Why Mommy Drinks is the brilliant novel from Gill Sims, the author of the online sensation Peter and Jane.
Boy Child Peter, Girl Child Jane and Daddy have exciting adventures with Mommy. Daddy likes gadgets. Peter and Jane like starting fires, trying to kill each other and driving Mommy to drink.

Instead, she clutches a large glass of wine, muttering FML over and over, and then remembers the gem of an idea she’s had…

She has one rule: Never sleep with someone twice.
Faith Hitchin wears the shadows of the past on her skin for all to see. To a stranger’s eye, she is a girl with sass and tattoos, a lover of art. But beneath the mystery of swirls and ink, she is a woman alone and in pain.
When opportunity knocks in the form of an invitation to an art project that could change the direction of her life, she’s afraid to move forward. But, like her namesake, she pushes past all inhibitions and takes a leap of Faith. The last thing she imagines is a summer of self-discovery at the hands of a sexy Baroness’ son.

With his blue eyes, expensive suits and evasive attitude, it seems he’s used to getting what he wants, and he wants nothing more than to discover the woman beneath the tattoos in every way possible. Will Elijah’s persistence make her break her only rule, or will there be tears of ink?
