I received a review copy
Life, love and a Christmas due date
Ellie is fresh back from her honeymoon and can’t wait to share her news with her best friends Katie and Jane. To everyone’s surprise, mother-of-two Jane has news of her own… The women are due a day apart, on December 25th and 26th, and Katie can’t wait to be an honorary aunt to the babies.
But it’s hard to keep your sense of humor, not to mention your self-esteem, in the face of hemorrhoids and elasticated waistbands. Add a clingy mother-in-law, a career in cardiac arrest and a sex life that makes Mother Theresa look lusty, and soon their lives are as out of control as their bodies.
As the co-founders of The Curvy Girls Club, where loving yourself is the only rule, will the friends be able to practice what they preach?
I have also read The Curvy Girls Club, so I was familiar with the cast of characters. I do recommend giving that book a read before picking up the Baby Club, though it’s not a must. Because this is a novella it goes right into the story, right into the depth of the plot line, and moves quickly throughout the chapters. It was nice to catch up with the women and see what is happening in their lives as they all become pregnant at the same time – not planned! Each woman is of course very different – not only with the pregnancy, but also their careers and family life as well. Super cute and very chick lit, and I loved the little added self-confidence boosters along the way as well!
