BABYVILLE

Author(s): 

Popular author Jane Green (Jemima J., Mr. Maybe) is back with another winner! Julia feels trapped with her boyfriend, Mark, and thinks having a baby will make everything better. However, she can't get pregnant and is convinced he's firing blanks. Maeve is a career woman who gets pregnant after a one-night-stand. And Samantha was happily married to Chris before baby George came along; now she's saddled with baby weight, is disgusted with Chris and lusts after a married acquaintance.

This appealing and addictive novel tackles the challenges of romantic relationships and careers while also addressing various motherhood issues. A chatty writing style, great characters and fantastic plot twists make this a fantastic read. I couldn't put it down! (May, 438 pp., $21.00)
