3rd Time is still a charm...,
on 4 July 2006
When I found out that the author of 'SOMETHING BORROWED' and 'SOMETHING BLUE', two books that I adored, was coming out with a new novel, needless to say I was very excited. I searched the internet for months trying to find information on this new book, however I must admit, when I found out that this book was not about Darcy or Rachel not only was I a bit disappointed but I was also skeptical. I was not sure that Giffin's third effort would have the same easy charm that her first two books did, fortunately 'BABY PROOF' lived up to the high standards previously set by Giffin's first novels!
When Claudia and Ben meet they have an instant connection. They are both hard working professionals who like a lot of the same things, such as great restaurants, living in the city, traveling and their freedom. Early on they both discover that neither of them want children which is a definite selling point for Claudia. Soon into their relationship they fall madly in love and decide to elope. On the surface it seems like Claudia and Ben have the perfect relationship until Ben reneges on their "deal" and decides that he wants a child after all.
Feeling betrayed Claudia decides that this is a deal breaker being that she never has and never will want children. But soon after they seperate Claudia winds up asking herself what do you do when you and the only person you will ever truly love want two very different things?
'BABY PROOF' has solidified Emily Giffin's prowess as a novelist and has definitely scored herself a position on my "must read" authors list!
