A fifteen-year college reunion brings best friends Jay, Franny, Emerson, and Stevie together once more. Jay and Franny have been close for years. Now, at thirty-five, Jay is married with a baby on the way, while Franny is still looking for love in all the wrong places. The only thing she knows for sure is that she wants a baby before it's too late. After she's struck out with all the usual suspects, she uncovers the perfect solution: Why not have Jay father her child? Emerson struggles to keep her head above water as a twice-divorced single mum caring for her dying mother. To help care for her mother, she hires a nurse, a handsome Nigerian named Reggie. Emerson is immediately drawn to him. Unlucky in love, she sees in him the kind of man she should have married. Stevie's just ended a two-year relationship with a man she loves but can't commit to. How can she have faith in marriage and motherhood when her own family is so screwed up? The definition of family takes on new meaning as these lifelong friends face life's challenges together.… (more)

chick book — 4 friends, babies, switching around — all find Happiness at End — True? No Way

Fifteen years after graduation, best friends Jay, Franny, Emerson, and Stevie meet at their college reunion. Life has taken each of them in different directions -- Jay is a married man with a baby on the way while Franny yearns for a child as she searches for love in all the wrong places. Divorced single mom Emerson is drawn to a man who challenges everything she's come to believe about finding a once-in-a-lifetime love. And Stevie's life has recently been rocked by a shocking revelation -- the answer to a family secret that will shatter everything she believes about herself.

Couldn't finish it. The author spends more time describing the characters by what they wear than in revealing a plot or moving the story forward (this one has a navel ring-she's wild! this one wears Prada--she's an aristocrat!). Too much telling not enough showing--I felt like I was being spoon-fed the characters' backgrounds, rather than letting them be revealed through their actions. ( )

VERY GOOD

Reminded me of a soap opera of the lives of four college friends and how they lead their separate lives, but come together to share strong bonds and relationships and find true love. (I wrote this before reading prior reviews. Ironic that they called it a soap opera too.) ( )

Soap Opera. It went in one eye & out the other. It is about a group of friends and their troubles. #1 & #2 (male & female) end up together; #3 stands up to her mother & marries a (superduper) Norwegian, #4 finds her father, proves he isn't a murderer, and is able to commit finally, to a superduper guy.
