You’ll laugh (a lot!), and maybe cry (just a little).
A little girl. An unlikely protector. One big secret.
Barney’s finally getting his life together. He no longer lives with his mum, hasn’t been fired from a job in months, and is about to propose to his girlfriend.
So when he’s asked to look after four-year-old Emily, Barney’s perfect world is thrown into chaos. Her obstinate demands, inflexible schedule, and appalling personal hygiene completely derail his much-loved routines. Plus, with Emily around, Barney’s engagement plans hang in the balance. His only choice is to offload the kid as soon as possible.
But the more distance Barney tries to put between them, the more the spirited little Emily works her way into his heart . . . until he uncovers a secret that could change both of their lives forever.
The Emily Dilemma is the second book in the Barney Conroy series. If you liked About a Boy, The Rosie Project, or One Day, you’ll love this hilarious and heartfelt story about a man taking on his biggest challenge yet, and a little girl in search of a dad.
