“First comes love…then comes marriage…then comes a baby in a baby carriage.” We’ve all heard this saying. In fact, Elizabeth lived and planned her life by this children’s nursery rhyme. What happens when life doesn’t go according to plan? What happens when the life you created falls apart? How do you pick up the pieces? When do you finally realize what life handed you is indeed perfect, even if it was never part of your plan?
Elizabeth “Beth” Thomas is a thirty year old senior associate at a law firm. Married to her college sweetheart, Grant, they have traveled, built their dream home, and are ready to become parents. They struggle with infertility. Grant wants a normal life again. He wants to go back to the way it was before trying to have a baby consumed their lives. Once they agree to go back to a “normal” life, life hands over a different plan for Beth.
Beth struggles with loss and heartache. She leans on her family, her two best friends, and her doctor. What Elizabeth doesn’t see is that her life is going according to plan, only it took a different route to get there.
“Sometimes we plan our perfect life, but life tends to give us life’s perfect plan.”
Review From Melanie From The Nerd Girl Page
“Now most of you know that I am not a contemporary romance reader normally, but when I did the cover reveal for this I couldn’t resist the chance to read the story from what little is given away in the synopsis.
Trust me … if a non romance reader like me enjoys this then it is really worth picking up!! For a debut novel the characters are great, but I feel special mention needs to be made of one of the secondary characters Kate …… at the time of reading I didn’t know that she would be featured in a new book but I am thrilled that she is. I still can’t decide if I “know” her or I “am” her but by the end of the book I am sure you will be looking forward to learning more and I think quite possibly she is the best secondary character created in a debut novel for me since I don’t know when.
Back to main story….. it is good! For the most part the story flows well and the characters are easy to relate to. Personally I would have preferred it all to stay in one person’s perspective (I didn’t feel the secondary glimpses from Jacob’s side helped me any), and there was a little too much with the pet names (but then I am not a big romance reader) but this book will make you laugh, pull on your heart strings, and have you pulling for a happy ending (which you will have to read the book to find out what happens).
Overall an excellent debut outing for Sarah and I look forward to seeing what she does next.
