    Outstanding

    Lia thought she had it all with Sam, but tragedy has sent her fleeing Hollywood and him. Popular Chef Becky loves her husband Andrew, but detests her interfering nasty mother-in-law. Kelly works hard so that she and her spouse can live a better life than she did as a kid, but her husband Steve lost his job and seems not to care about anything even her. Reporter Ayinde is married to a basketball superstar Richard who she though was faithful to her, but now knows he is just like every other jock, using the wrong head to break his vows................................ Lia meets the other three women, who already are friends and pregnant. She joins their circle as she sees sisters with spousal troubles. Can this quartet provide the safety net and support that each one desperately needs at a critical time in their prospective lives?......................... LITTLE EARTHQUAKES is a strong insightful character study that runs along four subplots that rotate between the women, but intersects as each tries to be there for the others. The story line hooks family drama readers from the start as the tales seem real, touching, and somewhat amusing though serious. The key cast comes across as friends and neighbors helping one another cope. Jennifer Weiner furbishes a deep look at varying relationships, the good, the bad, and the ugly............................. Harriet Klausner

    Love

    Have read more than twice. Love all of the characters and can relate to them all in different ways. Read before having a child and twice since my son was born, it's amazing how much you can see yourself a young mother in these characters!

    Down to earth and real

    I read this book for a book club not thinking I would like it all that much. But the characters are so in depth and real that I found myself wanting to hear more about them. It's well written and a very real look at all kinds of motherhood.

    A great read

    An honest story of motherhood, friends and realtionships with the thin line of balancing it all. A nice quick read.

    Entertaining but predictable

    Fun, light, entertaining but predictable. Very unbelievable friendships though. We could only wish it was that easy to make such close friends. And a basketball wife without an entourage and help....please!

    Really enjoyed it

    I like this author-not exactly a book that will make you think but it is a nice escape. And sometimes, that is just what you need.

    Decent

    Its a little slow to start, doesn't really get good until about the middle. Still worth reading. Good book overall.

    Good, if slightly predictable

    Love this author for times when i need a break from my mysteries or anything "heavy". The book is a well written story about the trials and tribulations of an unlikely group of friends who are new mothers. Probably a more engaging read for mothers of small children.

    Good Read

    The book wasn't at all what I expected; however, I couldn't put it down. I read this book after reading Good In Bed (my first read by Jennifer Weiner) and I liked that book a little more.

    Great Read

    This is the first book I read from this author and it was a great one. This book chronicles the lives of four women and how becoming pregnant and having babies changed or challenged their marriages. This is a must read for any married couple contempting childhood.

    Jennifer Weiner does it again!

    I think that this is Jennifer Weiner's best book yet. Her wittiness really shines as her story makes you laugh, cry and relive the joys and pains of parenthood.
