson. Her debut novel, The Beta Mum, Adventures in Alpha Land is funny, relevant, entertaining, a bit suspenseful and very reminiscent of Sophie Kinsella and Liane Moriarty’s love child…if they were to ever have one…you know in chick-lit land.’ Jennifer Castro, Goodreads
‘Forget politics…this is a world that’s more dog-eat-dog! The Beta Mum is the hilarious fish-out-of-water tale of Sophie, a Canadian, who ends up pitted against the rich, socialite mums of west London. Isabella Davidson’s debut novel really astutely follows her escapades as she tries to settle in and make friends, while finding her own place in this new, glossy world. Highly recommend!’ Ex- editor, Harlequin books
‘Funny, moving, and thoroughly entertaining, THE BETA MUM ADVENTURES IN ALPHA LAND by Isabella Davidson really hit the perfect note for me. Sophie was likeable and really relatable, and the other assortment of characters in this novel were superb too. The world of the rich and famous was opened up in front of my very eyes but like all things in life, nothing is ever quite what it seems. Well-paced and entertaining from start to finish, THE BETA MUM ADVENTURES IN ALPHA LAND by Isabella Davidson is the perfect tonic after a hard day, and I highly recommend it.’ Booksofallkind

‘I really enjoyed this book. It was funny and observant, and I really empathised with Sophie and her plight…Davidson has some really good insights into marriage after children and the effect that virtual life has on one’s real life. Hopefully this is the first of many books for her.’ Kaci Loves Books
