Caro and Jeff have a good life, they are settled and happily looking forward to starting a family, until they get the devestating news of Jeff being infertile.
Sharon who is looking forward to starting a family, but not yet...and what does this mean for her as she is 8 months pregnant and struggling with the emotions of having a child that doesn't quite fit into her plans.
What a tangled and woven tale that awaits, with Jeff's increasing need to fulfil Caro's dreams of becoming a mum .

The setting and pace of the story is a real page turner, and makes for a fearful read full of dread and suspense. The characters are varied and not always likeable, which makes for a great remit to discuss this book from various angles.
This is a rollercoaster of a read and awaiting the outcome desired is fuelled with tension, but for whom?

Written in her consistently readable and engaging style, I've always found Huber's work highly enjoyable. She has such a talent for disarming her readers with gentle, easy prose, before ratcheting up the tension with unexpected and surprising ferocity. Her writing can pack a considerable punch and her latest novel, 'Baby Dear', is such a fine example of this.
I'd say this book is a tale of two halves. The first is a nice, light, introduction to the main characters and settings. The pace is oh so comfortable (some might even say slow) and readers unaware of the depth and substance of Huber's craft might perhaps find themselves impatient to sample the promised psychological thriller. On the other hand, those of us familiar with her style are content to bide our time and, like thrill-seekers on the first ascent of an eagerly anticipated white knuckle ride, savour the delicious anticipation of what's to come. And Huber never disappoints.
The transition to the second half of the novel is quite shocking and from then on Huber is merciless as she drags her readers towards a graphic and breathtaking climax that in my opinion is her best yet. The risk of spoilers necessitates brevity at this point but I'd say that, time and time again, she maintains the pace of her atmospheric narrative and avoids weighing things down with unnecessary detail. Her extensive research is apparent but never overstated and her product an excellent story that's as compelling and believable as any of the best dramas on prime time TV.
Heartfelt thanks to Linda Huber for her unforgettable 'Baby Dear'. Terrific entertainment!

This is the second book I’ve read by Linda Huber and I’m looking forward to reading more of her work. Her sensitive style is easy to digest, which is half the battle and she cleverly entraps the reader from page one. The reader must discover what will happen to Caro and Jeff, the couple who want a baby but can’t have one, and Sharon and Craig, who are expecting a child but don’t want one. The author deftly shows how an infertile man can be driven to extremes to keep hold of his woman. His disintegrating grip on reality is beautifully portrayed. Julie, a single mother, becomes involved in the drama and becomes a main strand to the story. As with all good thrillers, the tension mounts and the unpredictable outcome keeps the reader gripped to the end. Baby Dear is well worth your time.

I like the ideas behind the story: a selection of men and women with different emotions and hopes around having children, and an exploration of the ways that they relate to each other. Sadly for me it doesn't work on any level. For a start, it isn't a 'thriller'. There is no mystery; most of the time we exactly what is going on for all the characters. There's no suspense; it is patently clear from the beginning what will happen and who will survive the various challenges. There's not much human interest; I felt that real thought had gone into the characters' motivation, but none of them sprung alive as real people. Perhaps one of those books that would have benefited from a real good editor.

This was such a gripping novel, drawing you in, hoping for the best possible outcome. I thoroughly enjoyed the build up, trying to second guess what would happen next, if everything would turn out well after all. An excellent read!

Huber has a gift for great storytelling, supported by layered and deeply believable characters that could just as easily be someone you know. Another fabulous page turner. I look forward to see what she comes up with next!
