Summary

A hard-working trainee doctor, Megan Jewell, finds herself accidentally pregnant. She wants a baby one day, but God, not now! Can Megan really bring a baby into the world when she can hardly look after herself?

Megan's happily married sister Jessica wants a baby: immediately. But her husband Paolo is worried. He loves his wife and he sees what a baby is doing to his brother's marriage.

Cat Jewell, the oldest sister, is scarred by the memory of their mother walking out. She wants a baby...maybe. But what's a girl to do when the man in her life has seen and done it all before? Rory already has a teenage son. The last thing he wants is to start changing nappies.

Tony Parsons shows us once again the dilemmas and decisions that confront men today.

Modern-day relationships are tested in this very realistic, contemporary story about procreation and new life.

The annoying family way

I have read other books by Tony Parsons and I loved them (one for my baby, man and wife etc) and this was by far the worst. Very annoying family of females all baby obsessed. Ugh!

Love this book

Excellent balance of humor and emotion. Feel for the family members and become involved in their lives.
