Book Description

Meet Louise, 38, Toni, 26 and Gemma, 18. They are all expecting babies in September.

One of them conceived in a hurry because she was running out of time. One of them fell pregnant to keep a man and one got knocked up by mistake after a one-night-stand.

But none of them realized what they would come up against as they face nine long months of pregnancy, and the reactions of friends, family and colleagues. Meeting through an online forum, they form an unlikely but powerful bond.

When it seems that all they have is each other, their lives will be thrown into turmoil, as a blast from the past threatens to destroy everything.

Babies in Waiting is a heart-warming novel about motherhood, friendship and finding love at the most surprising time in your life. It is also very funny, sexy and utterly compelling.

'Babies, boys and best friends. This is a brilliant book with wide appeal ... I'd highly recommend this one for fans of the Sophie Kinsella school of chick-lit. It's a perfect holiday book whether you plan to read it all in one go or dip in and out in-between dips in the pool' Bookbag.

By Sharon TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
At first glance you wouldn't think that any of these three women would have anything in common, Louise is a career woman, Toni is happily married and Gemma is still at school and they all fall pregnant under different circumstances... one of them gets pregnant after a one-night stand, another falls pregnant straight after being told that she has fertility problems and the third got pregnant on purpose to try and keep her man but you'd be surprised at which is which.

The book is told in segments covering the three trimesters of pregnancy and the first three months of motherhood and is told in the perspective of each of the women. At first when the three women discover they are pregnant they do not know each other but through the wonders of modern technology and social networking they become acquainted and grow close as friends. However, as with most friendships there are ups and downs that threaten to tear them apart.

You definitely don't have to be a mum or pregnant to enjoy this book as although the backdrop of the book is about the stages of pregnancy and motherhood, the characters and events draw you in as if it's happening to people you know.

I was hooked from the start so much so that once I started reading, during my lunch hour yesterday, I did not want to stop but sadly that thing called work got in the way and I had to put it away. I'm extremely glad that I'm not working today as I continued reading this last night and finally finished it in the early hours of this morning so to say I've got bags under my eyes today is an understatement!

I know it's only April, so plenty more months to go, but I think this is highly likely to be on my top ten books read this year. I hope it's not too long till we get another book from Rosie as if this one is anything to go by, the next one is also sure to be a fantastic read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing. Really Enjoyable. 9 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a must for women that are pregnant, want to be pregnant, have recently had a baby, or had a baby 20 years ago! It is a thoroughly enjoyable, touching read. I had my baby just over a year ago, and this took me back to the baby forums, the madness you go through while pregnant, the paranoia, the mental behaviour and general screeching you do at husbands, just for them breathing. It had me chuckling along, and it took me right back to my pregnancy... almost made me miss it!

The three main characters, Toni, Gemma and Louise, are all very likeable, but all are flawed, all going through pregnancy and their lives the best they can. Gemma is the youngest at 18, Toni 26 and Louise 38, so all very different ages. But I like that, we are all the same when it comes to pregnancy and having babies. The book changes from chapter to chapter focusing in turn on them, and I loved them all and wanted them all and their babies to be fine. Really enjoyable book. Completely recommend it, just make sure you got time to read it or you may lose some sleep trying to finish it in the small hours of the morning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read! 7 Jun. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book really quickly! Thoroughly enjoyed it on the basis that I've had two children and met one very close friend in particular through a baby website when I was pregnant the first time 5 years ago. We are still firm friends! I think this book is only really suitable for someone who has recently had children, you can really relate. I liked the different women, the characters were brilliant. I liked the different scenarios of each woman, I felt they were very realistic. Took me just two sittings to read, I look forward to more from this author. Very much!

Format:Paperback
This is a lovely book about 3 pregnant women. It's an easy read and since I am pregnant, it was nice to read through each of the women's different stages of pregnancy. As others have mentioned, the ending did feel a little rushed and some parts were a bit far fetched, however it would be boring if it were completely true to life!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Enjoyable Read 30 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. The book tells the story of three women Louise, Toni and Gemma. Each section is broken down to follow each women. What I also liked was that it explained the situations they were in before they got pregant.

Louise is the oldest and falls pregant after a one night stand. Toni is married to James and goes to the doctor beause she is having other problems and gets told to hurry up and have a baby as her ovaries are failing her. Then Gemma who is only 18 and wants to get pregant for all the worng reasons.

The women don't know know one another and they all join an online forum and before long they are meeting up and becaming friends. They each have different problems arise and have to deal with them. Also liked the fact that is followed them after they had had their babies and you could see how they faced everyday situations.

Great book and recommend to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unputdownable 26 Mar. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this book at a really tough time in my life, after the death of a close family member, and I can honestly say that it was totally engaging and was like my little paperback friend, ready to give me a quick hug and whisk me off to another place for a while! Put your feet up and get stuck in.
