Sam Jones is back! But the perfectly ordinary Valleys girl is now a perfectly ordinary Valleys mam. Her life is as weird and wonderful as ever. And just as random. She is still chasing the dream where her ideal man is a little more like her daughter’s deputy head and a lot less like her own ex. But, thanks to her feisty Anti Peg, she is also about to be caught up in a family mystery which will take her to some pretty unexpected places. Helping and hindering her along the way is a cast of colourful characters, including her best friend, Arse, her ex-squaddie brother, Gareth and her annoying boss, Glanville. Not to mention a Swivelling Squirrel – With a darkly comic core, Random Births and Love Hearts is the long-awaited sequel to Random Deaths and Custard which was shortlisted for the Spread the Word: Books to Talk About award in 2009.
