"Milked: a Modern Mommy Tale with a Retro Twist" is a New Contemporary Women’s Fiction Novel from Simon and Fig


Publisher Simon and Fig and author Lisa Doyle are pleased to announce the promotion of the new contemporary women’s fiction novel, "Milked: A Modern Mommy Tale with a Retro Twist." Kirkus Review calls the novel, “A fun, frothy read bolstered by a likable heroine and a snappy, fast-paced narrative.”

Chicago, IL, March 23, 2015 --(PR.com)-- By and large, Amanda Keane makes pretty good decisions. Okay, she might not have the best taste in men, but she’s got great friends, a good job, and an independent spirit. That is, until her 30th birthday ushers in a whirlwind romance with a sexy Irish musician who leaves her, not at the altar as she imagined, but accidentally pregnant. And when he disappears, she’s downsized out of a job, her apartment is robbed, and lapsed health insurance coverage leaves her with a C-section to pay for, Amanda is launched headfirst into the life of a broke single mom. But her friend and uber successful ob-gyn, Joy, clues her in to an unlikely temp position with one of Chicago’s celebrity elite that just may be the answer to all her woes. Or could it be just the beginning?

It’s with serious trepidation that Amanda embarks on her surprisingly lucrative new career: underground wet nurse to the offspring of Chi-town’s rich and famous. Amanda must quickly understand how to live at the whims and mercy of the one percent as she deals with the irony of nursing – and loving – someone else’s child, while still making ends meet for her own daughter. And then there’s Cute Daycare Dad (aka Dan), who’s obviously interested in her. But can she afford to tell him what she really does for a living? Is her new job (something she thought went out with the 19th century) a shameful thing? Just another way of selling her body? Or does it have something to teach her after all?

A novel of motherhood, its many demands, and all the little triumphs along the way, Milked is a warm and witty debut about making tough choices and traveling the roundabout road to happiness.

"Milked: A Modern Mommy Tale with a Retro Twist" is available in print and ebook formats.
