From the Book Jacket:
First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes...a baby carriage? Isn't that what all women want?

Not so for Claudia Parr. And just as she gives up on finding a man who feels the same way, she meets warm, wonderful Ben. Things seem too good to be true when they fall in love and agree to buck tradition with a satisfying, child free marriage. Then the unexpected occurs: one of them has a change of heart. One of them wants children afterall.

This is a witty, heartfelt story about what happens to the perfect couple when they suddenly want different things. It's about feeling that your life is set and then realizing that nothing is as you thought it was- and that there is no possible compromise. It's about deciding what is most important in life,and taking chances to get it. But most of all it's about the things we will do- and won't do- for love.

I have read two other books by this author and they were both pretty good. This was definitely a "brain candy" sort of book. It was an easy, fast read.

I gave this one a 4 out of 5 rating because I found it (along with her other two) very predictable, even though they are fun, they are your run-of-the-mill chick lit book.

Looks good :) I haven't read anything by this author before but I just might pick something up by her soon.

I have a suggestion for you too! I think you would really love a book I wrote called 'Knickles and Dimes'. It's a fun chicklit, with laugh-out-loud characters and a great story. I hope you'll check it out!

Thanks for the review!
